It’s my first day off for Christmas and I’m so excited, this is the first time I’ve taken annual leave at Christmas since being old enough to work so I’ve got 10 days off which is lovely!
I have lots of family things planned for Christmas time including making some gooey Nutella desserts so I’m very much looking forward to that.
For the last few months I’ve been testing out lots of high street products, one of which is the Collection Primed and Ready Primer that I picked up from Boots.
The Collection Primed and Ready Primer Powered by Witch is a mattifying pore minimiser. That’s a bit of a mouthful!
The primer itself is transparent and contains witch hazel to help keep your skin clear with its antibacterial properties, it has long been known as an aid for spots.
It blends easily on the skin and gives a good base for make up, I haven’t had any experience of it coming back off my skin in rolled up bits so that’s always a good thing!
It mattifies my skin and has been really good for work, I don’t think it would last much longer than that, so not all day and night but for a bargain £4.99 (currently £3.99 on offer at Boots!) I don’t think that’s a problem.
You could use this primer without make up if you wanted, it does help to keep shine at bay for the day but if I’m having a no make up day I’d also skip the primer.
I’ve been using this recently with the Invisible Setting Powder which has also been really good. I’d recommend using the two if you have a shiny t-zone like me, and the powder is really fine and doesn’t seem to sit on the skin and appear to be powdery
Have you tried anything from Collection? What’s your favourite?
I’ve been trying lots from them recently and have been really impressed, the Lasting Perfection Concealer is a personal favourite!
