No7 Airbrush Away Primer

How’s your primer treating you? Do you even use a primer?

I can hear you now

you don’t have time for primer. You’re a busy mom, you have to get to work and let’s not even talk about the laundry waiting on you. I hear ya…

but….

girls this primer businesses is important.

Just to keep things honest I haven’t always believed that primer was an important step in my beauty routine.

Yes, I know. I’ve heard it many many times.

Bloggers and makeup people everywhere will claim the importance of this particular product. Me though, I just felt like it was an extra step I didn’t have time for. 

I was wrong.

Maybe it isn’t so much a case of my being wrong as it was a case that I just hadn’t tried the right kind of primer. That’s the case with a lot of beauty and hair products. Sometimes we have to actually try the product or find the right product to change our opinions. 

I try REALLY hard to be super honest with you here in this newsletter, on my blog, in real life, or in anything I post on social media…in general I am ALWAYS honest. Why? Simple,  your trust is so important to me. You can count on me to tell you my honest opinion about something. 

So, when I say I was wrong to not use a primer before I mean it.

I was wrong

My makeup looks 1,000 times better when I use a primer. Primers like anything else in life aren’t made the same and the one you choose to use is SO important. 

Up until I tried this primer I would have said there was only ONE primer worthy of using form the drugstore. I have ONE favorite.

That’s it

ONE

No7 Airbrush Away Primer

I got this, along with some other fun stuff, in a gift set at Christmas. I honestly wasn’t expecting much since my experience with drugstore primers wasn’t great {remember that ONE primer thing}.

However, I was willing to keep an open mind because No7 is a great company. I am LOVING many of the other products I received in that gift set and I can’t wait to tell you all about them. 

Have you ever heard of it?

No7 It’s one of those companies I like to refer to as a “boutique” drugstore brand. It was started in 1935 and is located in the UK. They are heavy into skincare and infuse their products with several innovative formulas. Their founding principle is to bring premium products to women at an affordable price. 

Remember when I mentioned that they love to infuse their makeup products with skincare ingredients. This one is infused with Hyaluronic Acid. If you have been following me for any length of time then you know that I LOVE that stuff. It really works. I am a huge believer in it and I’m willing to try all kinds of products with it as a main ingredient. 

This is silicone free and hypoallergenic making it a good choice for anyone with sensitive skin.

To me this is kind of like a hybrid.

A mix of a “silicone-y” creamy kinda thing. It glides on your skin and dries matte creating a great foundation for the rest of your makeup. It is easy to use and dries quick.

Now for the truth

How does the No7 Airbrush Away Primer match up to the
e. l. f Poreless Putty Primer?

Not gonna lie girls {remember that honesty speech}…

e.l.f. Poreless Primer is my OG…my favorite…my one and only…the primer that changed my opinion on primers. So, that’s some big shoes to fill.

I don’t like this one better

but

I didn’t hate it either. It’s good. It’s kind of a mixture of a putty with a lotion. It goes on a little smoother than the e. l. f. one but it also doesn’t “fill” in my pores as well as the e. l. f. 

I find myself reaching for this one on lighter makeup days and the e. l. f. one when I’m going full makeup. I enjoy having both because I LOVE makeup. 

If I had to choose between the two I’d definitely go for the e.l.f Poreless Primer. If the store was out of that one I’d choose this one. 

Definitely give this one a try if you weren’t satisfied with the e. l. f. or if you are looking for a lighter version. If your pores are smaller this would be a good option for you as well.
