Good Morning Girlies!
Until recently I was only giving thought to the actual make up I was putting on my face and not thinking about what I was doing before and after applying it. However, many beauty blogs that I read put so much emphasis on priming and setting that I thought I should look into getting a primer and a setter myself to see if they can make as much difference to your make up as people claim.
For primer, which is what you apply just before you put on your make up to allow easier application and better end results, I went for the Rimmel fix and perfect pro. I'll review the setter I went for tomorrow in part 2, as this post would be mega long if I reviewed both in one!
Rimmel fix and pefect pro primer-
I went for this primer because it was on offer on the Boots website for £4.99 rather than its usual price of £6.99 and was also the one that gave you the most product for money. When I was researching into primers I was a bit shocked at how expensive they are for how much product you get, for example No7's Airbrush away primer was £19.50 for only 30ml and all the primers were a lot more pricey than the foundations by the same brand. I've also found most of them aren't available in store (even the massive Sheffield Boots!) so you have to add on the postage and packaging cost on too.
After the faff of having to order it online I was worried it would run out really quickly as it didn't seem like there was much product in the bottle, but thankfully over a month later it's still going strong! This is because I've found a little bit of this product goes a very long way and the tiniest blob manages to cover my whole face due to its nice light and thin consistency that spreads and blends easily.
