MUA Professional Primer
Hey guys,hope your all well! So this review has been highly requested after my little MUA haul,Iv'e been trying out this primer for the last couple days and have come to the conclusion that i do quite like it.
On the packaging it boasts 'A velvety smooth formula that feels light on your skin and creates a flawless even complexion. Wear, alone or under foundation for a long lasting finish.' I would have to agree with this to a point I don’t think it evens out complexion but it defiantly think it provides a great base for foundation but for a mere price of £4 for 27ml you can’t complain.
First let me start off by saying I have normal to dry skin and this primer works well for me because of that but I can see that people with oily skin may find this product a little troublesome as it is VERY VERY shiny!The primer has a weird consistency and applies like a runny moisturiser but leaves your skin feeling smooth and velvety. I find my foundation is much easier to apply with this primer underneath. It also has a strong floral scent when applied but after it has sunken in to your skin (takes about a minute) you no longer notice it.
Normally without using a primer my foundation lasts all day but I've found after around 6 hours I need to touch up around my nose(because of redness) and sometimes around my eyes but with this primer I no longer need to touch up my foundation which is always a plus!
One day this week I did try out this primer without foundation. I added a light dusting of translucent powder over the top to reduce the shine and although it didn't give me the cover I was used to it made my skin look a lot better and I felt confident enough without foundation.
not great for oily skin
Good value for money
Leaves skin feeling soft,velvety and smooth
foundation lasts longer
foundation is easier to apply
This wouldn't be my first choice of primer if I had all the money in the world to spend but for those who have a lower budget for primers (like I do) I would highly recommend you give this a try. Although for those of you with oily skin I would steer clear!
