Best primer on the market!


I absolutely adore this primer! Was recommended this by a beautician friend of mine and haven’t looked back since. Super hydrating and brightening, makes foundation blend in like a dream.

Most Helpful Criticism

Ok Primer


This is an ok primer but nothing special, I don't really like it. I personally much prefer Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot as a primer, as they are both marketed similarly and have similar consistencies and finishes
  1. A little drying


    I received this as a sample and used it under my makeup for work. I do have quite dry skin, and i found this a little drying.
  2. pore refining but a bit dry


    I have very dry skin and using the yellow tone of this product, I also have the strobe cream from the same brand. This is a good primer which blurs the pores for me (which is my main concern), however it makes my skin a bit dry after couple of hours which is not pleasant for my dry skin. the strobe cream is moisturizing enough but not as good as this one to cover the pores.
  3. Super Hydrating


    I really like this primer. It gives you a glow within look and makes the skin feel refreshed and hydrated. Only downfall is the price.
  4. Worth the $$$$$


    If you have dull, dry skin, this is your new best friend!
    I also love the strobe cream, but this is my faaaaaave!!!
    Best primer I've ever used by a long shot.
  5. Lovely


    This primer was used on me when I got my makeup professionally done so I purchased it as I was in need of a new primer. The price tag is quite hefty if I'm being honest. It does the job but I feel like I could get other primers for way less.
  6. My go to Primer!


    I have been using this primer for the last couple of years, and love it! It’s a little pricey, but I believe it’s worth it. The bottle is a decent size and lasts a while. If you can splurge a little, definitely give this a go!

    I have combination skin, and find this primer gives me a natural and subtle glow under any make up look, without drying me out or making me shiny.
  7. GLOW!!!


    Absolutely love the glow this gives me on my cheek bones!!!
    Definitely worth the price and you don't need to use a lot.
  8. L.O.V.E


    I used this primer under a radiant glow foundation and my skin looked extra luminous. The texture is lightweight and feels hydrating on the skin. I got so many compliments on my skin that day. Definitely high on the consideration when I run out of my current primer (as I received a sample in my order). Love this product!
  9. Best primer on the market!


    I absolutely adore this primer! Was recommended this by a beautician friend of mine and haven’t looked back since. Super hydrating and brightening, makes foundation blend in like a dream.
  10. Premier Primer

    Ingrid, Surry Hills

    I’ve been hunting for an excellent do-all primer for absolutely ages - and finally have found it! I initially got this product as a sample and now have purchased and been using it daily. I’ve got combination skin which gets oily as the day wears on. This product combats my afternoon shine problem and keeps makeup in place throughout the day and into the night. It has a lovely silky feel when apply...

  11. Nice Primer


    This primer feels really nice on the skin and I like the light shimmery effect it has. It works well keeping my makeup on on a night out.
  12. Honestly like photoshop for the skin


    Honestly this product is like a photoshop for the skin.
    I really like this primer. It goes on smoothly without being greasy and sits flawlessly under makeup. I would definitely consider purchasing it in the future.
  13. Great primer


    I really enjoy using this primer. I have a more warm/yellow skin tone so I use the yellow version of this. It doesn't really give off much colour or anything though, but just a really nice subtle radiance. It helps my makeup to stay on longer, and feels really nice on the skin. Have not experienced breakouts with this product either, or oiliness/dryness. Overall a really good staple primer, def re...

  14. Great Primer


    Beautiful primer. Gives a natural glow and a smooth finish. However, for the price I do think there's better primers out there.
  15. So good


    I love this primer! It’s super nice to apply to my face, absorbs quickly and makes my make up stay all day/night! I use it whenever I’m going full glam and it never disappoints!
  16. Nice primer


    This is my first time buying this product, and so far so good. I've used it for two weeks, and haven't had any issues. I bought the pink base primer, and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth. Definitely covers pores well. It reminds me of Benefit's primer.
  17. Radiant


    Really like the yellow shade to give me a golden glow
  18. Amazing!


