3-in-1 Timesaver that works.

Lawless Beauty "Set The Stage Hydrating Priming Serum" is a nice multi-tasking beauty product acting as a serum, moisturizer and primer in one. I was skeptical such claims were too grand, but this product did hydrate, moisturize and prep my skin for long-wearing makeup. It's a gel that glides on and sets fairly quick. It left my skin feeling smooth, matte and protected throughout the day. Although it is silicone-free, it has that silicone slip and feel. I used it three different ways and liked them all. First, I tried it alone since I rarely wear foundation, and it left my skin feeling smooth and protected. The next day I applied face powder immediately after the primer, and again my face felt smooth and matte all day. I really like how my skin looks and feels with just the primer and powder. My powder lasted longer than usual since I applied it while the primer was still drying and setting. Lastly, I used the primer with a light coverage foundation and powder, and my makeup lasted all day, well into the night, and again my skin was smooth and matte. I've also tried the primer with moisturizer, but felt that my balanced skin had too much product on it, so I don't need a moisturizer when wearing this primer. It truly is a three-in-one timesaver and lived up to its claims. The handy pump dispenser tube is easy to use, dispensing the right amount for my needs in one pump. I experienced no pilling, and this primer worked well with everything else I paired it with. I like it a lot, and I'll finish it to the end, but I will not repurchase at the current full price. I have cheaper alternatives I like better, but this product does what it claims. I received this product complimentary from Lawless Beauty for reviewing and testing purposes; all opinions are truthfully my own.

Amazing silicone-free non pore-clogging primer!

I received the free/ complimentary sample of Set The Stage Hydrating Priming Serum from Lawless Beauty for testing and review purposes. I started using this unique hybrid 3-in-1 serum + moisturizer + primer immediately and found its silky texture feeling so soft and light on my skin while the formula continuously worked, creating an invisible silk canvas for makeup, smooth, soft and subtly radiant. This unique formula silicone-free formula, with antioxidant-rich skincare ingredients, of this primer provides lightweight hydration to my skin with its soothing benefits and a subtle and calming lavender scent. The Shea butter softens, hydrates, and deeply nourishes the skin without clogging the pores. This one step primer actually sets the stage for me before I am ready apply my makeup. I love using this primer so much that I have already recommended it to several of my friends and family who love to use makeup, and several of them already purchased and used it, and just love the way how this amazing primer gives a calm, smooth skin healing it all the way through. They are also happy to use this serum in their skincare routine before or after applying their moisturizer, morning and night.

Complimentary from Lawless, I was able to review this product. Overall, just after using it for a few days I’ve noticed that my skin feels smoother and has a slight glow. It is perfect for summer time as it is lightweight so you can wear makeup over it without feeling cakey. I used the product with my hands and it definitely makes me skin bouncy and the glow from hydration is like none other. I wish the product was a bit bigger because I feel like I will have to purchase it in about 3 months. Overall the ingredients are readable and not excessive, so you know exactly what is penetrating into your pores.

Hydrating but tends to pill sometimes

Lawless gifted me their Set the Stage Hydrating Priming serum and I have a few mixed opinions. Firstly, this is super lightweight and hydrating but has such a weird chemical scent that it isn’t my favorite. Secondly, this did pill a little bit when I put it on top of my sunscreen which is quite annoying. It didn’t seem to pill when I placed it under my sunscreen but nonetheless I’m going to have to play with it a bit to figure when the pilling is being caused.

New must have in my routine

I received the Set The Stage Hydrating Priming Serum by Lawless in trade for my honest review. This is a unique product being a hybrid of a hydrating moisturizer, primer, and serum that leaves your skin feeling silky smooth to the touch immediately after application. On applying, it felt very light yet very effective and a little really does go a long way. My skin felt hydrated but not heavy or oily. It also lacks silicone which in many primers can clog and cake up your pores and this does not build up on your face- again being very light weight. It’s a great stand alone moisturizer or a great primer for under your makeup. It creates a nice smooth base and acts like a lightweight primer. I’ve tried this with many different foundation combinations to see if it would make the foundation break up and I found no flaws and it truly does play well with any foundation as it claims to do. It is also important to note that it does not feel too tacky to the touch, but just enough where your makeup will stick to it without problems. The scent is actually quite pleasant compared to other moisturizers/primers, but it is not at all overpowering and not enough to irritate your skin which is nice. Overall, this 3 in one moisturizer/primer/serum makes 3 steps, into one step. Making makeup days easier and no makeup days smoother. Overall, I love the radiant finish it leaves on my skin and will continue to use this in my everyday routine.
