September’s almost here and sadly for me that means my caramel colored primer has no place in the world until next summer. This means I needed to grab a new primer; but honestly – I’ve been through so many and haven’t quite been able to find one that’s perfect for my oily skin. Thankfully for me one of the sales associates at Sephora told me to give one of Urban Decay’s new(er) complexion primers a whirl…we’re all well aware that Urban Decay has been one of the big authorities in color cosmetics (specifically color cosmetics for the eyes), but with the release of their new Naked Skin foundation and these complexion primers I truly feel like Urban Decay is going to thrust themselves into the one stop shop spotlight; let me tell you why…
Urban Decay “Pore Perfecting” Primer
- Lightweight, non-greasy primer that helps oily skin keep makeup in place all day.
- Completely resurfaces the skin and hides the appearance of fines lines and enlarged pores.
- Creates a velvety canvas that really attributes to an airbrushed foundation look.
Final verdict – 5/5!
So I’ve made my way through a handful of different primers – all boasting fantastic reviews, but none were really able to keep my face shine-free for longer than an hour! Enter Urban Decay’s “pore perfecting” primer…a lightweight, creamy primer that completely resurfaces the skin and keeps my face shine free all day! I work under photography lights all day and before I worked this primer into my makeup routine I found myself having to touch up my makeup every 2 hours…now I don’t even have to sweat it! I don’t notice shine coming through until maybe 6 hours into my shift…that’s insane! Anybody with oily skin will really appreciate this product, but for someone with drier skin who’s looking for a matte finish this product will provide the same benefit…you have to check it out!
