Its been awhile since I posted a face primer hasn’t it glamour babes? Well, thats because I finally finished most of my ELF face primers, and figured to move on to a new one, which is Soap & Glory’s One Heck of a Blot Instant Perfecting Power Primer ($14 at Ulta). This Primer/Base is the pore-fect secret weapon to shine free skin. I should know! My skin gets pretty oily when it wants to and this pick was a good call on my part (pats on the back to me!). Formulated with shine bloc 12 hour matte spheres and pore shrink technology. One Heck of a Blot performs as a multi acting primer that helps: Diminish the appearance of pores
Control shine for 12 hours
Make your makeup last longer
Even out skin tone
Reduce the appearance of redness
Leaving you good to glow!
Ya just gotta love how the packaging entices you to buy this stuff! Lol.
All kidding aside, this primer really works, and I am happy I came across it. The texture of the primer itself has a creamy gel like consistency with a tinge of peach coloring that applies clear when blended into the skin; Making this perfect for all skin tones. It is also lightweight, smooth, applies evenly and easily, absorbs quickly, and doesn’t clog pores. It can be worn under or over makeup, or even by its lonesome self. There are times I don’t wear a whole lot of makeup, so, this is a nice buffer to have around when wanting to smooth out skins texture and minor surface imperfections without having to use all of the mediums. That being said, when makeup is applied skin looks absolutely flawless. I do have some slight redness from acne scarring, some large pores, and uneven skin tone, and this primer smoothed over everything. One heck of a blot reminds me of an invisible band-aid, healing everything no one, not even myself wants to see instantly. I didn’t exactly get 12 hours of shine control, it was more like 6, but it still kept my over productive sebaceous glands in check, and my makeup pristine for a full 10 hours. Oh yea, Soap & Glory and I rang in 2017 glowingly.
What do you think of Soap & Glory’s One Heck of a Blot Primer? Love or hate?
Stay beautiful! Xo.
