A rich cream and makeup usually do not mix. Most that I’ve tried leave my face shiny and my foundation looking slick, or worse, pilling. This issue is easy enough to get around by relegating heavy-duty moisturizing to a nighttime-only event, but during the Polar Vortex days of winter, I need all the help I can get before facing the stinging cold wind tunnels of New York City.

Luckily, Glossier Priming Moisturizer Rich ($35) is here and it contains all the skin-saving, moisture-locking ingredients (Ceramides! Fatty acids! Murumuru and shea butters!), but still leaves a matte, primed canvas for makeup to slide on right over. The scent is intoxicating (in an herbaceous, lavender-infused way) and while the texture is thick in the jar, it melts into skin easily and leaves a velvety-smooth finish. Most important of all, it leaves your skin quenched all day long so there’s never any dryness, flakiness or irritation. Now that’s something to look forward to this winter.
