Birchbox Breakdown

At the top of our perfect-skin wishlist (and we’re guessing we’re not the only ones) is a dewy complexion, a brilliance that looks beautiful bare and brightens up any makeup layered over it. But on days we don’t wake up with a natural glow (read: almost always), we can sweep one on with this illuminating primer. The silky gel gives skin a subtle radiance. Plus, it smooths out fine lines and helps makeup stay put—even a natural glow won’t do that.

How to Use

Smooth a pea-sized amount over clean skin. Go with the glow as is, or layer foundation on top.

After reading the reviews on this product, I was excited to try and expected much more. Unfortunately, I was no impressed and will not purchase again. It doesn't give a dewy complexion but does look bare. Saw no subtle radiance when using.

Simply the best

After years of hearing about this product and trying the dupes or the DIY versions, I finally splurged and can say that it really is as good as everyone says it is. This primer gives me that youthful glow that I had in my early twenties and makes my face look flawless.

I never leave the house without it

I love this product and have been using it for years. Some moisturizer, this primer and a bit of concealer brightens up my entire face without appearing as if I have any makeup on. Everyone should own this product.

A little extra sparkle...

I really like this primer... It glides on smoothly and evenly, and looks great underneath my foundation. I use medium coverage foundation and I don't feel like it makes my face glimmer at all. Ordering again!

Shiny Primer Finish

I love all of the Smashbox primers and this one sounded nice, who doesn't want to glow? :) But when I tried it, it was way too shiny/sparkly/glowy for me. It looks okay under medium to full foundations but is too much for anything lighter... You look like a disco ball :) I think I will stick to the other primers in the Smashbox line.
