Hard Candy Sheer Envy Primer

Hello ladies,

I have been having a great experience with Hard Candy Sheer Envy Primer. This product improves the look of my makeup and lengthens wear time. It also works well over sunscreen and skin treatment products.

I can easily tell why Sheer Envy Primer is favored by makeup artists. It has a light, silky texture. Applied over sunscreen, it offers a smooth base for my concealer, powder and bronzer. I noticed I require less makeup when using this primer.

If you like boutique makeup items, Sheer Envy Primer is an exceptional value at $8.00 USD. It will extend the wear of your favorite foundation and concealer and allow you to use less for better coverage. The application of my makeup appears more even and natural than without it.

Since I have fair skin, I regularly use a touch of bronzer to enhance my complexion. Sheer Envy Primer helps with adhesion. I can quickly highlight my cheeks, chin and forehead without worrying about needing to reapply. I also don't have to be concerned with brushing on too much color, trying to get an even application. It helps my bronzer add the most natural glow possible.

I use a moisturizing serum and sunscreen every day. Sheer Envy Primer makes my skin a little more matte without causing dryness. Makeup seems to rest atop the primer instead of sinking into the skin and getting lost in absorption. It's a great solution for layering over sunscreen or other moisturizers. You can still protect and hydrate your skin and keep your makeup in place all day long.

Since I noticed a bit of separation the first time I used Sheer Envy Primer, I give the tube a quick shake before dispensing. The primer appears white, like a lightweight lotion, but it smoothes beautifully over the skin.

Ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Synthetic Fluorophlogopite, Silica Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Dimethiconal, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Mica, Titanium Dioxide.

If you are searching for an affordable, studio quality face primer, I can highly recommend this product.

Happy painting, ladies!


  1. This is a great review! I really enjoy this primer as well! :D

  2. I love that this can be layered over sunscreen, as usually I think it's just too much product on my face. I wish they sold Hard Candy here!

  3. Stephanie: Thanks so much! I am going to be trying out the tinted moisturizer with SPF 15 soon. I'm excited about it.

  4. Silhouette Screams: This is one of the reasons I previously tended to reserve primer for the eye area alone. My routine is serum + sunscreen + primer + makeup. It surprisingly works well. I really want Hard Candy on the global market for all to enjoy.

  5. This is great news. Although I have quite a few bottles of primer it's still nice to know of another product. I was going to buy Urban Decay Primer Potion but it was $30. I had a sample of it and it really made my pores disappear. I just hate to put out the money when I have so much product.

  6. I was wondering about this stuff. Thank you for the review. :)

  7. Lucy: I know what you mean. It's good to have an affordable option. I love Hard Candy primers overall. I am waiting for their mini eye makeup primer to someday be released full size. I may have to start a petition!

    Ice Queen: No problem! I love their primers, both face and eye.
