I’ve been testing Airbase Perfecting Primer for the last week, and as a general rule I am not a primer fan. However, I have to say that this one is very good. The texture feels rather silicone-y yet once it is on the skin it is lighter than air.. you can’t feel it at all. It glides over the skin easily and there is no stickiness.. it’s like putting a serum on your complexion.
The primer claims to soften fine lines and wrinkles and I must admit that I’ve stared and stared in the mirror, thinking, ‘has it or hasn’t it?’ and I genuinely can’t tell either way. What I definitely can tell is that it gives my base excellent longevity without the usual rub-off. Here, I would caution that it works best with a full foundation and is not quite so successful at keeping BB’s on… it does make them last longer, I think, but Airbase does impressive stuff with foundation.
When I look at Airbase Perfecting Primer’s ingredients, they’re using negatively charged Colloidal Platinum to maintain the electrical balance in the skin. Now, you would have to be properly, properly skin geeky for this to mean anything at all, and it doesn’t mean much to me, but what it does is align your skin cells in the same direction so that they increase the moisture intake. That, I do understand and would say that my skin feels very moisturised even by the end of the day.
So, while it is expensive at £44.95, a little goes a very long way – I can see it lasting several months at least. Find it HERE
