Happy Thursday loves(well almost a Friday for me though) and happy Sephora shopping day!
I am glad when Huda Beauty launched her faux filter foundation she also launched primers-The Complexion Perfection Pre-makeup Base. A primer not only moisturizes the skin but also provides a perfect base by smoothing the skin.
From the brand founder:
“I always use a primer before applying my foundation to smooth out the surface of my skin and keep my makeup in place all day! This formula is so light and hydrating so you can wear it under makeup for the perfect base or on its own for a natural, airbrushed look.”—Huda Kattan
My first impression of this product is it looks like a luxurious skincare rather than a primer. The whole packaging feels sleek and well designed. Above all, I checked its ingredients, this moisturizing primer contains some amazing stuff like Rosa Moschata Seed Oil (organic rosehip oil) and dimethicone known as skin protectant.
Applying a primer before doing my makeup is an important step for my makeup routine. It can helps your makeup last longer. Using a primer can also prevent skin to absorb your makeup. Moreover, you can choose a primer that fits your skin’s need, like color-correcting primers, hydrating primers and the others.
This Complexion Perfection pre-makeup base is amazing. It provides the maximal hydration to my skin which I really need since I have a combination skin type. The most important is it doesn’t make my skin looks greasy or anything, my skin just feels well prepared.
I used this primer with couple different foundation, like the Dior Star, Fenty Beauty Pro filt’r (haven’t tried it with Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation though). I am happy about all the results I got, it’s a great primer to use under any types of foundation also it’s travel friendly like now I have it with me in Japan! Despite many people found the fragrance unpleasant, I personally love its smell, it reminds me the Oud perfume I love while I was traveling in Dubai.
Have you tried this primer? What do you think? Btw, in case you don’t know every HB Faux Filter foundation contains a good size of sample of the primer.
