Luxurious, almost completely scent-free, lovely primer

Super nice primer with excellent coverage and a fast dry time (effortlessly covered dark teal and blue in one coat). Shipping is fast and cans are packed securely (returns are super easy too :)). Clare's support team is amazing, and is here to help with any project which I appreciate so much!
