I have to admit that in the last five years, I have become a self-proclaimed makeup and skin care junkie and when I saw that on QVC Laura Geller had a new under makeup primer, I was on it! I use her original primer called Spackle and it is the only primer that does not break me out so of COURSE I had to see what the tinted primer was what it claimed it would be!

For the men reading this review, I do not want to mislead you when I say Spackle because this is definitely NOT for walls but it has the same concept as when you do prime a wall. An under makeup primer creates a barrier and sits on top of your wrinkles (of course, nobody on this site has wrinkles-wink, wink!) and it makes a smooth surface for your foundation. A primer also protects the integrity of your color as it is your true color of foundation/makeup that will be sit on top of the primer. Some will also find that when wearing a primer, you might not have to wear as much makeup which has been the case for me.

The color of this primer is a light brown leaning toward a beige color. I thought at first that the color would be too light for me but once I put it on, it blended beautifully and could act as a tinted moisturizer for me. I like having the option of only wearing the primer or putting on a full face of foundation but I think in the summer months, I will just wear the primer.

A little bit truly goes a long way as you only need about a pea sized amount for your face and neck areas. My husband says that I have a candlelit glow when I wear this so this product so this definitely gets two thumbs up from me!
