Foundation: either you can’t live without it or you’ve never owned a bottle. Whether you’re the former or the latter, take notice: shoppers say they are ditching their foundation altogether for a tinted primer that blurs imperfections and evens out discoloration on its own.

Tula’s Filter Primer ($38) is more than a typical primer. While most primers are meant to be a canvas-setting base for makeup, the Filter Primer goes steps beyond. With four sheer tints that provide “solid coverage without feeling too heavy,” says NewBeauty editor Rowan Lynam, this skin enhancer delivers an undeniable glow that instantly makes skin look nearly flawless. How? Its all in the formula. Ingredients like TULA’s proprietary S6Pro Complex, a blend of six prebiotics and probiotics, smooths complexions. Licorice helps even the look of skin tone over time. Dark-spot reducing butterfly bush and nourishing chia seeds round out the groundbreaking formula.

A 57-year-old fan calls Filter Primer “perfection.” A 45-year-old shared they “completely eliminated foundation from [their] makeup routine.” The same reviewer explained, “My skin looks smooth and bright and I love that it can breathe with this product on.” A shopper in their 60s who prefers a “more natural look” said it’s “pretty amazing” how “luminous” their skin looks. “You can see the difference right away,” raves a 50-something customer, while another user in their 50s shares it “blends in perfectly.” A 64-year-old called it their “go to” for “young” skin. More fans reported it gives an “excellent instant blur” and “doesn’t settle into fine lines or dry [their] skin.”
