First of all, Primed & Ready:
To put it bluntly, I'm not a big fan of this Primer. Firstly, this primer really broke me out. Yes, I do have sensitive skin, however, I have also used many silicon based primer and have never had such a reaction before. For this reason, I have only used it around 3 times. From those times, I found that it didn't reduce the appearance of my pores, nor blurred them out, and it didn't control my oils at all. It does give a smoothe canvas for when you first apply your foundation, however, it didn't help my makeup stay put for very long. I usually do love Collection 2000 products, but this primer was a bit of a let down. I definately do not reccommend this for anyone with sensitive or oily skin.
What Collection 2000 says about this Primer:
Collection Primed & Ready Smoothing Make up Primer preps the skin, providing a beautiful base for easier make-up application and ensures your make-up remains intact throughout the day.
The silky formula of the COLLECTION Primed & Ready Smoothing Make-up Primer glides onto skin, providing a light coverage for a flawless complexion, and a noticeably natural finish.
Preened perfection is just one step away with the COLLECTION Smoothing Make-up Primer, as it seeks to minimize problem pores, smooth uneven skin and hide unsightly blemishes.
This multi-tasking primer makes make-up application effortless and keeps your complexion smooth and flawless all day. Whether you’re blending foundation, securing sumptuous lips, experimenting with eye colours or going bold with blusher, you can be confident that your canvas will remain crystal clear.
Next, the 'Fix me up' makeup fixer:
Now, I am definately impressed with this makeup fixer. As instructed, I used 4 spritz after applying foundation and powder, waited for it to dry then did the rest of my makeup. This made my makeup stay on for a full day (about 15 hrs) without the need to reapply. Its didn't stop my oil from coming through, however, after blotting out with blotting sheets, my base makeup looked as fresh as when I first applied it. Yes, it is a small bottle, but as I don't reccommend anyone using an alcohol base makeup fixer everyday (only as occasion requires), it does last me quite a while, and I do believe it works just as well as the skindinavia makeup fixers.
What Collection 2000 says about this makeup fixer:
From the minute you’re made-up to the moment you dress down, you can remain the marvel of freshly applied foundation.
Duration is guaranteed from dusk ‘til dawn, without a worry of washing off, fading down or patching up.Any glam-girl-on-the-go knows how tedious touching-up and re-applying make-up can be, but now this non-stick, weightless make-up setter offers any budding beauty a ‘barely there’ sheen for the ultimate in luminous finishes.
No matter how stressful your day, this beauty BFF will be on-side to stay-away any un-wanted imperfections, giving a long-lasting flawless finish.
Both products cost around 5.99GBP each.
