Hello Guys! Quick intro since I've been away from this blog for soooo long, I've gone makeup crazy over the past couple of months and got a "few" items to include in my collection. I've had several quick reviews over my Instagram account (@kmcunanan), and hopefully, I'll be able to do better reviews over this blog.
Enough intro and more writing! First stop is primer. I've never been big on primers to be honest. The only face primer that I've tried is Benefit's Porefessional. However, due to long hours in the office (~10 hours) I needed something to make my makeup last longer. So trusting my favorite beauty guru, Sharon Farrell, I bought the Max Factor Facefinity All Day Primer. Video of her favorite primers here.
First thing that I would like to comment on is, even if this is supposed to be a drugstore product, it is still quite expensive. I think it retails for 995 pesos for a 30 ml and I bought it from the beauty section of SM Makati. Packaging is quite nice. It comes with in glass bottle with a pump that locks when rotated.
The actual product is white, although it did not have any effect in terms of color on my face. It is pretty easy to apply; I just use my fingers to work it in. I use about 1 and a half pumps to cover my entire face with this primer. It also has SPF 20. That's a huge plus! I still have to test though if it will cause any flashback.
I've been using this primer for about two weeks now and I can say I am really impressed. Performance is true to it's name. My makeup did last all through my long work days and it did not budge. Although I can't say that it mattifies the face that much and prevents oiliness. My tzone will still get oily though I noticed that it will take a much longer time for the oil to show up and I feel like blotting already as compared to not applying any primer on this area at all. All in all, it's still a pretty good product and worth trying out.
What other primers should you think I try out? Please leave a comment below :)
