Too Faced Primed & Poreless Oil Free Primer Review


Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pure Oil Free Primer - £24.00

I bought this primer last week because I've been wanting a good face primer for a while, but one that's going to keep my face matte all day and stop my makeup coming off and going patchy around my T-Zone area. I use the Rimmel Stay Matte Primer on a daily basis and it definitely helps to control my oil but it doesn't make my face smooth and cover my pores, which is something I want in a primer, particularly on special days.

So this primer is a gel formula, and the consistency is a little thick but it's not too hard to spread around the face, it makes your face feel super soft and smooth, but I feel a little slippery at first, my dipbrow was really really hard to put on at first as my eyebrows kept smudging all over the place, but I think you just have to leave the primer to set for a few minutes before you put on your foundation. I just applied my powder over my face when it was a bit slippery and then my brows were completely fine and went back to their budge proof self.

After using this primer a couple of times, I have noticed that my skin is getting a lot less oily than normal which is great, and I have noticed that my pores are not as obvious as they once were. I've only used two face primers in my time so I can't say whether it's the best or worst primer I've ever used, but I think I will be saving this for 'special days' and using my Rimmel Stay Matte primer on a normal/casual day.

I think the next primer I'm going to try out is the new L'oreal Infallible Mattifying one, as well as the foundation, so watch out for that review!

What's your favourite primer?

  1. Hi! Too bad I have rather dry skin and can’t use this type of primers, I always find them so silky and soft to the touch :) x Josune, Your Beauty Script

  7. I don't have a favorite primer. I wasn't a big fan of this Too Faced one, probably because my skin is dry, but I really want to try the hangover primer from Too Faced.
