Revlon PhotoReady prime + anti -shine balm review

Hi everyone,

I know this is a bit (read a lot) late but exams have been crazy however I have part 1 of my crazy boots 3 for 2 mini haul. I would have done them all together but I prefer to do more in depth reviews, unless you prefer them altogether- sound off in the comments below. Now, on with the post.

A while ago, I looked like Rudolph the red nose reindeer, the one with the big, massive, shiny red nose. In fact several people pointed it out and decided to sing the song. I do mean a while ago as I discovered powder and concealer in the magic shop, that is boots. I have to admit sometimes I do put too much on, so you can see the powder - not the flawless base I wanted.  However I heard about a balm that could be the answer. It goes by the name Revlon PhotoReady prime + anti-shine balm. 

I have to say after trying it for a bit, I have fallen in love with it. However, I'm not loving the wear time. It lasts on my face, for about 5 hours. That's good. However around my nose it lasts about 2 hours...max. However the packaging is good, as it makes it so easy to reapply. Easier than ABC ;) . It is also very sturdy ,and this makes it one less thing to worry about in my make up bag.

The product is a little on the pricey side, as it retails for £9.99. However it is surprising how much coverage it gives. I wear it with and without my make up on.

It does prime like it says it does, and it makes my cc cream so much easier to apply.

Product - 4
Packaging - 5
Price - 3.5

After my love - hate relationship with powder, I think I've finally found the answer. Will you be trying out this balm, or sticking to your trusty powder? Tell me what you think in the comments below.
