Beauty | Review: Stila One Step Correcting Primer

Stila One Step Correcting Primer - £24

I got this primer for christmas last year and to start with, I wasn't entirely mad on it because I found that it got used up incredibly quickly and because it's quite expensive, I didn't like that. Now, I don't know if it was just me using too much product but over the past few months, that problem doesn't seem to be present anymore. 

"Does it help to improve the lasting power of my makeup?" is the question that I hear you all asking! In my opinion, yes. I feel as though this adds on an extra hour or so onto the wear of my makeup. I am one of those people that uses primer religiously every single day and I couldn't be without it so I would say this is defiantly a favourite for me. 

However, the thing that I like the most about this primer, is the light consistency and how it feels when it is applied to the skin as some primers can be way too heavy and feel like their adding on a whole other layer which just makes everything so much thicker and heavier. 

Another aspect that I like about this primer is the triple swirl helix with the three different colours that counter-act the pigments that are not so welcome on our faces! I really think that this creates a nice smooth base for the foundation to go onto and feel that even though it doesn't make everything absolutely flawless and perfect, it gives some kind of correction and I really like that! 

Overall, I'd defiantly say that this is my favourite primer that I currently own, however I feel as though The Present Primer by Philosophy may be a little bit better but it is a little heavier on the skin so I do love this one! 

Do you use primer?

  2. I've been umming about this primer for a while. I've never found one that actually makes my make-up last any longer but then I've not tried all that many! I might give this a ago. Fab review :) x x
