I am really impressed with this primer because it covers my pores, it makes my makeup last longer (up to 12 hours) and it is not expensive. The only problem for me is that it is very hard for me to find it on stock so I sometimes have to buy it online, but aside from that, this primer is perfect. I have acne prone skin and it does not make me break out. I love this primer!!
I like this product. This is the first Rimmel product I've ever purchased/tried. The packaging is fine. The product is creamy like lotion and blends really well. A little goes a long way, so don't use too much. This primer feels like a moisturizer. Compared to Avon Magix (primer), Rimmel PPP 02 doesn't leave a white pastey film on your face; Rimmel blends into the skin like a moisturizer. Avon Magix had my skin looking ashey prior to putting on my foundation. Rimmel didn't make my skin feel heavy and after putting on the foundation my skin looked flawless. Throughout the day my skin still looked flawless with no oil build-up. I will definitely purchase again. I like Avon but if I don't have to purchase an item online and it's readily available at local drugstores it is a plus. I didn't give Rimmel a 5 rating due to it not having SPF.
i like this, it think it really smooths your skin and it does make foundation last longer xxx
I LOOOOOOOVE this stuff!!! Whenever I break out, it smoothes it like there's no tomorrow! Keeps my foundation on all day. Very silky. Will definitely buy again! (Get shade 002)
This primer does it's job well, it helps my foundation stay on all day, keeps my skin matte and smells gorgeous! I can even get away with wearing this without any foundation, it makes my skin feel smooth and reduces redness. Definitely would recommend this product to anyone struggling to find a good primer :)
I think I found my HG primer. I love this. My skin doesn't feel greasy when I put it on, which is important to me. It instantly makes my skin soft, smooth, and ready for makeup. It is a white gel like consistency and applies with no color.
It helps smooth out any flaky areas and allows my makeup to hold up all day.
I really Love this primer, Its so cute and cheap, I think where i bought it was about $4. When i apply this, My face feels SO smooth, I love it. I also got 001, but have yet to try it.
Compared to the 001 Primer that Rimmel also markets, 002 is a milky white color with a liquid-gel consistency (001 is of the same texture, but is a peach-tan shade that fades into a sheer, soft nude--nothing radical). I JUST bought this primer to be precise, and pitched the two side to side on both of the backsides of my hands.
Both do great at smoothing lines and pores, by the way--although I'm 19 I have the cracks and wrinkles of a 40-year old on my hands and feet--001 does a bit better with evening out skintone. 002 Pro feels softer to the touch, a tad bit more moist and hydrating, like as if you've been soaking in lotion overnight to and woke up to baby-soft skin. 001 looks more natural in terms with blending with the skin texture and being "matte".
That's my two cents so far in comparing the two to each other. I bought the 002 Pro Primer because I generally reach out for the translucent primers rather than the tinted ones which can alter the look/shade of my foundation--and having Rimmel 50% at my local Walgreens, paying an extra 60 cents isn't terrible (in fact, it's pretty terrific). Asides from that I haven't actually tested the primer with my BB cream, which wears beautifully even without primer--but I do have BAD (and I mean BAD!) acne scarring which I hope the primer will settle down flat so I can at least fake having perfectly smooth skin.
This primer definitely looks promising.
I am 62 years old and have dry skin. Finding makeup that doesn't make me look older is pretty difficult as much of it is too dry. For this reason I use plenty of moisturizer. That doesn't work with all foundations. No matter what moisturizer I use, this primer goes on beautifully and allows makeup to appear light and smooth. I literlally look younger when I use it. What is not to like about that? This little makeup friend is the best! I would buy it again and again!
BEST PRIMER EVER!!! I have used so many primers, and spent so much money on high-ends. I have to say that this is the best primer I have ever found. I needed a primer quickly, and refused to repurchase my MAC primer, so I decided to try this drugstore primer. WOW! My makeup stays ALL day! Alone, my foundation separates and makes me look oily, and rubs off easily. But using the Rimmel primer 002, my makeup stays, and still looks BEAUTIFUL at the end of a long day! If youre debating getting this, take this as a sign. GO TRY IT OUT.
