Most Helpful Positive Review Love this stuff
First of all, I'm not allergic to this primer/SPF, a miracle in itself. 2. I can barely feel it after it dries. 3. It's fragrance free. 4. Cruelty free. 5. it seems to work pretty well. I've only used it for about 3 days, but it definitely decreased the creasing under my eyes.
Most Helpful Critical Review I was hoping for more from Nars...
It has a beautiful, smooth consistency, love the streamlined tube, but...the primer didn't have much (if anything) over the primers I've tried in the past. I was hoping for more pore minimizing or at least some surface smoothing. It didn't do either of those things.

This primer is the best I have ever used. I have probably tried 50 different ones but this one is always the best.

Aann from Connecticut (CT)
I have used primers before, but not one with a tint. I was willing to give it a try and I was pleasantly surprised. I really liked it. It helped to achieve an all around natural glow. I have fair to medium skin complexion and rose overtones. I share this because I am not sure how natural it will look on other skin types and colors. It was an experiment for me..but I did like it.

Excellent product. Very lightweight and provides a subtle glow. It's a primer but I often just wear it on it's own. Gently scented.
I love this primer - last all day with SPF 35 protection
Ultachic from Clear Lake Houston Tx
Noticed immediately the difference my skin looked less dull more radiant and the foundation stayed in place all day. I love it! Not having to touch up is great!!!
Having sun protection with SPF 35 is a plus for me. Super Happy! This is my new go to primer.
I'm Ready to try next is Nars lipsticks and mascara.
Definitely didn't see a difference
Prettylady6599 from Seattle,WA
Did nothing special for my skin and the SPF actually ended up breaking me out. I didn't like the smell or the texture of this primer. It's definitely has a fragrance and it did nothing to enhance my skin. Will be returning. I usually use Mac Strobe cream or Armani Primers are good too.
Rachael S from Flossmoor, IL
I will not wear this again. It gave me a reddish / pink tint. It was not flattering.
NARS is it for me from Il
Glosses my skin to perfection. Easy to apply. Slight scent maybe related to the spf. Putting this on rebuy.
Adored The Sample!
JonniB from Chicago, IL
I received a small sample of this primer when I purchased the NARS Natural Radiance foundation off of the NARS website. I decided to wear it to a dinner with my fiancé. Let me just say that under makeup this gave me the most GORGEOUS and NATURAL glow. I also applied a bit under the eyes and it made my concealer go on like a dream. It doesn't offer pore smoothening or add longevity because that is NOT the purpose of this primer — it's to prime your complexion. If that's what you're looking for, I suggest getting another primer (I used Milk Hydrogrip) to use on areas with texture or where you need extra cling and then using this primer everywhere else on the face. You can also dab a bit on with your finger for a subtle highlight. Or, for added glow, mix it with your foundation to kick the dewiness. I do this with foundations that are just a teeny bit too matte for my liking.
Overall, best radiant primer hands down.

First product that leaves my skin glossy like a magazine photo. Lots of compliments on my no makeup days.
Even good for oily skin
Sydney from The Midwest
I bought this because I want an SPF that's not especially hydrating (so I can still use my daily moisturizer that I like without getting too oily), and I'm surprised at how well it works on my oily/combo skin. I was worried that it would make my makeup slide around, but if I let it soak in, my foundation goes on nicely and isn't impacted as far as wear time. I use a medium/buildable natural matte foundation (facetape), but I still can see some radiance come through, so that's nice. I'm glad that I've found an spf that will layer so nicely with my other products, so I'll probably repurchase this unless I find something comparable.
Missy from North Carolina
I don't know what it is about this but this primer does wonders for my dry to oily skin! Very long lasting as well! Love love love!!!!
I buy this product over and over again

I initially received a sample of this primer and I had used it once and I was hooked. I have pretty sensitive facial skin and It's hard to find anything to prolong my makeup without breaking out. This primer is just the absolute best! It doesn't break me out, the texture is so silky and absorbs evenly, the shimmer makes my skin look bright, and my makeup stays on all day. I just want to say thank you NARS for such a wonderful product!!
Love this primer
DMThompson from Aurora CO
Great primer that gives a slight glow and a good base for makeup. Glad this was recommended to me.
Great primer except for Fragrance
annielikethelittleorphan from San Francisco
This is an awesome primer. Goes on smooth, doesn't pill. I definitely do feel like my makeup lasts WAY longer. Overall, I do love it. But what is giving me pause about repurchasing is the fragrance. I wish that NARS would make a fragrance free version to avoid potentially having an sensitizing or allergic reaction. Otherwise, it is really a beautiful product. The smell is not overt at all but fragrance can cause more damage to the skin, negating all the good work the wonderful UVA/UVB coverage is doing.
SC from Marana
Absolutely in love with this primer. I am so happy and thankful for the man who helped me pick this out! Feels great and my makeup went on amazingly. I have combination skin and it didn't leave me feeling slick.
Love, love, love
Renee from Gilbert, AZ
If you are looking for a glowy, dewy look this is the one! Does not feel oily or heavy and leaves a beautiful finish. (Also, not sparkly which a lot of "glow" products have- this is a pro for me) and it has spf! I wear this under the NARS spf foundation moisturizer and it is so dreamy, I even wear it without any foundation at all and it is a great natural, on-the-go fix
Best product ever
Peg from St louis
Use all over face for nice warm glow and sun protection
Great Primer with SPF
SarahR3487 from Cleveland, Ohio
This has been one of my go-to primers for a while now. I love that it has SPF 35 so I don't need to add another sunscreen product. It has a pink tint to it when you first apply, but it quickly fades into a beautiful, healthy glow. It works great under every foundation I've tried it with. If you're looking for a pore smoothing, silicone type primer, this isn't it. But if you're looking for a moisturizing, glowy primer, then this is a great one!
I would buy this product all the time.
Lil from Concord CA
I have been using this product for a long long time and I loved it. Your sales clerk are very helpful. Excellent Service.
Dawn P from Abington, PA
I tried several primers including NARS Smooth & Protect Primer but NARS Radiant Primer is the best. It creates a smooth and hydrating canvas for my foundation while providing SPF for sun protection. I love this primer.
Mae from Dallas, TX
This is my must-have in winter because it helps keep my skin from drying out, & in summer it seems to keep my skin glowy without getting overly oily!
Mreyes from Portland, OR
Good size, slim tube, squeeze tube instead of pump so you get more product, and had SPF, but it's SUPER smelly.
