This is my favourite primer. It helps smooth out lines and old acne scars when it is applied and leaves your face feeling fresh - not tight like some other primers. After drying, makeup then goes on smoothly (I use a brush for foundation, highlighting) and find that I use less makeup if I use the primer beforehand. Makeup also lasts longer than when applied directly to face. I compare its effectiveness to higher end more expensive primers like smashbox and even Clinique- I would prefer the Julep primer 100%.
Product goes on smoothly. Helped with my rosacea when putting on my foundation. The only thing is that is does not last as long as I hoped it would on my face. Overall, I'm satisfied for the price I paid.
I adore Julep products, so when I ordered this I was so impatient for it to show up at my door. It did not disappoint! I love this primer more than what I've been getting at the drugstore. It doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy or like my skin can't breathe. Not only that, but I've found that it is the best primer for making my pores look way smaller and gives my makeup a nice, smooth canvas for foundation, etc. The cost of this primer is a little bit more than a drugstore primer, especially because it's American and I have to pay a higher price in Canadian, but it is definitely worth it. If you are a Maven subscriber, you can get this for a cheaper price than non-registered members, and if you get a monthly subscription box, you can put this product in your monthly box with a few other things, and get the best value for your dollar.
This is the greatest invention ever, when I use this under my makeup I look 10 yrs younger!
I received this product in a monthly maven box. I was very excited about getting this product and was even more pleased after I used it. It is definitely the best primer I have used. I have tried other drugstore brand primers and have found them all to be very greasy feeling on my face and not helping to keep my makeup on long. This product does both very well and it lasts a long time for the price!
I got this product in one of the julep mystery boxes. It does keep my skin more matte for a few hours but doesn't last the day. I think you could find comparable products at the drugstore for less. I will use this product before heading out for a fancy dinner or a night out but not as an every day product.
I have large pores and my face gets pretty oily. This primer works well to combat both issues, my face does not get oily while wearing it. I use it before foundation and treat it more like a cream than primer (as in I use more than a pea size amount on my whole face) due to texture. It also smells great!
