Hi everyone! I hope you are having an amazing week! I have been testing out lots of fun spring makeup and skincare, and of course, having a blast doing it!
Some of my favorite new products are the new primers from Beautyblender. I recently reviewed the Beautyblender Bounce Foundation here, and really enjoy it. The Beautyblender Pre-Touch Primer Collection includes 3 perfecting primers to prep and balance skin so your makeup lasts way longer and looks even better.
Here is info on the primers:
The Leveler Pore Minimizing Primer — Suitable for Normal to Oily Skin
Lightweight texture. Contains niacinamide and manuka honey to help blur the appearance of redness and witch hazel to help minimize pore size. This primer comes in 2 skin-loving tints so you’ll never get a chalky finish. I have it in Light-Medium and it is also comes in Tan-Deep.
Opal Essence Serum Primer — Suitable for Normal to Dry Skin
Adds radiance and moisture. Unique nourishing, triple transforming texture: goes from a gel to an oil to cream. Powerful blend of fermented botanical extracts helps soothe and brighten skin.
Selfie Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 38, Dry Oil Primer — Suitable for All Skin Types
A sunscreen that actually works with makeup. Totally invisible, quick-absorbing dry oil helps both protect and prep skin with no residue. Multi-spectrum protection from UVA, UVB and HEV (high energy visible) light to help fend off damage from both the sun and your tech devices.
The swatches are the Selfie Shield, Opal Essence and the Leveler. I have tested out all three. I have combination skin. I do like pore-filling primers, and glowy ones, too!
I was surprised that the Selfie Shield is an oil. I’ve never tried an SPF primer oil before. I put a lot on in the photo above, but it absorbs in the skin really quickly and does not feel oily at all. I have layered other primers on top of it, or just used it alone with foundation. Makeup applies nicely over it.
The Opal Essence primer is hydrating and a bit glowy. I’m not one for the super dewy look, but this is a subtle glow that I really like. It gives foundation and extra bit of dewiness and also looks nice on it’s own.
The Leveler is great for those with large pores and oiler skin types. It can be worn all over the face or only in the t-zone. It has a light texture and just a bit of a tint to it. Worn alone, it gives the skin a soft matte finish. And it helps foundation stay matte and flawless all day, too!
None of these really have a scent, which I really like. I enjoy these for different makeup looks and finishes. Plus, they can be combined with the Leveler in the t-zone and Opal Essence on the outer part of the face. They all work well with the few different foundations I have tried them with.
