This Selena Gomez-Approved Primer “Totally Airbrushes” Your Skin & Minimizes Pores, According to Shoppers
Let’s be real: as much as we love our skin, sometimes, it can use a boost. That’s where essentials like anti-aging face oils and de-puffing eye creams come into play. But, these tried-and-true products take a little bit of time to have a lasting impact. When time is of the essence and you need a bit of a skin transformation ASAP, there’s a makeup bag essential that can do the trick immediately—and it has the approval of none other than Selena Gomez herself.
It’s a pore-erasing primer that reviewers say “totally airbrushes” your skin to make it look, well, poreless. The gel formula is designed to even out texture (fill in those pores without clogging them) and tone to create a canvas for makeup that’s damn-near perfect. It’s so effective, in fact, the it can also function as a foundation replacement.
“I love that I can wear this primer with or without makeup,” Gomez says of the Rare Beauty favorite “It really smooths out my skin with a blurring effect while giving it the hydration it needs.”
Now, obviously Gomez is gonna be a fan of something from her own brand, but if you check out the reviews of this pore-erasing product, you’ll see that shoppers love it just as much. It has a near-perfect 4.8-star rating and countless reviews credit the primer for everything from blurring the appearance of acne to decreasing the appearance of wrinkles.
Even an independent consumer study found that after use, 100% of participants said the look of their pores were smoothed away and minimized. Not to mention, 98% of these people said it blurred their fine lines and 97% said it evened out their skin tone and texture. It’s been a while since we were in school, but we know for certain those are A+ markings.
