THE MAKE-UP: RIMMEL FIX + PERFECT PRIMER


Some may call them unnecessary, others may call them a necessity, today I am talking about make-up primer, specifically the Fix and Perfect from Rimmel.

I bought this primer on a whim whilst shopping in the discount beauty store Xtra's.
The primer usually retails in Boots for £3.49 however I found mine for £1.

I have to say that Rimmel is one of my favourite drugstore make-up brands so I was looking forward to seeing how this primer worked alongside my skin and foundation.

I have the shade 001 which is the lightest of the range.
The primer is intended to minimise pores, smooth the skin and even out your complexion.

Upon first impressions I found that the colour of the primer is a little interesting, it is bright orange and when I say bright I mean tangerine, this soon dissapears when it is blended fully into the skin.

The consistency of the primer is a little like a mousse, it is dry and seperates upon contact with the skin.

I found that when I wear the primer underneath my foundation my skin looks smoother and more even, I can't say that my foundation lasts any longer because of wearing it but I do like how it reduces the oil on my face throughout the day, it is a real matifying product.

Overall, I do like this primer but I don't think that it is good enough to replace my favourite primer from Murad, if you want a very affordable primer with satisfactory results then I would encourage you to give fix and perfect a try.

Which primer do you use?

  1. Lovely post. I have the Fix and Protect Pro in 002 and this sounds similar although it doesn't come out tangerine but a pearly pink! X

  3. I used to use a Body Shop one, which I loved but it got discontinued and have never tried the new one! This one sounds reasonable for a pound but I might do a bit of research on the Murad one!
    Great review :)
