EmerginC Red Carpet Primer

When I was in my twenties I thought that primers were a waste of money, I just didn't see the point of them. Now that I'm in my thirties I've found that primers are an essential part of my make-up routine. The primer that I'm loving at the moment is EmerginC's Red Carpet Primer. 
EmerginC says: advanced, plant based, hydrating and plumping micro-spheres fill in wrinkles and fine lines and conceal pores, leaving a noticeably smooth, even complexion. This naturally tinted formulation also primes the skin for flawless, long lasting make-up application, while fighting free radicals and brightening and nourishing skin with an infusion of vitamin c.
I was very hesitant when I first used this as it is dark brown. When I applied it I thought I was going to end up with a brown tinted face, but to my relief it applies clear. 
There are a few reasons why this is my current favourite primer:
  • The pump top is a great idea and makes it super easy to use. I only need one pump to cover my whole face.
  •  The coverage is great. It makes my skin look smooth, covers my pores and softens my fine lines. I use this even when I'm not wearing any make-up.
  • It doubles as a face and eye primer. Not only does it keep my foundation where it should be, it also helps my eye shadow to stay in place and my concealer to stay crease free.

Red Carpet Primer costs $60.00 (AUD) and can be purchased from The Facial Company.

Will I buy this? Yes, it's my favourite primer.
