What we say:
When it comes to my daily make-up routine, primer is a very important part. Even if I wear a matte foundation, I need primer to ensure my make-up stays on throughout the day. In summer my face tends to get a little oilier, so a primer is a lifesaver.
I am quite particular to the primer I use and I have used the same primer for some time now. I read great things about the Cargo primer, so I was excited to put it to the test myself. The consistency is the same as my go-to primer, so that was a promising start.
The primer is silicone based, so it blended effortlessly and within a few seconds my skin was smooth, matte and ready for me to apply my foundation. Like with most primers, foundation application is a breeze, regardless of whether you use a brush, sponge or your fingers to blend your foundation.
By mid-afternoon my T-zone started getting oily which was rather disappointing. Considering this primer is similar in price to my go-to primer, I’m not sure if I would switch over to it. If your skin doesn’t get too oily during the day, then I would definitely recommend this primer.
