SKINDINAVIA The Makeup Primer Spray

Skindinavia's new launch is their Makeup Primer Spray ($35;, a lightweight primer mist that helps with melt-proof makeup, while prepping skin by creating a clean canvas. The Makeup Primer Spray comes in two variants - a regular version for normal/dry skin types and an oil-control version. So far, I've tried the regular version and here are some quick thoughts. Skindinavia was also kind enough to include a sample of the oil-free version, which I'm yet to try out myself, but I'll be sure to update this post when I do. *Press Sample

I love the convenience of a makeup primer spray and the concept is perfect for someone like me who doesn't bother with priming most of the time. Its an easy step that really does make a difference in the way my makeup stays on. I just spray a couple of spritzes across my face (Skindinavia recommends spritzing it in an "X" and "T" fashion to cover the entire face) and pat the rest on. You can leave it to absorb/dry on its own too. I did notice a very mild, slightly chemical scent that dissipated pretty quickly. As for the primer itself, it does make my pores look smaller and my face just a tad matte. The real difference though is how long my makeup lasted.

I tested this for the first time while I was out in the sun on a slightly hot day (definitely not 90 degrees hot) and my face and eye makeup did look pretty fresh and neat even after a good 7 hours or so. I've also used it a few times since and loved the way it holds everything in place - my foundation din't vanish and my blush was still there after a few hours. Although my face was looking quite matte before makeup, it din't make my skin look flat matte at the end, which I quite like. Overall, I love it and definitely think its something I'll reach out to it more than I do with the other face primers/gels. There's also no slick feeling which is a huge plus. It does have alcohol listed as one of the top ingredients, but I don't bother with primers on an everyday basis, so that's not a big deal for me. If you do, that is one to keep in mind. That apart, its definitely worth trying out and is also free of parabens & silicones.
