What They Say:
Easy to use and effortlessly blendable, this 17 Photo Flawless Primer is designed to apply before foundation to smooth your skin and assist the application of your base, leaving skin even and freshall day long.
17 make-up artist Vanesa Guallar says:
“Apply the silky formula all over your face and to the eye area and massage into the skin. Not only will it ensure your make-up is even by minimising pores, it will create the perfect canvas for your foundation allowing it to glide on seamlessly.”
How I use it:
- I squeezed a tiny bit of product on to the back of my hand (about the size of half a pea) and then dotted it over the areas of my face where I have large pores (around the nose) and also where I tend to get oily (t-zone).
- Then I smoothed it into the skin until it had all sunk in.
- I then applied my foundation on top :)
What I think:
I used this primer last night when I went out 'on the town' (lol) and it did it's job perfectly. It kept me shine free all night which is amazing as I usually have to powder while i'm out as I dance like a mad woman and get all sweaty (ew). When I got in my foundation was still looking pretty good considering it had been on a good 8 hours a little wearing off but not much considering I have oily skin. I did plan on taking photos of before and after but the vodka got the better of me and it completely slipped my mind. I also noticed that it did make my pores appear smaller when I applied it, usually I take 'pore minimising' claims with a pinch of salt but I could actually see a difference.
I'd say give this primer a go if you're looking for one at an affordable price as in my opinion it does live up to it's claims.
