I've had such a great day- I'm so glad to be finished for the Easter holidays but sadly its not a leisurely holiday for me as I have to do lots of studying. Though hopefully it'll mean I can post a bit more!
So today's will be the last post related to last Saturday's shopping trip. I was in Boots (just after my Soap & Glory haul and I decided to look for Real Techniques brushes. I couldn't find them so I asked a Benefit counter lady and she seemed quite interested to find out what they were. We were talking about how important the brushes used for application are to the final look and she explained how primer was equally as important.
She told me how primer is an essential layer which acts as a barrier between your skin and your make-up, protecting your pores from blockage. Not only that, it keeps your make-up in place all day. She then told me about Benefit's 'the POREfessional', one of their best selling products. She kindly done my make-up to allow me to see what I thought of the primer- and it was fab!
It results in an absolutely flawless, airbrushed complexion. It removed all the shine and amazingly made my spots magically disappear! It is oil-free which means it won't clog pores, as long as it is applied with a brush (fingers have oil so it defeats the purpose).
Me wearing the POREfessional primer. Notice that there is no shine on my forehead and my cheek tone is really even.
I was extremely impressed and I now realise how important primer is. the POREfessional had definetely been added to my wishlist, but for £23.50 I don't think I can quite justify it, so I'll have to try and make do with my MUA Pro! Nevertheless, if you want to get your hands on this amazing tube of magic, visit their website. I will definitely remember this product for future as I was just so impressed with the results I got.

That's all from me tonight, hope everyone enjoys the rest of their weekend,
