Beautiful

I adore this product, especially for the price. It gives a lovely hit of hydration under makeup and leaves a 'good skin' glow, like you've just had an amazing facial. I often wear this on its own on no-make-up days and even had the comment from my husband that my skin looked like the surface of a pearl (in a good way!)

Glowy

I got the smaller size to test it out and i really liked the primer. It has a really glowy look on the skin and looks great with the rare beauty foundation ontop. Both products are a really great combination. I will be buying the bigger size since i really liked the finish it gave on my skin.

great dewy formula, especially for

great dewy formula, especially for me as someone who does lots of stage performances and stage makeup. i do wish it was a little less glittery and sat well with powder foundation. definitely gives a dewy glow to the skin and blurs pores though!

super glowy

I like this primer because I have dry skin that tends to look crusty and cakey if I use a sticky, mattifying primer. This primer looks very glowy and pretty underneath makeup, and leaves my skin feeling hydrated throughout the day. I was concerned that the glitter would look obvious but it's not chunky or noticeable at all, more like a fine sheen that leaves you looking dewy

Glowing

Packaging is so cute, sleek and aesthetic. I also have the mini version which is perfect for traveling. I have mostly a dry skin but my nose and forehead tends to get oily overtime. This primer is very very glowy, it has kind of sparkle particles inside and when applied in bare skin is very noticeable. I apply it with my hands but I would recommend you use a tool as it leaves your hands sparkling and it's difficult to wash it off. After foundation/skin tint is applied the glittery parts melt and and disappear leaving the skin with a radiant finish but not oily at all.
