Primer is a product that generally gets overlooked by me, which is odd considering that I own quite a few.
I usually just feel like they add an unnecessary layer on my face and, seeing as I don't usually have a problem with make up lasting on me, I don't feel like it's an important step.
Having said that, now that we're coming into Summer, I have realised that my make up is going to fade a lot faster in the sunny weather.
With this in mind, I was more interested than usual when I heard about the latest primer release from L'oreal, one of my favourite brands.
I picked it up hoping that it could solve my make up worries so, read on to hear my thoughts!
What They Say
This silicon-based primer promises to mattify, prepare and smooth the skin.
It will glide on seamlessly while minimising the appearance of fine lines and pores, the perfect pre-foundation step!
What I Say
I like the packaging of this, the squeezy tube is handy and the nib is great for squeezing out the right amount of product.
This clear primer has a slippy silicon texture to it and I like to use it mainly on my T-zone where I can get a bit shiny on a long day.
It doesn't feel heavy on my skin at all like some primers and sinks in quickly but, if silicon doesn't agree with your skin, then I would steer clear of this formulation.
I like to apply this underneath dewy foundations on the days when I want to tone down the sheen and it works very well as it doesn't make a dewy foundation dull, it still lets some radiance come through.
I found my foundation blended well over this primer and all in all it's just a great little product and one I'll get a lot of use out of in the Summer months.
Check it out guys!
