What the brand says: This new generation of primer is a lightweight serum-like formula that increases the spreadability of subsequent complexion makeup to help avoid the unnatural and uneven accumulation of pigments especially around the eyes and on dry skin. The formula also acts as a light, non-oily surface hydrator for a natural dewy look.
MY TAKE ON THE ORDINARY HIGH-SPREADABILITY FLUID PRIMER
Packaging: The primer comes in a characteristic frosty ‘The Ordinary’ packaging with no fancy labels yet the bottle looks classy! The dropper is easy to use but does get a little messy due to the highly viscous and gel-like product. Nevertheless, the bottle is travel friendly.
Texture: The primer is highly viscous as I earlier mentioned but is super lightweight and fluid. It spreads on your skin like a dream and leaves behind a velvety soft finish.
How I use and after-effects: The primer is supposed to be used as the last step in skincare regime and before you apply your makeup. I use this after using my skin care products and moisturizer before I use a concealer and foundation. Simply take a very tiny amount, dot it on your face and spread using your finger tips.
This primer is something I have never used before, the texture is quite unique and you need a very tiny amount of the product every time you use it. I usually apply a good quantity of primer on my face thanks to textured skin and open pores but do not attempt applying a lot of this product since it will simply slide away your foundation leaving behind exposed skin and patchy finish- I mean it! I am using this since a week now and I feel the primer works the best when you use just a single drop for your entire face; the more you use it the more slippery your face gets and if you sweat or if the climate is humid, may god save your foundation. The primer when used correctly can actually give you the best finish. My foundation goes on like a dream when I use this primer and does give my face a radiant dewy finish even if I have used a matte foundation- which I obviously love. The primer is actually supposed to spread your foundation evenly on the face so there are no patches and it does just that! Also, makeup lasts long and looks fresh by the end of the day. The primer contains silicon yet it did not clog my pores or anything, in fact it makes a protective barrier that prevents direct contact of makeup and my skin. Does not make your skin oily or greasy. I quite like this primer and give this a thumbs up!
Note: Always close the dropper lid/bottle lid thoroughly since the product can actually thicken up and change texture. Shake well before use.
