Most Helpful Positive Review Great lightweight tinted primer!!
There are a lot of mixed reviews about this product. Personally, I tried it on recommendation by an IG influencer and I am not disappointed. If you are looking for coverage, keeping it moving because this is not the product for you. However, if you want a little pop of color to feel better about going barefaced or to use as a lightweight primer, this is a good buy. The product comes out clear and the develops as soon as you apply. I'm not sure how, but it blends and color-matches flawlessly. I've used in on non-tanned skin as well as after applying tan drops and have zero complaints about the shade. This is a very well balanced primer because it does not dry out, sets well with moisturizer and/or makeup, and BONUS TIME.....it is not oily or greasy which is astonishing in the Florida humidity.
Side note: I have had melasma for years and after reading a lot of case studies, the recommendation is a mineral SPF 50 (titanium dioxide and zinc oxide) + iron oxide (this provides visible light protection). My overly sensitive skin is not a fan of most tinted sunscreens, so I have opted to use this tinted primer in conjunction with a non-tinted mineral sunscreen. It is fantastic duo!
Most Helpful Critical Review Oh gosh no
I went to Ulta to buy a specific primer, but the sales girl convinced me to buy this instead. Huge mistake! It goes on smooth and has a nice feel to it, but once it blends in it turns almost brown. It seriously looked like I was putting on a Jersey Shore costume. I don't know how foundation would look over it, because I had no choice, I had to wash it off. So just avoid this if your skin is on the pale end of the spectrum. If they come out with a version that doesn't have this darkening feature I'd be willing to give that a try.

Salesperson convinced me to buy this but, after seeing it on in non-store lighting, I noticed that it is actually an orange color. It even comes out of the pump orange. Even if the color was right, I didn't particularly notice any difference this has on my makeup application/wear.
Great under foundation or without makeup
Rebecca from Maryland
I was pleasantly surprised with this product. It has a very light tint and makes my skin color even and glow. Will be buying again.
Waste of money
Marty from Connecticut
After reading good reviews I thought I would try it. Fist of all it came not sealed and the tube was only half full.
Extremely disappointed something like this would be sent out.
Not Best for Oily Skin
Michelle from New York, NY
I purchased this primer with the intent to use it more as a substitute for foundation, almost like a BB Cream, instead of using it as a primer underneath foundation. While it does seem to offer some blurring and color correcting effects, it has left my skin sticky and even more oily than my already oily skin. I have yet to apply it as an actual primer underneath foundation, so perhaps it would be better suited for that purpose, but if it makes my skin oily on its own, I worry that it won't be compatible with my matte/oil-free foundation. I will give it a chance because I do like Tula products, I just have a feeling that this primer is not best suited for oily skin.

I use this product every day! I use it with and without makeup. It helps reduce redness and gives your skin a nice even tone with a glowing tint. I have olive skin and the tint gives me a nice color on my face. My skin is very sensitive and a lot of other products give me acne this has caused me no issues, it does not clog your pores.
This works wonders!!!
HollieK from Ohio
I just received this and tried it for the first time today. My makeup never looked better. My foundation went on so smooth. It will definitely be a staple in my makeup routine.
Stacie from Mi
Not good. Makes your face orange. I don't understand it's not blurring or moisturizing. Don't waste your money.
Awesome primer for oily skin
Courtney from Dallas, TX
This product WORKS. The name doesn't lie - blurs my huge pores under make up and helps my makeup stay the whole work day. I have very oily skin so am excited to finally find a primer that does what it says it will.
This is a great product. But, it highlights redness
Dawn from Baltimore md
Use it under make up an you can blur out the redness
I would uy this product again
Secret Girlfriend from Texas
I like this product a lot. it's lightweight and overs good. I feel it's good for me as well since it has probiotics in it
Lauren from Alabama
this stuff is GREAT! I mainly use it when I am self tanned bc it does have a deeper tint to it. I can use it by itself when I go to the pool and want something more "natural looking" along with my water proof mascara OR when I want something fuller coverage, I use this as a primer and my foundation looks FLAWLESS! I've noticed that my make up lasts longer throughout the day when used as a primer, too! IMO, it's an all around good product and very versatile. The packaging is super cute, too!
Best product, hands down
Jill from St Petersburg, Fl
I use thos daily. Sometimes by itself and sometimes under my foundation but it's perfect. It gives you a flawless and perfect glow, minimizes pores, truly a great great product!!
MUST HAVE!! Pure magic
Holly from Issaquah, WA
Probably one of the overall best makeup purchases I've ever made. Not just in a primer category, I mean just simply in make up. Never tried anything from Tula before but the "filter blurring" caught my eye and I read the reviews and decided to try it out. This stuff is amazing! It comes out a white colored liquid and like magic just blends perfectly with my skin tone. Some days all I use is this stuff because it has such great coverage by itself. Absolutely love this and will always repurchase!
FarmGirl8 from Ohio
I like the product. It adds color to your face when you rub it in, however I don't think it "blurs" at all. Not greasy, goes on smooth

