  • "this is a good primer for all types of skin. i have very oily skin and it still is good for under my makeup or on it's own on no makeup days. only down fall is it doesn't do anything for my pores so i have to go in for another primer in my t zone but still good for what it claims although it is a bit pricey." in 54 reviews
  • "very watery texture so it feels light on the skin. absorbs really quickly and makeup application is smooth. i put on a lot of moisturizer before priming so i’m not sure if this is hydrating my skin but it isn’t leaving any dry patches. i got this as a sample and may repurchase when it runs out." in 50 reviews

I am loving this new primer! I have dry skin and it is so hard to keep it hydrated all day long. So far, so good with this product! I did a wear test of this primer on one side and the Becca hydrating one on the other and the Smashbox primer made my make up look better through out the day! It is a thick consistency and melts right into the skin, leaving it plump and hydrated. I like this primer because it helped with the longevity of my make up! I purchased mine from Ulta! So happy with it!

Smashbox makes amazing primers so when I saw this one was coming out I had to try it! It did not miss this mark! I have normal to dry skin and this stuff worked great. It is super hydrating and dries into the skin quick. It gives you a nice hydrated and smooth base for your makeup. It helps keep it on all day long! I would recommend this to anybody and I will totally repurchase!!

I didn't think I'd ever find a product that would replace the hangover primer as my holy grail primer but this might just be it.
I'm super dry so moisturizing is very important, an essential step in my beauty routine and the one product I will absolutely never skip out on.

But this primer is so hydrating that I can actually skip my usual moisturizer that goes on under my makeup and this product will more than do the job.

I also love pairing this with the new tarte clay stick foundation and it looks absolutely flawless.

(I still heavily moisturize at night too though)

I am in love with this primer. I have very dry skin. I did put on moisturizer first and followed up with this. It sinks into the skin quickly so you can apply your makeup, and your makeup will glide on beautifully. My skin felt and looked hydrated all day long. My makeup looked fresh all day long. I am going to experiment and try this alone one day without moisturizer first. I do love how this felt and made my skin and makeip look.

This is the best primer I've ever tried!!!! I have combo skin. This made my make up really stick, and last all day. Plus it's so hydrating!! Feels amazing. They had me at niacinimide!!! lol it's also a big luxurious glass bottle. Primer + moisturizer is genious!!!! Plus hyaluronic acid. Great ingredients and great make up application, I love it so much.

I bought this a week a go along with my Huda Beauty Faux Filter foundation. Only because my skin is usually very oily but with it being Fall my skin tends to be a bit more dry. And this helps tons w/ a full coverage matte foundation like the one I mentioned k just got. Also the girl at Sephora told me this specific primerizer helps keep the foundation looking flawless and not let it completely sink into your pores. It keeps it very natural looking with it being full coverage. Or somewhere a long those lines. However whatever the case may be these two items together for me are a match made in heaven.
