How are you all doing? Sorry I have been MIA from blogging for a while as last few weeks were very hectic. I was busy with work and studies and a lots of other things but now I am back. I have my exams in December so Iam not going to be as active but today I am here to share just a quick post.
Today's post is going to be a product review and it is a makeup primer. Until recently I used to think that we do not need makeup primer at all and just using a moisturizer underneath my foundation is fine because many makeup artists say that using a primer gives a more made up and artificial look and it does not have a very Big effect on staying power of makeup so its not worth using.
But then one day I saw this Makeup Revolutions ultra face base primer and since it was so inexpensive I thought of giving it a try. So did this poduct change my beliefs or not? Read on for details...
First the packaging:
It comes in a very light pink squeezy plastic tube with a leakage proof black cap that makes it perfectly travel-friendly.
Our ULTRA Face Base primer is the perfect primer to provide the perfect base under your foundation. It smoothes out the skin to create an even canvas so your foundation is flawless and lasts all day!
Propylparaben, Methylparaben, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone Crosspolymer. Oh it has lots of paraben which is not good for our skin ( you can read details in this post).
The product is a thick transpsarent gel having a silicon like texture and I love how soft it feels when I apply it on my face. I tried applying it underneath a bb cream, liquid and mousse foundation and I felt that it makes the blending and application very easy, quick and smooth.
My pores are not that visible and a regular foundation does a pretty good job of covering them so I don't know if it actually helps in giving a poreless application but yes I can vouch that it increases the longevity of my makeup. I have a normal/ combination skin so after few hours of wearing makeup my nose and chin starts getting oily but for more than a month I am using this primer and it keeps my face matte whole day . I wear my makeup everyday in the morning at around 8:30 AM and it stays there until I get back home from work which is around 6-7 in the evening and that makes about 11 hours so I think it lives upto its claim of increasing makeup staying power.
How to use:
I first apply sunscreen and moisturizer on my face and let them set in after that I just apply a very little amount of primer and let it sit for 1-2 minutes and then carry on with my makup.
The thing I like most about this primer is I just need a very little amount of it. I have been using this tube for more than a month now and still it is nowhere near end.
Price and availability:
It is available on makeup revolutions's website. In Pakistan, I got mine from daraz.pk around two months ago for Rs.850/- but I don't know why I can not find it on their website now.
I would recommend this primer to everyone because it is budget friendly and does a very good job and yes now I am convinced that investing in a makeup primer is a good idea especially if you want to wear makeup for long hours.
Hope this review is helpful for you. Tell me do you use primers underneath you makeup or not?
That's it for today
