I was fortunate to receive more products from Reviva Labs. I already reviewed Reviva Labs Stem Cell Booster Serum. I'm still using the serum at the moment, not much left, and loving every bit of it! :) Now I'm going to review their new makeup primer...

She recommended the makeup primer. I thought it didn't hurt. To be honest, I was actually pretty intrigued since she said it's been getting great reviews. When it comes to primers, I'm pretty picky. I guess I should talk about my imperfections. I have some wrinkles especially on the forehead that needs some covering before foundation or in my case BB creams. I also want to cover up my huge pores on my nose. If a primer cannot cover my imperfections, I don't see a point in it.
Before I talk about the product, let's start with the first impression. It's a pretty simple bottle and it fits with their brand. It's an exact bottle as the serum that I own. One thing bad is when they're together, I cannot distinguish them unless I read the bottle. I've only done this once. :X I grabbed the bottle and pump some product out thinking I'm ready for the primer. I ended up getting the serum. This is my mistake, and now I know which one is on the left and on the right. ;) Even though, I made a mistake of grabbing the wrong bottle. I like how they're all packaged similar. It just fits the brand or at least my experience packaging is the same with most brands.
I also like that the serum comes in a pump. First, it's sanitary safe. Secondly, most primers come in a tube which you need to squeeze out. By squeezing, you can squeeze more or less of the product. With the pump, you get even amount of product. For me I only need to pump twice for my face.
Now for the product itself...
Not only is it for your face, you can use as an eyeshadow primer. To be honest I was pretty scared to try it as an eyeshadow primer since I have oily skin! The only primer that works for me is UDPP. I have creasing with other eyeshadow primers. I was pretty impressed it works as well as UDPP! I hardly saw any creasing until like 8 hours later and it was barely any there.
* Comes in a pump; sanitary safe.
* Accurate pumping.
* Comes in clear bottle you can see how much product you have left.
* Expiration date on the bottom of the bottle.
* COQ10 adds protective antioxidant action.
* Feels smooth.
* Spread easily.
* Covers imperfection; fills in lines and conceals pores.
* Can be used as an eyeshadow primer.
* Hard to find in stores.
Would repurchase: Yes.
