If there’s one product every woman should have in her makeup bag, then it’s a great primer. Not only do primers help to keep makeup in place all day long without slipping, but they aid application and provide a flawless canvas from which to start. Although a lot of primers have thick, creamy or velvety gel textures, Max Factor’s new Face Finity All Day Primer is super lightweight and almost invisible to the touch. It’s apparently the ‘secret ingredient’ in their best selling Face Finity All Day Flawless Foundation, now available as a product in its own right. A little of this applied under foundation will help to prime, mattify and hold your flawless beauty look in place for longer.
One pump of this is enough to cover the face entirely, working particularly around the nose and chin areas where our skin becomes shiny. Containing ‘micro correctors’ to banish excess oils, the formula also includes SPF20 and instantly mattifies skin, leaving a smooth base on which to apply foundation. The best products, in my opinion, are the ones that are super easy to use and don’t even require much thought; this is definitely one of those. It doesn’t require a huge amount of buffing, it doesn’t leave an uncomfortable film on the skin and it doesn’t take an age to apply perfectly. If you’re in the market for a simple primer that just helps your makeup sit a little better, while lasting a little longer, then this is a fab budget buy that won’t disappoint.
The MaxFactor Face Finity All Day Primer is available in Boots priced £10.99
