Primers are an essential part of my makeup routine. I don't know about you but in my opinion primers can make your skin appear smoother and make application of makeup easier. I have always been curious about the Etude House Beauty Shot Face Blur because it claims to make your skin appear smoother and feel silkier. If a product claims my pores will disappear, I am sold. My enlarged pores have always been an insecurity (and so does my indented acne scars but more of my pores) and I just want them to disappear!
I have been using the Etude House Beauty Shot Face Blur for 2 weeks now and I can't say I am in-love but I don't hate it either. It is more of a neutral product that has a few benefits but also a few downsides. I may or may not repurchase once I have used up the bottle I currently have.
- No scent
- Easy to blend
- Watery consistency
- Has SPF (low SPF but still has compared to most primers that have none at all)
- Blends well with any skin tone (the peach color works well with any skin tone)
- Doesn't feel heavy on the skin
- Small amount is needed to cover entire face and neck area
- Makes the skin appear less red
- Makes skin look smoother
- Can make skin oily in just a few hours (probably around 2 hours)
- A bit expensive (around 800.00PHP ++ for a regular priced bottle)
- Doesn't hide pores
I am still not sure if I like this product or not. Though I have listed more benefits than cons, the reason I bought it was to hide my pores. However, it did nothing to hide them. They are still there: very visible and very large. The fact that it makes my skin super oily after a few hours is another reason for me to reconsider before I repurchase. But overall, I do think this product is good. Most of the time I would just wear this, dab some concealer under my eyes and on spots and I am good to go. It has reduced the amount of time I spend putting makeup on.
I will probably try other primers when I have finished this bottle before I decide if I will repurchase or not.
