In all honesty I’ve not had the best experience with Rimmel London primers, I tried the Stay Matte Primer and just hated it, it was sticky and just did nothing for my face. When Rachel gave the the Fix and Perfect Primer I did have higher hopes for it especially as it seemed to have a few more good reviews, sadly it’s another dud for me here’s why.
The packaging isn’t one that I’m a huge fan of in all honesty, it’s made with cheap plastic that gets grubby quickly although the squeezy tube makes application easier. This primer is priced at £6.99.
There is a lot of product claims with this primer, Rimmel London claims that this primer does the following:
“Unique advanced formula Foundation glides on more smoothly, more evenly and wears longer. Or wear alone for an all-day fresh and even complexion. Smoothes to minimize pores. Resurfaces for an even complexion. Brightens skin all day. Mattifies and eliminates shine. Protects skin from environmental aggressors.”
This primer is a thick white cream that feels as though it has silicones in it. Similar to the Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer it feels heavy and sticky on the skin. In all honesty this doesn’t really live up to any of the product claims, it doesn’t make my skin smoother and it does brighten or mattify nor does it eliminate shine, if anything I prefer not wearing a primer than wearing this as it doesn’t feel as though it’s doing anything for my skin.
In all honesty I’m not a fan of this primer, it just feels like an extra layer of makeup for no apparent reason, it’s also near enough identical to the Stay Matte Primer, I wouldn’t repurchase this or recommend it.
The Rimmel London Fix and Perfect Pro Primer is available here for £6.99.
