One of my favourite reasons to sign up to monthly subscription boxes are that they always seem to send you great products that I would never had brought myself. Especially the more expensive and designer brands as I much prefer the bargain brands.
Well in last month's Glossybox, we were all kindly send Hylamide Pore Delete Instant Surface Perfector which for me was definitely one of those products I would never have brought for myself. Mainly for it's £18 price tag!
I was a little unsure on this product to start with as most primer type products I've used in the past have all said to apply BEFORE make-up. But the Hylamide advise you to apply after applying liquid foundation. Is it just me or is that weird?
Anyway in picture one I applied to half of my face after applying my normal foundation and matte-wise I didn't really notice much of a difference. So much so that I can't even tell you what side of my face I actually applied it to. I did however notice that my pores looked a lot smoother and to not big it up too much, invisible.
Since I have quite oily skin, I always look nice and matte but normally after a few hours my make-up starts to slip, quite literally as well. Amazingly after a few hours my face was still quite shine-free so that in my book is a win!
Overall I would say I'm quite impressed with this perfector. Not only did it mattify my skin and hide my ugly pores, but the lasting time is amazing. I did say above that the price tag is a little steep for me but after seeing such great results, I might just purchase another bottle.
