The Dermablend Brilliant Base Illuminating Primer is a great addition to any makeup routine, especially if you're looking for a product that gives you a natural, dewy glow without feeling sticky or heavy on your skin. The primer does an excellent job of smoothing out the skin's texture, making it look more even and radiant. Plus, it's designed to provide a 24-hour wear time, so you can trust that your makeup will last all day without needing any touch-ups.
One of the best things about this primer is that it gives you a beautiful, lit-from-within look that appears just on the skin alone. This makes it a fantastic choice for days when you want to go makeup-free but still look bright and radiant. Even when used under foundation or other makeup products, the primer still manages to shine through and give you that lovely glow.
I was particularly impressed with the texture of this primer. It has a lightweight, silky feel that blends smoothly into the skin without leaving any residue or stickiness. This is a huge plus for me because I dislike the feeling of heavy, greasy primers on my skin.
Another major benefit of the Dermablend Brilliant Base Illuminating Primer is that it helps to brighten up the skin's appearance. After using it consistently, I noticed that my skin looked noticeably clearer and more luminous. It's also formulated with ingredients like glycerin, which help to improve the skin's overall texture and hydration levels.
Overall, I would highly recommend the Dermablend Brilliant Base Illuminating Primer to anyone looking for a lightweight, glow-enhancing primer that provides excellent wear time and skin benefits. It's a great investment for anyone looking to achieve a natural, radiant look.
I received this product for free to review. I was super excited to try the Dermablend Brilliant Base Illuminating Primer, as I have drier, more mature skin that could use some brightening. The texture was very nice and it went on smoothly. Unfortunately, that's where the goodness ended. I noticed right away that the "glow" looked like I face-planted into the yellow brick road from the Wizard of Oz. It was very golden-like, and not a good look for my already yellow-toned skin. It didn't seem to go away when I put my foundation on over it. This is good in the sense that if it works for your skin tone, the glow may come through your foundation, which is the whole point of this. I did try a 2nd and 3rd application on different days just to make sure it wasn't my imagination, but it still left the same gold cast on my face. I'm just not into that sort of bling. Sorry, but this is big no from me.

I have used a whole tube before giving my opinion and I loved this so much I will be repurchasing it again ...perfect glow without being too glittery or over powering and it looks nice alone and blurs pours for the no makeup makeup look or under makeup it is soooooooo pretty I have used several coverages of foundation and all have done supper well ....I liked that it filled in my imperfections and didn't have the effect of maximizing my pores as some glowing primers do ....Beautiful finish. .I like the packaging as well it looks pro and u can control how much u want to dispense

I have tried 8 different primers both Premier lines as wells some mid range products. It has been hard for me to find one that is not sticky finish, or streak when it goes on or crack with my foundation or did nothing. I really like the constituency of this printer it is light creamy, like the title glow not shiny, I use the cc. Ream from this line also and they work very well together. I am glad that they added more choices to their primer selections. I am hoping to stick with this primer h
As I really like the cc cream in this product line. A little product goes a long way and it is a nice size tube,

Surprisingly good coverage for my red skin. It was a little more yellow than I would like but I was able to make it work and still sit very well on my skin.

I like how smooth the product goes on and how it does seem to make skin a bit brighter, especially when wearing alone (not under makeup). A lot of products make this claim but cannot be worn without makeup, and this one by Dermablend really can go either way. However I noticed whenever I wore it under makeup that it pilled so I don't think I'd buy purchase it.

This product is very easy to apply and feels smooth. I don't get the staying power it
boasts about. My makeup doesn't say set much longer than normal. The glow is apparent.
With or without makeup, I love it! from Kentucky
This is one of very few primers that actually does what it is intended! I can tell a huge difference in wear time with my foundation & concealer. My face doesn't require touch ups throughout the day, and an added bonus is that I keep a perfect "glow" that shows through my makeup! (Not too much, just right)
I'm very happy with this product, and it has become a "regular " in my makeup bag! I wear it on my "no makeup" days as well, to give an "awake & bright", look.
Good job on this one!

I quite impressed with how much I actually love this primer. It looks a bit yellow in the bottle and when it first comes out but the yellow tint disappears when blended. The finish is a natural and dewy without being glittery or greasy.

This is a lovely primer that really does illuminate my face. I like to use it under my liquid/semi-liquid skin tint products that have light coverage. This primer helps my makeup stay put for the most part and also creates a nice base for my light-coverage products.

This is a really good primer and I would definitely recommend it and get it again. It hydrated my face and made my skin tone a shade lighter. It has a natural look and feels really good on the skin.

