Price: $34


Where to Buy: Sephora in store and online


Pros: Feels good on the skin and not too sticky

Cons: smell, texture and not good for all skin types.

Packaging: Original size comes in a pump container. What is shown is from a HD Kit that is sold at sephora.


Review: I heard a lot about this primer. The primer feels really good on the skin and seems like it would hydrate the skin well. It felt really nice on the skin. My foundation went on nicely and did not slip or slide anywhere. Just with normal use of an 8 hour work day it help nicely. There is nothing really special to me that would make this primer stand out over the rest. I did not care for the smell, which was a clean smell. It was a little too fragrant for me. I do not feel that this would be good for the skin unless you are wearing a thicker foundation or have a heavy moisturizer on you before you put this primer on your skin.

Overall: I do like this primer but it is not for me.  I am going to reach for time after time. I feel that it does the job but the consistency is a too runny for my taste. I feel if you use their HD Foundation or a thicker foundation you will like it because it is light weight on the skin. You can check it out but only if you are interested and have the itch to purchase something.
