No matter the scenario, we still want to look good for our next impromptu photo op.

With the help of antioxidant-rich ingredients like vitamins A and E, green tea, and grapeseed extract, it also smooths and protects skin so you can even wear it alone without makeup. Best of all, the lightweight, oil-free formula absorbs quickly, so you can move on to the rest of your routine without skipping a beat.

Love this primer!

This primer is amazing. Lightweight and keeps my makeup on all day. Works great. I usually purchase this on a regular basis (the full size) So I was happy to get the sample size to take when I travel. Also, the sample size was great!

love, love, love this

I had never used primer before this. My face felt silky smooth, my foundation looked even and smooth. My makeup lasted all day. I will for sure purchase the full size of this product

Awesome surprise

Lightweight primer that glides on. Can't believe I never used a primer before but just a small amount makes my foundation easier to apply, it looks better and lasts a full day.

Can't live without

I thought all I ever needed was a good moisturizer, but I tried a sample of this and the difference is night and day. I love it! I ran out and my makeup didn't even look the same, my skin didn't feel soft anymore. Love this primer!

Love this product...probably the best I've tried. Will definitely purchase again. Makeup stays on longer and looks great too! It is light and doesn't feel heavy on your skin

This helps my foundation stay throughout the day. I love the matte texture it leaves on my skin. Just a small amount covers my whole face

So much better than the light version
Sampled

I love this primer. Truly is the best out there. I was a makeup artist in past life and have tried a lot of them. Because I'm oily I bought the smashbox primer light thinking it would compliment my skin better. WRONG. It was too mattifying to use right before applying foundation. Stick with the regular version unless you have no pores.

Best Primer out there
Sampled

I have tried about ten to twelve primers on the market and always come back to this one. It is a few that goes on smooth and sets up quickly. It keeps make up in place as long as 16 hours. That is pretty amazing!! No other primer can really compare. They get maybe 6 to 10 hours use and your make up wears. I highly highly recommend this Smash box product. I use many of their cosmetics and you can't go wrong with any of them. Get the try it kit here on birchbox. It's a reasonable price. You won't be disappointed.

I waited quite a while before I used this. But I've been using it recently and I love it! It hides my pores and makes my make up smooth and last. I'm actually considering spending the money to get a bigger one :)
