Last month, I was browsing through the Maquilallia’s website and came across a primer from The Ordinary I had seen a few fellow bloggers talk about this brand so I decided to give it a try. I paid 4,90€ for a 30ml squeeze tube. It comes in very pretty packaging if I do say so myself. I love minimal packaging so this was just up my alley.
This was actually the second primer I’ve ever bought. The first one was a Catrice primer that didn’t do anything for my makeup, it only made it last even less than it usually does. Alongside being a primer, this product is also a moisturiser, so you can use it at the end of your skincare routine.
I use the tiniest amount of this primer (about a pea-size amount) and that is enough product to cover my entire face. Upon application, it feels super smooth and the texture is much different than the catrice primer I talked about above. It’s like a instant hydration boost! After a few seconds on the skin, the product’s blurring effect is quite visible. It’s like real-life Photoshop. My foundation applies on perfectly on top of it.
After using it for the past month, I can say this primer does make my makeup last a lot longer than usual. Normally, by the middle of the day, my makeup is already coming of in the areas around my nose and chin, but with this primer, my makeup looks as great by the end of the day as it does in the morning.
If you are like me and have a very oily T zone or you’re just looking for a good primer, I couldn’t recommend this product enough! It does it’s job impeccably and it is extremely cheap.
Let me know if you’ve ever tried this primer and what your experience with it was.
