Yesterday I got sidetracked in Selfridges (as I always do whenever I enter the shop). I ended up spending a long time at the M.A.C. counter, staring in awe at their amazing selection of make up. Primers are a fairly new make up phenomenon, and since I first discovered them 15 months ago I am a fully fledged convert- sometimes opting to ditch the foundation all together in favour of primers, creating a much more natural look. I am incredibly lucky in that I don't suffer from spots and my skin isn't oily, therefore I was advised by the M.A.C. consultant that my skin would be more suited to the compact beauty balm in a solid cream formula, which provides a lighter and more natural coverage than the tinted cream.
Today was my first day using the product, and I am already in love with it! I have used two different primers previously, (Benefit's 'Porefessional', which aims to minimise the appearance of pores and Benefit's 'Stay Flawless' which helps keep your make up in place all day long), and although both of these products work fantastically, I was after a primer which contained a hint of colour and would even out my skin tone. The M.A.C. beauty balm feels so light and silky, and makes my skin look smooth and even- (someone even commented that my face looked like it had been photoshopped!), so this product is a definite keeper in my eyes!
Priced at £24, as with all M.A.C. products, it is much more expensive than your average drug store brand, however the quality is definitely reflected in the price so I would 100% recommend spending more if you want a high quality product that really does work!
