The New CID Primer
The New CID Primer* is undoubtedly the best primer I’ve used, even over the Benefit Porefessional. It’s so smooth and silky and glides on like a dream. I feel I need a primer when I’m at work as it’s quite a long day for your makeup to be on. With the primer my makeup lasts that extra few hours that can sometimes save me when I’m in a rush to go somewhere after work.
The packaging is sleek from the outside box to the product packaging itself. It took me a while to figure out how to get the product out but the silver part twists up which is a great design, when I throw things in my travel bag when I stay at my boyfriends sometimes products pump themselves. Brilliant example of this was when I was on holiday my fake tan had pumped itself all over my toiletries, lovely!
The consistency is quite thick, which is deceiving as it’s so easy to work with and dries quite quickly before I put my foundation and concealer over the top. It’s in no way greasy and feels quite refreshing when I put it on when I’ve woken up. It’s a great base layer to work with and will definitely be re-purchasing it when I’ve ran out.
I’ve been using this for approx 1 month and hardly used any, a little goes a long way. I’ve stopped using my porefessional completely unless I need full coverage makeup, in which case I’ll use that over the top over the i-prime.
