ʙᴀᴛᴛʟᴇ ᴏꜰ ᴛʜᴇ ᴘʀɪᴍᴇꜱᴛ: Rimmel London vs No Poreblem

Hello everyone, since I had the luxury of testing out the latest Touch in Sol Tester Bag, I found a product in there that really captured all I could ever need in a primer. No Poreblem has been something I keep reaching for currently and it made me think; 'what was life like before you?' So, I thought it would be quite a fun post to compare two very different primers together. One I love vs one I was currently using because I got it on clearance. In truth, I thought I found a gem before No Poreblem but let's see how well these two hold up in a BATTLE OF THE PRIMEST....Now, I'm not going to be biased because I currently love the new one. I want to be thorough in my battle here. With solid proof AND evidence. Maybe my love for No Poreblem is a love found in hast, perhaps the old primer has been forgotten...whatever the reason, it's time to see who is worthy of my wear~!

Rimmel London Fix&ProtectNow, the reason I grabbed this Rimmel Primer to begin with wasn't just because I found it in the discount bin at Walmart. (Haha) In truth, I wanted this specific primer because I heard so much about it--finding it for 3 dollars was just icing on the cake! Lol

The pros about this product are: Pore Minimizing, Moisturizing and Mattifying. With Sun Protection and promises to 'perfect' the sure you could see why I was curious. (I'm a simple woman, I see pore reduction promises--I instantly wanna try!! Hahaa)

But the first thing I noticed now that I can compare it with something else--it is so much thinner in comparison. Almost like watered down milk. It also gave me a rather sticky/glossy appearance despite the matte claims.

NO  POREBLEMThe difference in quality is very obvious. The texture is very apparent, too. Where Rimmel London failed to matte, No Poreblem did in spades. 

If you didnt see my post about No Poreblem, you should definitely check it out HERE. I get into pretty good detail about the primer. I don't want to repeat myself here. But to sum it down--the photos don't lie.

THE  COMPARISONI mentioned the consistency--Rimmel is ten times thinner than No Poreblem. It has a feel that is stickier and slimmer, in my opinion. The Fragrance for them both are different, as well. Rimmel being reminiscent of Sunscreen and No Poreblem a light floral.The only notable thing I seen (that I didnt before) with Rimmel was that the primer has a bit of glitter hidden inside the formula. A tactic most primers do use to give you a false hope of working, especially in photographs. The glitter bounces light off the skin surface to pretend a flawless appearance. (Probably not too healthy for my large pores!) Not a huge deal, especially if you plan to only use this for photography but in comparison to a primer like No Poreblem where it goes above and beyond to actually soften my enlarged pores to the extent of them being invisible just does not compare.

LET'S POWDER THE CONTENDERS As you can plainly see, powdering them helped a lot. Gave both of them a good 'matte' look instead of using them alone. Despite all of that, Rimmel still kept some of the shine compared to No Poreblem.

SMILE/WRINKLE  TESTThis test was essential for me, at least--I tend to have varied facial expressions and sometimes my makeup can really show my wrinkles. I wanted to see if the primers could help with the creasing/wrinkling/pores/etc. As mentioned above, Rimmel is all about glitter because I did this test without my studio lights on and the pores on Rimmel's side showed right up to this party. Hahaa No Poreblem was so much better in comparison.

THE  VERDICTNo Poreblem wins hands down. All the evidence and photos clearly proves that. It gave me smoothe, clear, poreless results where Rimmel London only pretends to do. I definitely will be continuing my usage with the winning primer! 

Thank you for viewing and joining me on this beauty journey. I hope you got something out of this...or at the very least, were entertained. Now I must ask...Are you not...entertained? No? Well...This. is. SPARTA!! *Kicks Rimmel into hole* wrong movies, I know. Hahaa xoxo

    Another Great review. You should do this for a living or do you do this for a living? I agree with you on the No Poreblem Primer also. It's a awesome product that works for oily skin great. I think its going to last a while also. I've been using it every since I received it and a little goes a long way. I love that in a product.
