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!!! ;)”
