Most Helpful Positive Review It made using a foundation unneccessary.
I've read the reviews and can agree with some of them: the applicator is terrible. No need for the dropper as it take up MOST of the bottle leaving very little product for the price. It was also very messy to use which caused a lot of waste. HOWEVER, after applying it and letting it soak in or dry on my face, I usually decided there was no need for foundation. Unless I was going out at night, I just used the primer. It made my face look smoother, corrected uneven color and dark spots and felt like I had nothing on.
True, when it first goes on it's weird and you really have to blend it, but once on and set, it does a great job. The only reason I might not replace it (it ran out within a month and I don't wear it every day!) is because of the design of the bottle and applicator (REALLY TERRIBLE DESIGN) and the true cost of such a small amount of product due to the room the dropper takes up as well as how it's wasteful to even take the dropper out because the product pours over the side of the bottle.
FIX THE APPLICATION DESIGN and I'll purchase again.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not what I was expecting
I am 45 years old and I bought this to wear as a primer under my make up. It would be best used as an illuminator/ highlighter. That part of the product I love. As a primer, my make up does stay on all day. However, it does not do a good job of evening out the pores, textures and fine lines. I prefer wear it over my foundation instead. Product is small and does not last for the price. The way it is bottled makes it messy and causes alot of wasted product. I was disappointed in the overall product and disappointed that within less than a month I am needing to buy primer again.

I have always struggled to find a primer I enjoyed but this is the best!!! I have pretty oily skin so I typically use a matte primer underneath of it but this product will forever be one of my favs! It does exactly what it says, it smoothed my skin and gave it a nice glow and when i apply my foundation over top i look absolutely radiant. Everyone compliments me all the time on how my skin looks like it's glowing and all the praise goes to this! The applicator is a little unnecessary, the dropper doesn't come in much help as the product itself tends to completely cover it. I typically just dip the dropper in and use the sides to dab to product on my face and then I smooth it in with my fingers. Overall the applicator issue was not a big deal and I will def be buying this product for years to come!
Love the Glow!!!

