Review: Studio Gear Prime Objective Perfecting Face Primer
07 Dec 2016
When I first started applying makeup, I didn’t even know makeup primers existed. And honestly, I was never really satisfied with how my foundation look (which was just powder back then), but I wasn’t quite sure what to do about it. Until I discovered primers. A primer really does make your makeup look better and also extends the wear it!
Once I started applying a primer before my powder, I never looked back. 😀 Primers don’t just go well with powders, also liquid foundation benefit from having a ‘base’ to sit on. Just think of it as painting a wall: you always apply a primer first and then the actual paint, right?
Along the years I’ve tried many, many primers to help my makeup stay on longer and are mattifying and make my pores appear smaller. My main concern with trying a new primer is that I’m afraid it will break me out, knowing I have sensitive skin. I have come to find that silicone primers work best for me. I have very enlarged pores on my cheeks and silicone primers seem to cover them the best.
Recently, I started using one by Studio Gear Cosmetics (I received a press sample a while back), called the Prime Objective Perfecting Face Primer. This is a silicone based face primer that visually diminishes imperfections in the surface texture of the skin. It also contains retinol that can help support cell turnover and reduce the appearance if fine lines and wrinkles, as well as a milk protein complex that can help to balance and protect the skin against environmental stresses.
Cycolopentasiloxane, Dimethicone crosspolymer, Cyclotetrasiloxane, Phenyl trimethicone, Silica, Tocopheryl acetate, Lactose, Milk proteim, Bifida ferment lysate, Mica, Titanium dioxide (CI 77891), Retinol, Carbomer, Butylene glycol, Tocopherol, Acacia Senegal gum, Propylene glycol alginate, Phenoxyethanol.
Despite my sensitive skin I’ve had no issues with this primer. After washing my face and applying my moisturizer, I slap on a thin layer. It goes on really smooth and doesn’t leave my face feeling oily. Then I continue with my regular makeup routine. It helps my foundation stay on longer and my cheeks looking much smoother than that they really are. I don’t know why I haven’t heard that many people talking about this primer…it’s a good one, even if you have oily skin like I do!
