Rated 3.13 out of 5 stars
I was hesitant to try this because I did not want to glow like a disco ball, or look like I was constantly sweating. I have used and loved Clinique's other primers (with all kinds of moisturizers and sunscreens underneath) and had no issues on my 60+ year old, combo skin, so I figured I'd give it a try. The Good: Nice primer with just a hint of "glow". The Bad: A little pricey for the size.
The Superprimer Universal Face Primer was an all-time favorite because it made my skin feel so soft & also looked great. I was very sad that it was no longer available but decided to give this one a try. Big mistake. Instead of making my skin feel soft, it actually dried out my skin & caused peeling. I thought maybe my skin just needed time to get used to it before I saw the results the description promised so I continued using it - but nothing changed. For the first time as a longtime Clinique customer, I can honestly say this was a complete waste of money.

This primer is very disappointing. I used to buy Super primer from Clinique which was amazing, they discountineud it and brought this new product which is no good. I do not recommend it, it does not give you the coverage you want as a primer.

I was very disappointed when I realized that this product replaced an old primer; however this 66 year old had gotten two compliments on her skin since wearing it sans any makeup except mascara. It goes on smoothly, and evenly, and especially in the summertime, is great. I fully admit I am a convert!

Please bring back your other primers. This one does not make your skin smooth so my makeup does not go on evenly. It makes your skin sticky and I do not see any change on my face after applying. The prior primer made my skin soft as a baby's skin but not this one.

The salesperson in the store recommended this. It's not very moisturizing and it does have "sparkles." I don't love it. It was way too expensive.

I purchased this upon recommendation from an Ulta consultant. The texture was light, airy, and cool and seemed to add a nice, but not overwhelming, shimmer when tried on my hand. After buying and trying on my face at home for several weeks now, this product really offers no benefit. It goes on light and watery, doesn't offer any primer effects, and the barely there light reflecting particles are completely covered by the foundation anyway. Money wasted to be honest. I'll stick with my Super Goop.

I decided to go with this primer because my Super Primer has been discontinued. I wish I would have read the reviews more. It does not go on very easily & I need to use more product. It didn't cover my pores as well as I would have liked. My foundation didn't go on as nice on top of this either. Also no SPF. 1 star for the light reflecting, but that gets covered up by my foundation anyway. Please bring back Super Primer.

Keeps my makeup in place all day and gives a slight dewy glow, which I love.

I see the responses from Clinique about this product, but honestly, I thought it was just me. I agree that the primer before this was better, but the one before that was actually perfect. I think it was called Pep Start. Instead of remaking items we love and order frequently, please stick to adding other items. Thank you.

My rating for this is no stars. Clinique has discontinued 2 products that I've used for years and replaced them with products that do not work for me. For me this primer was hard to apply without using a lot of product. It also made my skin dry and peel, I'm assuming from the Hyaluronic Acid that my skin is extremely sensitive to.

I liked it, but it was just OK for me.

If I could give less than 1 star, I would. I am supremely disappointed in this product. I hoped it would make my skin glow with the Even Better Foundation as it did with Even Better GLOW Foundation, but it just falls very short.
If you are buying it hoping for the same result, you will be disappointed

Leaves a beautiful radiant finish. Great under make up or even alone. I have oily and acne prone skin and it never makes me look extra oily or cause breakouts.
Quin from Queens
It illuminates and hydrates for an instant glowing complexion, really good looking on my skin, really love it
Sarah from Fort Myers fl
Product way too much water included in product. However I will give the other primer a chance.
Rett from WV
I have used this alone as a moisturizer on days I give my face a break from makeup, over my moisturizer before makeup, and after I have put on foundation as a highlighter on forehead, nose, chin and upper cheeks. I like it the best as a very subtle highlighter as my skin is older and very dry. So far, I love it but don't know if the way I use it will improve my skin in 8 weeks, but it doesn't matter because it provides a nice subtle glow.

Amber from Spokane Valley, WA
I had used the universal Super Primer for a very long time and loved it, but they quit making it and I guess this was the replacement. It is not the same. I wish they would bring back Superprimer!
