Illamasqua's Satin Primer is described as a primer that lifts and highlights the face while also creating a stunning dewy effect.
Cost: $30 for 1 oz.
Illamasqua Satin Primer on hand.
Slightly dewy finish on back of hand.
Pros: + Milky texture so a little goes a long way. Easy to apply and blend on face.
+ White in color but doesn't leave a white cast on face (hurrah!).
+ Leaves my face looking very dewy but I wonder if it could be confused for shine.
+ Definitely recommended for those with dry skin since it absorbs into skin well.
+ Lightweight. Doesn't feel heavy on my skin.
+ Has SPF 20.
+ Smells like vanilla candy.
+ Did not bother my sensitive skin.
Cons: - Probably not suitable for those with oily skin since it made my dry-normal skin so shiny/dewy.
- No noticeable lifting in my skin. Not sure about the highlighting unless you count the all over dewyness as highlighter.
- Pricey. $30 for 1 oz? Hmm....
I've been into primers lately since a friend recently informed me that primers are actually good to use cause they create a barrier between your skin and the makeup you wear so as to not allow your skin to absorb too much makeup. Definitely good to know since nobody wants clogged pores! Still, with the amount of Illamasqua Satin Primer you get for $30, I probably wouldn't purchase this for myself since it's only 1 oz. Thankfully I was able to test out this primer thanks to my friend T. I'd recommend this primer though for those who have dry skin and or as a primer for the winter time. :)