Kenz from PA
Such an amazing product! Due to wearing a mask all day as a nurse, I have not worn makeup to work for months until I used this product. It leaves a subtle glow and evens out my red undertone. It pairs nicely with my self tan, too! It also pairs wonderfully with my foundation, giving it the perfect base. I will definitely be purchasing the 2 oz size when I run out. 10/10
Ride or die primer
Morgan from Florida
I see a lot of ads for Tula which for me causes the brand to lose credibility. I tested out in store at Ulta one day on my hand and reacted "wow this is nice". I have medium-tan skin and it gives me great coverage and blurs my imperfections. This doesn't really help with texture, so I combine with a pore filling primer on top of this and I am good to go. I've since purchased other full sized primers and still gravitate for this one bc I like the extra coverage it gives. I don't notice it making my make up last longer but I do notice my extremely dry skin isn't as "flakey" at the end of the day as it would be without using this primer.
In love with the first use
Mel from Silver Spring, Maryland
Would recommend to anyone. I have extremely oily skin and always gotten mattifying primers but since I'm getting older fine lines and uneven skin texture is a big concern. This is the first illuminating primer but doesn't make me greasy or enhance any of my imperfections. Just learned about this brand recently. Excited to try other products in the line.
Run don't walk to get this product!
Kari from Wichita
Truly looks like I have a filter on my face. My brother said I look ten years younger!

Tay from Springfield, TN
Here to tell y'all to go buy this right NOW!!! (Everyone's skin is different) My skin has never reacted badly from any product from Tula, however I know some people have had bad experiences with their products. I suffer from sensitive, combination, acne/redness prone skin! I am one of the few that do NOT believe in primers. HOWEVER, I have tested my fair share of them out. This has been the ONE and ONLY that I feel has done what it claims it will do. When I use it, it makes my face appear extremely smooth and my redness is taken down tremendously. I am self conscious about my skin but I would HAPPILY put just this primer on and go about my day. I have noticed that my makeup looks and wears a lot better when I use this as well! This has become a new MUST HAVE product for me, I will NOT to without it!
P from Tennessee
This primer has a great serum like consistency and creates a smooth surface before applying makeup. I have oily skin and I am surprised that this "moisturizing" primer was able to create such a lovely finish to my skin.
Court from Nashville, tn
Made my skin oily! Didn't like this product at all.
I love this on its own!
rilee from OK
I use this without foundation! I like how it gives a tiny bit of color. I did not turn orange but I also fake tan so it matches nicely. It is very lightweight! It doesn't cover like, scarring or anything but I love this for going to the lake or when I'm going to be outside and don't want to wear foundation. I do think its overpriced but I will keep buying it.
Not worth the price
Alli from NJ
I got this bc allllll of the influencers I follow rave about it. It feels good on my skin but I don't think it makes my makeup last any longer or avoid creases around my eyes or mouth.
When I run out I do not think I will repurchase.
I like it
Marc from Hermantown MN
Just enough light coverage for the summer
Steph from Ohio
This turned my light/medium skin tone a dark orange color! So ugly! Definitely do not recommend! What a waste of time buying!
