I have a confession: I'm consistently afraid of makeup primers. Because my skin is so crazy combination, I have to really be careful about putting oily products in my t-zone & dry products on my cheeks/under eye area. LAME. I love makeup primers, but I stayed away from them when they first came out I tried a MAC version & my face broke out like mad. Since then, I'm timid but willing. Enter, Reviva Labs & their beautifying creation.
Apply over moisturizer or instead of
moisturizer. Lines fill in, pores are concealed, excess oil is
controlled. Skin so touchable, so silky smooth, you will find it hard to
What I say: For the last few months, I've been addicted to my primers in general from sprays, to bases, to eyeshadow bases. In fact, I have a few more to review ;) But for now, let's focus on the magic that is the Reviva Labs Makeup Primer. This applies like liquid velvet which totally makes me want to snuggle with my own face. I use this over moisturizer (because I need it & for spf!) & it feels incredibly lightweight.
This product definitely lives up to its claims, which I'm finding quite rare these days! It helps conceal (not remove, CONCEAL!) my pores, helps reduce the appearance of my under eye lines, & actively prolongs my foundation wear. Sometimes, I don't want to go full coverage (especially on a good skin day, I work hard for those!) but my minimal coverage foundations just don't make it to the finish line with me. They fade off & even begin to look funky, especially on my dry spots.
Price: You get 1 oz of product for $19.50 on the Reviva website & while that may look pricy, its not. No really, it isn't. I use the tiniest bit of this. No, do not use a full pump. Ever. Unless its for your whole body which I don't recommend as that's a bit strange.
What are some turn offs regarding makeup primer to you? What do you think of this one? Have you tried any other Reviva Labs products?
