Too Faced Primed & Poreless Review
This is a beautifully silky, smooth, silicone face primer. It claims to be pore-filling, and I do believe that it does just that. It is skin smoothing, and creates a wonderful base for the rest of my makeup.
Here are some details:
- available at Sephora, Ulta, and toofaced.com
- $30 for 1 oz (or you can get the smaller size that I have: $15 for .5 oz)
Here is what Too Faced says about their product:
Our one-of-a-kind makeup primer was scientifically formulated to wear under bronzers and foundation powders or alone to achieve the look of flawless skin without makeup. Vitamins A & C, Mulberry Extract and a powerful dose of Retinol virtually banish pores while tired skin is left hydrated, firmer, and detoxified. Primed & Poreless creates the perfect canvas to allow powders, bronzers and foundations to airbrush onto the skin seamlessly and perfectly blended. Skin appears brighter, fresher and younger. Color stays true and in place all day.
I have the deluxe sample size, which actually does contain a generous amount of product. I love when higher end companies offer their products in deluxe samples so we can try them without committing to the price of a full-size product.
I really like this primer. It does fill in my pores (which aren’t large, or a major problem for me… just so you know) and makes my skin feel so soft. I love how my foundation application is so seamless when I use this primer beforehand. I also notice that my makeup does last longer when I wear this, compared to when I apply my foundation to bare skin.
The product looks like a nude shade when I first squeeze it from the bottle, but sheers out completely upon application and blending into the skin. I don’t notice any sort of tint to it after I’ve blended it onto my face.
I would not wear this alone, as it does not provide any coverage. You certainly can wear it alone, as it suggests on the package of the product.
I would definitely recommend this product! I have normal to combination skin, and it’s much drier this time of year. I did not notice this primer drying my skin out or clinging to any patches. I’m assuming that a light application would work well for oily skin as well, but I cannot speak from personal experience.
There are several primers that I am hoping to try, but after all is said and done, I will totally consider purchasing this in the full size.
What do you look for in a primer? Do you have a favorite??
