So Rimmel have launched 3 primers in different colours – one in Peach, one in Lilac and one in Green. Each meant to target a different skin issue I decided to pick up the one that perfectly targets the issue I have – the Rimmel Insta CC Primer in Green. These primers are £6.99 and come in a traditional squeezy tube with the colour clearly displayed on the front.
Meant to counteract redness, this primer has a green tint. Positive – the green doesn’t show up on your face, so you don’t look ill… or like you’re trying to be the hulk. Negative – the colour doesn’t show up at all. My face is just as red as before I apply it. Even after a few minutes while I let the skin settle after I’ve rubbed it. The whole green thing in this primer is a bit of a gimick to me.
In terms of a normal primer, it does help a little with pores and a tiny bit with foundation longevity.. however I really do believe there are much better primers out there. It kind of feels like one of those products that doesn’t really do much.
I’m not bashing the brand in anyway shape or form! Rimmel have some of my favourite foundations, powders and lipsticks and their recent Eyeshadow palette (the warm neutral one) is amazing! Just this one isn’t for me.
Have you tried this? If so, what are your thoughts?
