        I love using this product specificity when applying glittery or shimmer eye shadow i will spray this primer water on the brush to help with easy application. Also good primer to use if your trying to prevent makeup from the caked up.

                I love it! I bought the travel size because I wasn't sure how dependable water would be and if it would be worth it..but when I run out I'll definitely be replacing it with the full size! It keeps my make up on amazingly! I have very oily skin so I was a bit concerned but that wasn't an issue! I love it!

                    I have very sensitive eyes. The first time I've used the primer water my eyes swelled up. I just cover my eyes now. The primer water works well over the actual primer and your make up will stay on up to 15 hours or more.

                        When you press down to spray, you can't press down a bunch of times like it's a normal spray because then it won't spray right lol. I was spraying this wrong for a little bit because I usually use a different setting spray. I prefer the way this sprays ! I love it!, I just wasn't using it right at first so just some advice lol

                          • Q:

                            Are you supposed to put on your foundation while the primer is fresh and wet, or let it dry on your face first?

                              Hi There! For a makeup application that will last all day apply your foundation when the primer is 'fresh and wet.' You'll love the finish!
