I thought I’d show you what primer I’m loving of late, especially as this wonder product isn’t even marketed as a primer – The Meaningful Beauty Wrinkle Smoothing Capsules!
The Meaningful Beauty Wrinkle Smoothing Capsules held inside this jar haven’t helped me fight any wrinkles as I don’t have any …. yet, but they have certainly helped keep my make up looking tip top and pristine. Meaningful Beauty is Cindy Crawfords skin care collaboration with the world famous anti ageing guru, Dr Sebagh!
The range was designed to help us busy women combat the stresses on our skin and help us look young and fresh at the same time.
Each jar, retailing for £39.95, contains 60 capsules which works out to be around 1.5p per use. I use 1 capsule per application as I find a little of this product goes a long way. You do need to be careful when twisting the top off as it has a habit of spurting all over but providing you are careful, it’s more than enough product. These are also my number 1 travel make up product as they take up such little space, you can make sure you take enough for each day without having to decant which is a big bonus for me as I travel a LOT.
I apply this product as a primer on days when I am using a fuller coverage foundation such as Estee Lauder’s Double Wear or the new Bourjois 123 perfection, both of which have quite a matte, ‘chalky’ finish, days when I am being photographed or ‘seen’ or on days when I really want to be flawless. The primer stops product clinging unsightly where it shouldn’t but gives enough slip to apply freely without rushing to buff it out to a flawless finish before it’s “set”. That is all thanks to the silicone base to the gel. It also seems to stop heavy foundations giving you that mask feeling you often get.
For a product that isn’t marketed as a primer, it does an amazing job and I think the marketing department of Meaningful Beauty have missed a trick here! If they put this in a measured dose / pump top bottle, it would be a holy grail primer for me and I’d buy it until the cows came home but in the mean time, I am more than happy to continue to stock up on these little capsules of awesomeness!
