I was given a little sample pot of Nude by Nature Undercover Airbrush Primer when I went into my local Farmers store, when I was looking for a primer that I could use under the Moisture Mist Beauty Cake that I have.
Nude by Nature’s Undercover Airbrush Primer is a silicone-free primer that promises to create an even base for make-up application, while helping to extend wear. The first thing I noticed about this primer is that it is highly fragranced with a scent that smells almost peppery to me (it could possibly be rose scented, as some other rose scented products that I’ve tried in the past have seemed quite peppery to my nose). The primer does spread quite nicely, but it lacks the smooth, silky feel that silicone primers have. It also didn’t do a very good job of disguising large pores, and foundation application wasn’t all that flawless either. This Nude by Nature primer did cause a little patchiness, which doesn’t happen when I don’t use a primer or when I use a silicone-based primer.
Honestly, I’m not very impressed with this primer; it doesn’t live up to expectations, and definitely didn’t extend the wear of my foundation. If anything, it caused my skin to become more oily than usual a lot sooner in the day, which led to my foundation becoming shiny and prone to slipping or accidentally being wiped off if I bumped my hand against my face.
Personally, I would not recommend this primer, and I think I’ll stick to using silicone-based primers, as they seem to work better as an all-round base product that disguises pores, smooths the skin, and helps to extend the wear of my foundation.
