I use this light primer that has a subtle skintone illumination to it. Apply under the eyes, just above the brow line & lastly just above the cheeck exteending from the corners of the eyes to the hair line. I swear this primer when used as described above will help fake an eye lift!! I use this to make every gal appear bright, lifted and youthful!! I would litteraly die without this product!! Its the best primer I have used professionally in 15 Years!! Use it with a small angled concealer brush & you will thank me forever. Only need a pea size for each side of the Face!! Love, Love, Love!!

First of all I want to say I love pur minerals and will continue to purchase their products! In particular, their neutral primer has been the best primer I've ever used (no breakouts, even coverage, less oil in t zone). I tried this primer after reading some reviews and will be switching back to the neural. It would have been a better product for someone with darker complexion ( I'm blush medium) and less oily skin.

Best Uses

    Comments about Color Correcting Foundation Primer - Illuminate and Glow:

    I got this primer as part of a kit (which I bought for the mascara I love), and quickly found that I didn't want a day to go by in which I didn't use it. This product is better than I expected. It seems to prevent makeup from clogging my pores. It makes my skin look naturally bright and glowing. You don't see the primer, just the result of bright, beautiful, hydrated skin! It also holds mineral powder for long hours, and keeps your face looking beautiful all day. And when I wash off my makeup at the end of the day, my skin looks healthier. This is a must-have product, that I never knew I needed. It's the best!

    Greasy and slightly sticky

    By JTOjulius

    from CO

    Comments about Color Correcting Foundation Primer - Illuminate and Glow:

    I have the neutral primer, which is smooth and silky. I assumed this is how all the primers are in consistency. Not the case! This stuff is horrible. Bummer too because I bought 2 tubes and can't even use them. Ugghhh....very oily/greasy on application. Apply VERY sparingly. Also, it never quite dries on my skin. It's just a stickly layer of nastiness that doesn't even "prime." The "illumination" that this primer promises is in the form of stickiness.

    Comments about Color Correcting Foundation Primer - Illuminate and Glow:

    I have tried several comparison products from other brands, and this is by far the best. My makeup actually stays on through an entire workday, which is why I started using primers in the first place. I also think this primer really does give an extra brightness to my skin which I love. It also goes on smoothly and a little goes a long ways.

      Though this primer does give a slight glow, it really doesn't do much in the way of either priming the face for makeup, nor color correcting. Quite a disappointment, unfortunately.

          This was my second order of the illuminate and glow primer. Have been using PurMinerals Primer for years and all do as advertised. This one takes it to the next level. I typically use as a brow and cheek highlighter and it just adds a really nice glow under my PurMineral powder foundation. I use the bluish correcting primer over the rest of my face. I tend to have a bit of oily skin (still at 50+yrs old) and the illuminate and glow "glow" becomes a bit oily looking on me if I use over the entire face. Even with my imperfect skin, I get frequent compliments now. It's truly the right am't of glow for mature skin.

              I used to buy an amazing peach primer from Pur that was soft and silky and light weight on the face- a perfect primer before slapping on all my makeup. This is the 4th primer in a row that has turned out to be a heavy, oily looking, sticky mess. It's like a poor moisturizer. I've been a very loyal pur customer for 8 years now- never go a day without my 4-in-1 -but I've gotta say I'm missing the old brushes and primers big time. So disappointed :(

                Q:

                I have very dry mature skin and I use hydra fluid foundation or air cushion, I love them both. I'm confused however about which primer to use. Would u suggest illuminate and glow or hydrate and balance. Initially I was going for the latter because of its name ie hydrate , but after reading some answers to previous questions it seems that one is for oily skin .? Can you help please ?

                  Hi PUR Beauty, so glad you are considering using one of our Correcting Primers! Either of these primers will work with your skin under your PUR foundation! The Illuminate and Glow correcting primer will add additional luminosity to the skin, whereas Hydrate & Balance will not add luminosity, it assists with combating an oily T-zone. Each contain Ceretin Complex which will address lines & wrinkles, they are both silicone free and hydration to the skin, all you have to decide is if you desire a luminous finish or a matte finish! Hope this helps!

                  Hello Pur Beauty! I happy to say that the Illuminate and glow primer is Gluten Free! if you have redness, I would still use the Green Primer to address any redness in the skin prior to using foundation. You might try mixing a small amount of the Illuminate glow primer with the green primer! Or if you use liquid foundation, add a little illuminate and glow primer to the liquid foundation!

                  Hi Pur Beauty! Illuminate & Glow primer is a non-oily primer that can be used on oily to combination skin tones without making the skin look oily! Our Pur Pro Artists love using this primer under makeup and mixed into moisturizer to provide sheer luminosity to the skin. If you are concerned about excess shine, try Hydrate & Balance (lavender) primer! Hydrate & Balance is a light weight, silicone free primer that works well with oily skin tones.

                Hi , I wanted to purchase this after reading the good reviews. I'm someone who never wore make up but I want my skin to have a healthy and natural glow that brightens with no glitters or sparklers. Specially during evening parties as I look dull sometimes. I'm not looking for coverage even thought I have mild acne scars. But I wante a product to give a natural glow and a radiant look for my skin. Will this product help?

                  Absolutely! After reading your submission, I think this product is what you are looking for! Illuminate and Glow adds a beautiful dewy natural finish to the skin! A little goes a long way, so remember it's easier to "add to" than to take away! Apply a little to your décolletage for parties and such! Because it is a "primer" on days you want to wear blush or bronzer, the illuminate and glow (primer) will keep it from looking streaky!

                  It's funny you ask this question, because we are asked this question a lot! Illuminate & Glow is a gorgeous "primer" that could be used on it's own if you are just wanting to increase the radiance to your skin. However, it does not provide the coverage you would receive from our Liquid Veil spray foundation or 4-in-1 Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 which happens to be our lightest in feel and texture foundations currently available in our complexion line up. It could certainly be agreeable for days when you are having a fantastic skin day and adding a little cream blush, mascara and gloss. As our skin changes daily, you may need a hint of color or coverage, so you definitely will want to make sure you have a complexion foundation available in your makeup bag! I will say that our Pur Pro Artists love to apply Illuminate & Glow over the 4-in-1 Mineral Makeup, Liquid Foundation and CC Cream to add that celebrity glow to the complexion! Illuminate & Glow Primer is definitely one of our most versatile products! Have a play!

                Q:

                Are correcting primer "illuminate & glow" and "dark spot corrector" the same item in new packaging?? Went to local Shoppers yesterday to purchase "dark spot corrector" and they (2 women in cosmetics) sold me the "illuminate & glow" saying it is the same product but new packaging? comparing the two there seems to be a shade difference. We did not open the tube only compared colouring shown on front of tube.

                Would you please verify this for me.

                  Hi Audrey! No, the two primers you referenced are very different formulas that target different concerns. The newest formula, Illuminate & Glow, is silicone free with a luminous finish and best for dry, dull or stressed skin. The dark spot corrector, or peach primer, is a dimethicone based formula which is better at filling in texture imperfections like large pores, fine lines, etc. and tinted to brighten any dark spots like hormonal discoloration or sun damage. I hope that helps clear things up!