    I love it for summer when I want to look light and natural!Gives my skin a soft finish with a natural dew!
  19. Good primer


    I received this as a sample and it's pretty good. Works well with my makeup and gives my complexion a more radiant look!
  20. Very gentle on the skin


    I find this primer creates the best base for my foundation. It creates a beautiful, dewy finish.
  21. Lovely primer


    I love the radiant yellow shade for my pale but yellow undertoned skin. It creates a beautiful glow, is hydrating, but also helps with oil ( I have combination/oily skin). It feels lovely when applying. Probably not my all time favourite in terms of making my makeup stay, I wouldn't use it for a night out myself, but it's perfect for everyday.
  22. Prep


    I love this to help prep my foundation! helps keep foundation on for longer!
  23. Dewy


    Gives my skin a soft finish with a natural dew! I love it for summertime when I want to look light and natural!
  24. Great Primer


    I really like this primer. It goes on smoothly without being greasy and sits flawlessly under makeup. I would definitely consider purchasing it in the future.
  25. Wow


    Wow this is a great primer. Gives my skin and stunning dew as well as making makeup apply smoother
  26. Radiant Yellow


    A nice, smoothing, non greasy, creamy based primer with a hint of yellow. I have slightly pinkish cheeks, and this primer seems to neutralize the redness and soften my skin. I used a couple of bottles and switched a to a different brand (just to try something different), but just repurchased it again. I do not find that it extends the wear of the foundation, but my skin feels like silk with it. Wo...

  27. Works


    Fantastic primer. Does give the skin a bit of glow, and hydrates nicely. Probably wouldn't buy again, since J have others I like better but is still quite nice
  28. Fresh and light


    Fresh feeling, light on the skin, definitely notice the difference with and without using. This is one of my fave primers.
  29. not for me


    I don't really fancy this primer, it is good for colour correcting but can look too yellow/pink on some skin types.
  30. Mac can do no wrong!


    I received a deluxe sample of this as a gift and I think it’s gorgeous! Brightens my skin with some colour correcting properties and can be layered under strobe cream and liquid foundation without balling up. I love it’s sheer, not sparkly, glow it gives your skin. Also helps disguise my fine lines! Love it!
  31. Leaves my skin smooth and soft!


    I recived a sample of this and fell in love! I have dry to combination skin and it leaves me matter in my oily areas and mosturised in my dry areas. I love how my foundations sits ontop of it. But I think this more of a moisturiser than a primer as I didn't notice my foundation staying on longer than usual.

    Definantly would recommend!
  32. not a fan


    not a fan of this at all. i have combo acne prone skin and it felt super heavy on my skin. pretty sure i broke out from this too .done nothing for my foundation wear. much better and cheaper products out there. if you have sensitive skin be careful you may break out
  33. Ok Primer


    This is an ok primer but nothing special, I don't really like it. I personally much prefer Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot as a primer, as they are both marketed similarly and have similar consistencies and finishes
  34. Great primer!


    I received this as a sample and will definately buy myself. Feels great on my skin and prepped it for my makeup. It's a great base to start with. Didn't make my face shiny and lasted the day.
  35. This is a lovely product, but on the expensive side


    I like the feel of this primer on my skin, and like the glow it leaves on my skin, but it is on the expensive side, and to be honest, the Radiance Primer by Maybelline (in pink packet) from the chemist feels and looks almost exactly the same, for only about 1/5 of the price.
  36. Pretty


    This is a pretty primer but I didn’t think it was worth the price tag. It’s pretty basic in my opinion. It did make my skim glowy but I’ve tried better ones on the market
  37. Sits so well under my foundation!


    I received a really big sample of this primer in my Adore Travel Bag and I am so glad I did!! I used it straight away and it sits really well under my foundation and gives me a little glow! So good for my dull winter skin!
  38. Have tried Better


    This primer is ok but I have tried better with a nice radiant finish. I probably wouldn’t repurchase this again
  39. Excellent primer


    I love this gel primer ;it feels cool on my skin. It illuminates my skin and also mattifes my skin leaving it soft and plump. It helps hides any pores and small blemishes. The primer is also very easy to blend with a foundation brush and only need half to one pump to cover your whole face. No strong fragrance as to it as well. Love it.
  40. Love


    makes my skin feel plump, radiant and moisturised before putting my makeup on every day
  41. My favorite primer!


    Out of trying numerous primers, this is definitely my favorite! My skin is oily, though I love a luminous finish. I find this primer somehow maintains luminosity yet controls my oil. My foundation applies much more smoothly and lasts longer, whilst looking fresh. I find primers tend to be very subjective, and if you have an oilier skin type, though love a glowy finish, this is worth a try!
  42. Nothing special about this


    I recieved a sample of this with an adore order. I used it a few times, I wasn’t wowed by it. It’s pretty basic in my opinion. It didn’t give me a smooth finish & it hardly made me look radiant. I was quite disappointed. Wouldn’t purchase
  43. Hydrating and smoothing


    This primer sits really nicely under makeup and extends wear. I find it smooths out our makeup and controls shine over the day. Absorbs quickly into the skin and doesn't feel sticky. The pump dispenses quite a lot with each pump so I don't find it lasts me that long.
  44. Lots to like


    I have been using this primer for a while due to it gelling well with my foundation (Estee Lauder Double Wear) and being at a reasonable price point. I experience some redness on my fair skin around my chin and nose so I steer clear of the pink and like the yellow undertone. I don't need to much oil control and find this works well , but I still use a setting spray. There is a degree of 'shimmer/s...

