I love trying out new primers, and Revolution Beauty have two brand new releases to try out, the Revolution Conceal & Fix Mattifying Primer and the Revolution Conceal & Fix Pore Perfecting Primer, both very different, but both pretty darn amazing.
First up, we have the Revolution Conceal & Fix Mattifying Primer, which is a part of the iconic Conceal & Fix complexion family, and is suitable for all skin types and tones. If you want to opt for a matte finish to the skin, then the Mattifying Primer is the one. It has a lightweight, translucent formula which is enriched with Salicylic Acid to soothe the skin and help to minimise the appearance of redness and blemishes, so especially great for skin that is oily, or slightly sensitive. The Mattifying Primer comes in a lovely frosted glass bottle complete with rose gold lid and matching pump applicator which allows you to control the amount of product you are using. You get 30ml of the product, which I think is great for the £8.00 price tag and is more of a gel-like consistency, which when applies to the skin feels like velvet and smooths and soothes the skin instantly, giving a mattifying effect that doesn't look dried out, but still very healthy.
We then have the Revolution Conceal & Fix Pore Perfecting Primer, which is more of a balm-style product. With its putty-balm consistency, this primer helps create the illusion of a smooth and poreless complexion and reminds me of the Tatcha Silk Canvas Primer, albeit at a much cheaper price. The packaging consists of a plastic pot with a rose gold lid which contains 20g of primer and you even get a little spatula like with the Tatcha Primer so that you don't have to stick your fingers into it. I find this a very lightweight formula and it glides onto the skin like silk, melting seamlessly into the skin. I suffer from quite enlarged pores, and so this helps to really reduce the size of them, and it makes such a smooth base for my makeup, that I have found my foundation applies a lot easier and smoother, and that it lasts throughout the day too, whereas with some primers I find that my foundation can move around. This Primer also costs £8.00, which again is such good value as you get a great amount of product and you only need a small amount per use.
