What’s Inside

Application

Apply an even layer of KiKi’s Face Primer to the clean and moisturized skin  prior to make-up application.  The primer can be used before any liquid, cream or powder foundation. Can also be gently patted onto the skin throughout the day or night to restore radiance and moisture.

Overall Thoughts

I was honestly taken aback with this primer. It was completely different to the other primers that I use as those are silicone based. After STEP ONE, which is applying the KiKi Beauty Natural Radiance Moisturizer, I apply the KiKi Beauty Face Primer to even out my skin which makes applying my CC Cream/Foundation as effortless as working on a smooth canvas.

The Face Primer is white in color and has as a smooth velvet texture which sinks into your skin. The product is also scentless which is a plus for those with sensitive skin.

The main reason I use a primer before applying make-up is to even-out my nose which is one of the main target areas for blackheads. The KiKi Beauty Face Primer did just that which was fantastic, along with moisturizing my skin throughout the day and making my make-up long lasting.

Packaging

Both the above products come in standard KiKi Beauty packaging – black, with fine glitter on the box and it has a twist-pump dispenser. I love that it has a sanitary pump that dispenses the right amount of product, allowing you to control how much you use, so you don’t use too much.

Price And Purchase

Do I Recommend These Products

I would most definitely repurchase both the, KiKi Beauty Natural Radiance Moisturizer and KiKi Beauty Face Primer. I rarely find products that actually live up to their claims along with being affordable. KiKi Beauty surely meets my expectations. And if that does not satisfy you these are key essential products to a Make-Up Ready face!
