Tarina Tarantino Pearl Glow Primer: Swatches & Review

Hello, Beautiful!

I received a deluxe sample of Tarina Tarantino's Pearl Glow Primer with one of my Sephora orders. I had always wanted to try it, but never wanted to pay full price if I didn't like it, so I was happy to receive such a generous sample.

This primer provides a pearl glow (hence the name of this product), which is an opalescent glow that I really like. The glow that this primer provides does not show through most foundations, but if you use a tinted moisturizer or a sheer foundation (and of course if you just wear the primer by itself) you will notice the pearl glow.

The glow is not the reason I like this primer so much, it's actually the quality of the primer that I'm really fond of. It makes my makeup go on smoother, but I really love how long my makeup lasts when I wear this primer. It's one of the most effective primers I own. It may not work for everyone, but it works for me and therefore I would purchase the full size of this in the future.

You can pick up Tarina Tarantino's Pearl Glow Primer at Sephora or on their website for $32.

Here's what my deluxe sample looks like:

Shade Description: Looks white, but blends out to an opalescent glow.

  2. I love this primer! I use it very often, but I rotate a lot through primers. Right now I use four main primers: L'Oreal Magic Perfecting Base, MUFE HD Primer, Laura Geller Spackle in Champagne, and Tarina Tarantino Pearl Glow Primer.
