The other day I went shopping and the only things I bought that were makeup were primers and foundation from Boots. As I have only used them a few times I’m going to give my first impressions on them after I tried them.
L’OREAL INFAILLIBLE MATTIFYING PRIMER
This primer was £8.99, and it doesn’t look like you get that much in the tube from the outside because it is quite a small package. I don’t like this packaging because I think it is very boring.
When I first tried this out I was a bit concerned because the consistency was very runny and as I wanted it to be really matte and not oily because I have really oily skin. However when I put it on the primer felt so smooth on my skin and t went really matte. When I out the foundation on top it went a bit weird but that might have been the foundation. I would probably recommend this especially if you have oily skin because it controlled my oils but you can probably get better ones for cheaper.
FIT ME MAYBELLINE MATTE AND PORELESS
I had really wanted to try this foundation for so long and as it’s only £5.99 I thought I would buy it when I went out. I don’t like this packaging and I wish they sold it in it’s hard case thing here.
I choose the shade 105 because it seemed closest to my skin and when I tried it on my face it was honestly like the perfect match. It’s a good coverage and the consistency was right for my skin. It still blocked the oil and stayed on for a long time. However whilst I was putting it on it gathered at the top of my T- zone and I had to blend it out loads and loads.
I would recommend it to people with oily skin and large pores because of how it blocks them out. Especially because it is so cheap.
