Hello everyone, today i’m going to be reviewing luscious cosmetics face primer. Before i start, let me tell you what i primer is/does?
- it helps in making your makeup last longer
- It evens out your skin tone
- it helps in reducing the size of large pores
- helps in delaying the oiliness which may come after a few hours of wearing makeup
I got this primer back in October last year, i was on the hunch for finding a good primer, i short listed a couple of primers and in the end i really liked this one, the only thing i was worried about was the ‘whitening base’ effect which this product claims, now we all know having a white sheet of film on your face in pictures makes you look like a ghost and ain’t nobody got time for that!
But after reading a considerable amount of reviews i decided to buy it. The product itself is of creamy consistency and is white in colour, the reason why its white is because its a hybrid of sunblock and face primer which all in all is pretty good for the skin. When i first applied it on i used my Maybelline foundation in porcelain ivory over it and then i took a picture of myself with flash to see how white it had made my face ,and to my horror i was a ghost, yikes! so i washed off my face and decided to give it another try this time with a darker foundation shade (Maybelline dream matte mousse in shade nude light 4) and it worked perfectly, i was no longer a white Persian cat!
I noticed that my skin felt incredibly smooth after using the primer and the pores on my face were significantly smaller in size, i also noticed that after using this product my skin required very little foundation as it covered most of the dark spots on my face. My make up lasted for a decent amount of time as well (extra points);
The product itself promises ;
- oil free makeup primer
- broad spectrum SPF 35 UVA/UVB protection
- lightens dark spots for an even skin tone
