Hello babs! Been struggling to stick to the days I post the last couple of weeks but hopefully I can get back into it soon. Today is going to be a primer review and I thought I’d share this one as some of you may not know that Asda (George) in fact have their own makeup products. I picked this one up in my local Asda for £3.50, which for a primer I think is not bad at all. Being honest… I was a little sceptical about this to begin with as I’ve not heard many people talk about their products but when I saw it I knew I had to try it out and share with you all…
Side note: This primer comes with 30ml of product in it.
The packaging for this primer is very basic so if you’re someone who buys a product by the influence of packaging then this one may not catch your eye. It comes in a white plastic squeezy tube with a white screw-on lid and has the name of the brand and product in purple lettering.
On the back of the product it states “Moisturising, non sticky base coverage. Holds makeup in place”. This product has no scent to it so if you’re someone who is sensitive to scented products then this one will not be a problem! As the product doesn’t state to be clear or any other colour I was not sure what to expect… when I squeezed it out onto my fingers I noticed its a peachy cream sort of shade but when I applied it to the face it did not stay this colour, in fact it blended out into my skin tone. I also noticed that this product isn’t sticky and is actually quite smooth to apply so if you’re someone who likes a tacky primer then this will not be good for you! Anyway, as it was trying to blend it into my skin I noticed that it was picking up on my dry patches a lot so I’m not sure it was very moisturising for me… maybe next time I need to try and apply it after I have creamed my face to see if that helps it not to cling to the dryness. I do feel like this filled in some of my pores, I don’t have a lot but it made it look like around my nose was blurred which I liked! Overall, my foundation did apply alright over this product it just made the end result look a little dry… not sure if it will be the same with everyone.
This is not one of the best primers I have tried in my collection so far. I definitely need to play around with it some more and see how it goes but from my first impression… I’m not a huge fan. This did a good job of keeping my foundation on I must admit but it just made my face look quite dry which I don’t like as I’m quite dry anyway without makeup on (but maybe that’s because I didn’t moisturise before putting it on). I do recommend giving it a try to see if it works for you and for £3.50 it’s not bad… it’s just not my personal favourite. From trying this primer though I definitely want to try out more from the Asda (George) range to see how the other products work on my skin. If you decide to try it out then let me know how you get on… 🙂
Thanks for reading!
See you in my next post…
