Product description

Ready for your most perfected-looking skin? You can instantly blur flaws and smooth out your skin with Optical Illusion Complexion Primer. This pore minimizing primer reduces fine lines and makes pores almost vanish — for a gorgeous, porcelain-like texture. Makeup not only goes on better, but also lasts longer.
This velvety soft, mattifying primer has a slight pink tint to illuminate skin pre-makeup, but dries down to a translucent, matte finish. Like the name suggests, Optical Illusion Complexion Primer creates an optical veil of scattered light, giving skin a soft-focus effect. The result? A beautiful, airbrushed finish (no Photoshop skills necessary!) Our easy formula provides just enough glide to fill in lines for a smoothed-out complexion, and it dries down to the perfect powdery finish.

In a clinical study of Optical Illusion Complexion Primer, immediately after use:*
• 90% of participants had a reduction in pore visibility.
• 90% had smoother-looking skin.
• 93% had more even-toned skin.
• 81% had a visible reduction in fine lines and blemishes.
*Based on clinical grading in a 30-person study.

This cushiony formula contains optical blurring pigments for beautifully perfected skin. A luxurious blend of argan, rosehip and meadowfoam seed oils provides moisturizing and antioxidant benefits while vitamin E conditions.
Optical Illusion Complexion Primer comes in a luxurious clear bottle with a metallized gunmetal cap and base. We even equip the bottle with an airless pump—so it’s easy to get out every last bit of product.
28 ml / 0.95 fl oz

Urban Decay OPTICAL ILLUSION Pore Perfecting Complexion Primer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 213.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing I was really excited to buy this primer and at £16 I thought it was a reasonable price. However after two weeks of wearing it every day I’m gutted. It makes my foundation look really cakey and at the end of the day my foundation had small streaks (and my skin is not that oily :() I have a tiny bit of dry skin and usually with a bit of foundation it is covered but this primer seems to cling to it and illuminates it more. I will say this though the box is very pretty and the primer itself goes on velvety smooth, hence the two stars. Really wanted this to work as I’m a big fan of UD but I’m gonna go back to body shop

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dry finish & sits in creases This does NOT work well on my semi-dry skin. It feels tacky when being applied and doesn’t feel like it blends out or smooths in. After I apply my foundation it looks far too powdery and it sticks to every tiny bit of dry skin, really exsentuating it. It also sinks in to all the lines and creases in my face and makes them way more obvious. I honestly feel like it ages me by about 10 years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful This blends lovely over the skin and always gives me a flawless look. I’ve worn it constantly for the past 3 months and it hasn’t broken me out, where as others have. I will definitely buy it again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Color me impressed! I just bought this yesterday, and I couldn't wait until today to try it out! OMG! My makeup has never looked better! I have quite large pores on my cheeks, and it has been next to impossible to cover them with foundation and concealer. When I discovered this primer, I had to give it a shot, and I am thoroughly impressed! My pores have practically vanished, and my complexion looks even and smooth. I will definitely be a return customer for this! It is heaven-sent!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Maybe user error? It is very light. It might be user error, but I don’t notice that it helps to cancel out my pores.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes a Difference! I’ve gotten so many compliments on my makeup when I wear it. Love the way it makes my skin feel- so soft and smooth. Wish it came in a larger size and cost a little less especially since it’s I orimier.
