If you are a regular reader of my blog you’d know that from the very day I was introduced to the brand Arbonne I absolutely feel in love with the products, and I so wish that I’d come across it earlier. I have tried a few different products by now and a few remains my favourites, including the RE9 Anti-Ageing range for face and body, the Got You Covered Mineral Foundation, and the Arbonne Perfecting Liquid Foundation, the ladder which is nothing short of amazing. And I don’t think that I am the only one thinking that – you know, in my just over two years of blogging I have done over 750 posts, and my review of the Arbonne Perfecting Liquid Foundation is my second most read post, even in spite of being posted in January 2013, over two years ago!! If you haven’t yet seen it, you can see it here!
Anyway, when I was also asked to trial the Arbonne Makeup Primer, I naturally happily accepted, here are my thoughts;

What They Say:
Visually diminishes the appearance of fine lines and pores, creating a canvas for flawless makeup application.

RRP: $51 (30ml) – Available from Natalie Xylas, Independent Arbonne Consultant

What I Say:
With combination skin I am always struggling to get my makeup to stay put all day, and since discovering primers I have never looked back, as a good one simply means that I can avoid the dreaded shine by lunch time, and avoid that my makeup is simply sliding off my face.

The Arbonne Makeup Primer promises to provide a flawless looking complexion and texture while visible diminishing the look of fine lines and surface imperfection. It also helps minimise the appearance of pores and make the makeup last longer and stay true throughout the day.

It contains among others hyaluronic filling spheres to help prime the skin and create a soft canvas, as well as it contains horsetail extract, green tea leaf extract and grape seed extract to condition the skin as you wear it.

The silicone based primer comes in a stylish black pump bottle that makes it easy to dispense just the amount of product you need. The white primer has next to no scent and it has a silky soft texture and you only need the tiniest amount, in fact about a pea-sized amount for your whole face is more than sufficient. And I really like that it, unlike other primers I’ve tried, is so light and weightless. It absorbs into the skin instantly, leaving your skin feel silky soft and smooth, and you can see the improvement in the skin’s appearance immediately as it hides flaws in the skin.

Following with foundation, it is not only easier to apply, it simply glides on so much easier, I guess as all ‘nooks n’ crannies’ have already been filled by the primer. But I also feel that I need to use much less foundation to achieve the same evenness of my skin and cover pigmentation, redness and blemishes, all thanks to the primer. With the primer, my skin is simply looking more flawless than I could ever dream off.

But how did the primer perform. Even on a very hot and humid Melbourne day, I am impressed to say that my skin stayed looking matte all day, with absolutely no shine in sight. My makeup is simply looking just at nice at night as when I first apply it in the morning.

Overall this is an incredible primer, one of the best I’ve tried, as it simply helps me extend the life of my makeup and give me a more even, and smooth complexion. Highly recommended.

  1. I use the Arbone foundation but not the primer. I really like the foundation I can see why that post of yours is so popular! I was actually disappointed in their SPF 15+ face cream as I got sunburnt the first time I wore it and it wasnt even an overly hot day, so now I just wear it in the evenings but thats not what I bought it for :(
