A Brilliant Drugstore Primer

I’ve never been one for face primers as the effective ones are usually expensive and don’t do much for the face makeup. However, I went to Target the other day and spotted the Rimmel Stay Matte Primer, which immediately caught my attention. I’ve been using the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder for years to keep my face shine free and I was hoping that this primer would do the same. The bottle is really clean and is filled to the brim with the white priming fluid that turns clear. I applied this on my T-zone and was shocked to see my pores disappear upon contact with my foundation! I have a handful of really large pores around my nose area and when I put my foundation over the primer, those pores were seemingly gone. After a 10 hour long day, my face makeup looked exactly the same as it did when I applied it. I blotted once throughout the day, but that was it. I didn’t have to keep applying powder to keep my face matte, which in turn usually makes it look cakey. This prime really kept my makeup looking the same all day long, which isn’t a statement I often make about a makeup product. I give the Stay Matte Primer a 10 out of 10 hands down!
