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.

Light layer

Nice and light, with slight grapefruit fragrance. Moisturizes nicely and adds a light glow.

Whoah. A primer that actually works!!!!
Sampled

Most primers I've used- and I've used all sorts of Mac primers, Smashbox, Benefit, you name it, just don't do the job so well. Sure they make my skin smooth but my foundation? It just sits on top, not absorbing, eventually rubbing off or settling into undesirable areas. It was getting frustrating; I just wanted a friggin' primer to work! Enter this Jane Irdale primer; immediately upon putting it on my skin I noticed it actually absorbed, instead of sat on the surface. Yet it had the effect of making my skin smooth. I was able to put on my foundation- have it set- and it had a healthy glow, despite me just waking up and not feeling well. Now its 10 hours later and my foundation is still on- maybe not as much and not covering my blemishes, but its there. Im still amazed at how it absorbed into my skin instead of sitting on top like a layer of silicone. I highly recommend this for those sick of the typical primers that do nothing but end up failing at their job .

Mix with cc cream
Sampled

I didn't realize this was a primer until I started the review. I have been mixing a few drops in my cc cream and it works great that way. Makes my skin look more natural.

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.
