MAKE UP FOR EVER Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer

Hey friends! I'm coming at you from Kingston Ontario today, as I'm visiting some friends for the weekend. Kingston is only about 2 hours from Ottawa, so it makes for a great weekend getaway from the capital city. If you've been to Kingston before I'd love to hear your reommendations for restaurats, entertainment, etc! Now back to the beauty...

MAKE UP FOR EVER Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer

MAKE UP FOR EVER has recently released a line of new primers, which they are calling Step 1 Skin Equalizers. I've been trying the Mattifying Primer* ($43 CAD), which aims to reduce shine, while also create a great base for makeup. I definitely believe in the power and importance of using a high quality make up primer, as they can not only prolong the wear-time of your makeup, but they also create a barrier between your foundation and your skin!

"Prep skin for your makeup routine with Step 1 Skin Equalizers, and address your skin concerns with this innovative makeup primer. Perfect for balancing skin and achieving an ideal makeup result, it’s lightweight and creamy, leaving a more evenly-toned appearance, and increases foundation's hold. This primer for all skintones leaves makeup looking fresh for hours while it hydrates, firms, and smooths the look of the skin." - Sephora

MAKE UP FOR EVER Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer

I really like the packaging of MUFE's new primers, and the mattifying one comes in a black plastic tube. This formula is very, very thick, probably the thickest primer that I've used. Because of this, I do find it a bit difficult to easily smooth the primer all over my face. Instead, I've been dabbing the primer on to my t-zone, which is the area of my face that tends to get the oiliest. I don't have very oily skin in the Winter, but come Summer I know that my skin will be a bit more "glowing". I've found that this formula from MUFE has been great at keeping my skin looking matte throughout the entire day, and keeps my makeup looking flawless!

I do wish that this formula was a bit easier to apply, but maybe it's thick formula is the secret to a full day of matte skin! There are a few other primers in this new range that I'm quite interested in, especially the Nourishing Primer. Have you tried any of MUFE's new  Step 1 Skin Equalizers? I would love to hear your thoughts on them in the comments below! In the meantime, I'm off to explore the beautiful city of Kingston in this gorgeous Spring weather!

  1. I haven't tried this mattifying one and it looks kind of thick. I have tried the smoothing one and I find it very comparable to Befit Porefessional if not better.

    1. It is very thick! But you can rub the product between your fingers to melt it a bit to make it easier to apply :)

  2. I love Kingston, I have family there so I've been quite a few times! I tried the peach primer and sadly it doesn't suit my skin at the moment #palepeopleproblems. Too bad this one was on the thick side!

      Aw that's too bad, coloured primers are always a bit tricky!
