Although I don’t use primers every time I do my makeup, from time to time I like to try a new one. The latest addition to my collection (of makeup not primers) is by Hourglass.

I’d say the main reason I bought it is because I recently started obsessing over the pores on my forehead. I think they’re showing more than they used to, so I was hoping this primer would help them ‘disappear’. I was a bit disappointed, not noticing a huge difference when I use it.

I do like how it applies to the skin, how lightweight it feels, and how easily foundations apply on top of it, but I’m not impressed at all. Does it make my makeup last longer? Meh, I’m not even sure, but I don’t typically have issues like that.

It has a SPF 15 protection which is always nice, and again it feels very nice on the skin, but that’s not a product I’d repurchase. It’s not a product that made me fall in love with primers.

Have you tried this one? Do you have a primer you swear by?
