since primers became a 'thing' in the beauty world, i've tried out a fair few, but i've never really found that any of them have made a difference in making my makeup last any longer on my face than normal so i sort of gave up with them. but recently i heard a fair few things about this new release from Max Factor - their Facefinity All Day Primer. This is supposedly the secret ingredient in their best-selling All Day Flawless foundation that makes it last all day, and they've taken it out and made it into a free-standing primer, and let me tell you that this is the only primer that has ever worked for me.
now i've started work, early mornings are routine and i'm applying my makeup at around 6.30am and i was finding that my foundation was almost gone by the time lunchtime came around and my makeup just looked terrible. there was barely any trace of it left by the time it came to taking it off at night and in all honesty it was getting me down quite a bit. and this little beauty has definitely been a game changer for me. my makeup is lasting for the whole working day and there's actually makeup left on my face at the end of the day to remove. it creates a flawless base for my foundation and honestly helps my makeup stick around all day, and it only needs the odd touch-up if i'm then going out in the evening. it's a white creamy formula which is super blendable and sinks into the skin leaving it feeling fairly soft and silky, and one pump gives enough product to cover your whole face, so this bottle will definitely be lasting me a long while, too! it's also left me wanting to try the All Day Flawless Foundation too, as they sound like a pretty long-lasting duo.
you can pick up the Max Factor Facefinity All Day Primer in Boots or Superdrug for £10.99
