The Go-To Glow-Getter

"I've always been entranced by the natural beauty of nature's greatest gem, the precious pearl. Harnessing the luster and brilliance of crushed pearl, this all-in-one moisturizer, primer, and illuminator gives your skin a breathtakingly beautiful glow."

—Edward Bess

What is it: Behold a skin-perfecting miracle born from the heart of the Black Sea. This decadent cream harnesses the iridescence of precious pearl to impart a veil of awe-inspiring luminosity and luster to the face.

Who is it for: Anyone who wants to brighten dull, lackluster skin and reclaim the appearance of a radiant, more youthful-looking glow. Also for anyone looking to simplify a daily beauty routine with one multitasking marvel.

Why is it different: Finally a beauty breakthrough that provides the benefits of primer, highlighter, and cream all in one! This pearlescent skin-smoothing formula preps and primes so makeup looks fresh.

How do I use it: To achieve a flawless and luminous complexion, smooth a pearl-sized amount of Precious Pearl Perfector all over the face before makeup. Another great trick--instantly bring light and definition by patting the perfector in areas you wish to illuminate. Also, revitalize a drab complexion throughout the day by warming up a small amount of the perfector in your fingertips and pressing it gently over the entire face. You can even wear it alone day or night for softer, more supple skin.

From Edward Bess.

Edward Bess Precious Pearl Perfector Primer & Illuminator is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perk For Your Face! I've used multiple brand primers and this is one of the best! It goes on so smoothly and imparts a fresh-faced, healthy, natural glow. I often wear it alone, with no foundation, when I just want to go make-up free, but have polished skin. It's equally luxurious under foundation, as well. My only suggestion is that the jar is bigger/more bulky than what actually contains product. Would like to see a sleeker, more utilitarian jar design to conserve space on the vanity. I don't buy my makeup tools for the fancy packaging; I buy for what's inside. This product stands on its own!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not For Me It looked great on tv but not on my skin...made it look chalky, flat and overall not " lit from within". Felt unpleasant too. Back it goes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Perfect... My sister had me using this while on vacation with her and I had to order a jar for myself. This is the best primer I have ever used! In fact, on days that I am in a rush to get out the door to work I will apply this and no foundation. It goes on so silky and even with no tugging or blending to get an even application. Just perfect!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from NO MORE SCENTING OF PRODUCTS!!!! After viewing Edward's presentations on QVC I decided to take the plunge and try his product line. The illumination aspect of this primer was what I had been looking for which was fine however, what was not discussed during the presentation or ever by show hosts in general, is the fact that many products are scented, particularly Edward's product line. Within my order, I had also purchased lipstick and the illumination duo and those products were heavily scented as well!. For those of us who are sensitive to scents and perfumed products, it is particularly frustrating to find this out once you receive the product and incur shipping costs to return purchases rather than knowing this prior to ordering from Edward's or any other cosmetic line featured on air. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE stop scenting cosmetic products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! I don't use it as a primer. It's the last thing I put on my face after moisturizer, foundation and/or concealer and blush. I just concentrate on the middle part of my face and fan out a little on the upper sides, under and out from the eyes. It's the perfect glow. I've always wanted this look and couldn't find it. A little goes a long way. I just gently pat it on. I think this product is faultless. Highly recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not overly impressed, made my skin dry! I had high hopes for this primer after watching the presentation. After trying the product I'm dissapointed. i saw a bit of a glow when I first applied the product and while it was still wet. After it dried it just looked flat. When I applied foundation over it, the combination just made my skin look dry, even with a very good moisturizer underneath. So..... based on the price and my results I'm returning and sticking with Algenist Sublime, I like the look it gives me and it doesnt dry out my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from That's it! I am in Love...LOVE with this primer!!! I have used several primers offered on QVC, I especially love the primers that provide a pearlescent luminosity. I usually stockpile a certain brand's primer when the 4 oz. size comes available...but this Precious Pearl Perfector Primer & Illuminator has that one beat! OMG, there is so much to rave about...First, the particle size of the pearl pigment in this primer is so much finer and more radiant once it has been applied. Second, I prefer the texture of this primer, a little goes a long way because it glides onto your skin. It does not get that "tacky" feel as it begins to dry, and therefore, your foundation goes on smoother and does "clump" onto the primer. Third, it smells sensational. It evokes a sense of luxury when you apply it onto your face. I purchased 2 right away, because I read the reviews of this item online. I'm glad I did, because it is currently on wait list. I would love for QVC to continue to stock this item...maybe offer it on Auto-Delivery??? It is definitely well worth the cost!
