Garnier Perfect Blur Primer
I ran out of my usual primer (Revlon Photoready) and fancied trying a new one as I wasn’t very impressed with my old one.
This is the new primer by Garnier – 5 Sec Perfect Blur. It is designed to smooth and perfect your skin by targeting wrinkles, discoloration, imperfections, shrinking pores and blocking shine. I wouldn’t go as far as to say it does all of that but I did notice a difference. The cream works by reflecting light and I think it does make lines and pores look less obvious.
I have read some bloggers raving about the ‘silky’ way it applies but I hate it, it’s so silcon-y. It feels like spreading grease on my face.
The main thing I look for in a primer is how well it helps to combat shine throughout the day. Buying this coincided with the crazy heatwave we are having in the UK so I don’t want to be too hasty with my assessment of it. I do find that my forehead and nose are a bit shiny by the time I get home, which means my primer hunt still continues. Is it too much to ask that a primer keeps my foundation in place all day? Am I *reaching* for the stars here? (name the film!)
