I'm a big fan of a good face primer. I wouldn't be without one - infact the thought of not using one daily scares me somewhat! So when MUA released this little beauty I knew it had to be mine. Well it didn't HAVE to be, but I'm guessing if you're reading this you're as beauty obsessed as I am and probably understand what I mean!
As always I've included a summary at the end :)
You know sometimes when you buy things online you make assumptions on a product that aren't true? For some reason I was expecting this to be 30ml (not that it says it is anywhere), but actually you get 15ml. But for £4, this isn't too much of an issue! The packaging is really good, practical and easy to distinguish. This is definitely a primer aimed at those with larger pores, being silicone based, which I like!
What did I think?
On the packaging this says 'Complexion Balancing Primer' and although this isn't colour correcting or anything I would have to agree with the claim! There is a slight tint to the product as you can probably see from the swatch, which helps to even everything out, infact very similar to the Benefit Porefessional and Too Faced Primed & Poreless. However you'll need to apply a little bit more of the MUA product to get the same pore 'filling' effect! It's great for that, however I don't find that it keeps me particularly matte - they could do with marketing this differently!
|Using this Primer :)|
The Good - Hides larger pores, tinted so evens out the skin a little bit, cheap, value, dupe for the higher end primers mentioned.
The Not so Good - Doesn't keep me matte like the name would suggest!
Would I repurchase? Yes absolutely, a much cheaper alternative to my Benefit Porefessional (which is almost empty!).

I'm pretty happy I've stumbled across this as I really find that it does make my skin look really nice. And okay it doesn't keep my skin matte, but I have powder/setting sprays that can do that for me, so I'm still happy! Have you tried this yet? Thanks for stopping by, Hannah
