Goodbye Pore Ever - Etude House (Review)
I've been on a hunt for a good, but also somewhat affordable face primer for quite a while now. The goodbye Pore Ever primer may not be too far from fulfilling that criteria. It is often compared to Benefit's Porefessional, and the Benefit's version may be a little better at controlling oil but eh, just a little detail it's almost 3x cheaper. Yeah. So let's get into the review!:
What it claims: Moisturizing makeup primer masks pores to subdue sebum and improve makeup coverage
Texture: A gel-lotion like, not too "silliconey" as some primers feel.
Finish: It has a matte finish. It doesn't dry right away, it is meant to be moisturizing after-all, but it does end up having a matte finish and make your skin super smooth.
Long lasting?: I'd say a mediocre longevity. Not sure if it would handle an all-nighter dancing party, or a spicy meal party, depends on how oily you get.
Price: ~8-10 CA$ (Can get a decent deal on e-bay but of course make sure it's authentic!)
Packaging: Can't even stress enough how cute that packaging is! The silhouette of a face on a box is really neat. The tube that the product comes in is very practical, hygienic and is filled to the top.
I do find the tube kind of small (20ml), but as I've learnt a little goes a long way with this one.
I do like this one quite a lot, but won't give up my hunt for the perfect one just yet!
