- Product Focus: Primer...
Primer is one of those products I used to ignore and tended not to use. I guess I didn't know much about it and deemed it pointless. However, this year I've seen & read a lot about many different ones and my interest grew. Whilst going through my stash of products, I realised I now have quite a few so I thought I'd share my thoughts on them.
L'Oreal Paris Lumi Magique Primer £9.99
This primer provides a subtle glow and illuminates skin. The product comes out as white, but it rubs into skin effectively leaving no residue. It is advised to apply this is a '3' shape from your forehead, to your nose and then to your chin in order to highlight bone structure. I love this product as I'm a fan of 'dewy' looking skin.
ARK Skincare Protector Primer £36
I received this product as it was part of the goodie bag at the wonderful #InsideOutBeauty event during #LFW. I find this primer really hydrating and a perfect base for make up. More importantly, it contains SPF 30 which is a huge bonus as it protects skin from UVA and UVB rays.
Pixi Flawless and Poreless Primer £20.50*
I wouldn't say this product glides on as such, but once it is applied and absorbed into skin it really works! Pores appear to be less visible and I can confirm that it increases the longevity of make up.
Benefit POREfessional £24.50 (22ml)
For me, this primer leaves my skin feeling the softest and most velvety! This is the UK's No.1 best selling primer and I can see why as it does conceal pores and feels really lightweight on!
L-R: L'Oreal, ARK, Pixi & Benefit
Overall, I don't dislike any of these primers and would recommend all of them! I would say choosing a primer completely depends on what results you're after. As you can tell from this post each one of these primers has a plus point, whether it's luminosity, protection, longevity or texture. It's safe to say, I'm now a primer convert!
Which primer do you use? Have you tried any of these ones?
