Most Helpful Positive Review Love a primer with skincare benefits!
I will start by saying that I have very oily, somewhat acne prone skin with larger pores around the nose area. I have been using this primer everyday for about 2 weeks to see how my skin reacts before writing this review and I am pretty impressed with the results! this primer does have a nice, sweet scent to it, not overly perfumey but if you dislike scents, keep that in mind. I have not noticed it breaking me out and the scent makes me feel like I'm in a spa pampering myself! I like applying this with my fingers and how this primer feels more like an extension of my skincare routine rather than more makeup on my face. it is a nice smooth cream that applies easily and doesn't pill up over my sunscreen like other primers do. While I haven't been using this long enough to notice long term effects, I do feel like my skin is nourished and healthy-looking after applying this. It does not prevent my skin from getting oily, but it really does help the staying power of my products and keeps the makeup around my mouth and nose from breaking up or getting cakey like it normally does! my only con is that I don't notice a major blurring effect for my pores. I will definitely keep using this and consider repurchasing when I run out! I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
Most Helpful Critical Review Pass on this if you care about your skin
First of all this smells exactly like a sickly sweet fake watermelon-y set of bath & body products I had when I was a kid and it's honestly unsettling. This is a line marketed as great for skin and yet it's chock full of overdone fake-smelling fragrance, and I'm saying this as someone who typically greatly enjoys fragranced products. In terms of actual priming abilities I have not been a fan in my daily use of this since I received it. It's a very silicone-based primer (second ingredient is already dimethicone) so I've been pairing it with silicone based foundations and it's still just.. Bleh. I have NEVER in my life seen my forehead lines so deeply accentuated by a product. It's like the primer just seeps in and solidifies the grooves. And I'm young, I don't need my forehead creases from eyebrow lifting to be cemented into my visage by what claims to be a 'blurring' product. On top of that the heavy silicone has definitely ruffled up more acne that usual on my face. So it's really a product of duality that blesses me with the oily acne of my youth as well as wrinkles that aren't even really supposed to be there yet. So in the end, if you're searching for a primer that's actually good for your skin I'd pass on this baby. I got this product for free to review and for that I'm thankful because it's not worth any amount imo

Best primer ever. Don't even need to use makeup if you want.
Best primer ever and great price!

If you don't already have almost flawless skin, this product really isn't that great.
I've got problematic skin (blemishes, uneven skin tone, and hyperpigmentation) and this product really doesn't do anything to counteract any of it. I don't even really see any blurring happening at all :/ It even says it will improve your skin the longer you use it but that's not the case for me.
I will say it's smells delicious, like a really pleasant fresh watermelon scent and it does make your skin feel really clean but unfortunately that's just not enough to ever repurchase :/

I have two classes of primers in my mind
Hydrating & blurring
1.This one really actually blurs your face before putting make up on
2. Make up like the tart primer is more of just coconut facial moisturizer

I received a small version as a gift for another purchase and I am hooked and HAVE to buy the full size. I first started using in under concealer (I don't wear foundation) and I got so many compliments every time I went out. Recently I started just wearing the primer with a little blush and highlighter and I honestly love it. Makes my skin look super flawless and totally natural. I love using this for a "no makeup" makeup look now!
Great for pores

Smooths Out The Skin
Ashley @ Plaid Lattes from Indianapolis
A tiny amount of this primer goes a long way. I love how flawless my skin looks with this underneath my foundations. I have even worn this on its own with just a little under eye concealer, powder, and the matching setting mist. Beautiful.
Good but not worth buying again

I like this for redness but i cant say id buy it again. Not sure i see a huge difference for this price.
Courtney from California
I decided to get this and the foundation while on sale, the primer actually surprised me. It makes my face look really smooth after putting it on and my foundation looks so good and stays on really well.
Jules from NC
I love that this primer smells so good. I have only used this once, but so far so good. My makeup went on smoothly. I usually use bare minerals primer, but they were out at the store so I grabbed this one. It has a great texture, the only thing is I am not sure it smooths my pores as much as bare minerals, but I still like it. I would buy again.
love this primer!!!
b from Oklahoma
this works so well for me with certain foundations!! I absolutely love it. reminds me of tatcha silk canvas in a way. beautiful when applied with the right foundation!!
I will definitely be buying this product again
Ange from Philadelphia, PA
I use this particular around the corners of my eyes and my mouth. Then I use a small amount over the rest of my face. You don't need much. It does such a great job. I love how it softens my face and makes my makeup go on easier and last longer through out the day.
I love itttt
Melly from Utica NY
Bought this item on sale few days ago and I wanted to try it out bcs I saw it's good if you have pores and it work perfectly fine it sits great under my makeup it's smooth and matte and I love the smell of watermelon and my foundation looks great on it.
Andi from Billing, MT
I received this as a sample in my Ipsy & now I'm headed to buy it full sized! It never claims to be a matte primer however it kept me shine free for HOURS longer than any primer I've used! I'm in love!
kjean from Oklahoma
I absolutely love this face primer, it's the best one I have ever used.
Cara from Chicago
This primer makes my skin look beautiful under any foundation. It is hydrating and pore filling so I can use it with matte or dewy foundations. I'm obsessed!!
dani from idaho
Got in a sample size and have used it quite a few times and I love it! covers pores and makes your skin feel soft. Smells amazing too
very creamy and smooth
Laura9574 from Florida
I bought this with the Skin Love foundation and honestly I love the consistency of the product but it doesnt give me the results I expected for the price. I have multiple other primers that work as well or better that were cheaper. It does smell great though
ER from MN
I usually like a more pore filling and mattifying primer. This one doesn't take much and I really just used it on dryer spots on my face and it made my foundation glide better.
Amanda from Independence, KS
Definitely helped my foundation look smooth and go on smooth.
Break out caused
Does from Upland
I say two star because it smells good feels good and looked good so I really liked it but I guess since my face is very sensitive It's not for me I broke out after a week of using this and I have never broke out on any of the primers I've used including drugstore brands so I was very disappointed my face is horrible it has bumps and pimples all on my chin and cheek which I never break out my skin is very clear so I knew it was the primer because it's the only new thing I started using in my make up routine stay away if you have sensitive skin but if not i guess try it and I hope your skin doesn't get affected
Nat from Florida
Great primer for blurring and brightening. Has small shimmer in it but not chunky at all so looks good. Smells amazing!!! I recommend!
Nyx M. from Sanford, FL
Amazing primer for dry skin. It feels great on the skin and makes my makeup stay all day.
