This primer came in the January GlossyBox. I have previously spent no more than £12 on a primer, and always stuck with the £5 mark as I thought all were the same really. However, when I got a sample size of this product to try out (full size £29), I was excited as it was more upmarket, and scared that I would love it. Unfortunately (for my bank balance), I did. & as GlossyBox gave a discount code for use on the website I snapped up two full-sized boxes. Ouch.
The primer itself is a dark tan colour, and of a fairly thin consistency. At first this scared me a little, but it claims to blend into your skin tone. & I'm also using a bright lilac primer by No.7 at the moment so a skin colour shouldn't scare me too much!
As you can see, a little does go a long way. It feels super smooth and extremely light, unlike some primers that do feel like an extra skin. I apply it over my moisturiser before it has totally soaked into my skin.
After blending in, the primer has indeed perfectly matched my skin tone.
I purchased the primer for a dewy finish. When I looked at my hand closely, there was a sheer sparkley shimmer all over it. I had never noticed this on my face before. I also have slighty oily skin, and this doesn't really affect it which is great. They also do a matte finish version, which is usually my preference but I loved the dewy finish sample so much I decided to stick with it.
The 5ml sample bottle I got in the January box is still going strong after over 2 months of almost everyday use, so really, £29 on a 30ml bottle that will probably last over half a year isn't so bad, right?
Overall, I think this primer is AMAZING. My foundation lasts all day without fail! I have also used it under tinted moisturiser with a great result also. I love a dewy look and this gives it beautifully, even improving my oily skin.
If you tried it from your GlossyBox, what did you think? I haven't read any raves about it yet!
Til next time folks xxx
