The shade is 001 Apricot (but there is only one shade available)
What it does: (from Rimmel's website)
Create a perfect canvas for foundation application. - Skin Perfecting primer smoothes and evens out your complexion - prolongs the wear of your foundation - Minimizes Pores
Price: approx $7.59 (from Ulta.com)
- This REALLY worked! It made my face feel smooth and was a GREAT base for my foundation!
- Very easy to smooth onto my face. The texture is somewhere between a cream and a silicone gel
- The shade made it almost like a tinted moisturizer for me. If I had less flaws, I would probably be able to wear just this.
- The color. If you are light-skinned, your face may look orange. It did not leave any noticeable orangeness on my skin. For reference, I'm around an NC25.
Swatched heavily (yes, it really is this orange)
I loved this, but I can easily see why it would not work for many people considering the color of the product. I was very surprised when I first squeezed out the product since I was expecting something clear or white. It blends into nothing for me, but I would be wary of the color if my skin were lighter.
However, other than the color, I have nothing bad to say about this product! It worked fabulously for me! I love the texture even more than the Monistat Chafing Gel I've been using. It makes my foundation last very long and keeps it from getting oily!
I could not find this in the UK. This is very strange, because as far as I know, Rimmel is a UK brand. Please let me know if you can find it!
Would I (re)purchase: Yes! I'm planning to buy a backup when I'm in Hawaii (in a few days!!!!)
I'm going to Hawaii in a few days. What do you suggest I buy at the drugstore? What about at Sephora?
