I probably should have reviewed this one a long time ago because I love it just that much. Spoiler alert much. I guess I wanted to wait to make sure it wasn't just a fleeting love, a fling, I wanted to make sure I was in it for the long haul. Well, I am. And speaking of long hauls...
So, the idea behind this purchase was longevity. Commuting to London and back was always going to takes it toll on my make up and I needed a primer to sort this problem out. I wasn't expecting miracles but I was hoping my make up would at least last the whole work day. I saw this reviewed on Suzie's blog and pre-ordered it straight away, sold on her recommendation. I was ridiculously excited to try this - giddy almost - and I have every right to be.
It smooths out my skin like nothing else, it reminds me an awful lot of Benefit's PoreFessional in terms of consistency. It does feel slightly silicony but it doesn't bother me. Not only does it smooth, but it mattifies as well, any oily residue is gone instantly and oiliness is kept well at bay throughout the day. In terms of long wear - well, I am more then a little impressed. With my foundations it keeps it on from 5.45am well done 7pm in the evening - once it was still even there when I got home at 11pm with just a retouch of concealer and eyeliner. In terms of tinted moisturiser, it isn't quite as long lasting but it does still get me through the day.
I am thoroughly impressed by this and completely smitten. Costly, yes, however well worth it - I will be repurchasing the minute this runs out. It's a complete and utter make up saved. Mwah!
