W7 Primer Magic Camera Ready Face Primer | Review!

For me, one of the most important part to my makeup is the base and the primer plays a big part in how the makeup looks overall. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now you will know that some of my all time favourite makeup products are by W7 including the Delicious Palette, the Honolulu Bronzer and the Genius Feather Light Foundation. As I love W7’s eyeshadow palettes and foundations I wanted to branch out and try some of their other products and see if they match up to the performance of these. I chose to try out the primer and this is the Prime Magic Camera Ready Face Primer in the purple colour which is supposed to brighten the look of the skin. I chose this one particularly because I love a glowy and hydrated base.

This primer has a silicone type feel to it, which I thought I would really like, as I have quite big pores and silicone primers are incredible for creating a smooth base ready for makeup. After application I did feel that my skin was very much hydrated and it did look much brighter. As much as I blended the primer, I did feel that it was just sitting on top of my skin and when I started to apply the foundation it wouldn’t sink into the skin either and created almost a mask. I found that the foundation was very much sticking to my dry patches, which I know this may be solely down to me having dry patches on my skin and not the primer drying it out, but the beauty blender was just moving the makeup across my skin rather than bouncing it in.

These primers also come in Clear and Green which is for cancelling out redness and they’re said to be incredible dupes for the Smashbox Photo Finish Primers. I really like the Smashbox PF Clear primer so I may try out the Clear one by W7 to see if that one is more suited to my skin and to see if it works just as well as the Smashbox one!! 

This Primer retails at £6.95, however you can pick it up for much cheaper on Amazon and eBay, and this is very well priced considering you do get a decent sized amount of the product. I did have very high hopes for this primer as I’m such a lover of W7 cosmetics but this was a let down for me. This may work wonders for those with oily skin and maybe normal skin, but for me (I have combination skin) it just wasn’t a match for what I like in a primer.

I’m gutted that this post did seem quite negative, but I know you all rely on us bloggers to be truthful with our thoughts and opinions. This post was in no way bashing W7 as a brand because I genuinely love their products so much, however, this primer just wasn't for me and my skin type.

I hope you all don't mind that this post was a little short, but I really wanted to share my opinion on this product with you all!! Let me know your thoughts on this primer if you've tried it in the comments below, I'd love to know what you think. Also please let me know some of your go-to primers that you think I should try out!!

Until next time,
