Sometime in November 2011, I attended Elite Cosmetics makeup launch in Malaysia and today I’m going to review one of the product which was given to me in the door gift bag.
I was delighted to received a Elite Fantastic Primer in my door gift bag as the MUA was promoting this during the makeover. Fantastic Primer comes in a 15ml glass bottle which is so hard that it didn’t broke when I accidentally dropped the bottle not once but 3 times lol! It is retailing at RM42.90. Elite cosmetics products are made in Italy and available exclusively at Watsons Malaysia. It is not available anywhere else as Watsons is the sole importer for the brand.
A make up base that matifies, hydrates and enegises. Hydration of the upper layers of the epidermis.
Water (Aqua), Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Dimenthicone Crosspolymer, PVP, Polyacrylamide, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Laureth-7, Methylparaben, Disodium EDTA, Parfum (Fragrance), Plankton Extract
There’s no written instruction on how to apply this.
This make up base or primer some might called it is in gel form. I’ve never use any gel form make up base before.
I usually pump about 3 to 4 pumps on my palm, warm it with both hands and gently apply onto my face after skin care and sun block. Sometimes I gently swipe on and sometimes I press onto my face. I wanted to try out which works better for my skin type and I find that it doesn’t make any different. This is how the gel looks like after spreading. It will melt into your skin as soon as you put it on your face. Which is pretty amazing.
Oh welllll, hmmm… on the first day I paired this with MUFE High Definition Foundation and it works well in making my face appear less oilier than usual. I’m not sure if it’s this make up base or it’s the foundation so I tried this with different foundation and sad to say this is not the one which has been making my face more matte than usual =(. For me it doesn’t hydrate or energise my skin. I have my Clarins HydraQuench Cream-Gel on which is doing the hydrating job for the skin.
1) Affordable for those who are new to make up.
2) Superb for normal skin type.
3) Scent-less and melt into skin immediately.
4) Available at Watsons stores which is easily to find.
5) Better in performance if to compare with Clarins Instant Light Complexion Perfector!
Not at the moment as I wanted to try other make up base in the market. My next try would be Laura Mercier ones.
