So impressed!

So I was a little nervous with it starting off black but it blended so smoothly into my skin and it didn’t start to peel off the more I blended In and it stayed well even with my sunscreen on top! I have oily skin and it helped keep it under control and by the end of the day it gave it a perfect dewy glow!

What a great deal!

I bought the primer while they were having the buy one get one free sale. I've wanted to try it for so long now but I'm glad I waited. Can't beat that deal. I've only used it twice so far but I'm loving it already. The center of my face can get so shiny so I need a matte primer in the t-zone but I use dewy on the rest of my face. It's such an interesting primer. Starts out black but the black completely disappears once you blend it into your skin. I definitely see a difference once I let it sit for a couple minutes. Great product!

LOVE!

I have excessively oily skin and even using all the RIGHT products and all of the mattifying products, my skin usually still looks like I’ve rubbed greasy chicken on my face. I’m not normally the type of person to spend this much on a primer or most products, maybe that’s because I’m usually disappointed in them, but i read the reviews and had to give it a shot. This primer actually neutralizes my oily skin and it smells AMAZING! I was surprised to see that it’s black, but it blends in perfectly with any skin tone. I’ve now ordered another so i can carry it in my pro makeup kit for my clients.

The Perfect Primer

After using this primer, I will never be able to use another brand. It goes on the skin very smooth and does not leave your face feeling oily like some other primers I’ve tried. It keeps my foundation matte and even all day with no touchups needed. Personally, I would recommend this product to my friends because I think they deserve the best of everything.

Matte-fying long wear

I've used primers from different companies and nothing compares to this in terms of longevity, hard exercise, sweating and skin contact. This primer keeps my face matte for 10-12hours. I wear it during work, hiit, lifting and grappling. One application in the AM sees me well into the night. I also like that this is a vegan cruelty free product.

FAQS

Why is the cap on my nail lacquer dented?

The deliberate denting you see on Smith & Cult’s packaging serves a dual purpose; personality and precision. Our brand represents beauty that embraces imperfections; the pristine high-end packaging married to the differentiating indentations represents just that. The added bonus to our one and only denting design is the grip factor – use the dents for a sturdier hold. The nail lacquer cap also houses a petite cap for those that prefer even more precision.

Are your nail polishes vegan?

Yes! There are no animal derived ingredients in our polishes, and they have not been tested on animals.

Are your polishes toxic chemical free?

All Smith & Cult polishes are 8-free, meaning they are formulated without eight harmful chemicals commonly found in nail polish: No Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, Xylene, Ethyl Tosylamide, & Triphenyl Phosphate. We’re all about clean formulas with compromising on performance!
