CLAIM TO FAME: A new generation skin-smoothing primer with high-flexibility silicones
FAST FACTS: Lightweight serum-like formula increases the spreadability of subsequent complexion makeup; helps avoid unnatural and uneven accumulation of pigments around the eyes and on dry skin; acts as a light, non-oily surface hydrator for a natural dewy look; vegan formula is cruelty-free and doesn’t contain water, alcohol, oil, and nut
PERFECT FOR: Enhancing base makeup application

”This is crazy. Crazygreatness! I’m over 60. Primers are important to me. I’ve purchased the gamut of primers from lower-end to very high end. And when you get to my ripe age, you need a primer to smooth out the little (haha) lines and to fill in some of the heavier lines. Anyway, I ended up using this primer for the first time yesterday. I had an event in NYC and could not have picked a better day to use it. The weather was hot and muggy–the kind that melts makeup. My makeup did not melt. In fact, it stayed in tact until later in the evening when I arrived home. I have a more and very detailed review on my blog: https://atypical60.com/2017/10/08/prime-time-are-these-two-primers-worth-it/ Honestly, this primer is better than the higher end primers I’ve ever used. I’m hooked. And I’ll be ordering more. I’m blown away!!!”

”O.M.Geeeeeeeeee! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this primer - I never want to be without it! It makes even the worst foundation (I’m currently trying to use up a bottle of liquid foundation that I find super drying) look good. I don’t even care that it’s a disaster of a mess in the dropper bottle packaging - if it was poured directly into the shipping box, I’d gladly scrape it out and apply it to my face. (But for reals, if you did repackage in a tube or something, that’d be great) And I just paired it with TO Coverage Foundation and am IN LOVE!!! PLEASE, MONKEYS - DON’T EVER TAKE THESE TWO PRODUCTS AWAY FROM ME!!! ;)”

This fluid primer is a must-have in my beauty arsenal. As in I am NEVER without it! It goes on smoothly on my face like a dream before I apply my make-up. Regardless of the product I use (concealer, powder, blush etc.) over it, application is a breeze without leaving me with annoying cakey effects. I also don't mind that it comes with a dropper. Using it is super easy. A small drop goes a long way and a bottle can last up to a year.3 months ago
The skin absorbs it like water it is so lightweight, so it's excellent for oily or combination skin. It's long-lasting and fills in every little lines or crevices on the face, I would absolutely recommend it. I love this primer! It goes on feeling smooth. I also know that I am using a good product with no harsh chemicals added to it. It’s easy to apply with its dropper application.5 months ago
Wow!! The Ordinary. never disappoints!! I sweat so much at work and can never get my makeup to stay on, ( tried so many products and techniques and combos of primer, foundation, setting powder, setting spray ). I've only had this for a few days now but I am impressed already! The packaging is glass with an eyedropper which I think is great! It spreads beautifully, feels amazing, and my makeup has actually lasted so much longer! So glad I bought this!!5 months ago
Oh well this one is divine! Its so smooth and helps to minimize pores really. This one is my holy grail as a make up artist. This primer works better than the most hyped on social media. I swear this is good to all skin types and works well with the products i use. For its price, surprisingly it holds the make up really well. This is highly recommended!11 months ago
I like the consistency of the primer. And it doesn't have any scent, which is good. But I don't use it as much because it doesn't mix well with my regular BB cream. The mixture adds up and gets flaky on my face. Terrible combo in this summer heat. Maybe it's better for non-humid weather.11 months ago
This primer really feels nice, and smoothes easily on the skin. It masks my pores (especially on the nose) and blurs the lines near my eyes and mouth. When foundation (liquid/powder) is applied, it clings very easily and does not feel nor look cakey. It does help make your face a smooth canvas for makeup, and can hold your makeup all throughout the day (I easily sweat, and I sweat a lot!) This primer comes in glass dropper bottle, but I wish it has a brush applicator instead. Though I must sat, one drop goes a long way!about 1 year ago
