Been using this for a few weeks now and have to say it's the best primer I have found thus far...way way better than Smashbox Photo Finish which I was not impressed with. Goes on silky smooth and leaves my face looking rather flawless! Love it!

From the Derm Store website:

Global Goddess Beauty Upgrade Complexion Face Primer: An antioxidant-rich primer for creating a smooth, even complexion.

Description: Upgrade Complexion Face Primer is an illuminating formula, designed to smooth the complexion for a more flawless makeup application. Light-reflective, pearlescent pigments soften fine lines and imperfections, resulting in a healthier and more youthful appearance. Antioxidant vitamins A and E neutralize free radicals while conditioning and nourishing. Licorice extract encourages microcirculation and brightens the skin's tone for a radiant finish. The complexion is left ultra smooth, silky and ready for perfect makeup application.

Recommended Use: Smooth this primer alone or before makeup to create a radiant, even canvas.


Ingredients: Cyclomethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Silica, Tocopheryl Acetate, Retinyl Palmitate, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Butylene Glycol, Gylcyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice Extract), Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), BHT.

Treats These Conditions: Free Radical Protection

Suitable For These Skin Types: All

Makeup: Primer

Ingredient: Retinol (Vitamin A), Dimethicone, Vitamin E

Application Area: Face

Average Customer Rating: 5 out of 5





Price is $36 for 1.7oz....a bit pricey but it works fabulous for me and I will continue to buy it until the next best thing comes along! Really gives me a flawless, beautiful finish....looks great without even using any foundation and for myself, less is more. Definitely a keeper for me.......

Thanks for the great review! I saw that too, but can't use TiDo so had to pass. I use ZnO for sunscreen with better results. TiDo dries my skin too much it seems.

We can always use a great primer! ha ha....let me know what you think of it Pony when you do try it....hopefully you like it as much as I do....

Fawnie..thats too bad that TiDo dries you out...its really a nice primer and it really doesn't take me much to cover my face. I also like the fact I don't need a foundation afterwards....although I wish I could find a nice light foundation that provides good coverage but doesn't bring out all the bad points in my skin and make me look older! ha ha...

I have not tried any other Global Goddess products, but will probably give others in their line a try seeing I like the primer so much.

I had gotten a sample of the primer with a Derm Store order and that is how I came about it. I see on HSN the primer is cheaper, but with shipping it comes out to about even with Derm Store.

I tried the Global Goddess Geisha Foundation + Concealer and found it just awful.
The shade 20 (medium) is a horrid orangey oompah-loompah color. The concealer is a waxy nub on the end of the tiny 0.06 oz tube. For $38USD it's a waste of money.
The consistency is liquid/gel and it dries down quickly to a matte very dry finish. Even over a primer and/or sunscreen the finish is not flattering at all. Back it goes.
