New from Wet n Wild is Coverall Primer. For a mere $4.99, this baby promises to refine pores, fill fine lines, brighten complexion and even skintone (that’s a lot for $4.99!). I was up for the challenge of trying this primer out for a full day, and this is what I think. Keep reading.
Let’s start with the basics about me: By definition I have really dry skin that I have successfully hydrated using an AHA scrub, black soap, AHA face wash, argan oil serum and the best moisturizer in the world. Because my skin is so dry, I am a big fan of hydrating primers with SPF protection. Wet n Wild Coverall has NO SPF protection. Boo. That’s not a huge problem, since my foundation contains some SPF protection (SPF 18), but not enough. So if you are going to use this primer, wear it in conjunction with a foundation that contains SPF 30 or higher for proper protection from sun damage.
Coverall’s texture is like a gel that dispenses white and turns clear as you blend. It has the scent of a body lotion.
Application was very easy. I took a quarter sized amount and applied all over my face and neck with clean hands. This primer absorbs really fast and left my skin with a soft, supple feel with a matte finish. My pores (cheek area) appear to be a tad smaller. I can’t really talk about fine lines because I do not have any. My complexion does not appear to be brighter or more even.
2 minutes later, I was ready to apply my foundation. I applied my foundation and wore it for 15 hours (from 5am until 8pm).
Find this primer in Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, and other drug stores and mass merchant retailers.
