Makeup Review: New York Color Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer


So I don’t use primer. But I should use primer, because my pores are horrid. Because I’m cheap, I bought this primer. I mean, it’s NYC, and I liked the products that I’ve used in the past, so I thought this would be a good purchase. 

Nope, not even a little bit good. Bad. Very bad purchase. Horrible purchase. Thank goodness it was only like, $3 or something.

This primer is watery, and, um, sparkly. Now, as mentioned above, I don’t use primer, so I don’t really know what it’s like, but I’m pretty sure it shouldn’t be sparkly. 

Have a look at my hands.On the left, it’s not blended in much at all, so it’s very sparkly. But on the right, it’s completely blended into my skin….still sparkly! 


It also stinks. Like glue. I’m serious, it smells like Elmer’s Glue. So, so weird.

And, okay, here’s the really weird part, it balled up on my skin and flaked off. SO FREAKING WEIRD, RIGHT?! I don’t know if it’s my skin, or because I tend to have dry skin (the product says “for all skin types”, so that shouldn’t matter), but the more I tried to rub it into my face, the more it balled up–you know how eraser looks after you use it on your paper? The little eraser flecks? That’s exactly what this did on my skin! It just came right off in weird little flecks.

So, yeah, no. I won’t be using this again. I suppose I need to spend some money for a quality primer, huh? Okay, okay, lesson learnt. 😉
