REVIEW: Sephora's Ultra Smoothing Primer

Hey guys!
Hope you all had a great weekend. Today I'm going to be reviewing Sephora's Ultra Smoothing Primer - which surprisingly (considering its not a top brand) is actually fantastic!
I decided I would buy this product after my previous shop to Sephora, where they dumped a huge amount of samples in my bag (benefits of being apart of their membership- which I strongly recommend you get!), and this primer happened to be in there.
For me personally, I prefer a very thick primer just because I often suffer from dry skin (ugh) and a thick primer is the only thing that can consolidate it. So at first I was a little bit sceptical of the Sephora primer, but once I opened it I was very very presently surprised!!
Cost: $15 (WOHOO!)
Recommendation: 4.5/5
Benefits of the product: 
No oily
Great for dry skin tones
Easy to apply
Lasts all day - holds your makeup

Full review below:

Alright, let's get started!

So, primer's are very important in your makeup regime if your wanting a good even base to work on, and if your wanting your makeup to last all day long. Thats why it's so important to find the one that works the best for you particularly. And trust me, there are loads and loads of options on the market, so that's why I was so utterly relieved to have found this product!

In all seriousness, I don't really have anything super bad to say about the Sephora Primer.
It's cheap, effective, works well, has all the right qualities and yeah, its just all roundedly (yep, cool that's not really a work, buttttt ok.) great!

I'm thinking that the only downside to this product would probably be if you weren't really looking for a thick primer, but for a more cream/moisturiser constancy like product (thin).
But really, thats not something bad about the product itself, just to do more with personal preference.

Oh you know what, another slight downside would be that you do need to apply quite a lot to your face, just because it doesn't spread out very far- but that's pretty much what happens when you use a thick primer anyway. I apply this primer with a flat foundation brush, just because its quick and easy and I find that this type of brush picks up an deposits the product on my face well.

Haha I don't actually have all that much to say about the product, sorry peeps!
But, if you leave here with one note from this article/review, it should be that this product is definitely worth every cent you spend on it (not that you even have to spend that much, because it is most certainly on the cheap side for a primer) and so much more! 

Have a fab day, and have fun buying this new awesome product!
