Primers have always been kinda of a waste of money for me to be honest. They promise a lot of things at the beginning, but in the end they are a huge disappointment. I have tried a lot of primers and I’m sure I will try many more, but I do have to give a medal of honour to the current favourite Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer by Marc Jacobs. Why the hell do companies always give these ridiculous long names ??
A little bit about the primer according to the Marc Jacobs Beauty website:
WHAT IT IS:
A SKIN-SMOOTHING, MAKEUP EXTENDING PRIMER INFUSED WITH FIVE TYPES OF COCONUT TO NOURISH AND HYDRATE THE COMPLEXION.
WHAT IT DOES:
UNDER(COVER) PERFECTING COCONUT FACE PRIMER BRINGS THE REFRESHING FEEL OF COCONUT TO YOUR FACE WHILE IT PERFECTS AND EXTENDS MAKEUP WEAR. WITH ITS HYDRATING, NUTRIENT-RICH FORMULA, IT IS ESPECIALLY IDEAL FOR DRY SKIN TYPES TO CREATE A SMOOTH AND IMPROVED SKIN SURFACE BEFORE FOUNDATION APPLICATION.
I pretty much I agree with everything other then the fact it extends the wear of makeup. In my case it doesn’t in particularly help with the longevity of my makeup, but it does help my unbelievably dry winter skin. Which is exactly what I need. Lately all of my foundations have been looking flakey and dry no matter how much I moisturize. That’s where the Marc Jacobs Under(cover) primer comes in handy. It makes my makeup go on evenly and smoothly and gives me moisture but without making me greasy.
