Satin Primer By Illamasqua | Strobing Essential

Recently strobing has become massive and kicked contouring out of the lime light (which I’m actually kind of happy about). I have oily skin so there is often a fine line between a dewy/ glowy finish and the “I’ve just ran a half marathon” skin look… Annoyingly I’m recommending a £26 primer that I managed to pick up for £9.99 (a very lucky TX Maxx find). When the time comes that I need to repurchase and pay full whack, this stuff is that good that I don’t think I’ll hesitate.

It is the primer that could actually be worn on it’s own, it gives the most natural looking glow I’ve ever had from a base product. As a primer it keeps foundation looking like skin and your makeup looking light and fresh. My foundation is also lasting so much longer even though I have an oiler base (which I thought would clash with the illuminating effect of this, but it doesn’t!). I can imagine this being perfect for a bride on her wedding day, long lasting makeup that doesn’t look cakey- perfect.

I think if you’re on the hunt for something light weight, provides a glow and holds your foundation in place (and have the money to splurge) then you should give this a whirl! Not a product I’ve seen much mention of from beauty blogger, has anyone else tried this?
