Review of Maybelline Instant Age Rewind

Prime Time: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Primer

When it comes to primers, a few standards ring true. The majority are going to have that clear, slippery-to-the-touch feel, and essentially, they're going to do the same thing: create an even surface on the skin. What it all comes down to is personal preference. Do you want matte or satin finish, or something that's silicone- or scent-free? How about the price tag?

Maybelline's silicone-based Instant Age Rewind Primer pretty much has you covered on the basics, and at $9 a tube, it will appeal to your pocketbook. While a little more dense (but not oily) than other primers I've tried, it's also a lot more spreadable, and even has the tiniest bit of pink coloration to help give a subtle glow. My foundation and concealer glided right over it quite nicely. Find out more when you keep reading.

At first, I didn't like this primer because I was seriously greasy by the end of day. Turns out, I went way overboard with the amount of product I used, and once I toned it down, I actually found the primer to be quite a nice drugstore buy. If your skin's naturally oily, Instant Age Rewind might be a bit too slippy for your needs. However, if you're after something a little more on the satiny side when it comes to texture, you'll definitely appreciate Instant Age Rewind's semi-matte finish. (Just don't use more than a pea-size amount like a certain Bella did.)

I just got this a few weeks ago and I love it! Granted, it's my first primer so I don't have a lot to compare it to. I have fine lines under my eyes that aren't that noticeable...until my concealer melts into them and exaggerates them. But I can't go concealer-less because I have bad dark circles. This primer finally solved the problem.
