Pixi Flawless & Poreless | ReviewMonday, August 18, 2014
I love a primer and I have tried a fair few in the past 2 years. I didn't know what to expect from Pixi Flawless and Poreless* as I had not seen any reviews on it.
Heres what Pixi have to say about the formular -
'Primer creates a seamless, silky canvas with a beautiful no-shine, cashmere finish. The formula's skin-loving ingredients clear and unblock pores to allow for utterly flawless, long-lasting makeup application. It is the perfect skin primer for all complexions and all skin types. Pore minimizing. Shine controlling. Hydrating. Oil free. Hypoallergenic. For all skin types.'
I love the packaging its a nice big tube a little like the Smashbox one so it has plenty of product in there. I also like these size tubes as when you are running out you can cut the top of and the hole is big enough to get your fingers right to the bottom to make sure you get the last bit of product. (yes I am a tight arse and I dont like waste)
The products itself is a cream textured primer something I'm not that keen on in primers I've tried before I much prefer the texture of the silicon based ones (personal preference).
Some of the Beneficial Ingredients
Willow Bark gives natural shine control
Salicylic Acid clears and unblocks pores
Shea Butter to nourish the skin
Titanium Dioxide protects the skin's surface
Enantia Chlorantha bark is medicinal & anti-viral
On applying this I just worked it into my skin like a foundation and it had a very light tint to it which I like.
I applied my foundation on the top and it looked lovely and flawless I wouldn't say it was any better than my other primers for how my make up applied but I liked it just as much.
On the weekend I wore it for a wedding and then I was going out that night and I can honestly say I didn't need to reapply my base. Pixi Flawless and Poreless made my foundation stay in place all day.
So after the initial thought of not sure of the cream texture I take it back and will definitely repurchase this.
I have dry skin and this also made my face a little dewy which I like from a product as some primers can dry me out. So I am very happy with this product and look forward to trying more Pixi products.
Which type of primer do you prefer??
