NYC Perfecting Primer

So I really needed a Primer in my life, and being a student I don't have a lot of money so I opted for New York Colour's Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer. I got this baby from Superdrug for about £3.50 (if that).

The packaging is lovely and simple, black and white. Nothing too fancy but the bottle is quite small (although bigger than the collection 2000 and MUA primer).

I wasn't really sure what to expect as I've never used a Primer before, but my makeup is awful at staying on my face more than an hour, so I thought I'd give it ago! When I first applied the Primer it came out looking like a moisturiser, very white and thick. Once applied to the face the white liquid becomes slightly shiny and still very thick on the face which I wasn't expecting, but it soon dried and felt a lot more light-weight. 

The Primer is great, it does what it says and it keeps my makeup on for a good 6 or 7 hours. I actually come home from Uni still looking nice - which is a great change! So yes I would definitely recommend this product - especially for the price!

  1. Unfortunately it seems to have parabens in it, so it's an absolute no-no... x

  2. I'm completely converted to primer now, I'd never even heard of them until I started blogging but am so glad I did because makeup stays on for so much longer now. Parabens don't bother me at all, if a product is available for the general public then it's safe enough as far as I'm concerned lol. I haven't tried this one before, will keep an eye out for it x
