I won a competition on Twitter to win a selection of make up from Sarah G Cosmetics. I was sent some very nice products, and today I’m going to show you my favourite item, the Mineral Tinted Face Primer. The primer comes in a pump action bottle, which makes it easy to use.
I’ve never used a primer before, but I’ve been wanting to try one out for a while. Primers create a perfect base to apply your foundation, by evening out your skin tone and smoothing the skin.
“This mineral primer is full of natural ingredients and is lightweight and silky,it melts into the skin with a hint of colour that suits most skin types. It can be worn on its own to give skin a glow or as a perfect prep for foundation to ensure makeup glides on flawlessy and lasts all day and night!”
The Sarah G tinted primer has a lotion-like consistency and a hint of colour to make your skin look more radiant. I also think it smells like cinnamon! Yummy.

These images show my skin in three stages. Naturally my skin tone was uneven and you could see my pores. After using the primer, my skin looked smoother and the pores less visible. With the addition of my usual make up, Rimmel 25 Hour foundation (shade True Nude 303), 2True powder (shade 3), Collection 2000 Bronzer, and Miners Blush Stick, my skin looks almost flawless and matte.

Overall I feel that the primer does make a noticeable difference. It makes my skin feel very smooth and looks much less uneven. My foundation goes onto the primer smoothly and they both work together to create a light, even look. I like that the primer is tinted, as it adds a bit of colour to my face without being heavy. It isn’t greasy or oily, but it isn’t thick either. It helps to mattify my skin and creates a perfect base for my make up. I would recommend this for any skin type, as it is suitable for all types. My skin is very dry, and I found this to be quite moisturising
Sarah G Cosmetics sells this Mineral Tinted Primer for £20 from their website.
