Frequently Asked Questions

    • What's the difference between both primers?

      Our Brilliant Face™ Brightener Illuminating Primer rapidly brightens skin with light-reflecting smart pigments, reducing dullness, and the look of dark spots and discoloration over time. Our Filtered Effects™ Blurring Primer creates a velvety smooth finish that transforms the overall appearance of skin texture and smoothes the look of fine lines and wrinkles immediately upon application and over time. 

      We recommend using our Filtered Effects™ Blurring Primer if you desire a skin-perfecting, smoothing, velvet matte finish. If you desire a radiant, lit-from-within, glowy finish, we recommend our Brilliant Face™ Brightener Illuminating Primer. Both will prolong the life of your makeup look for up to 16 hours and can be used at the same time.

    • Is this primer non-comedogenic?

      Our primer is formulated with skin-loving ingredients that do not clog pores and are perfect for oily and acne-prone skin. MCT oil, a derivative of coconut oil (one of our favorite ingredients in this formula!) provides nourishing hydration with skin-smoothing fatty acids known to have non-comedogenic properties as well. Key ingredients like antioxidant-rich celery seed extract, meadowfoam seed oil, and vitamin E protect from free radicals that exacerbate acne breakouts and help to repair the skin. 

    • Is this matte or dewy?

      This primer provides long-lasting hydration while also providing a beautiful satin matte finish that never looks flat or dry. Immediately after application, you’ll notice that it blurs the look of pores, texture, and fine lines while helping to control oil. The skincare-first ingredients infuse skin with long-lasting hydration, essential nutrients, and antioxidants so your skin feels nourished and healthy throughout the day.

    • How long will my makeup last using this?

      Our Blurring Primer is proven to keep your makeup flawless for up to 16 hours. The Color Grip Technology™ in this primer formula helps lock in your makeup and control oil throughout the day for a flawless long-wearing look.

    • Can I use both of your primers together?

      If you’re using both products together, we recommend applying our Filtered Effects™ Primer to your T-zone or anywhere you have texture to smooth and mattify. You can apply Brilliant Face™ Brightener Primer to the high points of your face, like your cheekbones and the bridge of your nose for a natural-looking dewy glow wherever you want to add radiance. 

      We love both primers for different applications and finishes: Brilliant Face™ Brightener Illuminating Primer creates a dewy, lit-from-within, radiant finish and Filtered Effects™ Blurring Primer creates a skin-perfecting, pore-filling, velvet matte finish.
