Review: This product is not new but it is new to me. I love the Juno & Co. Matte Black makeup brushes and their Cloud Sponge so when I saw they had a primer that had skincare ingredients, I was sold. First of all, the packaging is absolutely stunning and well thought of. For its price point of $28, some expensive brands should step up their game. It comes in a periwinkle blue box with white typography. It also has a sleeve (see photos of the entire box packaging below). The primer is housed in a heavy duty tub that looks like a spaceship; I mean it is the Moonshine Primer, right? The tub is a glass-like purple color with sparkles on them. It's really very pretty, in my opinion. It has a screw cap so all you have to do is twist it to open or close the lid. The primer is a white cream with a rich consistency. I did not use the word "thick" because it isn't thick and it blends really well on the skin. Once you apply it on the skin, it melts into the skin beautifully which is why it makes the makeup application seamless. This primer feels like a very expensive moisturizer. It also reminds me of my Derma E Firming Moisturizer (the rich texture and how it feels upon application). Once it sinks into the skin, it provides a natural glow (not shine); but it does not make my skin or face look oily nor does it make it feel sticky. It works well with all the foundations that I own as well as other liquid products such as concealers, cream and/or liquid blushes, bronzers and highlighters. It also works well with powder products. The primer does not feel heavy on the skin despite its rich texture. I love this primer. It has been a quick favorite and I love using it on its own as a moisturizer when I don't feel like putting makeup on. I definitely recommend this primer. It's got a great price point and it is amazing. Keep in mind that I mainly use a primer to extend the wear of my makeup and as an extended skincare routine. I do not use it for pore-filling, mattifying or what not so the results of the primer are based on those items. Have you tried this primer yet? If you haven't, I highly suggest to check out The Juno & Co. website and pick one up.
