Some people think primers are a waste but I have dry skin and I adore them. They give me that one extra layer of potential success for a flush, smooth finish and I often spend more on primers than I do foundations! My current go to combo is the Too Faced Hangover Primer all over and the ELF Poreless Putty Primer around the T Zone.
So of course after a major shopping binge I decided to try the Cover FX gripping primer and although it is pricey for a primer when there are so many great options at the drugstore I have to tell you, it’s a game changer!
The primer itself is very tacky, it has a gel like consistency and is very thick coming out of the tube. I almost felt like I was applying a thick honey to my face so I used it very sparingly the first time (about the size of a pea) but happy to see a little goes a long way. The amount not only covered my entire face but the results were mind boggling. I tried the primer over the course of several days with Colourpop No Filter Foundation, Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Jouer High Coverage Creme Foundation for varying levels of coverage and wear time and every single time I was wowed.
This primer not only gives you a flush base to work with making you skin appear smoother, the gripping aspect of the primer acts like super glue for all the foundations I tried with them all becoming budge proof and giving me a flawless finish for at least eight hour wear. Although I am a little camera shy, here’s a picture so you can see the finish on my skin.
