Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer


First off I know I haven't been sticking to my posting schedule recently and I'm sorry! I have been absolutely run off my feet recently with uni work and my job, so I do apologize that I haven't been as organised as usual and my blog has taken the back seat! That said I'm going to be spending this whole evening editing and scheduling and doing bloggy things so expect my posts to be up every other day as usual by next week! I've also not been doing much lifestyle type posts so I definitely need to get my thinking cap on, find some inspiration and just start writing!

Anyways, the whole point of this post is that I want to talk about my new secret weapon the Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer. Now for me I find it so difficult to find a half decent primer whether that is high end or drugstore. In fact my old favourite Porefessional breaks me out so much its not even worth buying anymore. I really like the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer (probably the reason I bought a Revlon one with a similar name) as its the only one that doesn't break me out and seems to make my foundation last ages. However, I'm not keen on the silicone feel and I'm always a little aware of it on my skin. 

So how does this newbie compare? Well I'm glad to report that this one ticks all the boxes so much so that I didn't even have to powder once during the day and that's saying something as I'm normally an oil slick by noon. The primer makes skin baby soft, blurs out imperfections beautifully and has a lovely soft focus sort of effect on the skin. This makes the perfect base for a flawless application of foundation that really does last all day. And it's a huge bonus that it did all of this without breaking me out as I really struggle to find a primer that doesn't!

I'm honestly so impressed with this as its really solved all of my primer woes, and I will definitely be repurchasing when this runs out. This is definitely a great product for those of us who have oily skin as it combats oil without making you break out! 

Do any of you use a primer ? What ones are your favourites?

  4. I actually don't use a primer, I used to wear a Rimmel one but I didn't think it was doing anything. This looks interesting though! X

  5. It's a shame Porefessional broke you out, I've never found that but must be something to do with blocking your pores? This sounds really good, not having to powder is always a bonus!
