Arbonne Makeup Primer Review

Arbonne Makeup Primer 
Claims: "Visually diminishes the appearance of fine lines and pores, creating a canvas for flawless makeup application."
Packaging: 5 out of 5
Review: I thought I liked the Benefit Porefessional primer. Now, I am in love with this primer. If you thought Porefessional was good, this is many times better. It really smooths out my skin, creating the perfect base for foundation. I have paired this primer with my L'Oreal Lumi Magique foundation and they're a match made in heaven! My skin looked flawless and more importantly, it stayed that way for hours. On one occasion, I was at a party where the bar area of stuffy and the dance floor was packed with people and was quite hot (in the temperature sense!). Even in my semi-drunken state, I could tell that my face makeup was very much intact when I got home at 1am in the morning.

Let's take a moment to admire the excellent packaging this product comes in. It comes with a pump, which is wonderful in terms of hygiene. The plastic bottle itself is sturdy and looks sleek and "professional" (for the lack of a better word to describe its appeal).

This is not a full pump. It's to show you the consistency.
One pump is plenty to cover your entire face. My gripe with Porefessional is that when you apply it, it does not spread. It sticks to the first area you touched. With the Arbonne Makeup Primer, you can smooth and spread it all over your face evenly and to your hearts desire. To me, that's an important quality for a primer because it then enables the foundation to be applied smoothly and evenly, thus given the appearance of flawlessness.

I am thoroughly enjoying this primer. I will be repurchasing it when I run out but I believe it will be a while away since such small amounts go a long way each time! If you're interested in this product you can check it out here.

For my American readers, you can purchase the product from here or contact a consultant here.

Have you ever tried Arbonne products before?

  6. Ohh it looks quite gel like doesn't it? No wonder it's easier to smooth out! But I'm still surprised that, that's all you need for your entire face!

    1. Sorry about the confusion Valentine. That's not a full pump in the picture! It's just to show you the consistency! I didn't want to waste a full pump for a photo.

  7. Great post! I'm very intrigued by the Arbonne products, I think once I finish my other two primers i'll give this a go.

    1. Thank you, Imi! Yes, give this a go if you find that primers are a must in your makeup routine!

  8. This is one of my favourite primers! I absolutely love how long lasting it is! Good review :)

  9. This brand isn't well known here in the US, but this sounds promising. Thanks for the review!
