Garnier is an over looked brand. I feel like they're being shunned a little by beauty bloggers and not really given enough screen tim on blogs. I feel like they have some great products and this is one of them. I picked up the 5 Second Perfect Blur Primer when there was a third off in my local boots, making it less than £10, around £9.50 if I remember correctly, and this made me them, hmm yes i'll give it a go. I never used to wear primers but 6 months after trying my first one I now cant be without one. The aim of this product is to blur any imperfections to give you the perfect base for make up.
The texture of the product is thick and almost spongey. It goes on evenly and leaves skin feeling super smooth. Without make up I cant really tell a massive difference but underneath a foundation this does give a slight air brushed finish as it fills in pores and fine, FINE, lines. This does nothing for my under eye deep lines sadly.
5 Second Perfect Blur Primer is a dupe for Benefit's Porefessional. Right? Well, yes and no. Yes as in it does practically everything Porefessional does, as in it smooths out fine lines, wrinkles etc. but it has no skin tone to it. For me Perfect Blur is superior to Porefessional, both in product and value for money but a lot of that boils down to my opinion of Porefessional (i find my foundation stick to Porefessional and clumps, not a good look).
Perfect blur is a great base for make up, however, I wouldn't rely on it to keep my make up in place any longer than usual (8 hours tops, which is still good, but not like OMG this primer is like glue!); I still use a setting spray as well to keep it for a full day.
Have you tried perfect blur? would you?
