I purchased the pump although I was shipped a four ounce tube. Since I was in need of the product and didn't have time to review/return/etc. (it's been a busyyy month), I decided to keep it. The formula itself is light and gel-like, and even though it appears sparkly, it is not. Personally I didn't notice any difference in my skin tone - I have fair skin and there is nothing tinted about this formula. Also, there isn't any UV protection, but it certainly works best as my under eye concealer's primer. I wouldn't buy this again but I would like to try other Laura Geller products.
I have tried at least 20 different primers and this one is by far the best one. It does exactly what it says, keeps foundation in place, and evens out my skin tone. The first time I used it I didn't even put on foundation after.
Learned all about primer
This was my first primer and it taught me a bunch! But it's definitely one of my favorites!! Having a champagne tone to your skin is just absolutely beautiful when you're olive toned!!
I use this champagne primer in the winter when I want a little more shimmer to my dull skin. However, when I've used this line of primer (no shimmer) in the summer, I tend to get more oily. I have combination skin, so I try to use oil free in the summer but more moisture in the colder months. The primer itself is great and my makeup definitely lasted throughout the day versus not wearing primer at all.
I HATE SHIMMER ALL OVER MY FACE. I WOULD NOT TRY THIS EVER AGAIN. but i do really like the other laura gelllar primer.
