I think I raved enough about how my life changed after I discovered primers. For me it makes such a difference that I cannot think of applying foundation without it.
The beautiful brand delilah has introduced me to theirs: the delilah Under Wear Future Resist Foundation Primer.
To start with, the packaging is lovely – and a bit different – a tube with rose gold lid, and I wasn’t expecting the (also rose gold) pump underneath. The pump delivers a good amount and for day-to-day wear, two pumps are enough to cover my face.
This product has a firm serum consistency and its pleasant scent is very discreet.
It applies well, leaving a velvety feel on the skin; I found it is quite hydrating too. It does helps foundation spread better and more evenly, creating a better finish.
Durability wise, it is in-line with the my usual primers; it takes me through a whole day at work, then some.
What is very interesting about this product is that, apart from being a primer, it also has age defense: its formulation contains peptides to give us a helping hand against fine lines.
delilah is a beauty and cosmetics brand created having natural, all-ages beauty in mind. It is high-end luxury, as can be seen not only in the product quality but also in the packaging. This primer is part of a quintessentially British capsule collection, taking inspiration from metals like Brittania Metal (pewter coloured) and crown gold (rose) and carrying as a symbol an English rose – the beautifully pale Delilah rose.
The delilah Under Wear Future Resist Foundation Primer costs £34 for 48ml (quite a generous size for a primer, so very good value, if you think at price per ml) and can be purchased on their website and from luxury spas around the country.
