A foundation primer with natural botanicals. Nars Makeup Primer is a gel-cream ideally applied as a base layer for smoother, longer-lasting makeup for all skin types. Natural botanicals are added to help reduce redness, also making it an excellent after shave for men to soothe irritated skin.
This primer has been discontinued and they have reformulated it !! :( This is the best primer I have ever used! Its a gel that absorbs into the skin but will make the makeup glide on for even coverage.
I have had problems with my foundation not staying as long as I wanted it to, so one day I went to Sephora and decided to pick this up. And I just have to say, this is just about the best primer I've ever used! The consistency feels very light and watery, and it goes on your skin so nicely! It makes my foundation stay all day and makes my skin look so smooth. Also, my skin doesn't get oily from using this at all. I am in love!
I LOVE this primer. It is the only product that I have tried that does not make my foundation feel like it is sliding off of my face. I hardly wear foundation, hardly, but on the days I do I always Prep then Prime and I only use NARS. This product is not slimy feeling, it doesn't smell and a little goes a long way.
There is an SPF version of this too, which I have sampled and I really like, but I use straight SPF face by Clinique, so I'll stick with the original.
If you have tried other primers and don't get what they hype is all about - try this. You'll see.
I wouldn't say this is my HG primer - I think for a HG it would need sunscreen - but for everyday, I think this is a pretty spot-on formula. I wear it underneath Estee Lauder Double Wear, and at work it helps my foundation last the day, without looking to greaseball or overly dry by the end of the day.
