It's peach tint that dissipates quickly to a powder finish leaving a smooth and matte surface, which makes foundation application easier.


HOW: Use this product after moisturizer. Sqeeze a small amount of primer and dot it all over the face:forehead, nose, cheeks and chin, then blend with fingers or cosmetic sponge. Now, you can apply your favorite foundation on top.


Fix and Perfect Foundation Primer on my face. It slightly evens out my skin tone.


I've been using this primer for a long time and it has made a difference with my makeup. The texture is not  slippery as most foundation primers (silicone based) I've tried, yet it leaves my face a silky and smooth surface,making foundation application easier. It really does make my foundation (liquid, cream or powder) last longer and keeps excess oil on check. This primer saves my face from looking oily, so I will never skip it.


Have you tried it before?

  2. CVS currently have this on sale for 75% off...I guess they're getting rid of it because it's one of the makeup on their Annual Beauty Clearance Event

  11. i've been searching for a perfect primer that will go well with my oily skin and so far, i found none - it's either i am allergic to it or it just makes my face more oily. i have to try this :) thanks for sharing!

  12. I love this primer. It's the best out of the many high-end primers I've tried. I always go back to this primer. Sometimes I just wear this without foundation. Makes your skin look awesome.
