You all know me by now and you know that I am someone that really values a good primer, and over the years I have tried a fair few of those on offer. My ultimate favourite is probably the L’Oreal Studio Secrets primer because the thick moose helps to fill my pores and helps my make-up to stay firmly in place but I’m always looking for new High-street offerings. I don’t usually purchase Max Factor make-up, it just doesn’t do it for me, but I was really excited when I received the Max Factor Face Finity primer in my May Glossybox and I was really excited to try it out.
My instant thought when I first saw this beauty was the size, as I normally find that I go through pots of primers like fun because they seem to come in the most frustratingly small sizes. It’s also a watery consistency meaning that the tiniest amount blends effortlessly across the skin. I generally pick thick and luxurious primers because I find the texture works better on my combination skin, so I was fairly sceptical when I first pumped this pearl white liquid on to the back of my hand.
My scepticism was immediately proven premature however because this is potentially the best primer that I have ever tried. This primer is really easy to blend and it helps create a lovely surface for foundation. Better yet, my skin immediately looked brightened and any redness seemed to fade away. The best bit however, is the lasting time because this combined with my newest foundation crush, ensured that my make-up remained in place all day, something I generally struggled with.
This is a really fantastic product and while I envisage it being a while until it’s necessary for me to do so, I will definitely be repurchasing this.
