Huda Beauty GloWish Blur Jam Silicone-Free Smoothing Primer Review and Comparison

Hi, dolls!
Today, I want to tell you all about Huda's newest silicone-free smoothing primer, launched as a part of her GloWish range. If you're interested to find out all about it and how it compares to Huda's Water Jelly hydrating primer, let's get right into the review!

This post may contain gifted products/affiliate links. However, my reviews/opinions on products are always 100% honest and I'll only recommend items that I love!

Blur Jam is an instantly smoothing, mattifying and breathable primer that is silicone-free and jam-packed with skin-loving ingredients for all day hydration and 12 hour pore-blurring power! It's infused with Damascus rose water, prickly pear and cactus flower extract - this formula helps to boost hydration, maintain skin barrier protection and extend makeup wear for up to 12 hours. 

In my opinion, Blur Jam primer is truly a filter in a bottle! Once applied, it gives a filter-like effect on the skin by visibly blurring pores instantly. As it's water-based primer, you do need to allow couple of minutes for this primer to dry on skin before applying any product on top but once it does, it works really well with other complexion products such as foundations and concealers. You can still wear it on no-makeup days simply for the blurring effect! 

This primer has a great texture with consistency that looks like jam and once applied to the skin it has a cooling effect. It has no-silicone and is very hydrating plus it leaves the skin looking blurred and super smooth. It's very important to let this primer dry a little bit before applying any products on top because it's a water-based primer. It will definitely make your pores vanish and keep your face looking and feeling matte all day long!

Water Jelly is an ultra-hydrating primer that smooth and quenches skin with a surge of moisture to create the perfect canvas that's ready to grip makeup in place for long-lasting, flawless wear. 

I have always enjoyed the jelly water texture of this primer as it's super light-weight and easy to apply. It melts into my skin almost immediately and not only does it add hydration but also gives my skin a healthy and glowy look. It works great with all my favourite foundations and without a doubt, helps to hold my makeup in place for much longer. 

Which Huda Beauty primer is better? 
Well, it's up to you to decide!

Personally, I use both of these primers depending on the occasion and my mood as both of them prime the skin really well and extend my makeup wear. However, if you are looking for a super hydrating primer that will leave your skin with a dewy finish, then Water Jelly Hydrating Primer would be the one for you. On the other hand, if you're someone who is looking for a pore-blurring and mattifying primer that also adds extra hydration to your skin, then I would recommend you trying out the newest GloWish Blur Jam primer. You can always have the best of both worlds by trying out both and testing them out for yourself - I am pretty confident that you will not regret this choice!

  1. Blur jam is one of the nicest primers I've tried! I haven't heard of the water jelly one yet, so thank you for introducing it to me :)

  2. Great review! I usually don’t wear primers under my makeup but I will try to get blur jam. I have oily skin, so I think this one will be a better fit for me.

  3. I really liked Huda’s matte primer back in the day in black packaging. Nice to see her add new ones to her range too

  4. The texture of blur jam is amazing!
