Primer samples please

Since a lot of us are still looking for primers and wasting money on some… after finding out that #UrbanDecay has discontinued the one and only primer I have found useful… #urban decay optical illusion primer… can Sephora have some primer samples because I would hate to buy some and keep returning them. I feel lost and since then I have bought 3 primers that I didn’t like. I don’t know why they discontinued this primer… I don’t care if I have to pay for trial size primers… it’s better then wasting money on primers that just sit gathering dust. I order everything online and I don’t have time returning stuff. Alot of us just started wearing makeup again after the mandatory mask mandate. Thank you! @everyone@sephora



Re: Primer samples please

Sorry to hear your fav was discontinued 😔 that is always a bummer @SuzyBelle26 


If you can't make it in to a store, I second what @CorgiMommy mentioned, and grabing them as samples with you purchases whenever you can, 


You mentioned you wouldn't mind paying for Trial sizes? Type in Mini Primer into the search bar and you'll get a list of the smallest ones available for purchase,


Another idea is to find the Thread Ask a Beauty Expert and tag one of Sephora's Pro Artists. Tell them what your looking for your primer to do, what you loved about the old one, maybe they can recommend a good one for you to try?


I hope this helps! 


Re: Primer samples please

i have been able to try different primers by asking for samples in store.  If there is one near you go and ask .  I think you can get up to three at a time.  Tell the sales associate want you needs are and they will find ones that work.


If you order on line pick the primer foils when available.


Primers I really like are Tatcha The Silk Canvas Protective PrimerCharlotte Tilbury Brightening Youth Glow Primer 1.35 oz/ 40mL  and NARS Radiance Primer 1 oz/ 30 mL 


Love to hear what you decide on.

Re: Primer samples please

I don’t have time to go to the Sephora store. I work odd hours and if I buy something from Sephora it’s online. 

Re: Primer samples please

@SuzyBelle26 @Can you go into a store?  I’m sure they can either make you some or have some sample packettes. 

Re: Primer samples please

Don’t have time… and go figure on my day off I am stuck at the car dealership after they fixed my car last week. 

Re: Primer samples please

@SuzyBelle26 Can you have friends or family members get you samples at any beauty counter?
