Makeup Primer #1 Review

There are many reasons why this primer is used and loved by many. First of all, it’s so smooth and dry, almost feels like baby’s bottom. A little goes a long way, you just need half the amount of other primer, and it will cover all of the area. And most importantly, it goes into all the pores, make them less visible.

However, it clumps a little bit for people with dry skin, but not completely messy. People with oily skin like it, but it’s actually pretty good for all skin types.

Application wise, the moisture in this primer make application so slippery and silky. It has a pump so it’s easy to control the amount of each use. It’s smooth and feels like your makeup will apply well. It’s also feels very lightweight on the face. It’s good for oily skin types.

Makeup Primer #2 It Has a Pump

It doesn’t minimize pores. It does seem to clump up. It’s more suitable for people with normal skin, but not too bad for oily skin. But, since the texture is silky, it feels like a barrier and a bit stuffy. People with oily skin will either love or hate it.

Primer #3 Pot Type

The only makeup primer with pot type packaging on the list.

Makeup Primer #3 Review

First of all, it feels like pudding. It’s actually good to soothe hand wrinkles too and really gets in between the wrinkles. Secondly, it feels like it went in between the skin and foundation and make them stick together tightly. It’s highly recommended for people with big pores and oily skin.

Makeup Primer #3 Thick Consistency

For people with sensitive skin, it’s not necesseraly bad since it still has moisture. It’s actually pretty similar to #1 but a bit more thicker.

Makeup Primer #3 No Spatula

It has no spatula, which is a drawback, in the sense of hygiene. Moreover, when you jam your finger into the jar, the product bound to get under the nails. But, it’s actually easy to replace the spatula with cotton swab or just getting the product the other way (with your nails).

Primer #4 Overall “OK” Product

There is always one product that is just so-so. You can’t absolutely love it or hate it because it’s great in a way, but it isn’t that amazing. This product is just like that.

Makeup Primer #4 Review

Everything about this primer is just average, nothing too outrageous. If you have only small pores, this is good enough for you because it’s already has the blurring effect. Anyone can use it, it’s useful especially for beginner in makeup primer world. And it’s also very affordable, which is probably why it’s not that great.

Makeup Primer #4 Blurring Effect

One flaw about this product is it doesn’t control oiliness nor minimize pores perfectly. It does that a little bit, but not cover it flawlessly.