  46. Great mid range everyday primer


    I use Mac Studio Fluid Fix and this works perfectly under it. It also works beautifully under any other foundation I have. The slight yellow helps with my medium skin to give it more radiance. My holy grail is so expensive that I tried this and it’s fast become a favourite. I use it daily for beautiful skin and it sticks to the foundation and holds in place all day. Love it!
  47. Great


    This really helps my makeup last longer and stay put. Great working with my oily skin!
  48. Make my skin feel smooth


    I love this product, it makes my skin feel smooth for application of makeup and also evens out and gives my complexion a healthy glow when not wearing any makeup! Just a really nice moisturising base for under makeup and on its own!
  49. Gives a nice natural glow


    I find this primer provides a really nice natural glow that shines through a light foundation. It's fun to use. It's a little overpriced, but worth it.
  50. Definitely not bad


    I like this but it hasn’t changed my life. I’m generally skeptical of primers and although this feels nice, I’m not sure it actually achieves much. I got the golden one for my tanned semi-Asian skin and it *might* have enhanced “radiance” a little. I won’t buy it again, unless it was much much cheaper.
  51. Good primer


    This product goes on nicely and leaves a nice finish on the skin, however, I don't think its worth the price as it doesn't feel amazing. Didn't notice too much oil control either, but overall a nice product that feels good on the skin.
  52. Perfect for combo skin


    Best primer I have used for my combination skin, hydrates me but also controls oil at the same time. Nice gel like texture too
  53. Amazing


    Very beautiful natural glow primer
  54. Great primer


    This primer is so good - it definitely makes a noticeable difference to the longevity of my makeup and makes my skin look healthier and less oily. Worth the price!
  55. Stays put


    This really helps my makeup last longer and stay put.
  56. Good product


    I use this under all of my foundations. It is a great primer and doesnt leave your skin feeling slimy or looking shiny. It does give a little bit of a mineralised glow but when foundation goes on it turns out fine
  57. Great product

    Ms Z

    I used this under my Mac foundation and really liked it my makeup stayed all day.
  58. Soft and nice on face


    Lovely product and a large bottle with handy pump. Maybe not the best primer in the world in regards to skincare but definitely works well in regards to makeup application.
  59. Love


    Really reliable and gorgeous primer.
  60. Save for special occasions


    I like to use this on my combo skin clients, it adds luminosity but also controls shine. I usually use this when I want makeup to last long.
  61. Glow from Within


    This is my absolute favourite go-to primer for days when my skin needs a refresher because I haven't been taking care of it in the previous few days, or have been sick, etc - it is a rescue product for me that creates a really good base to apply makeup more smoothly. The price is definitely expensive compared to what is available in the market, but for me, is something I can justify! My skin is mo...

  62. Ideal for olive skin tones


    I love this primer for my skin tone especially because of the yellow tones which match and enhance my already olive tan ski intones. It helps my makeup lasts longer and also adds a beautiful glow to the skin. Highly recommend
  63. Overall nice primer


    This was a really nice primer and felt nice on the skin and added the perfect amount of illumination. My face did get oily throughout the tzone as I have oily/combination skin and I feel like the prep+prime skin base works much better for my skin type. I think this would be great if you have a more normal skin type
  64. Perfect for deeper skin tones

    Shanthi (Adore Beauty Staff)

    I use this gel formula as my base when I'm going out in the evening. It provides a beautiful, hydrated, illuminating foundation before I apply any coverage. I prefer using this product because it doesn't leave any sparkly bits on your skin, (not everyone loves glitter), it just looks like a natural radiant glow.
  65. Hydrating and illuminating base you need!

    Meike (Adore Beauty Staff)

    My skin needs more hydration/glow and has a few lines. This primer creates a perfect base for foundation. It really improves the finish and prevents ceasing and lines especially if you use with the studio fix foundation. I only wish it had a scent so it smelled nicer then it would get 5 stars.