Luminous , not shiny !
I like it but it's not my fav
Ad from Lakewood, WA
I was looking for a primer to make me look really dewy and was recommended this by a sales rep at the store, I don't hate it but it doesn't show through as much as I was hoping it would. Even if I add it to my foundation with is another use for it, it doesn't really cause that much of a difference.
A natural glow
JackieO from NC
I use another thicker non color primer all over. Then I apply Pur Primer to top of cheeks, chin, and above eyebrows. I did not tell anyone I was using this. My husband said you look radiant! That is what I was looking for!
Gives you SILVER FACE !!
SonomaBunny from Sonoma County, CA
This primer is awful for daily use. I can see if you are going to a disco and you want your face to look like the disco ball, but the illuminating properties of this primer are intense! I applied my foundation, bronzer, powder, and blush, followed by UD setting spray and within an hour my face looked like the silver iridescent side of a rainbow trout. I'm glad I checked myself in the mirror before I left my house... even with removing all my makeup and starting over, there was a hint of it left (I did not do a full face wash) and I used excess powder to hide the leftover sheen. I might use as an eyeshadow primer for nights out, but that would be the ONLY conceivable use I would recommend. Keep this stuff off your face.
Definitely doesn't blur...
Chloe from Washington
Don't buy this primer to blur anything because it won't do that. You would probably like this if you want an illuminating primer.
PUR is my new favorite primer and Foundation!
TLRSoCalGirl from Carson City, NV
Can not go wrong. Does not clog pores and applies so evenly!
Not for all skin types
Brandy from Oregon
Made my face itch and now I have red bumps ... it's pretty though.
fashionfwd from tx
cakes foundation. strange shimmer & my face broke out. I use other pur products daily & never had a reaction until using this primer
Love the product but the bottle is a pain
Col- from Atlanta, GA
So, I LOVE the shimmer/blur that I add to my Pur tinted moisturizer. But whoever thought that an eye dropper was a good delivery system must never have opened a bottle of make up! Just the amount that sticks to the dropper gets all over the rim of the bottle and then into the lid.... Yes, you know that mess... And I am careful and, no, I haven't taken traveling with me - I can't wait to see what air pressure does to that. The other Pur products come in nice squeeze bottles - why not this one??
Does a good job
Kp from Tampa, FL
Love what the product does for my skin but the dropper is useless. It doesn't pick up any product unless it's on the outside.
Best Pimer Ever!
Gena Luana from TN& Hawaii
This primer does it all! It completely evens my skin & has helped with keeping it moist and has just enough shine too look dewey. I am 44 years old and don't tend to use profucts with glitter. But this product is amazing and would recommend to all ages. My makeup applies so much prettier and even on my skin and it does last as long as I want it too! Sometimes all day and night depending on my plans. I'm really excited I was able to try this st such a great price! Worth every penny! Thanks PUR! Another everyday go to that makes my skin feel like silk!
I 89.9% Like This
Jenny Don't Play from Long Beach, California
Okay, so originally I came in to get a different Pür primer, but they were out, so I tried this one.
I'll start with the few cons. This is definitely not a primer you can wear alone. You gotta wear it under some cc cream or foundation or something. It's incredibly shiny and iridescent so if you wear it alone it looks like you've got unicorn sweat .. in a bad way. The applicator is a bit cumbersome, but it's not a deal breaker by any means. Now for the pros. Holy crud y'all, this makes my almost 34 year old skin look pretty rad. When I first applied this stuff I was like okay this looks like it's done nothing with my pores but once you apply foundation and some powder it has the best filter effect. Very smooth and doesn't get weird with stuff being blended on top of it. I'm glad I tried this out and will be purchasing again!
Mia from California
I was looking for something to give me a "soft filter" effect and this works perfectly. I've also been traveling a lot and this has helped keep my skin from looking tired and dry.
sisi from fresno
Best primer I've ever used. Kept my face hydrated and looking great!
Loved the trial size, the full size doesn't work for me
Mamarshey from SLC
So I had a trial size of this and I LOVED it. I use urban decay all nighter foundation and it worked well. I bought the full size and my makeup literally slides off my face and gets all cakey mid day. The foundation works well with other primers and it worked great with this primer until I got the big bottle. Now it doesn't. I don't know if the formula is any different, but the big bottle is more liquidy than the trial. I'm really bummed. Also, this bottle is messy. The dropper is strange and doesn't make any sense for this product. A lot has been wasted.
Love This Primer!
Mamamarsh from SLC, UT
I got a small travel tube of this primer and it's AMAZING! I've been using Kat Von D primer, but I switched foundation to urban decay all nighter foundation and this primer makes my foundation look amazing and last all day!
Kayyyyy from Ca
I have never found a primer quite like this. Whenever I use it my makeup lasts me all day, and barely budges. I do agree that the applicator sucks and is unnecessary though and the bottle is rather small. Despite this I will probable never switch primers because it's perfect for my skin.
Love this stuff, don't know why
Mtg from WV
I don't like the eye dropper on the full size. The sample is a tube style and easier to use
thegraham_ from Fairfax, Virginia
I got a sample size in my monthly Ipsy box and decided to use it right away under my new foundation. I love the very soft and pretty sheen/shimmer it provides, and the primer seems to melt into my skin and create the perfect base. Nothing about this product is sticky or heavy feeling. I actually plan on purchasing this when my sample runs out. I recommend this! Very cool and pretty primer :)
Love the dewy finish this gives my skin!
LT from UT
I got this in a deluxe sample and read that you could mix it with your foundation for a dewy look. I wear the Smashbox 15 hour foundation, I mixed this in and used a beauty blender. It made my skin look fresh and dewy and stayed on all night. It looked so good that I had a hard time wanting to take my makeup off for bed, lol! I went and bought the full sized bottle the next day. I would recommend trying it and mixing it in to your favorite foundation. I'm 38 so I am starting to get some deeper wrinkles and I felt like it made my skin look better so I'm happy with the results.
Adds a new dimension to makeup

I wear this primer and just st dust on Bare Minerals Tinted Mineral Veil.
Second bottle I have had dropper breaks
Donna from Eastgate
I like the product but the design for the dropper isnt good.. it came all the way out and broke and then wouldn't stay back in makes it hard to travel with
I would buy this again

Gives a glow to your skin but can sometimes be a bit heavy, a little goes a long way
RebeccaJeanne from Coon Rapids, MN
I use this with the 4-1 stick foundation to create a dewy look (I'm not a fan of matte makeup, it's too one dimensional for me). It actually works very well and blends well on my combination, fair, and sensitive skin!
