Try Out Tuesday – @beautyblender The Leveler Pore Minimizing Primer

March 31, 2020

Oh, how good it feels to wear makeup after not wearing it for a couple of days! Today, I’m testing out a sample I got of the @beautyblender The Leveler Pore Minimizing Primer ($32 for 1 ounce –!

What it claims:

🔘 This skin-smoothing primer contains niacinamide to help blur the appearance of redness, large pores, and uneven texture

🔘 High-performance silicones glide over skin and create a humidity-proof barrier to minimize shine and lock makeup in place for all-day—or all-night—wear

🔘 Free of sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, formaldehydes, formaldehyde-releasing agents, phthalates, mineral oil, retinyl palmitate, oxybenzone, coal tar, hydroquinone, triclosan, and triclocarban, and contains less than one percent of synthetic fragrances

🔘 This product is also cruelty-free and gluten-free

My experience:

🔘 I received a sample of the shade “Light/Medium.” It comes in two (2) shades and the other is “Tan/Deep.”

🔘 I used it under my foundation on the entire right side of my face.

👍🏻 The texture is really nice. It definitely feels like something that could fill your pores, but it was also creamy and worked into my skin with ease.

🔘 I wore it for over fifteen (15) hours, checking my face frequently to see how it was performing in comparison to the non-primed side of my face.

👍🏻 Early in the day, I could tell a slight difference in the smoothness of the right side of my face.

👎🏻 As the day went on, both sides began to look identical. They got the same amount of oily (which wasn’t a ton), appeared the same amount of even and wore for the same length of time.

My verdict?

Even though I like how this feels on my skin and did enjoy the initial smoothing out it gave me, the fact that, for a majority of the day, it performed identically to the un-primed side of my face means I won’t be purchasing the full size.

FYI, I receive a small commission when you shop via the link listed above. There is no additional cost to you.
