NARS Pro-Prime Pore Refining Primer




I never really saw the fuss in primers, surely if a foundation was good enough it wouldn't need another product underneath it to improve it's finish, longevity etc. Plus every single primer aimed towards pores and oily skin seemed to have that greasy silicone texture that I cannot stand. That was until I tried out the Nars Pro Prime Pore Refining Primer (longest name ever) whilst being colour matched for another product. 

I was intrigued by it's moisturiser-esque texture, it didn't feel like it was smothering my skin, instead it felt really hydrating despite it being oil-free. The results are also instant, it leaves my skin practically poreless. It also claims to reduce the appearance of large pores over time, thanks to the pure lentil seed extract but I'll keep you posted! 

The ingredients also include pure mineral powders to keep shine at bay but also promises to be alcohol-free, paraben-free as well as synthetic fragrance-free, so shouldn't aggravate sensitive skin. This has totally changed my opinion of primers and I notice a dramatic difference in the way my skin looks instantly after make-up as well as the wear of it throughout the day. 

Definitely one to try if you suffer with oily skin and enlarged pores.
