Garnier Perfect Blur Primer
I’ve adopted Garnier as one of my high street favorites. Their affordable skin care selection has never failed to impress me and their most recent hydrating Moisture Match in Goodbye Dry is my most raved about product. Try it!
But now Garnier have produced this little Photoshop ‘smart blur’ beauty in a tube. I have to admit I did get a little giddy when I first saw it sitting on the shelves and I may or may not have let out a ‘must have this’ squeal. But knowing Garnier have never let me down I snatched it up without looking at the price tag and headed to the tills. *Sings* I put a spell on youuuuuu, now your mine.
Although I’ve had major improvements with my skin from their recent moisturising product I needed a little help to hide my open pores, imperfections and slight shine around my t-zone. And the Garnier Perfect Blur sounded just what I needed to real life Photoshop my skin.
The product itself is of thick consistency with a light mousse feel. When applying the product with my fingers it glides across my face like smooth silk and a small pea sized amount surprisingly went far. Without even applying my foundation yet I noticed that scarring and imperfections where filled in and the primer gave my skin tone an overall even look as though I’d sparsely applied a tinted moisturiser.
When applying my foundation I noticed that the buffing brush smoothed over my face a lot easier as though someone had stuck teeny tiny roller skates on the ends of each bristle (strange image huh?). But the results gave my foundation, concealer and blusher a velvet smooth smooth finish by hiding my open pores, any scarring and I was left with a matt look airbrush finish that lasted. I also found that I used a lot less foundation because half the job was done before hand using the primer which left my face feeling a lot lighter and my foundation looking fresh for the whole day.
I would highly recommend snatching up this primer next time you’re around the Garnier skin care section. The price is a little more than I thought it would be at £12.99 but compared to other popular primer’s its darn cheap and you get a whole load of product even though you only need the smallest amount to get the greatest results!
