Makeup Revolution Pro Prime Aqua Priming Base Review

Hey beaut's!

Priming waters and sprays seem to be everywhere at the moment and are proving to be really popular and effective in the beauty world and as you may have seen I actually reviewed Freedom Makeup's offering a few weeks ago and have been really enjoying using it, so when I saw that Makeup Revolution had also released one recently I was keen to see if there was much of a difference between the two seeing as Makeup Rev and Freedom are created by the very same people. 

Much like Freedoms priming water the Makeup Revolution Pro Prime Aqua Priming Base* (£6.00) is a lightweight primer spray that can be used to either provide a moisturised base underneath your makeup or on top of your makeup like a finishing spray for extra highlight and dewy-ness. So does this little beauty work you may be wondering... in a word YES! I've have been loving this priming water and how it makes my skin look and feel, to apply the priming water all I do is after popping on my usual moisturiser I just spritz 4 sprays onto my skin, 2 going downwards from the top on my face to my chin and the 2 going across from ear to ear, I like spritzing it in that way so I know all my skin has had some priming water love, I then wait a few seconds for the priming water to settle in slightly and I usually fan myself with my hands to speed up the process he he. The priming water feels so refreshing and lightweight and adds a dose of moisture to the skin because of it's added multi-vitamins and creates a really nice dewy base to work on, the spray wont reduce or fill in pores but is great for boosting radiance and revitalising your complexion. 

I also love using the priming water after I've applied all of my makeup, kind of how you would use a setting spray, it just adds more radiance to the skin and reduces that flat, matte, powdery look which I hate. I would probably say someone with slightly dryer skin like myself will benefit more from this priming water because of its hydrating qualities and the fact that it adds radiance to the skin, that being said as the priming water does contain glycerin which is a key ingredient in keeping things set onto the skin and making your makeup long lasting I think oily skin types shouldn't rule this priming water out either.

The only difference I have found between Makeup Revolutions offering and Freedoms offering is that the Makeup Revolution Pro Prime smells really nice, just like baby powder which makes it more enjoyable to use where as Freedoms smells a little more chemical like. I also prefer Makeup Revolution black and rose gold packaging to Freedoms clear bottle too. But in terms of how the product works there really isn't any difference between the two and you could easily get away with buying either or.

Have you tried Makeup Revolution's Pro Prime Aqua Priming Base? What did you think? I'd love to know.

  2. I love the packaging! This sounds really good, although very similar to The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist so probably not a product I actually need! Lovely review though!

  4. I've never tried a liquid primer or setting spray before but I like the sound of it being hydrating - perfect for winter

  5. I need to try this! After Smashbox brought one out I've been dying to try a cheap alternative. Makeup Revolution are my favourite brand right now so this will be on my list next time I go shopping!
