The Sunday Riley Effortless Breathable Tinted Primer has become a fast favorite among celebrities since its launch. I have to admit that this was initially part of what lured me in to try this product! This dreamy, mousse like primer is incredibly lightweight and will instantly brighten and smooth your skin. There is a slight tint, but the product is basically sheer when blended out. I find that with 2-3 pumps all over my face, any oily residue left on my skin from my skin care products is basically absorbed while adding a touch of radiance. The best part is that this primer does not feel silicone-y (although there are silicones in this formula). I should also mention that my skin usually does not fare well with silicone heavy products. However, I have had no issues with breakouts with daily use of this primer for the past month.
The formula is oil free, oxygen rich and filled with Sodium Hyaluronate which is perfect for all skin tones and plumps the skin to create a smooth, even surface for makeup application. I have definitely noticed that with this primer my foundation does not settle into fine lines on my skin. I have tried this primer underneath many different foundations and tinted moisturizers, and the effect is always remarkable. Since foundations tend to last on me all day anyway, I cannot comment on how this primer extends the wear time of foundation.
The Sunday Riley Effortless Breathable Tinted Primer is available now at Barney's in store or online and retails for $48 for 1 oz/ 30 ml. It is available in 3 shades, light, medium and dark. I have medium which suits my skin tone perfectly. Today is the last day of the Barney's Beauty Event which is featuring a lovely gift with purchase over $200. I highly recommend this primer to anyone looking for a new one. This primer is HG material.
