Anna Sui is a brand that would usually be above my price range, so when I scored this little mini of their Gel Foundation Primer in a Birchbox Beauty Kit, I leapt for joy. When it comes to primer’s I have two requirement’s that I look for, pore filling/diffusing or radiant/dewy, I love the healthy look of glowing, radiant skin, but I also need a hand in diminishing the look of my pores and fine lines. The Anna Sui Gel Foundation Primer fits into both of the categories, it is a hydrating primer which helps promote a radiant, glassy, supple and dewy complexion, as well as being a thick, creamy consistency that blurs the look of any skin texture. The consistency and texture of the Gel Foundation Primer is inspired by the French Dessert ‘Blancmange’ making this such a fun and unique product to have in any beauty collection.
Anna Sui Gel Foundation Primer comes in one universal shade to fit all, and blends seamlessly into the skin. As with all primers this can be worn alone, or under makeup, and works with all product formula’s from liquid’s to creams to powders. I love using this primer as part of my everyday makeup routine and even for special events, my makeup applies like a dream and stays all day and into the night, it also sits well with both water and oil based skincare products without too much movement or hard-work. Overall, I really love this little pot of joy and I will be deeply saddened when the day comes for it to join the land of empties.
