Three new primers in my collection: Huda Beauty, Touch In Sol and Laura Geller

Primer, Touch In Sol, Huda Beauty, Laura Geller, Spackle Treatment, No Pore Blem Primer, Complexion Perfection, review,

I know that some people never use primers, but for me, it's a step that I cannot skip. My skin is dry, has visible pores and some texture so I use primers to counteract those issues rather than for longevity as I generally don't have problems with my base disappearing after a few hours. I am slowly but surely working my way through my stash of primers and although I shouldn't really have added new primers before finishing others, I just did! No excuse, I just wanted them - well, I bought two and one was sent to me! I've been using them for around a month and am ready to share my thoughts!

Laura Geller Spackle Protective Under Make-Up Primer SPF 30: This is the perfect everyday primer that would suit all skin types. It's very lightweight and it absorbs immediately - perfect for those who don't want to feel an extra layer on their skin. It feels very soothing (aloe leaf is one of the ingredients) and it adds a very subtle glow to the skin - nothing overly shiny - just a soft sheen. As the name suggests, it contains SPF 30 so it adds some extra protection to the skin without the greasy feeling that some SPFs have. I find this works best with light fluid foundations rather than anything too creamy. Like I said earlier, I don't really need help with extending the wear time of my foundation so I can't comment on that but I like the subtle glow that it adds to my skin and I think it's an ideal daytime primer. It's also good value as the tube contains 59ml of product compared to the usual 30ml tubes. Buy from Escentual.

Touch In Sol No Pore Blemd Primer: My friend Leanne raved about this primer and we generally have similar taste in products so I knew I had to try it and at £15, it wasn't too big a risk. I usually don't like silicone primers because although they provide a smooth, velvet base, they often dry my already Sahara-like skin out further. This primer, however, doesn't do that. It actually feels quite lightweight on the skin and it blurs over my visible pores and smooths areas with texture, to provide the perfect canvas for my foundation. I particularly like to pair it with Becca Aqua Luminous Foundation because I like my imperfections to be hidden before I apply a dewy base and this foundation literally glides over the primer. It works well with most of my foundations and it's a primer that I think all skin types would get along with. ASOS now stock Touch In Sol as well as Cult Beauty.

Huda Beauty Complexion Perfection: I recently reviewed this in my Huda Beauty Brand Focus post here. This is definitely the most nourishing of the three primers in this post. It's quite thick in texture but absorbs easily and fully into the skin. This primer pairs best with foundations that are quick creamy, rather than very thin in consistency. I don't think it would work well on oily skin. It doesn't add any glow nor is it mattifying, it just provides a velvet base for foundation. For my dry skin, it is an excellent option for the colder months and I know I will use every last drop. Buy from Cult Beauty. There is also free shipping on all Huda Beauty for the month of Novemver with Cult Beauty.

All products are bought by me, unless otherwise stated. The Laura Geller primer was kindly sent to me but I bought the other two myself. Opinion is always my own.
