jane iredale Smooth Affair® Facial Primer & Brightener

The secret to the “no makeup” look often involves, well, a lot of makeup. But thanks to this one-and-done multitasking primer, our days of layering product over product are over. Packed with ultranourishing ingredients (think: grapefruit, apple, and antioxidant white tea) as well as soothing royal jelly, this lightweight primer doesn’t just love your skin—it adores it. Beyond smoothing your complexion and minimizing the look of pores and wrinkles, it also provides intense hydration and anti-aging benefits, leaving skin naturally luminous. If you’re going for a more dramatic evening look, it creates a smooth canvas to help makeup apply more evenly and last longer.

Not effective

I received a sample of this product with purchase. Did not really work well for me. It did not feel like it absorbed well into my skin and left me feeling greasy all day. Could not really tell that it did anything to improve the staying power of my makeup. I have had better results with other brands. Just not right for my skin type.

Fake makeup

I feel like this really made my makeup look way too layer. It might work a lot better for someone who has a better complexion.

Great primer
Sampled

This wasn't my favorite primer, but it's definitely in my top 10. It goes on smoothly and helps keep your make up in place. The only negative thing I have to say about this product was by the end of the day my face did feel a little greasy

A staple in my makeup regime
Sampled

I'd never used a primer before I received this sample. Life changing! Oh my lanta, what rock have I been hiding under? It provides the perfect canvas for makeup application! I've even worn it alone and my skin had a radiant glow and felt supple and soft. It's a wonderful primer and skin brightener. If you're in the market for one or have been eyeing this product, I highly recommend you try it!

Amazing!

This has a very sweet scent to begin with! It dries super smooth. Although it is not 'bright' or glow like it really makes for the best of a base with that's glow of oiled skin.

It was okay

I was excited to try this but overall wasn't impressed by it. Just went on my skin and was forgetful.