Been using this product for a few weeks now. I love how it's a very subtle glow. So this is exactly what I was looking for. It does not pile and holds make up well. It's a great base for a long day and if you want your skin to glow It is a nice addition to my makeup routine. Love it!

It was a pretty decent primer... i didnt care for the texture as much and only worked with certain foundations i used.

I recently tried the Dermablend Brilliant Base Illuminating Primer, and I have to say, I was impressed with the results. As someone with combination skin, I always struggle with finding a primer that helps my makeup last all day while also giving me a healthy glow. The Dermablend primer did both of those things and more.
First of all, the packaging is sleek and easy to use. The primer itself has a lightweight, silky texture that goes on smoothly and evenly. It also has a subtle shimmer that gives a luminous glow without looking glittery or over-the-top.
I found that the primer helped my foundation go on smoothly and evenly, and it definitely helped my makeup last longer throughout the day. It also kept my skin looking hydrated and healthy, which is always a plus. I didn't experience any breakouts or irritation while using this primer, which is always a concern for me with new products.
Overall, I would definitely recommend the Dermablend Brilliant Base Illuminating Primer to anyone looking for a high-quality primer that helps their makeup last all day while also giving them a subtle glow. It's a bit pricey, but I think it's worth it for the quality of the product and the results it delivers.

I usually wear a heavier foundation and set it with a translucent powder. This cream was super light under my usual makeup routine and wore all day.
Tori B. from Lusby, MD
This primer went on so smooth and blended very well. The lasting power of it is also very commendable. I felt that my makeup just glided on and settled perfectly after using this as my base.
Yaz from Fl
I love it. Lightweight long lasting too
Livv from Boston, MA
I am absolutely in love! This primer works wonders not only as a base for my makeup, but for my skin. It gives you that glowing from within look, makes my skin feel smooth, and blurs our imperfections, makeup lasted all day . The formula is awesome, very hydrating without being sticky or greasy. I would recommend this to anyone searching for a great primer that's good for your skin.

I recently had the pleasure of trying out the brilliant base illuminating primer from Dermablend, and I have to say, I was thoroughly impressed. This primer does an excellent job of prepping the skin for makeup application, but what really sets it apart is the gorgeous luminosity it imparts.
The formula itself is lightweight and easy to apply, and it creates a smooth, even base that helps the foundation adhere better and last longer. But it's the subtle radiance that makes this primer special. It's not sparkly or glittery. Instead, it's a soft, pearlescent glow that gives the skin a youthful, healthy-looking sheen. I found that even on days when I didn't wear any foundation, the primer alone made my skin look brighter and more radiant.
In terms of wear time, the primer held up well throughout the day, keeping my makeup in place without any fading or creasing. I also appreciated that it didn't make my skin feel greasy or oily, even after several hours of wear.
The Dermablend brilliant base illuminating primer provided my face with an extra layer of protection since it contains vitamins C and E. I can not rave enough about the compliments I received after using this primer in my makeup routine. I recommend Dermablend's brilliant base illuminating primer to anyone searching for a healthier and professional primer that leaves your face radiant and beautiful.
Thanks to Dermablend for sending me this free sample to test through the BzzAgent sampling program.

Sometimes I use primer and it just kinda.. sits on top of my skin. The illuminating primer works in connection with my routine rather than against it. No sliding or greasiness at the end of the day.
Dee from Los Angeles, CA
It feels like just a regular primer. I haven't noticed any 'illuminating' aspect when I put it on.
Selly from Orlando, Florida
After testing out the Brilliant Base Illuminating Primer, it has become one of my new favorite products! I've applied it after moisturizing my face and before putting on my makeup. Things I've learned with this product is firstly, a little goes a long way. Secondly, the glow it adds to this skin is beautiful. If you want to wear on its own it works but again, a little goes a long way! Under makeup it definitely shines through the foundation, not too sure how well it shines through a full coverage as I don't typically build up my foundation too much but I do know that it does help your makeup to last! I think if I could say one thing that isn't entirely the worse but a bit bothersome is it does has a stronger scent then some other primers I've used in the past. So if on its own it would be more noticeable, under makeup, not so much. Overall I loved it and will continue to use it!

Dermablend Sampling Brilliant Base Illuminating Primer has been a great addition to my makeup routine. The color is tinted yellow but appears on the skin as clear once blended. It helps brighten my skin, and I receive a nice glow, and it has the added benefit of vitamins C and E, which helps improve my skin's appearance. After a few weeks of use, I have seen smoother skin since there's also niacinamide and shea butter! I tend to wear it before applying foundation, but it can be worn alone. I recommend this illuminating primer compared to my exist primer thanks to the added glow and skin confidence!
