Reasons to love this new skin primer, whipped up by Australian makeup guru Napoleon Perdis: 1) It keeps foundation and powder on your face all day. 2) It can replace your moisturizer. 3) It smells amazing, like jasmine tea and lilac. 4) Teri Hatcher, Gemma Ward, and the mom from The O.C. are all alleged fans. I don’t normally care about celebrity beauty routines, but when a Desperate Housewife, an in-demand supermodel, and the fictional mother of Adam Brody all use something I’ve just discovered, it definitely piques my curiosity—especially since it’s finally available to American civilians, thanks to a Saks launch last month.
