Benefit Stay Flawless 15 Hour Primer
Benefit, I have such a bizarre relationship with you. For many years I have obsessed about their products and loved them. Their offerings are generally good, sometimes they have become staples in my daily routine, but they are pricey for what they are, and some things haven't made the grade, mostly the 'one for all' products, as I think for such a high price point, they could probably offer more refined options. However, their most recent mascara, They're Real, is incredible, and up there with Diorshow Blackout and YSL Faux Cils. I highly recommend you snapping up a copy of Elle magazine right now as they're giving a generous travel sized one away for free.
Primers from benefit haven't been particularly forthcoming across the board of skin needs, the most recent offering being the Porefessional (see below) which is a silicone heavy primer that makes your skin velvety and smooth, but sadly my skin didn't get on with it at all, and it didn't give my foundation any more longevity, and it didn't apply any better than if i'd done it on bare skin. Actually it was worse if anything!
But I am not one to hold a grudge when it comes to a brand, especially when I can smell a new product release. It's like a drug to me! So what are the claims of this brand new primer??
