Today’s review is going to be the Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Smoothing Primer. Being someone with extremely oily skin, it is always a struggle to make the pores appear smaller when wearing makeup. There are so many products out there claiming to instantly shrink the pores but in reality they are all just a bunch of gimmick. I got this primer for my mom who has the same skin type as mine. So how did the Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Smoothing Primer fare out?

How Did The Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Smoothing Primer Work For Me?

The Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Smoothing Primer comes in a matte grey squeeze tube packaging which is both sleek and sturdy. It is also easy to travel with as it is just an ounce. As I mentioned earlier, my mom and I both have extremely oily skin with large pores around the nose area so I picked the MUFE Smoothing Primer as we already have a couple of mattifying primers that we enjoy. As the name suggests it does smooth the skin’s surface by filling in the pores, fine lines and blurs out the skin. The foundation or BB cream applies and looks so much better with this primer underneath.

Though it doesn’t mattify the skin which can be managed with a little extra powdering, it doesn’t claim to so no hard feelings there. The Make Up For Ever Step 1 Smoothing Primer helps with the longevity of the makeup and makes it look absolutely flawless. It also helps the makeup from creasing which is great as we face that the most. This primer has not broken us out for the times we have worn this. If you are on a budget then the affordable Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Smoothing Primer dupe are the Rimmel Stay Matte Primer, Pixi By Petra Flawless & Poreless Primer and ELF Mineral Infused Face Primer. Overall, if you are looking for a great smoothing primer for large pores and fine lines then the Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Smoothing Primer is one I would absolutely recommend!
