The Ordinary High-Spreadability Fluid Primer
“I LOVE THIS”
I love this primer. It’s so silky smooth and my makeup sat so nicely on it. I’m acne prone and it didn’t irritate my skin in any way. So glad I go it!
This is brilliant. The Ordinary for another win. Goes in smoothly. Lasts all day. A little goes a long way. I have very dry skin and this is amazing. Highly recommend. Also, the price is brilliant.
Ofra Cool As A Cucumber Primer
This primer is so underrated!! So moisturising but also makes your face kinda tacky so makes sure your foundation will stick and last, smells amazing too. Definitely recommend if you have dry/normal skin, so lightweight on the skin too!
“I LOVE THIS PRIMER”
A great hydrating primer. Good at reducing the look of pores and makes make up last well. I use light coverage foundation and I don’t notice any kind of cracking and minimal movement throughout the day. Does smell strongly of cucumber but personally isn’t an issue for me. I will buy this again.
NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP THE MARSHMELLOW SMOOTHING PRIMER
“SMELLS AS GOOD AS IT WORKS”
Smells lovely, applies to skin easy and leaves a slight tacky feeling for makeup to stick to after applying which I love!
“BEST PRIMER I’VE USED!”
This is honestly the best primer I’ve used. It’s moisturizing, hydrating, and keeps my makeup on all day whether I only top it with powder or foundation. It feels light on the skin and also smells very nice, which is a plus imo.
NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP HONEY DEW MELON PLUMPING PRIMER
One of the best primers I’ve ever used, sets face nicely and makes skin glow even after foundation
Nice texture and colour. blends easily and leaves a nice subtle glow
E.L.F. COSMETICS PORELESS PUTTY PRIMER
The best primer I have ever used for reducing visible pores. Long lasting too
“WORTH THE BUY”
I love this product it’s one I always seem to come back too as I notice when I don’t use. It does exactly what it says it does
CLINIQUE SUPERPRIMER UNIVERSAL FACE PRIMER
Having tried many different primers I absolutely love this one. I find this is a must have in my routine. Paired with a good foundations and my face looks and feels so good. I’ve noticed a significant reduction in the number of blemishes on my skin since using this, compared to other primers.
Great product that gives skin a lovely, smooth and bright finish once foundation has been applied on top.
KEVYN AUCOIN SENSUAL SKIN PRIMER
“THIS PRIMER IS AMAZING”
I have tried many primer before but this one woow …Once I start using it I wonder how I ever lived without it.
I really enjoyed this product. It feels really smooth and light on the skin. My foundation just glided on perfectly. Really really love it.
TOO FACED HANGOVER PRIMER
Lightweight & makes my foundation look like skin
“PERFECT FOR DRY SKIN”
This is my favourite primer for my dry skin. Without this primer or with any other primer I’ve tried, I find my foundation cracking up or sticking to dry patches after a while. With this primer I do not have that problem and my skin feels great.
