What is a primer and what is it used for?
Well I’ll finally answer this for you guys!
I find that primers have become very popular only recently. Yes they have been around for a while, but only recently everyone is talking about it and a lot more people have started using it. So what’s so good about the primers?
Face primers are used to prep your skin for foundation. It fills lines and pores, which makes your skin look very smooth and is suppose to help your foundation go on nicer and easier. Primers also makes your makeup last much longer, thats if you have a good primer.
Almost every make up brand has a primer, you just have to find one that you like and works best for your skin.
One of the most recent popular primers is the Benefit Porefessional, and I have tried and I really like it! it helped me around my T-Zone area.
The cost of Benefit Porefessional is 31.00$ and it lasts a while if you don’t use to much of it.
But I wanted to try another primer and see if it would work the same so I tried the NYX Pore Filler Primer.
The NYX Pore Filler is the same colour as theBenefit Porefessional. Which is the light skin tone colour.
When applying it, it felt just like the Benefit Porefessional.
However it didn’t give me the same result.
* It didn’t seem to work well on dry skin.
* It didn’t last long enough.
* My make up didn’t last any longer than it would without it.
* Make up can look patchy and cakey.
* Didn’t seem to work well with Oil Skin.
For these kind of results I will not be repurchasing this product. I would rather spend 31.00$ on a product that actually works and does help with my make up staying on longer.
Here is what some of you had to say about this product:
KMAY – I’m not impressed with this. I have never used a primer before and this made my make up look cakey and uneven. Cost me 12 euros and this sucked!
Melmel5690 – No. Just NO! I have pretty dry skin for my age so that may be a problem but when I use this it does not settle in and made my foundation started sliding everywhere. I hate this stuff.
Beckmac1 – Love this product it does what the name says. I will be repurchasing this product again for sure. When you get old your pores become A LOT more noticeable and I hate that, but this product makes me feel much better about myself.
Tammydolly22 – I think this product is over priced for how it performs in camparison to other primers ($14)This pore filler works DECENTLY but it slightly exagerates any dry patches. There are other drugstore primers that work better with the same price tag.
