REVIEW : Banila Co's Prime Primer "Classic Matte"

Hey! It's been quite sometime since my last review, but here is something that I really wanted to review, finally! It's a product from one of my favorite brand, Banila Co. It's the Prime Primer "Classic Matte"!

The primer retails for KRW 18.000 and they have 4 variation for the primer. It contain 30ml of product.

This product is not entirely new for me, I've emptied the whole bottle of the "Classic" one back before I started this whole cosmetic review kinda stuff! See here (I got the "classic" in the 7th Anniversary Limited Edition). I have a pretty (super) oily + combination skin, but I ended up getting the "classic" one back there because of some event promotion they had.

Actually the "classic" one is a pretty great product, I must say, but still I always thought that the "classic matte" will work better for me. The Prime Primer is one of Korean best selling primer, and definitely Banila Co.'s ace product. I stumbled upon Banila Co's Gmarket page where they have a 20% off the primer, and since I don't want to use my Benefit's Porefessional everyday, I finally got it.

There's nothing fancy about all the packaging (that's why I love it. So simple) and everything is written in Korean. Anyway, mostly the description on the box said that this product will help to reduce oiliness, especially around the T-zone and also helps the makeup to stays on all day. Also, this primer is translucent so it would not be seen through all the makeup.

I used around 1 pump for cover my whole face - yes I use it in my whole face, though I'm keeping the focus on my T-zone area. The product comes out like a gel, transparent with a slight hint of a mint color. But of course once it blends nothing will see through. Anyway, the pump is really make all the application easier and more hygienic!

I thought that once applied, this primer will give that velvet-smooth feeling (like how Porefessional did) but it didn't! There's a slight velvety feeling, just a slight. Overall, the "classic matte" application is very similar with the "classic". I expect that the "matte" will instantly mattify my face, but then, once I applied this primer allover my face, and let it set through 10+ minutes, my face does turn into more 'matte', like the oiliness that my moisturizer gives almost gone.

I don't say that you have to wait 10 minutes+ everyday, because it didn't change any of the effects. Also I didn't use much product to cover my whole face. The "classic" that I had used up contain 45ml of product and it lasts me for 2 years (!!!) and I finished it because I gave it to my friend for her job doing makeups for 9-10 people for a film project we did last summer. I still have some that I will scoop out of the bottle :p

really hard to see the difference..

The difference I felt with this product is that my makeup stays on longer! Especially in my T-zone, my makeup stays on longer and my makeup didn't melt off! At first I didn't see any noticeable difference, then I tried to use this primer only on half of my face, and the amount of oils in my face decreased by almost 70% on the side where I have this primer on.

Overall, I love this product! Especially in this autumn weather, because this product keeping my face matte - without drying at all. I can still feel the moist that my cream gives before. And I think this primer makes my blemishes less visible day by day because it serves as a layer between my skin and my foundation / bb cream. I've been pairing this primer with almost all bb creams and foundation I have, and it turned out amazing! <3

They gave me a bunch of samples! (Seems that they gave out the "classic" samples to all, even when they bought the other primer...), anyway, thankyou! 잘 쓸게용!

Just a tip here, even if you have a slight oily skin - i recommend you to pick on the "classic matte" instead of the "classic" because the "classic" still make your face look moist. And this product is transparent, it works well with all skin tone!
