Primer: Catrice Prime and Fine

In the last few months I have gone slightly obsessed with primer. I now own a good few so I will be doing a mini primer series on my new obsession! First up we have Catrice Prime and Fine. I picked it up in a local chemist for the bargain price of €5.64. 

Since their introduction to the Irish market the quality of Catrice's products has increased dramatically. The brand launched a new look last year and their products are now not only extremely affordable but they also look great. Catrice Prime and Fine is designed to smooth and refine pores and lines. It is also a great base for make up. 

My hand is slightly tanned from my holiday but usually the primer still blends to the colour of my skin.
The primer comes in a 14g tub which for the price is excellent value. The fact that it is in a tub also means you can control exactly how much you want to use. I find sometimes with tubes I squeeze too much product out. The primer itself is quite thick and is a white/ cream colour. As I am really pale I find this primer really works well with my skin. As it is quite thick it covers really well and leaves the skin extremely silky, a perfect base for foundation. Overall I loved this primer! A brilliant price, nice packaging and most importantly it worked well. I would definitely buy it again. 

What is your favourite primer?

  1. How does it feel? I've stuck with my GOSH primer for years because it makes my skin feel like velvet! I've also never used a coloured primer before, I clearly need to branch out!



  2. I've been using this one for a few weeks now and really like it. It's very similar to the Clarins PErfecting Touch but a much better price

    1. Oh really? It's amazing for the price isn't it!

  3. Oh think I need this! Does it help control shine?

    1. I'm not sure, I don't usually have a problem with shine so I wouldn't notice sorry!
