Rimmel Fix & Perfect Primer

Posted on June 15, 2010


I am sure we all have those moments, when we itch our nose or wipe off the crumbs from our lunch of our face, and look down at our hands and notice the disgusting Tuna on your fingers, but also the oils from your face. Gross. But I have found something that can control all this.

A primer! And not just any primer, this is a DRUGSTORE primer. It is very comparable to the Smashbox Photofinish Primer Light. The only difference that I see is that the Fix & Perfect has an  orange tint to it. So for those fair girls (NW/NC 20 and below) I would use caution with this or if not, you will end up looking like a straight up Oompa Loompa. Now on to the Review!

This primer is perfect for Oily girls with large pores. It really does fill in your lines and almost creates this soft focus effect on your face. I have small pore around my nose area, and I also have a little bit of pits/acne scarring and this stuff really does fill it in. It also keeps my skin looking Matte for atleast 5 hours, before I see the oils beginning to show up. Its also great for those days when you do not want to wear foundation, but still have nice looking skin. I just slather some of this stuff on and put a bit of press powder and top and voila, you got matte, poreless looking skin for the day.

This is also a silicone based primer, so those who have reactions to this may want to stay away. It also contains a light citrus scent that is undetectable ones it is one the face.

See how it fills in the lines on my hand??
