The buzz word this season? PRIMERS! Every brand from Proactiv to Vera Wang has one. Last time, I reviewed the Proactiv Smoothing Primer. Next primer to try on my crusade for the ‘holy grail’ of all face primers is the Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro Primer — this primer claims to deliver 5 in 1 results that claim to:
– Smooth and Resurface Skin
– Hydrate any dryness and protect skin
– Mattify to reduce shine
– Reduce appearance of large pores
– Even skin tone
I have tried so many primers in the past I was skeptical, of course. But, I was pleasantly surprised with the results. The texture was nice — not too slippery — so my foundation did go on smoothly. I have to say I liked it better than the Proactiv Smoothing Primer.
My foundation did stay on all day. I liked the fact that it didn’t feel like pure silicone — the texture was more like a lightweight lotion. It is a white lotion, however, so don’t get nervous, it does sink into the skin right away. I would give this Fix and Perfect Primer a 7 out of 10. Good mass market purchase, and for a price of $8.99 it’s a steal.

Aqua/Water/Eau; Cyclopentasiloxane; Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate; Propylene Glycol; Phenyl Trimethicone; Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate; Dimethicone; Polyethylene; Talc; Dimethicone PEG-10/15 Crosspolymer; Magnesium Sulfate; Vinyl Dimethicone/Methicone Silsesquioxane Crosspolymer; Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer; Phenoxyethanol; Lauryl PEG-9 Polydimethylsiloxyethyl Dimethicone; Lecithin; Parfum/Fragrance; Silica Dimethyl Silylate; Methylparaben; Gossypium Herbaceum (Cotton) Powder; Tocopheryl Acetate; Butylparaben; Ethylparaben; Isobutylparaben; Propylparaben; Silica; Dipropylene Glycol; Tocopherol; Triethoxycaprylylsilane; BHT; Hexyl Cinnamal; Limonene; Butylphenyl Methylpropional; Benzyl Salicylate; Linalool; Geraniol; Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone; Citronellol; [May Contain/Peut Contenir +/-: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Mica (CI 77019), Chromium Oxide Greens (CI 77288), Ultramarines (CI 77007)]
