How long will my makeup last using this?
Our Filtered Effects Blurring Primer is proven to keep your makeup flawless for up to 16 hours! The Color Grip Technology™ in this primer formula helps lock in your makeup, control oil throughout the day for a flawless long-wearing look.
Is this non-comedogenic? Will this work with acne-prone/dry/oily skin?
We formulated Filtered Effects Blurring Primer for all skin types: dry, normal and oily. It’s made with hydrating and nourishing ingredients, but is weightless and helps control oil throughout the day. It also has skin-loving ingredients that do not clog pores and are perfect for oily and acne-prone skin. MCT oil, a derivative of coconut oil (one of our favorite ingredients in this formula!) provides nourishing hydration with skin-smoothing fatty acids known to have non-comedogenic properties as well. Key ingredients like antioxidant-rich celery seed extract, meadowfoam seed oil and vitamin E protect from free radicals that exacerbate acne breakouts and help to repair the skin.
Will my skin look matte or dewy when using this?
Our Filtered Effects Blurring Primer creates a beautiful satin matte finish on skin that never looks flat or dry. Immediately after application, you’ll notice that it blurs the look of pores, texture and fine lines while helping to control oil.
Can I use this without foundation/CC Cream?
Absolutely! On no-makeup days, we recommend smoothing a pea-sized amount over your face and neck to blur the look of pores, texture and imperfections and reduce shine. Our formula is packed with good-for-you ingredients, like celery seed extract and linseed oil to smooth and improve the look of skin over time so your skin will love you for wearing it with or without makeup.
What is the difference between Brilliant Face Brightener Illuminating Primer + Filtered Effects Blurring Primer? Do I need both primers?
Our Brilliant Face Brightener Illuminating Primer rapidly brightens skin with light-reflecting smart pigments, reducing dullness, and the look of dark spots and discoloration over time. Our Filtered Effects Blurring Primer creates a velvety smooth finish that transforms the overall appearance of skin texture and smoothes the look of fine lines and wrinkles immediately upon application and over time.
We recommend using our Filtered Effects Blurring Primer if you desire a skin-perfecting, smoothing, velvet matte finish. If you desire a radiant, lit-from-within, glowy finish, we recommend our Brilliant Face Brightener Illuminating Primer. Both will prolong the life of your makeup look for up to 16 hours and can be used at the same time! If you’re using both products together, we recommend applying our Filtered Effects Primer to your T-zone or anywhere you have texture to smooth and mattify. You can apply Brilliant Face Brightener Primer to the high points of your face, like your cheekbones + bridge of your nose for a natural-looking dewy glow wherever you want to add radiance.
I am sensitive to silicones, can I use this product?
Our Filtered Effects Blurring Primer contains dimethicone, a hydrating silicone-based ingredient that is known to protect skin and seal in moisture - it’s recognized by the FDA as a safe skin protectant at the levels used in our formula. We recommend consulting with a doctor if you have any known allergies, and doing a patch test on your arm or neck before applying to your face.
Does this have a scent?
Our Filtered Effects Blurring Primer is synthetic fragrance-free. It has a very light natural scent from our purposeful plant extracts and oils! At Thrive Causemetics, we always formulate our products without synthetic fragrance, which is ideal for sensitive skin.
