Makeup application is more difficult...

This primer goes on nicely and feels very light on the skin, but it makes the application of liquid foundation a frustrating and difficult task. It almost feels as though you are applying foundation on a glue-like surface, rather than a smooth surface that other primers produce. Using this primer wastes more time on makeup application, and also wastes more foundation in the process. And although it produces a matte finish, it is no more mattifying than other primers on the market. It is so "sticky" that when I blot my face with tissue to soak up oil, minute remnants of tissue get stuck to my face. Perhaps this primer is better-suited for those who wear loose mineral and powder foundations.

Holy Grail

The Calm Primer has a light natural tint to it. I have tried many tinted SPF's but all are too dark for me or leave me looking orange. This one is perfect for pale/fair/medium skin, adding a little color. It will work on darker skin tones but won't give any extra color. It helps even out my skin tone and from all the hyperpigmentation I have from post acne. This one I think will be great for sensitive skin.I have used this one after my chemical peels and it is calming, hydrating, and neutralizes redness. Because it evens out my skin tone perfectly, I am more comfortable going out to work and errands without any makeup on top, even when my skin is peeling.The primer has an SPF 20 and I always use a separate SPF before. The consistency is a thick whipped texture. I have found that trying to blend it in on dry skin does not work, it just pills and pulls at your skin. I either put it on about a minute after my SPF, while my skin is still slightly moist or I'll spray my face and then put it on. One pump is enough for the whole face, again, on moist skin, it blends easily and smoothly.The primer creates a smooth and long-lasting base under makeup. I let it set for at least 2 minutes before putting on any foundation. My skin looks hydrated and smooth and every foundation from liquid matte, semi-matte, and powdered goes on beautifully on top. It has not caused any congestion or breakouts and the ingredients are A+ as well. « less

Best matte primer

Light primer lightly tinted goes well under make up for long lasting matte looking finish. Definitely works if you have oily skin or even dry skin.

A Must Have

The Brightening Primer has a yellow tone, which brightens and illuminates dull looking skin. I especially like using this one on days my skin looks more red and dull. It instantly tones down the redness and brightens my skin.The primer has an SPF 20 and I always use a separate SPF before. The consistency is a thick whipped texture. I have found that trying to blend it in on dry skin does not work, it just pills and pulls at your skin.

I let it set for at least 2 minutes before putting on any foundation. My skin looks hydrated and smooth and every foundation from liquid matte, semi-matte, and powdered goes on beautifully on top. I have combo oily, acne prone skin and these primers, with every foundation, has kept my oils at bay and lasted the whole day, some days more than 8+ hours of wear. It has not caused any congestion or breakouts and the ingredients are A+ as well. « less

Great for Rosacea!

I don't usually write reviews but had to on this product. This primer is very soothing and calming for my sensitive rosacea, calms down my redness and does not irritate my skin at all, unlike other sunscreens. It has been very hard for me to find a replacement sunscreen since my Dermalogica primer sunscreen got discontinued, but this might finally be my alternative. It's so light that it feels like I'm wearing nothing at all, compared to other sunscreens I have used that make you look shiny or feel heavy. I layer my Dermalogica moisturizer barrier repair and then this on top, and I'm good to go and it last all day- and I live in Florida! Thank you colorscience for an amazing product, please don't ever discontinue!
