Revitalash Fine Line Primer* - £46.50
If you have not noticed from my pictures I'm one of the lucky ladies that suffers with fine lines under my eyes, around my mouth and on my forehead. This is annoying as I'm only 24 but becomes even more of a problem when applying make up. Like with large pores, concealers and foundation love to sit in fine lines and make them look worse so a primer to combat this is an additional step I take in my make up routine. I know at some point I will need to invest in an anti wrinkle but until then, I use primer. Although this improves the appearance, it's not amazing and have never tried a primer specifically for fine lines so when QVC gave me the opportunity to road test Revitalash's Fine Line Primer I was exited to say the least! They're known for selling amazing Skincare so had high hopes for this product!
Revitalash Fine Line Primer claims to create a silky, smooth texture to help minimize and soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and create a smooth base for make up. It's packaged in a frosted, weighty 15ml glass jar that looks very sleek and high end. The texture of this primer feels soft with a silicone feel, I know a lot of people dislike this but personally I find silicone based products more effective at minimising imperfections.
To apply this primer you need a tiny, pea sized amount, if that. Applying more makes it harder to settle which causes it to slide and makes make up application harder. Once applied to the areas that have fine lines it leaves an airbrushed look which as claimed, minimizes the appearance. I think this product works a lot like a pore minimizer as it blurs imperfections, it has the same effect but this has been specifically formulated for fine lines and has tiny pearl type flecks that brighten the eye area.
In conclusion I've been very impressed with this primer, fine lines are something I've become self conscious of for some time and although normal primer helps, it doesn't achieve anything anywhere near the results I have archived with this. Fine Line Primer may have a larger price tag than most, but as you need such a small amount I'm confident it will last longer than a normal facial primer.
Do you have fine lines? Do you use anything to minimize them?
