  • "it has a subtle glow and color corrects a bit. it feels extremely light on the skin and isn't oily at all. it doesn't minimize the look of pores though so if that's what you're looking for, this product isn't it. it keeps my makeup looking great throughout the day and also feels a bit moisturizing, which is a pleasant addition." in 42 reviews

This is a versatile product where you really get a bang for your buck! It feels soft and silky and leaves your skin luminous but NOT greasy. You can actually wear it alone or with makeup. Now I can’t really say that it’s color correcting but I do feel like I have more even and bright skin.

I am supporter of primer and this one has been my go to for a while now because it truly color corrects and get my skin looking glowing very subtle of course before I apply my makeup. This also oil free which is a must have for my acne prone skin. I have purchase this several times but now I am getting interested in other primers and setting powders coming out by Hourglass!

To start, I appreciate how it makes my makeup stay put all day. However, I only give it 4 stars because it did not minimize my pores like it claimed to. The staying power is incredible and will leave you with a smooth canvas for foundation. Hourglass Ambient Light Correcting Primer

At first I really loved this foundation, I used it under powder foundation and that might've been the issue but it did not blend in to my skin. It has a slight shimmer to it but still natural at the same time. I would have to try this with a liquid foundation to see if I would recommend this to someone.

I love using this primer on my clients, specially those with dull skin. it easy to apply and it blends seamlessly with foundation. The base is shimmery so it might not work well with those with oily skin, I like to use on those with dry skin. I will continue to buy, and have it on my kit.

I love this primer because not only does it set your keep your makeup on all day, but it also color corrects my skin before putting any foundation on! I have some uneven skin tones through my face, and this does a great job at removing them! I love it.

Correcting primer! It blurs my imperfections and gives me a flawless finish to my make up. My Foundation and face make up stays in place all day, and I don't have to worry about my make up falling off while using this primer. Love it

I got this as a sample from Sephora and I love it !!! Looks great under every foundation I have tried it with. Haven’t noticed it making my foundation last any longer but definely improves how it initially looks.

Hourglass makes amazing primer, there’s no doubt about it. This felt like a velvety veil blanketing my skin. The price point is a little higher than other primers so it’s not one i keep in my bag regularly.

So I know they have different shades of these that are supposed to be correcting. But what do the different shades do? I'm trying to figure out what shade would be good for me

Recommendations on primers for combination skin? I received a sample of this but haven't read the best reviews. So any recommendations would be great! High end or drug store! (Ps I don't typically wear full face foundation so I don't need something that will make my foundation last.) TIA

Dies this primer really help your foundation to stay put all day? And does this help with dry skin?

I've been watching Hourglass for awhile, and have decided to treat myself. I'm interested in Mood Light but I'm afraid it might turn me orange with how pink it looks. Which shade of this primer would work best for NC20/25 skin with either cool yellow or olive undertones?
