New York Color Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer Reviews

    Not really what I expected

    I love the NYC line. I find it a great way to play around with new products without breaking my budget. This primer has a nice feel and did not break my skin out (which was my main fear in sampling primers). This goes on smoothly and dries quickly (a must for me in the morning). I also enjoyed that it was not overly filled with silicone (or anything that felt silicone). Too many products of morehese types may help keep makeup in place but make it impossible to blend your makeup over them. I found the mica in it to cause my face to look a little too sparkly. I find that my forehead gets a little too shiny and the sparkly effect just exacerbated this. While the light reflecting is subtle, it seems a bit much for me for day time wear all over my face. After that I started using it on my eyelids, decollate and as a highlighter. I have found that it does a great job of holding eye shadow and liner in place all day even in the heat of summer. The shimmer effect is nice on your chest and shoulders in bare summer tops. I think this is product is misnamed in calling it a primer. It does help hold makeup in place but does not really do much in terms of making your skin look smoother, or reduce the appearance of pores and it is certainly not great looking on wrinkles or any of the other primer hype that you hear. I found this to be a nice addition to my makeup regime, but not really the primer I was hoping for. Given the price (less than five dollars) it is certainly worth giving a try, but I would not recommend it to replace a primer that you already enjoy. — 2 weeks, 5 days ago
