If there is one thing I can't live without when it comes to makeup, it has got to be a primer. I always look on in horror when I see people skipping priming their face when applying makeup - it is an absolute must in my book. I actually remember once redoing my entire face of makeup because I'd forgotten to put my primer on - yes, that is just how important it is to me. 

So, when I heard Clinique were releasing a selection of 'SuperPrimers', I was most definitely intrigued. Available in six different formulas; one universal and five tinted for different skin types and needs, there literally is a primer for everyone. I've heard a lot of fantastic things about Clinique's skincare and makeup, so I was really excited to try one of their new primers. Over the past few weeks I've been trialing the 'Universal Face Primer', which is suitable for all skin types. I have to say - I'm really, really impressed. I love how the Universal Primer goes on un-tinted, so you could literally just be applying your moisturiser, but leaves your skin feeling amazingly soft and velvety. I find some primers a little greasy upon application but this one is a treat to apply, and melts into my skin beautifully.  

Once on my skin, the primer feels incredible and it makes applying my foundation a dream. Ever struggled with foundation application? One of the reasons I love this primer so much is because it makes applying my foundation totally flawless and fuss-free, without any patchiness. Another reason is because it makes my foundation last so much better than it would on its own, with no shininess or oil showing through as the day goes on. Before I discovered primers I would always have to patch up my makeup during the day but this primer means that that just isn't necessary. 

I adore this primer and it is definitely a new staple in my makeup bag. I literally do not ever wear foundation without applying primer first and this one is a total treat to use - it works completely in sync with my foundation, making the perfect pairing for flawless skin. 

NEW Clinique Superprimer Face Primers are available in one universal formula and five tinted formulas designed for specific skin care needs. 30ml RRP £20.00 / €27.00
