This one has been in my wishlist for long. My requirements with a primer are not very extensive. I want it to be slightly hydrating with a subtle glow sans that silicone’s feel. This one ticks all the boxes perfectly!
Marc Jacobs Under Cover Perfecting Coconut Face Primer comes in a luxurious frosted glass bottle with a pump dispenser. Full marks for the packaging for being perfect in every way possible. The formula is quiet light with thin consistency which glides smoothly and absorbed easily. It feels nice & hydrating (the benefit of addition of coconut) on the skin though not enough to replace your regular moisturizer. What I love most about this is that it sets into slightly dewy finish or say makes skin look naturally luminous. It’s not a highlighting or that glowy skin primer but provides a natural freshness to the skin without that slippery silicon feel. It just blurs in flaws beautifully creating a nice smooth canvas for the follow up makeup. Again if you have serious pores issues then this won’t be of much help. The formula is quiet gentle sans any heavy silicones for an effortless natural look. My makeup glides comfortably & stays longer. My skin looks much smooth ,healthy & softer with this on. The only thing that disappointed me is the fragrance… I love the delicate sweet/nutty coconut fragrance and was expecting same here. On contrary it has got a little artificial fruity fragrance with a hint of coconut one (not a great fan ). But it’s not something overwhelming for me so I just get away with it. Price tag is not a good news here but if you have good skin & looking for some gentle formula , this is worth every penny.
I would highly recommend this for normal-dry skin without any major pore issues.
