Hitting the Hard Candy beat again lovies. Today I have some Hard Candy Sheer Envy Primer to review for you.
Jump for it.
Silicon lovers rejoice as Hard Candy Sheer Envy Primer is a great alternative to your regular primer of choices such as Smashbox Photofinish.
Here’s the deal.
I hate silicon primers so I didn’t like this at all. Absolutely no love here for this primer however I will say that for a silicon primer it’s very good formula wise and anyone who likes such primers will readily enjoy this for both the quality and the price.
The primer has a heavy silicon base but feels very silky, very smooth. It applies and absorbs fairly easily, gliding across the face and creating a smooth, matte finish. The primer has a powder-like dry down almost as soon as it comes into contact with your skin so it should do very well for those who are oily. It’s texture allows for it to sit above the skin creating a smoother appearance if you happen to have larger pores.
For me it’s a no go simply because I hate the way silicon primers feel on my face. They feel greasy somehow and mask-like. This was no exception to the fact and honestly if you simply abhor (I know I do) Smashbox Photofinish I’d avoid this at all costs.
If you’re a lover of silicon primers and you’re wanting to snag a good one on the cheap I highly suggest checking out Hard Candy Sheer Envy Primer. With an $8 price tag this could possibly turn into a huge savings in your primer world.
As for this Muse she’ll stick to her Korres Primer thank you very much!
