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.

Nice primer
Sampled

I usually use a cc cream under my powder foundation. Tried this primer sample and it was nice. I looked smooth and clear. I prefer a tinted primer under powder, but for those who want clear, this is a good option.

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.

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!

Smooth & Smells great!
Sampled

I use this sample before a date when I want my foundation and concealer to glide on so smoothly that my skin looks naturally flawless. This primer & brightener is light, airy and feels like a moisturizer while smelling like perfume! I'm going to buy the full-size product ASAP

In love

Tried a sample of this and it is the best of numerous primers I have tried. It tingled as it dried and post-makeup, my skin feels nice and tight. This is worth every penny!

I received a little lipstick in my birchbox a few months ago and I wanted more of Jane Iredale! I love everything that I have tried thus far of this line. Very natural looking!!
