Wow, it feels good to be back! I’ve been MIA for a couple weeks now, but I am slowly getting my schedule back on track. There’s so many things going on in my life right now, BUT, we’re not here to talk about that. I’m just happy to be back here again. Anyway, I just want to quickly share with you one of my absolute favorite beauty discoveries this year – the Innisfree No Sebum Blur Primer.
If you’re like me who have oily skin, you will definitely love this. I got this primer off of Althea Korea for 450php (if my memory serves me right). I got it mainly because it says No Sebum. But does it really control oil? Let’s find out.
A closer look at the Innisfree No Sebum Blur Primer
First of all, I love how simple and straightforward the packaging is. I always appreciate products that come in tubes because they’re easier to store and carry around. The only downside is, the tube isn’t transparent, so you can’t really see how much product is left. It’s not a deal breaker though because the product itself is pretty amazing.
The product may look tinted, but it is actually translucent once applied. Formula feels like silicone and it reminds me of the Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser and Quick FX No Shine Mattifier (the yellow sachet ones that you can find at Watsons). Although Inisfree is a lot more airy and lightweight. It does have a slight earthy, minty scent that doesn’t really bother me. You know how the Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder smells like? That’s the same exact scent of this primer.
As for performance, I do love how it smoothens and evens out the texture of my skin, making my liquid base apply smoothly and flawlessly. It also helps my base stick better to my skin. My foundation/bb cream doesn’t move around as much, compared to when I don’t use primer underneath.
I would say though that it doesn’t really blur out my pores. Well, maybe it does, but ever so slightly. However, I find that it really does help control oil, especially on my T-zone area. Normally, I would oil up 2 hours after applying my makeup, but with this primer I can go up to 4-5 hours without blotting.
If I have to be honest, I would say this isn’t really the best oil control primer out there. I know you can still find better alternatives that works way better than this. But for the price, you’re definitely getting your money’s worth. If you’re on a budget and you’re looking for an affordable oil control primer, I would highly recommend the Innisfree No Sebum Blur Primer.
P.S. What’s your favorite primer?
