Staple in my makeup routine!

Love this primer and the soft glow. I add a bit to my moisturizer for a little glow. This primer has become a staple for me now. Definitely one of Rare Beauty’s best products!

cute

I do like this primer a lot. I am not someone who enjoys a "glowy" primer but I appreciate this one. It does not make you look overly shiny but it still adds a nice sheen to the skin.

Nice!

I am really enjoying this primer and I have very dry, sensitive skin. I do notice more of a glow with when I use it and it makes my make up look more hydrated than when I don't use it. I am a fan!

Not for me, didn’t see any difference in texture or glow. Just get the dior glow foundation and you’ll be set if you have dry skin

A must-have!

I tried the product at first because I loved the brand and having a sparky primer and it totally serves. I love how it feels and it does its job really well.

LOVE! The only primer I use now. It’s super glittery/glowing and you can even just use the primer no foundation for a natural glowy effect

Dewy and fresh!

Will continue to repurchase this. It’s just that good. I wear it with a water based foundation that has no glow components. Adds a nice glowy base.
