It comes in a glass bottle with a dropper. I love it, it makes it so easy to drop the product all over the face without wasting it.
The formula looks very luminous but on the face it really isn’t. Once it dries, it gives the skin a satiny glow that works like a dream to blur pores. You can clearly see it in the face shot. The first picture is the primer on it’s own (you can’t really notice the difference) but in the second one you can see the effect under foundation. My skin look smooth but natural.
I apply a few drops and blend them with my fingers. I usually wait a few minutes for it to dry. It works with both foundations I use (Make Up For Ever Reboot and Iconic London Super Smoother Blurring Skin Tint) but I’ve noticed that the matching foundation works only if you use it with this primer. (I’m posting the review on Thursday so you can read more details in it).
On me, it prolongs the lasting power of my foundation and it usually keeps me matte for 6 hours. Then I have to reapply powder. It starts to break apart after 12 hours which is awesome.
Final Thoughts on the Iconic London Underglow Blurring Primer:
Words can’t really express how much I love the Iconic London Underglow Blurring Primer. It makes my skin look airbrushed. It blurs pores without being heavy, it doesn’t make my foundation cakey and prologs my base’s lasting time. It’s matte but not too matte, glowy but not too glowy. I love the applicator and the packaging. The price is great and after only a few weeks it has become one of the best all over primer I’ve ever tried. I normally use two (pore minimizer and a gripping one) but this one works on it’s own and looks incredible as is. I highly recommend it if you are on the market for a new primer.
I really hope you guys enjoyed the post, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know what you think and if you have any questions.
