Beauty: Collection Primed and Ready Primer Collection
I'm a magpie when it comes to new drugstore products. When I saw on Collection's twitter that they've launched a new range of primer products I was beyond excited to try them. I went into Boots (Boots points I'll love you forever) and picked up the reviving and anti-fatigue illuminating primer in warm apricot and the illuminating and reviving eye primer.
One thing the British high-street is lacking is eye primer. I haven't found an eye primer which is available on the high-street until I picked this one up! I've been currently using one which came with my TheBalm Nude Tude Palette which I've loved but it's sadly running out. This eye primer came just in time!
This eye primer applies quite clear on my lids but has a slight shimmer to it. It's lightweight and it dries instantly once applied (well enough time for you to blend but then it dries). This primer also helps blur any fine lines. The shimmer to this primer is really subtle and will be great to create both day-time and night-time looks. I've worn this primer all day twice and it left my make-up crease and smudge free when I arrived home 8 hours later. What else is really good about this product is that you don't have to use a lot of it for each application.
I wanted to try out the mattifying pore minimiser primer but that was out of stock in my local Boots so I went from the reviving and anti-fatigue primer. There's two shades available but I went for the warm apricot shade. I think this shade works better for my skin tone and I wanted this shade as it reminds me of Benefit's Sun Beam. After using this a couple of times I'm actually really impressed with this primer, it leaves my skin feeling illuminated and moisturised which I really like.

It worried me a bit to how shimmery the product is, but once you apply foundation over it it leaves you with a dewy glow. What I also discovered is you can use this primer as a liquid highlighter too.
