Rimmel Fix and Perfect Pro Primer

If you've been reading my FOTD posts, you've probably noticed that I use Rimmel's Fix and Perfect Primer every single time I wear makeup. It's expensive for a drugstore primer (around $8 at my local CVS), but it's much cheaper than high-end primers I considered trying.

There are two types -- the one I have, the Pro primer (labelled 002) and the first one I bought, which was labelled 001. The only difference between the two is color. The Pro primer comes out white and dries clear when blended. The first one I bought comes out a hideous orange color (I wish I still had the tube so I could show you just how hideous), and dries close to clear, but can make you look ashy and washed out if you're dark skinned like myself.

In terms of quality, there is no difference between the two. Both help my makeup last all day and slow oil breakthrough. It also does a good job of smoothing out the few dry patches here and there on my chin so my makeup doesn't latch on to them. Good primers are few and far between in drugstores, so I'm glad I gave this a shot and I highly recommend it!
