Shoppers 55+ adore Fran Drescher's favorite primer for 'bright and beautiful' makeup, and it's over 50% off

It turns out that Fran Drescher's glowing skin may be within reach for us regular folks. Drescher partnered with cosmetics brand Laura Geller on a collection of primers designed to impart a custom finish, from an ethereal glow to perfectly matte. Other stars like Bethenny Frankel and Paulina Porizkova have joined suit. But back to Drescher: The star's go-to? The brand's Spackle Primer. And it's majorly marked down to just $16 at Amazon.

The primer is especially effective on aging skin because it doesn't settle into creases and fine lines, fans say.

This fan- and celeb-favorite usually retails for $36, but you can pick it up right now for just $16. Not only is that a 54% discount, but it's one of the lowest prices we've seen this marked down to at Amazon. Since this is a limited-time deal, don't wait to scoop up this steal!

The primer is a must-have in Drescher's makeup bag. She shared on Instagram that it's the ultimate multitasker — it's so hydrating that she can skip using a moisturizer. It's formulated to slough away dry, flaky skin and create a smooth, porcelain-like finish. It's lightweight, not greasy or tacky, so you may even forget it's even there, fans say. Plus, you can wear it alone or under foundation.

"It keeps my makeup looking bright and beautiful all day long," Drescher gushed.

This Laura Geller favorite has also garnered praise from many shoppers over the age of 55. More than 3,800 Amazon shoppers say it's a five-star buy.

"Now that I'm 67 years old, wow, what a difference," shared a shopper. "I've spent a small fortune on all kinds of foundations, and my skin just didn't look good. With this primer in champagne, my skin is transformed into a younger-looking, smoother complexion. It's a keeper, for sure."

Another long-time fan shared: "I'm a 58-year-old woman with beautiful skin. This is the only primer for me, and I've been using it for years!"

A third chimed in: "Excellent primer! I am 55 years old, and I have tried everything to get rid of the fine lines under my eyes. Finally, I found a primer that I put on before my powder foundation, and it doesn't settle into fine lines. I look younger! It's very lightweight, but it works. Everyone should try it because it really does work. I'm never going to buy anything else."

Like any beauty product, this primer isn't a miracle worker. As one reviewer noted: "The product was okay, I didn't notice a significant change in the appearance of my skin when using it. The cream glides on nicely, makes skin feel nice and soft, and provides an even base under makeup or BB/CC cream."

Another shared: "Unfortunately, this primer is not the best one for hiding large pores. It does work for smoothing the surface of the skin and helping grip your foundation. However, if you have large pores, you might want to look elsewhere."

Shoppers and celebs alike say this hydrating primer helps makeup glide on effortlessly.
