Hope all of you are enjoying summers with ice candies and water games! Today, I am here to share another must-have award winning primer from Revlon, which is a must-have for everyone. I prefer it over my Neutrogena primer. Well, I am not into face makeup or eye makeup completely, but I did realize the significance of makeup and grooming in our life. Don’t you think we are most confident when we feel good about ourselves. I mean obviously we are confident from within which reflects on our face naturally, but sometimes when we are tinch pinch with that hint of eyeliner or lipstick or smooth bright face, doesn’t it give us an enthusiastic mood all the way? I had been so busy with my post-wedding responsibilities and motherhood that all beauty thoughts were deep seated in my heart somewhere, but IMBB sparked them in my mind and luckily, I had been thousand miles away from my kitchen & home where I had plenty of time for I , me and myself! I fully utilized this opportunity in grooming and exploring new places with my better half and baby. I totally support and agree that we all should take a short/long break every quarter month, it really helps in getting back on track with new energy and hopes know. Let’s get back straight to my latest love Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer.
$10-$12 for 0.9 Fl Oz (27 ml), I bought it for $10.97
Lightweight primer smoothes and softens skin to create the perfect canvas. Reduces the appearance of pores and fine lines. Wear alone or under foundation. Award winning and oil free, talc free, fragrance free, paraben free primer.
This thick pale pink primer comes in a glass bottle packaging with pump dispenser opening, safely placed inside transparent cap. It does have slight faint smell which is not overpowering thankfully. It is definitely travel friendly and user friendly packaging as I took it all the way on my trip and this was my most-loved product throughout my trip.
My Experience with Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer:
This primer seems slightly soft, creamy textured which easily melts on my skin. It does not settle inside my open pores and does not exaggerate my blemishes, just effortlessly blends onto my skin leaving behind a smooth, clean canvas for further makeup sessions! I love it more than Neutrogena primer for it is really soft and gentle on my skin unlike granular Neutrogena primer. Moreover, it does not leave any white or transparent cast on my skin, just enhances my natural skin texture while making it more smooth and clear. I am really surprised with this Revlon primer and must say, this was my most used primer throughout journey and trips!
It is really easy to blend on any type of skin. My skin comes under the most extreme rough/oily category and this primer went on smoothly without leaving a hint of it on my face. All I could notice was slightly glowing and visibly clear skin, and it is good to go with just a touch of face powder and/or powder foundations in my case. I refrain from using liquid foundation these days, they usually give me oily/greasy look even if I use them over any primer or toner. However, this primer is really good to keep oil at bay for good 6-8 hours with or without setting powder and/or foundations on my face. I had quite a hectic schedule last week and as I mentioned, we had been on a trip to East Coast where we used to walk continuously for 10-14 hours and thankfully, I never felt need to touch up while using this primer and my Smashbox Perfecting Powder. Even it photographs well in pictures.
I used to keep a few touch up stuff handy, but I didn’t use them, believe me! Though it is but obvious that once we reached home, we looked tired, but I always observed a luminous and dewy sheen on my face throughout my trip. Overall, I am highly impressed with this primer which really works above average and comparable to many great high-end primers as well! It is suitable for every skin type as it never accentuated my oily and acne-prone skin and did not irritate my sensitive skin. I think we all need such stuff in our life which works for good long hours especially for oily skin beauties! I am definitely getting it again once I finish it off considering it’s super affordable and gives wonderful results on my skin.
Let’s sum up pros and cons:
