Philosophy's Never Them See You Shine Velvet Touch Primer

Never Let Them See You Shine Velvet Touch Primer is one product that I've recently bought... :) When R and I went to Robinson's Galleria to meet up with a prospect condo seller, we passed by Beauty Bar and I noticed the that they already have the Never Let Them See You Shine collection of Philosophy. I was just raving and the whole time I couldn't let keep my mind off of it. So, when R and his friend L were chatting I took off and I checked out Beauty Bar asap. :)

It took a while before I actually bought this since I was torn between this and Smashbox's Photo Finish Light Primer. I really was indecisive so badly. But in the end, I caved in and got me a tube of Never Let Them See You Shine Velvet Touch Primer. It nearly have the same amount of product but cheaper.

There wasn't much rave reviews that I saw online about this but I've trusted Philosophy's products for so long I didn't have doubts about this.

And I wasn't wrong. I so love the finish that this primer gave. Despite the liquid-y consistency of this product, it gave me such a matte effect instantly with no feel of oiliness whatsoever. My face was totally primed for makeup. Applying my concealer was a breeze and my foundation seem to stick to it like it was matched made in heaven. Needless to say, I am in love with this product. The hefty price I paid for (P1300), was definitely worth it.

Did I mention that this smells wonderful? Like an essential oil has been added to it. I couldn't exactly name it but it smells divine!





However, (yes, there still is), this primer like all of my primer isn't as long lasting. It lasted for 4 hours maxed before the evil oliness crept out... I wasn't really surprise since i have an oil-mine face and most of my primers last this long anyway. The Great thing is, I can re-apply this primer on top of my makeup (after i used an oil blotting paper). I tell you, it won't cake your makeup. Like I said, instant matte face.... again!

So, yeah... this primer is worth your attention. :)


this is me after makeup application, using Never Let Them See You Shine Velvet Touch Primer underneath. :)

there is a lot product on this look that will be reviewed in the next coming posts so don't get tired of this photo. :) hehehe!

I give this product 4 out 5 Kikay Pinay points. :)

Is this my HG primer? Well, still hard to say but right now its in par my Ellana Make It Last Primer and BareNaturals S5 Primer. Teehee!

much love,
Shen
