Me and primers have never really got on, half the time I find their formula's seem to curdle on my skin leaving me looking like I have coated my face in PVA glue and then rubbed it off, then the other half of the time it just makes me feel greasy and like it doesn't help my make up stay put. Even though I seem to have this trouble with them I am sill out there looking for my perfect primer as I want beautifully smooth skin with a poreless look.
Let me first start off by telling you that I like the packaging and that's about as far as it goes for me! I wanted to love it as I had read many a review of people loving it and it doing wonderful things for them but for me I think its up there with one of the worst which I didn't expect as I normally love Maybelline products.
For me the formula felt very greasy and non soft and velvety like most primers do, when I applied it to my skin it did that curdling bitty PVA glue thing and just didn't really give me much pleasure in applying it. I did persevere though and tried again hoping it was a one off thing which it isn't but it isn't an all the time thing so I think it depends on my moisturiser. Although it felt greasy once applied onto the skin it didn't actually feel greasy and blurred out some pores but not on a level I would of thought it would due to other reviews I've seen and my skin was barely smoother than when I started, it also didn't improve any sort of make up wear time on the several occasions I have tried to make it work.
I think I shall stick to my L'Oreal Lumi Magique Primer which does everything I want it to and is the perfect primer apart from the fact its illuminating, I would like a plain one because sometimes I just don't want to be too glowy!
What is your favourite primer? Do you have any recommendations for me?
