THE ❤️BEST❤️PRIMER❤️EVER.......

By D Lynn

from Newport Beach, CA

Comments about Physicians Formula Spotlight Illuminating Primer:

I absolutely LOVE this primer. I use it on top of my PF healthy foundation and these two together make my skin look so healthy and dewy..... I use a small beauty blender all over and down my nose and this just gives you a beautiful healthy GLOW!!!! I'm not understanding the "glitter" comments as it does give off a beautiful sheen with NO glitter.... I hope PF keeps this product in their line up because I use it everyday and my skin LOVES it.....the bottle is beautiful, and the product, along with my Healthy Foundation, is perfection. Additionally, I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin with occasional hormonal breakouts and both of these products have not caused any reaction to my skin. ❤️❤️❤️

Gorgeous glow

By Lea

from Wisconsin

Comments about Physicians Formula Spotlight Illuminating Primer:

I've tried illuminating primers in the past that have just left my face looking glittery. This primer gives a beautiful glow though without looking sparkly. And it even works well for my fair skin since it doesn't seem to have a ton of back pigment. I will definitely be re-purchasing!

LOVE. IT.

By Lauren

from Denver, CO

Comments about Physicians Formula Spotlight Illuminating Primer:

I just got this today and I am IN LOVE. Only discretion to this is I haven't given it enough time to see how my skin reacts, but first impression: SO so good. I also have tried to the Loreal Lumi Primer and this one is so much better. In contrast to Loreal, this one isnt sparkly or greasy looking. It almost gives a matte sheen/dewy glow, but is not drying by any means. This does have a bit of a blurring effect as it claims, and I love that too. The Lumi one makes me look greasy. This is a great base for foundation, or BB cream, or anything really. Probably even by itself! I think I would definitely use this on its own if I just wanted a minimal makeup routine but wanted to even out my skin. I know it may not work for everyone, but DEFINITELY worth a try! For years I wanted the Becca ones but couldn't bring myself to spend the money.

Amazing primer

By Irina

from Tacoma, WA

Comments about Physicians Formula Spotlight Illuminating Primer:

I have super dry skin and can use this only before foundation if I am short on time and it wears so well and I don't have any flakiness or dry spots that show thru by the end of day like with most primers/foundations even with moisturizer beforehand. I am very impressed.

finally an Illuminating primer i love

By Babsalot

from Oak Ridge TN

Comments about Physicians Formula Spotlight Illuminating Primer:

if you are like me and end up disappointed with illuminating primers normally, spoiler alert this is the Illuminating primer holy grail. Becca is supposed to be the Illuminating primer standard but at a third of the price, spotlight sets the bar and it is the best Illuminating primer available. once I've applied it to my face, i give it a few minutes to set prior to applying makeup on top of it. it blurs my imperfections, evens my tone and gives my face a very noticeable, healthy glow. It turns my pale dull skin into a radiant, hint of sunkissed all over glow that appears near flawless thanks to the added bonus of spotlight also being blurring primer too. it also has skin care properties to it that help hydrate through the day to improve makeup wear. it doesn't seem to effect longevity of makeup wear but I don't take points off for that. I have primers specific to that. this is to make my natural glow grow superpower type glow that is noticable and vibrant yet still look natural and not over the top. try this if you are searching for a great Illuminating primer. I can't imagine any disappoinment b

My new favorite

By wv mountains

from Back Creek Valley WV

Comments about Physicians Formula Spotlight Illuminating Primer:

I LOVE this primer. I have purchased at least 50 different primers and honestly I never notice any difference whatsoever with how my foundation applies or lasts. I keep trying but never found the attraction. This one is different because of the massive champagne glow it gives off. I use it only underneath my foundation and the glow comes through beautifully (when I use the PF foundation). THe healthy foundation and this is a beautiful match which is now a staple in my arsenal.

Photoshop in a bottle

By RCC

from Los Angeles

Comments about Physicians Formula Spotlight Illuminating Primer:

At first I thought it was just a bunch of glitter but trust me when I say it's so much more!!! This stuff literally made my face look like I was airbrushed IRL. Dare I say this is better than Becca's Backlight Primer??

Favorite Primer!!

By Kristen G

from Austin, TX

Comments about Physicians Formula Spotlight Illuminating Primer:

I've been using this primer for about a week now and I just love it more and more each day! I've never had great luck with illuminating primers including Beccas Backlight primer, I always feel like they get matted down once I put foundation and/or powder over them but this one shined through both the PF Healthy Glow Foundation I paired it with and the NYX setting powder I used on top. I don't find it to be too "glittery" either like some people have mentioned, there's a definite shimmer but nothing I would consider to be chunky. The one fall back is whenever I put it in my makeup back, throughout the day the top always seems to come loose and almost unscrews itself.. luckily nothings spilled out and I probably just got a dud bottle or something but I will definitely purchase again!
