Murad Skin Perfecting Primer: My (Not So) Secret Beauty Weapon

Recently, I’ve added a new product to my beauty arsenal: the Murad Skin Perfecting Primer in a matte finish. This handy little tool packs a powerful punch in its 1-ounce bottle!

The thing I love most about the primer is that I can use it on a day when I am suffering from makeup laziness. I’ll use the Murad Skin Perfecting Primer in place of foundation. It blends in so well with my skin tone that I’m left with a natural glow that minimizes the appearance of my pores and makes my skin look effortlessly (almost) flawless.

When used under my makeup, the primer is the ideal base coat. Besides evening out discoloration and prepping my face for foundation and concealer, it also helps keep makeup in place for a longer amount of time. I love using the Perfecting Primer on a particularly busy day when I won’t necessarily have time to re-touch between day and night.

The primer is light and oil-free so it doesn’t leave my face greasy or too shiny. In fact, the matte version actually creates a delicate powder-like finish that is fresh and subtle. It’s also concentrated so I don’t need to use a lot, which means my 1-ounce bottle should last me a while!

The primer is available in both the matte finish and a dewy finish.

You can purchase the Murad Skin Perfecting Primer at for $35.
