I was in New York City to see Aladdin as a late birthday gift with my mom. Ironically Sephora was located right next to the theater. I couldn't plan that better if I tried! While I was New York I had to stop at the Sephora to pick up a souvenir duh! The sales associate recommended that I tried MUFE Smoothing Primer for my engagement photos to create that smooth base. See what I think of this new primer down below!

What I found:
I wanted to love this primer a lot. I actually did love this primer a lot. I had a nice smooth base. My foundation went on smoothly and I lasted a decent amount of time. I got my usual 8 hours of wear with my Foundation when I wear a primer. But the damn this broke me out! I had a lot of white heads when I used this primer! I'm so disappointed!
I do have to agree with everyone else this primer created the perfect base for my makeup to stick to. I had about 6-8 hours of wear with my foundation, which is normal for me so not extra lasting power with this primer.
I am beyond sad that this broke me out. I'm still unsure which ingredient I'm allergic to, to be honest. It give me white heads all over my face which is so embarrassing!! Thank goodness I didn't really test it before my engagement photos! I bought this the day before and just used it.
- Kept Oil at bay
- Smooth base for foundation
- Gave me white heads! Ugh :(
- So expensive! Most expensive primer I bought!
VERDICT: I knew this product wasn't for me when I had white heads popping up from using this. If you have sensitive skin I wouldn't recommend this for you. This is a skip for me! Sells for about $36. This went right back to Sephora! If I won't use it, I wont use it for other people's makeup either.
