Primer Showdown: Glassy Skin Balm vs. No Poreblem! When to use what?
I’m doing a showdown between 2 Touch In Sol Primers! A side-by-side application and wear test under my favorite concealer will definitely help me make my mind up.
👀Initial Application 👀
Pretty Filter Glassy Skin Balm
💖Basics- Thick creamy texture, blends out fast, light floral scent
💖Finish - very dewy, slightly sticky
💖Concealer - Applied very smoothly, provided more grip for the concealer, not slippery or patchy, made the concealer more hydrating
No Poreblem Primer
💖Basics- Ligh pink gel texture, blends out to a smooth waxy feel, similar to other pore-filling primers’ texture, little to no scent
💖Finish - soft matte, non-sticky
💖Concealer - Applied at normal speed, not patchy as all, created a subtle self-setting effect
⏳4 Hour Wear Test + Verdict (no setting powder) ⏳
Pretty Filter Glassy Skin Balm - still very hydrated, slight creasing, coverage wore off very evenly, not patchy
This would be really nice under setting powder to keep the skin hydrated and prevent the powder from getting patchy.
No Poreblem Primer - still soft-matte, retained coverage pretty well, got a little patchy on the inner-corner (most likely due to me wearing glasses)
This would be an ideal primer if I don’t wear concealer with power, or if I choose a concealer that creases easily. I would need to set it with setting spray or be careful with smudging/rubbing.
