Makeup Collection: Primers

Hello everyone!

You may recall that I posted a makeup collection blog post in January, but I didn't really get a chance to go into too much detail about my makeup products. I thought that it would be a good idea to do dedicated blog posts on each section of my makeup collection, starting with my primers, and that way I can write individual reviews for each product too. I hope you all enjoy this new series:)

L'Oreal Infallible Mattifying Primer:
I have had this primer for such a long time and I am only half way through the tube. To be honest, I had completely forgotten about this primer until I was sorting through my makeup in preparation of my makeup collection posts. From what I remember, I really liked this primer as the formula is really light and makes my skin feel super soft. It is slightly thinner than the Benefit Porefessional but does a very similar job, so if you are on a budget and really like the Porefessional then you might just want to give this a try, 

ELF Neutralising Green Primer:
This primer has a very similar consistency to the Porefessional; it's even more similar than the L'Oreal primer I just talked about. This is fairly new to my makeup collection but it has very quickly became one of my favourite primers. It really does do a great job at minimising redness and overall improves how my makeup both applies and lasts throughout the day. 

B. Cosmetics Popping Candy Highlighting Serum:
Unfortunately this primer has been discontinued, but I am still including it in this post as it is part of my makeup collection after all. I was obsessed with this primer for such a long time as it is such a multi use product. I love applying this all over my face for a really dewy look and I also like mixing it with my foundation in the Summer time for a super healthy glowy look too. It's also really moisturising and hydrates the skin. 

Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer:
I am actually running low on this primer and desperately need to repurchase. I use this primer almost everyday as it is really reliable and guaranteed to keep my makeup in the same place all day. It absorbs into my skin really quickly and feels moisturising too. It's almost like a glue consistency and I think that the tacky formula is what keeps my makeup from wearing off. 

Benefit Porefessional:
I would totally use this primer on a daily basis if it wasn't so pricey, £27.50 is quite a lot for an everyday face primer! The formula is what I look for in a primer; light and soft. It applies on the skin beautifully, noticeably reduces the appearance of pores and mattifies the skin all at the same time. 

LA Girl Pro Prep HD Primer:
LA Girl is a brand which I really enjoyed discovering throughout last year. I do really enjoy this primer although I haven't been using it all that much recently as I have been testing out the ELF primer I previously mentioned. This isn't a groundbreaking primer but it does the job, and I like when products live up to their promises. It blurs the skin and creates a lovely canvas for applying makeup.

That is my primer collection! I don't own too many primers but the ones that I do own I really like. What is your go to primer?


Until next time,
