I recently purchased this makeup primer I like the smell of it, I'm not sure how to describe it but it just smells yummy (to me) ahaha. I have the 001 but when I put it on my face it just glides on smoothly and it does help make my makup stay on for a while.
I went out to the club one night and my makeup stayed on for the whole time, I danced and sweated a lot..but it still was in place, which I liked.
But the only thing I don't like about this primer is it makes me more oily in my "T" zone area and around my nose and chin area. I'm not sure if its just the makeup I use (I'm looking for a better foundation) but its difficult because I'm not sure what to look for aha.
But other than that this product works well and I would definetly buy it again. Plus its not alot of money I bought mine for like $5.00 I think and it lasts for a long time!
I first used this product a few years ago. After I put it on and let it set it left my face a odd ashy/white color and made my mineral foundation look to light. I stuck it in the back of my make-up box and didn't touch it for years. I ran out of make-up primer one day and decided to give this product another try. I use a nickel-size amount and put it on my face after moisturizer and left if for a minute then I put on my L'Oreal True Match foundation and it worked well. My face still became a bit oily but not as quickly as before (and I work in a hot kitchen, so some oiliness is to be expected) but this product gave me a few extra hours before I had to reapply again. It's not the best product out there, but it does its job.
Well, it's cheap and comes in a tube. That is where the pros for this product end, unfortunately. As others have mentioned, it's orange. I tried it under loose mineral makeup as well as liquid foundation to no avail. That orange was still there even under full coverage makeup, and I'm not even pale. My super oily skin was not mattified. In fact, it became oilier than usual! My pores? It didn't nothing for them except possibly clog them up, since I had a few pimples after using it. Please save your money and put it towards something that might actually work.
I ended up dropping this tube behind my vanity and didn't even notice it was gone until my chihuahua found it and chewed it up. No great loss.
This product did absolutely nothing for my oily skin. Not only did it not mattifying my skin, but it did not help my makeup stay on longer,either. This has a nice consistency, but is a strange dark orange color. I think Rimmel tried to create a product similar to Dr. Brandt's Pores No More.-- But they failed miserably! It actually seemed as though the first areas of foundation to wear off were the ones I had applied this primer to. Do not waste your money!
This was the first primer I ever purchased, a while back. I wasn't surprised that it came in one color, but when I took it home and tried it, I was definitely surprised that it was bright orange. It applies more sheer, but if you are fair skinned, it will more than likely change your foundation's color. If you are looking for an inexpensive primer, I SWEAR by Monistat's Chafing Relief Powder Gel. It is the same, if not cheaper, price than this primer, and it is equally comparable to Smashbox Photo Finish.
This is the first primer I've tried, and I was disappointed when I opened this product at home and discovered it was bright orange. The product color disappears and actually evens out my skin tone a bit, so I apply less foundation, but only if I apply just the right amount. Too much and the color cuts through my makeup and looks ridiculous, and I hate spending extra time applying little by little so I don't look like an Oompa Loompa. I will definitely be finding a clear primer for my next purchase.
I'm prone to breakouts from makeup, but this doesn't seem to aggravate my skin like other acne-prone reviewers. It diminishes the look of the pores on my cheeks and nose, gives my skin a satiny feel that helps my concealer and foundation glide on smoothly, and seems to cut down on shine during the day. You get more for the price than other drugstore brands I've seen...if only it wasn't orange!
This was my very first primer that I've ever bought. I love how it gives me a very smooth finish prior to applying my foundation and makes my makeup last longer. However, I hate the fact that this primer is orange. Since I have very fair skin, it shows up even and interferes with the color of my foundation. I have a warm undertone and makes it look like I'm applying a foundation with the wrong color although my foundation matches my skin tone without the primer. I wish they could've just made the color white or translucent since I love the finish and the staying power.
I just finished up a tube of the Rimmel Fix and Perfect Foundation Primer, so here's my 2 cents. I have medium, oily/combination skin that's sensitve & acne-prone. I put this on after I moisturize my skin & let it sit for couple of minutes before I put on my foundation. I don't use same foundation everyday & I use both powder & liquid formulation. This product seems to prime my face well for different foundation formulation & makes it last longer. As most of you are already aware, this primer does have apricot-y, orange-y color straight out of the tube, but it does disappear once applied. (Now having said that, I can't speak for ladies with really fair complexion.) When Rimmel first put this primer out on the market, this was one of the very few if not only drugstore foundation primer available. That has all changed recently as companies like L'oreal & Revlon offers them & has gotten popular amongst us, beauty addicts. Personally, I haven't tried any other drugstore foundation primers so I can't really compare. However, I used to use Laura Mercier foundation primer & I actually prefer Rimmel over Laura Mercier. One thing to keep in mind when using this primer is that little goes a long way, so don't over do it. It's easy to over apply primers because it disappears, but if you apply too much it will make your skin oilier. This product is inexpensive & readily available, so give it try if you haven't already. I'd recommend it & will most definitely repurchase it for myself. You can often find it on sale or double packaged w/ a Rimmel foundation so you can get a good deal on it if you keep your eyes open. Happy trying!
This is the first time ever I've tried a primer. I absolutely love the price and see the difference that this primer has made on my foundation compared to putting foundation on bare skin. It totally prevents my foundation from moving and lengthens out my time before I have to blot and touch up with powder. I've been using it for about a week now and has not caused any breakouts. The orange tinge blends right into my skin. But then again I have a tan complexion. I will definatley repurchase again!
D: this should fall down a well the orange left my red cheeks even redder that usual it didnt make my pores look any bigger nor did help my makeup stay on longer
