Review: Majolica Majorca Skin Lingerie Pore Cover

I never knew about makeup primers until I had my wedding almost two years ago. When I was looking for makeup that I could use for my wedding, I don’t have any idea what I need to get. Well, maybe, just a bit of an idea. Like I need foundation, blush, mascara and lipstick.

When I went over the stall of Majolica Majorca in SM Makati, that was when the saleslady told me that I need to apply a makeup primer before any other makeup product. I was like “Huh? Primer? What’s that?” There goes the Makeup 101 lesson I had at the said department store that day.

To help you understand more how important a makeup primer is, I listed down the benefits that it could give for you (the list below is based on this Inquirer article and this beauty advice from totalbeauty.com):

  1. If you have oily skin, a makeup primer could be your best friend. It works on minimizing the oiliness in your face.
  2. Your makeup could be prevented from melting or streaking especially during a hot weather.
  3. It can serve as a skincare product as well since primers also have SPF (Sun Protection Factor) which can protect your skin from the sun. (This depends on your chosen primer, though. I think not all primers have SPF.)
  4. The foundation that you will use can easily glide without any traces of streaks since primers could give a velvety, silky finish on your skin.
  5. Since the foundation could glide easily on your skin and the makeup can be prevented from melting, you will look flawless for longer.
  6. Noticeable pores could be hidden by a primer.

As of now, there is only one makeup primer that I have tried and that is the Majolica Majorca Skin Lingerie Pore Cover.

Product Description (from the Majolica Majorca website):

A makeup base that thoroughly covers pores for porcelain doll skin.

Since it did a good job in making my makeup last during my wedding, I decided to repurchase this product. Here is a photo of the packaging. It is in a tube so you could easily dispense the product.
