Review: Paul & Joe Pearl Foundation Primer

Thursday, January 16, 2014

 The world of primers can many times seem overwhelming. There are so many kinds targeting different concerns; mattifying, illuminating, pore filling, long lasting, color correcting, and the list goes on. Paul & Joe's Pearl Foundation Primer is geared towards adding luminosity and reflecting light while also aiding in the longevity of your makeup. The multi-colored pearls are suspended in a gel that when applied to the skin creates a lightly tacky canvas, making foundation adhere to the skin. 

The pearls are crushed as they are pumped through the dispenser, and when finally on your skin, they have created a multi-dimensional sheen that adds the perfect glow under your foundation. It is only the slightest bit glittery and thus I wouldn't recommend this primer for mature skin, but rather if you are in your late 20's to early 40's, since larger glitter particles attract attention to fine lines and wrinkles. Also, I wouldn't recommend this primer for oily skin-types as it doesn't claim to mattify or provide any kind of oil control. 

I have really been enjoying this primer for the last few months under my Liole Triple the Solution BB Cream & my Shiseido Perfect Refining Foundation. Let's not forget how precious and adorable the packaging is. This pretty little bottle sits front and center on my vanity! Definitely check out this great primer if you are looking to add a little glow and help your foundation last all day.
