Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer Review & Swatches

Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer

Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer is being added to the permanent line of Rimmel Cosmetics at drugstores this Spring. Lasting Finish Primer has already been released in the UK but this is the first time we’re seeing it here in the US so if you happen to be in the UK this might be old news to you!

I’m seeing a lot of creamy, hydrating primers this Spring which is great because my drier skin appreciates the extra moisture. I don’t really love silicone-based primers like Smashbox Photo Finish so these are perfect for me! According to Rimmel it increases the wear of foundation for up to eight hours after use!

Let’s take a look at Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer!

Wet n Wild Coverall Primer Review & Swatches

Wet n Wild Prep & Prime set

Wet n Wild Coverall Primer is a new Spring 2015 release that comes packaged in the Wet n Wild Prep & Prime Set ($4.99). No worries it’s actually sold as an individual product but it looks like Wet n Wild packaged it up with a Cover All Correcting Palette for a limited time to get people excited about it.

The set itself is a nice deal since the Wet n Wild Coverall Primer is marked as $4.99 all its own. Ouch! Someone’s gotta pay Fergie’s bills huh? $5 is a little high for Wet n Wild but honestly, you can always score a deal at the drugstore so I imagine you’ll never pay that amount anyway. Plus, even if you did, this is a great primer and worth your fiver.

Take a look!

Banila Co Prime Primer Review & Swatches

Banila Co Prime Primer

Banila Co Prime Primer Classic is a silicone facial primer that recently came in my Memebox Banila Co Superbox. It couldn’t come at a better time since the one I currently have is nearing an end. I mostly rely on Revlon PhotoReady Perfecting Primer or Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector but when I want a more polished looks I tend to use Banila Co Prime Primer.

I have drier skin so I prefer silicone-free primers as they tend to be more hydrating for me and also silicone primers just pill on my skin or they feel itchy. But I have a few exceptions and Prime Primer is one.

Revlon Photoready Prime + Anti Shine Review

Revlon Photoready Prime Anti Shine

Revlon Photoready Prime + Anti Shine Balm is a clear, transparent mattifying balm that’s a lot like the recently introduced Covergirl Tru Magic Skin Perfector Mattifier.

Revlon Photoready Prime + Anti Shine is marketed as a product you can use alone to minimize the appearance of pores for a smooth, natural finish on skin or as a primer, applied to skin prior to makeup. Or you can use like Mally Face Defender and applied it over your makeup to blur pores, minimize shine and oil, and create a smooth, soft finish on skin.

I recently purchased this at my local Bed, Bath, and Beyond and it should start popping up at other mass drugstores soon with a bigger push for Spring 2015 I imagine.

Let’s take a look!
