Clinique Superprimer Universal Face Primer Review

There has been a ton of buzz in the beauty world lately about the new Clinique Superprimers. Most of them have color-correcting abilities, but I chose the Universal Face Primer which is a milky white that goes on clear. If you can't decide what color you want, go for this one!
 
 
I am in love with this primer and have used it every day for the past month! Being in grad school and working a job means that I usually put in 12+ hour days. I needed something that was going to make my makeup last but not irritate my skin. Most primers with silicones do that, and even though this does have some, it is much gentler and I do not get that itchy mask feeling.
 
 
For $27, the tube isn't huge, but less than a dime size covers your whole face and primes you for makeup as well as adds a touch of moisture. Pores disappear and my makeup goes on smooth and stays during my crazy days. I have a 15 hour day recently and beyond blotting with some rice paper at lunch time, my makeup was flawless. People have been commenting about how good it looks too!
 
 
The universal color is completely sheer and works a treat. If you have sensitive skin, Clinique is a brand you can trust and I am glad they are coming out with really functional products! Did you know that every time Clinique tests a new product, they test up to 600 women of all skin types and if even ONE has a sensitive reaction, they completely reformulate?!
 
What is your go-to primer?

  1. That looks like a nice primer! The price isn't bad either, when I was looking at some at sephora they were super expensive!

    1. Oh yeah, some primers are crazy expensive, but worth the money if they don't harm your skin.

  2. I'm in the market for a good primer, my stupid pores on my cheeks get out of hand after an hour or so. I will keep this one in mind :)

  3. Sounds like a pretty good one! But uggh at silicones! I can't use something with them for long otherwise I breakout. :(

  4. I haven't tried anything from Clinique in way too long, I may see if I can sample this at the counter. Thanks for the review!

  6. I really love Clinique's brand ethos, but their products just never quite did it for me! It's one of those I WANT to love them but I just can't kind of things hahaha. Glad to hear this works so well for you though, that's quite impressive staying power. And the compliment test is the ultimate sign of results so yay loll
