Pretty little rich girl.

I can't believe I've never reviewed this product before, as I could literally not live without it.

This is Multi-Protect Primer, from Nars' Pro-Prime collection. This is the first product I ever bought from Nars, I went in before Christmas on the look out for a new foundation. I went to the Nars counter and the girl give me a could of sample of foundation and a mini tube of this to try. I'll be honest I didn't use a Primer before, so I thought it wouldn't be much use but I gave it a go. The sample bottle got me hooked. It has a very creamy but light texture, it's oil-free so doesn't clog pore and kinda smells like oranges. Don't be fooled by the colour as it sinks in immediately and doesn't leave that 'crusty' feeling. You actually can't feel it on your face at all, it melts away.

 I wear Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation (which is also a gem), but if I leave without priming my face with this, I find the foundation kind of sinks into my face and leaves me blotchy - not a good look. I've used primers in the past from other brands but really haven't noticed a difference with my make-up, but this completely transforms the look, making pores look smaller and leaves my make up in place for at least 12 hours. It also keeps my pretty much shine free, which is fab when you have oily-combination skin like me!

It is pricey at £24 but totally worth it, I've used mine pretty much for everyday for the last 4-5 months and I still have some left. I've found very little goes a long way. I will definetley be re-buying this when I run out.

You can purchase this online from Nars, but I picked mine up in Selfridges.

Has anyone tried any of their other products? Which ones do you recommend?
