Primers are one of my least favorite makeup items to buy. They are usually more expensive and I haven’t really found many that live up to my expectations, but when I discovered this two from The Ordinary all that changed.
“This formula uses advanced adaptive silicones to act as a matte, hydrating, blurring primer for makeup that looks higher in definition and adheres for longer. The formula can also be used alone as a non-greasy hydrator that reduces the looks of pores and of imperfections.”
This works great for a matte finish that is a bit more high impact. It creates a barrier between your skin are your foundation with help give a more flawless finish.
I do have one problem with this primer and that is that it is not great for dry skin, it has a tendency to make to make any dry skin look more pronounced. So think this would be a great primer for someone with oily skin, as it is mattifying.
“This new generation of primer is a lightweight serum-like formula that increases the spreadability of subsequent complexion makeup to help avoid the unnatural and uneven accumulation of pigments especially around the eyes and on dry skin. The formula also acts as a light, non-oily surface hydrator for a natural dewy look.”
This primer is perfect for spring, it’s lightweight and refreshing, it sinks into your skin and feels silky smooth.
his one is definitely my favorite of the two, it works so well for a dewy summery makeup and it feels light and comfortable on. I’m starting to run low so I really need to repurchase it. I ordered one for my sister but forgot to get another one for me.
Both of these are really good primers and I would highly recommend either of them. However, I don’t think they are both compatible for all skin types, so you do have to be aware of that and decide which is best for you. Like I said the Fluid Primer is my favorite and it’s going to be a staple in my spring and summer makeup routine.
What do you think of these primers?
