Review | Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer

Today I want to review on the Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer. I have been using this for the past month and thought it was time to share my experiences with this primer.




Firstly, the Primer comes out is a very pale pink, and is kind of the same consistency of a light moisturiser. When applied it makes my face so incredibly soft and silk like. I love they way it glides over my skin. It also reduces the appearance of my pores and makes my skin tone more even. It creates a matte base for your make-up which is great for those who have trouble with a shiny t-zone. Unfortunately, there is a downfall with this primer. It does make dry skin more prominent. I moisturise before I apply anything to my face, but once I have applied this primer the dryness on my nose seems to reappear, which equals flakey foundation, YUK! So if someone has extremely dry skin then I don't think this product would be suitable. I think this product as a stand alone product is great, alone without make-up it does make my skin look so much better. But the purpose I brought it for to be applied before make-up isn't as good as I would like it to be.

Secondly, we must discuss cost! This product RRP is £11.99, which as primers go its not much different to other similar ones on the market. I don't feel that this primer is worth the full £11.99 though, since showing up my dry skin on my nose does not help with applying my foundation!

Overall I think i would give this primer 5/10. It is a lovely consistency but it is so hit and miss with my skin type its really unfortunate that something that could have been great ends up being mediocre.

I hope that this gives you some insight into this primer.

Keep sparkling xoxo
