This primer is a nice light moisturizer which works well for me, whose skin runs from oily to combination. It sinks in nicely and doesn't leave a slimy layer on top of my skin like some primers can. I also use it to dampen my beauty blender type sponges (takes anywhere from 1 to 3 sprays, depending on the size of the sponge) before blending in my concealer or foundations to help make everything blend more efficiently and prevent too much product from being removed during the blending process and sinking into my sponge (which is just a waste of product). I have used this spray primer in conjunction with the Hard Candy line of makeup setting spray, and also with other high-end makeup setting sprays...it works just as well regardless. I tend to mix both high-end and drugstore/mass retailer market level makeup products when creating my makeup looks, and I honestly have not seen any adverse or negative reactions or side effects when using this makeup primer. Therefore, I will give this excellent product a 5 star rating, and let folks know that if you are wanting to try one of the liquid primers (primer spray, primer water) that are on the marker at so many different price points and from different lines but are overwhelmed at which one to start with, I would recommend that you try this one. You get a generous amount of product (a full 2.2 fluid ounces) for the money ($8) versus some of the higher end versions available (sorry, Smashbox. I love your products but am not going to spend $38 for your primer water). I have even given a bottle to my sister-in-law to try and she loves it too! Try it. For $8 you most probably will love it too.

I grabbed this stuff for a long day where I was going to be in air conditioned environment (which further dries my skin), and I would have the stress of surgery, and a humid evening at home due to the weather. I thought this was a 12-hour primer in the sense that it would make the makeup last longer. It may have, but I wasn't as concerned of that, because I barely wore any today. HOWEVER, what I did notice was the prominent difference in the increased moisture to my skin MORE than 15 hours later. I wanted to write this review because this product makes a huge difference; even more than my high-end daily moisturizers (but I will still use them as well). I just realized that it claims to have hydrating "power" for "12 hr". I wouldn't have believed it if I understood that is what was meant when I glanced at the product and purchased it. (I liked the fact that it was a hydrating primer.) However, this product does what it says it does. This is one of the best beauty products I have ever used. The hydration even plumps my skin a tiny bit. I wasn't trying to get something to look perfect, I just didn't want to look too ragged on a hard day. Rather, this thing made a difference that was far beyond my expectations. So, I wrote this review hoping that other people will try it, that Hard Candy will never stop making this product.
THE BEST PRIMER
I've never gotten on with any primer before in the sense that I hadn't found one that genuinely made my makeup last longer but this does the trick. This primer is amazing. I hated it when I first sprayed it because it was really wet and felt almost thick and super sticky so I was unsure but once I blended my foundation and concealer it just melted into my skin and I couldn't feel it my makeup looked better than ever. The first time I tried it I was out for 10 hours with a busy day ahead, I spent most of my time outside and when I got home at 10pm I was amazed that my makeup was perfect, it honestly looked like I just put it on. I hadn't used any new products but wanted to test it out more to be sure it was the primer and every time I've used it since (which is 5 days of the week) my makeup has held up perfectly and lasted longer than ever. I usually get a really oily t zone by the end of the day and find my makeup looks terrible and separates on my nose and the sides of it but not with this! The price point is just a bonus but this beats all the high end primers I've tried and I would pay $40 if that was the price.
I could not for the life of me find a setting spray at Wal-Mart without alcohol in it. While searching I stumbled across this priming spray and decided I would try for setting my makeup. The results...absolutely stunning. Dewy, glowy and radiant! I had been using a 35 dollar mist from the brand OSEA... I like the finish on this 8 dollar one even more and my makeup doesn't budge all day!!!
