It melts into skin in a matter of seconds to leave your complexion looking and feeling hydrated, as well as creating a barrier between skin and makeup. The barrier helps makeup to sit better on the skin, preventing caking and allowing it to blend perfectly, as well as keeping it in place all day. Although when applied directly to skin it can feel a little sticky, this is only to aid the barrier process - if you apply foundation direct to your skin it can often be absorbed into the dry patches and float on top of the oily sections, leaving the end result looking and feeling patchy. A lot of primers are too heavy if you're not used to wearing various layers of cosmetics, so this is a perfect solution to getting the best results in a very light all-in-one product. You need such a teeny tiny amount that this will last you for a significant period of time, ensuring your makeup looks ace for as long as you want it to. I'm really enjoying using this and have already integrated it into my makeup routine seamlessly - it's sure to be an Ilamasqua cult product in the making.
