I’m a big fan of primers because they help create a better canvas if you’re going to apply more face makeup. Truthfully, I don’t wear face makeup so on occasion this would be the only product on my skin. For ME, this product was great. The primer is tinted and luckily it blended right in with my skin tone. Some other people might not be so lucky because you don’t get to choose the color of the primer, so it could easily be much darker or lighter than your own skin tone. I read on the Murad website that this isn’t a problem if you wear it underneath other makeup, but you may not be able to wear it alone like I can.
Since I haven’t been wearing it under other products, I cannot attest to how well the color blends. I can tell you that for my skin the primer helps balance out some uneven skin tone areas, and also makes my skin feel quite smooth. All told, I’d probably give this product 3.5 stars out of 5. Generally speaking, I like when my primers are a little more moisturizing. The one I have is supposed to help combat acne, so it’s a little on the drier side. I’m not using this product to combat acne, but the comments on the Murad website say it’s a great product in this regard!
