Well I'm sitting on my bed with my netbook and havn't been able to think straight all day but I really want to write on my blog and tell you about a lovely new product I got sent by Rimmel because it's a new must-have that should be in every make-up junkie's kit!
It's the new Rimmel fix and perfect primer! I know I did an older post about Maybelline's primer and in no way am I saying it's not good because it is but this (Rimmel's) primer has a different texture and I wanted to write about it!! :)
|Fix and Perfect primer.|
Let me start by saying I didn't think it would be as good as it is...when I first put it on my skin it was like I was wearing moisturiser but the after effect is what's best! Letting it sink into my skin for a few minutes I loved how soft and smooth it made my skin feel...it didn't feel greasy but being used to Maybelline's primer it felt a lot lighter hence why it has more of a moisturiser feel to it.
I put on my foundation and it blended wonderfully....my foundation looked smooth and even with a newfound glow/healthiness look to my face! I was happy and surprised at how good this primer was.
It lasted the whole day and I have to say it did keep my face matte but around my nose and chin there was a little bit of shine....nothing a bit of powder or shine paper can't handle but it didn't keep my face 100% shine free.
Between the two primers I have blogged about I can't decide which I prefer only because they are so different from each other.
I'm going to draw up a little (mini) bulletpoint thing for each one.
- Feels light like a moisturiser.
- Sinks into the skin - leaving it smooth.
- Keeps Make-up in place.
- Feels light but heavier than moisturiser.
- Sinks into the skin but you can still feel a smooth silk feeling.
- Keeps make-up in place
There's not much difference between the two but with Maybelline's primer you can feel a silkiness on the skin almost like a very thin barrier on the skin which is great as primers are used to protect your skin from Make-up and help it stay put.
Rimmel's primer sinks into the skin but leaves it feeling ever so smooth meaning your make-up blends with no effort.
I'd recommend Rimmel's primer with no hesitation at all and I do think I'll be buying this once it runs out as I like how it makes my skin feel bright and smooth.
My mama prefers Maybelline's primer only because she can feel a different type of smoothness to her skin which she prefers and that's fine. Different people, different preferences! :)
I've mentioned above haha....I think it looks boring, nothing really catches my eye so I wouldn't look twice at it but as people say don't judge a book by it's cover! :)

I'm going to mark this an 8/10. It feels lovely on the skin and keeps make-up in it's place but shine does start showing around the nose and chin area from around mid-day. If you're a girl on the go take some powder with you or blotting paper just for little touch-ups throughout the day.
You can buy this from Boots for £6.99.
