This product was my first ever primer, brought not too long ago considering, but reading up on some beauty journalist’s blogs, websites and whatever it sounds like the first round of primers were completely pants so thankfully their comeback has packed some punch this time!
But for newbies; a primer is basically a cream you put on your skin, post-moisturiser and pre-foundation, to smooth the surface of your skin and to prolong your foundation.
This product, at £6.99 from Boots, seemed to do the job for me and I really noticed a difference when I applied it before foundation – my skin did look smoother, naturally and so I didn’t go without it, it firmly found its place in my make-up routine.
However, since I’ve tried a different primer (review soon – and it’s from a high-street brand!) I’ve found Rimmel’s formula is actually too thick in consistency and it feels a lot to put on, especially in the heat.
So, since my new discovery, I don’t think I’ll be going back to this particular Rimmel product and well, I’m considering chucking it! Sacrilege for such a self-confessed Rimmel fan, but sorry guys, there’s better ones out there for around the same price.
Plus, anyone know why it says ‘002’ on the front? Any reason? No?
