Revlon vital radiance primers

I don't think I have seen this range in the shops Boots etc, but I brought mine from Ebay..Yes they were all brand new,carded and cheap! You can also find this range in T.J Hughes.

I have been looking for some good primers for some time,when I saw this make up by Revlon.

Smoothing face primer
This comes in two shades Apricot warm for olive and darker skin tones and petal cool for fairer,pink skin tone. Depending on what skin type you have. I am cool skinned with pink tones so went with the Petal cool.I got this from Ebay for about £3.50 for 30ml.

What I love about this:
  • Oil free
  • Contains SPF 25
  • Helps minimize pores
  • keeps foundation in place for longer.
  • Evens skin tone

I apply this about ten minutes after my moisturiser and wait another 5 minutes before applying my foundation, I have found that this really does help the over look of my skin. The fact that it is oil free is great as my skin can at times be oily. It does help my foundation last longer and go on a lot smoother. It has a creamy texture a lot like foundation,you do need to make sure that it is rubbed in well.

I love the fact it contains SPF 25, as I worry a lot about sun damage, especially on the face as the sun can cause wrinkles..!

Tip: Blend equal amounts of primer and foundation in your hand, then apply like normal for sheer, luminous coverage.

Smoothing Lip Primer
I have never used a lip primer before, I normally use my Dove lip care to look after my lips.I paid around £2/3 for this. Its looks like a normal lipstick.

What I love about this:
  • Very moisturising
  • Contains SPF 15
  • Conditions lips

It goes on clear and leaves a glossy finish. To be honest, its to glossy to be used as a primer. I applied my lipstick over this and as its so glossy the lipstick didn't last long at all.

I use this as a lip balm, as it contains SPF and conditions,it looks great on its own, or over a nude lipstick to add a bit of extra shine.

Smoothing eye Primer
This primer is a moose type primer,and comes in a little plastic pot of 3.1g. A little goes a long way. I paid around £2.00 for this.

What I love about this:
  • Improves eye shadow application
  • Make eyeshadow colours more vibrant
  • Helps eyeshadow last longer without creasing.

This makes my eyelids a lot less oily and does not irritate my eyes at all, which is a plus as I have sensitive eyes. It does make your eye make up stay on longer then if you didn't use a primer,as it stops your eyelids from being to oily.
For the price this is pretty good.

I also use this as something to make some of my eyeshadow more vibrant.This did make my eyeshadow last a lot longer. I applied my make up today at 11am and at 6pm my eyeshadow is still there! With only a little bit of creasing. Would definitely recommend this.

Overall for the price they are not to bad at all. Out of the three the Face primer is definitely something I will buy again.

There is also a lot more in this range,Mascaras,blushers etc. They also do make up brushes as well, which I have not tried as yet.I think I might try some of the other products in the future.
