This primer got a lot of attention on social media simply because it is a sheer black color. I have the mini size and after trying it out a few times I have a few thoughts on it.
Besides the fact that this primer is a black color (it contains melanin) it claims to shield against HEV and IR light which comes from computer/tablet/smart phone screens and this light causes premature ageing and skin damage. I was very intrigued that it also claims to diminish the look of pores and fine lines.
Once applied, this primer does not darken your skin tone – it becomes clear. It feels very hydrating and isn’t greasy or heavy at all. I don’t notice it doing much for my pores and will have to follow up with a pore filler before applying my foundation. This primer sits nicely on my skin and under foundation but in all honesty it doesn’t do much in terms of blurring out pores/fine lines or making my foundation stay on longer than usual.
I would apply this as a moisturizer because of the HEV and IR light protection that it gives but would follow up with another primer to give me the look and longevity that I want from my foundation.
