Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa
I had been umming and ahhing about getting this product, which is by MUA Makeup Academy, one of my favourite makeup brands. I went to Superdrug a few weeks ago and decided to give it a go. This is the MUA Pro/Base Primer Oil with God Flakes.
From the moment I tried a little of this product on the back of my hand, I knew that it was definitely for me. Firstly can I just say if you have a really oily skin type I don’t think that this will be for you? Also if you like your foundation on the matte side then this product maybe not for you too. I have recently got into a dewier type of foundation for myself as I feel it is better for me now at my age. In my opinion, this lovely oil primer with the gold flakes is absolutely a must for anyone who is about my age (59) with dry skin and who loves makeup. I applied this over my light gel moisturiser at the start of my makeup application. It’s a lovely glass bottle with a pipette applicator that I did drop straight onto my skin with, rather than add the product to my hand then apply. I mainly concentrated on my cheeks hoping that the primer would blur out my enlarged pores somewhat. It didn’t, but the glow it gives my skin I love so I don’t mind the pores at all. It’s not a really oily oil and it certainly doesn’t smell like an oil either it’s really quite a pleasant smell to it. I then applied a matte foundation by another brand over the oil primer using my usual foundation brush (I chose a matte foundation to see how it worked with the oil primer) I did find that I wasn’t using as much foundation as normal, and yes the glow of the primer came through alright, it’s really quite attractive too. I love this! And no, there are no flecks of gold stuck to my face making it all glittery. My skin looks dewy, not oily and it certainly doesn’t feel oily either.
Thank you for stopping by today.
