Good Morning Lovelies,
I thought I would share with you more from my recent Makeup Revolution Haul. This time I am going to review the Ultra Face Base Primer. I have had quite a few months without a primer and have been trying to fill that void in my life XD When I was going through the Make Up Revolution website this was the only primer they had at the time. I liked the idea of it because it seemed a bit like the Maybelline Dream Smooth Primer, which I really liked (and it was my first post too).
The tube is actually pretty big for $5.00 GBP
How does it work?
It is a clear gel that smooths over your skin very easily. I tend to squeeze a small amount out, put it on my nose, chin and forehead first and then smear the rest over the rest of my face. You don’t have to use it all over, but I like to. It is best if you put it on at least a minute before you apply your foundation, just to give it time to set.
How did it perform?
Just by itself it make your skin all silky and smooth, it makes your skin little matte too. I had forgotten how easy primer made everything. I think it helps a little with making sure your foundation last, but its more about how easily your foundation goes on and how it sits on your skin. Boy does it help. My foundation is less likely to sit in my pores or bunch when I use this primer. I use a brush to apply my foundation and I find it easier and quicker to blend it in. I find that my makeup looks nicer for longer. I already use quite a long wearing foundation, but I think the pretty smoothed and brightened look lasts a bit longer than it normally would. The main part being that it doesn’t sink into creases/wrinkles as the day goes by. WIN!
Will I repurchase?
I am such a product fiend, I will keep buying and trying new products until I fully fall in love with a product. Take my foundation for instance, it took me ten plus years of makeup wearing for me to stick to one foundation for everyday wear. I am now on my third…erm fourth bottle of MAC prolong wear, this has never happened before. Even though I still try other foundations I still always turn back to it. Don’t get me wrong, I really like it but it is not super amazingly different from other products more readily available in stores here in NZ. If it was sold in stores here, then I would be fully converted. Come on NZ sort yourself out! If I am buying from Makeup Revolution again once I am closer to running out I will pick up another one.
If you find yourself filling your cart with Makeup Revolution goodies, do throw this awesome little primer in. It is a good price and an excellent product.
Thanks for stopping by!
