On my recent trip to NYC I just had to stop by Sephora, where I finally picked up the primer everyone has been talking about. You know the one that supposedly keeps your makeup flawless for a 15 hour span. That’s quite a hefty time frame right??
Function & Feel:
It took some getting used to applying my primer from the stick form because I’m used to a slightly liquid formula you squeeze out. So this stick feels kind of reminds me of a glue stick when rubbing on my face and does feel a bit thicker than most of my other primers. I drew it all over my face, then quickly rubbed in with the warmth of my fingers, then applied my foundation right after with my new favorite sponge I bought on the same trip to Sephora.
I have normal to dry skin, so oil production isn’t an issue with me which is a benefit to my foundation usually not sliding off my skin like some women struggle with. But this primer did seem to help my drugstore foundation (L’Oreal True Match) stay on rather nicely despite the elements. It also made my skin look more flawless than when I wear the foundation alone. It didn’t feel as thick after the initial application so it definitely soaked in and felt nice.
What do you think of these results? Have you given this primer the Benefit of the doubt??
