Pixi Flawless & Poreless Primer Review

Way back in July, I was kindly gifted the Flawless & Poreless primer from Pixi Beauty by the lovely people at the British Style collective. This was the first ever Pixi product I'd tried and I'm officially obsessed with their primers (a true beauty godsend!), so I thought I would finally write a review of it to tell you all about it and how much I'm loving it.

I'm gonna admit a cardinal sin as an amateur beauty blogger that until I found this Pixi primer I've actually not used a primer under my foundation since a GOSH silicone primer years and years ago. In all honesty, my skin has never got along with most foundation primers on the market which I think is all down to the primers I tried being silicone primers (my skin hates those!). 

The Pixi Flawless & Poreless primer has been a foundation primer revolution for me! Back in August, I decided pre-work that I should probably dig it out of my BSC goody bag and test it out. Pixi call this primer their miracle-in-a-tube product, helping to smooth out fine lines and hydrate your skin whilst making your pores disappear. To give this primer a fair test, I kept everything else in my makeup routine the same so I could notice exactly how the primer was improving my skin and makeup and boy was I impressed!

When first applied, it comes out as a pink, flesh-toned colour however it very quickly blends out and becomes translucent for silky, shine-free base. I tend to get some pores around my nose and chin and this blends beautifully into my skin giving me that oh so sought after poreless skin effect. As many of you may know, I am now a critical care nurse and as a result, work very long shifts (13.5 hours with an hour of travelling either way). I've found this primer perfect for keeping my foundation on my face for my entire shift (it normally comes off on my collar or comes off when I touch my face), it also helps keeps my skin shine-free throughout my entire shift which is a massive feat! I'm normally prone to dry, flaky skin (particularly in the colder months) and this primer has combatted any dry patches I use to get at the end of a long day full of air conditioner. 

I am totally in love with this primer, it has totally changed my whole mindset on primers. I have since bought another bottle as well as 2 other primers to test out and compare (although they have very big shoes to attempt to fill). I'd highly recommend getting your hands on a bottle, you'll soon be in love with it too!

Have you tried any Pixi products?

Speak to you next time!
