Name: Make-Up Forever All Mat Base primer
Where : Online
I bought this while I was in Singapore, topping up on my Make-Up HD stuff. As you know, Make Up Forever is so hard to get here in the UK, there are only 2 shops that I know of. Tried this on this morning when I tried on my new foundation, Dr Perricone’s No Foundation Foundation.
I am very impressed with this – all throughout the day, my make stayed matte, right through to now when Ive just removed it. Whats even better – it absorbed all the oil on my face – I don’t think Ive ever not had to use at least one oil-absorbing wipe. Its a clear gel that glides on very easily – very little smell as well (for those among us who are sensitive to strong smelling products)
The only thing that would put some people off is the price, £33.50 for 30ml, which is actually more expensive than the foundation from Make Up Forever that I love – review here. It is so good though – especially if like me you have oily sensitive skin and love that matte look. The only thing I would warn about is that to be careful what type of moisturizers you use underneath this primer – some moisturizers (heavy ones) I used reacted with the gel base of the primer and ended up morphing into little ‘balls’ on my face – so be careful and look out for the little balls on your face after using the primer! I used a very light-weight moisturizer and it worked fine.
I would highly recommend this – and I wouldn’t recommend something so highly if I really didn’t feel so strongly about it, especially as its not cheap. Bravo Make-Up For Ever All Mat Base! You get my vote for sure.
