Review: Revitalash Fineline Primer

Hey everyone. I have another review for you today! So I don't know if you know this about me, but I have an ongoing struggle with fine lines and pores. I guess because I work night shifts and am always tired, time is not being good to me and I am noticing a faster rate of ageing at the ever so tender age of 23. Yes, call me crazy, but its happening and if you take anything from this post its - don't ever work night shifts. 
So I am always willing to try products that aim to combat this, so when the kind folks at QVC offered to send me the Revitalash Fineline Primer, I accepted with hopes it would be my new Holy Grail!


The Revitalash primer claims to minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles for a silky soft canvas. The primer itself comes in a frosted pot which is weighty and made of glass. It feels expensive and is inoffensive to the eye. You get a hell of a lot of product, more than any other primer I have had before and only need the tiniest bit to cover your face. 


The primer itself feels soft but it does have the silicone feeling that some people will not like. A small amount goes a very long way and I have found myself on more than one occasion putting on too much and finding it won't settle properly, sliding across my face when it comes to applying foundation. Smaller than pea sized amounts are all you need and because of this I can see the pot lasting quite a long time!



So because my camera couldn't pick up the wrinkles on my face so I used my hands as an example. You can see here, my hand without any primer - you can see the dimples and tiny lines quite clearly. 



I then applied the primer to it and you can easily see the dimples are filled and lines appear smoother - almost blurred. The effect on my face is the same. The primer seems to fill in any blemishes, wrinkles or lines and then when foundation is put over that, it smooths on easily. Ultimately what the Revitalash primer achieves is a smooth canvas to work on, creating an airbrushed finish.

However, much like many products on the market, this is a silicone based primer. I myself don't mind this, I have never been broken out by silicone and I think as long as you have a good routine when taking off your make up, its something you don't need to worry about. But it is worth bearing in mind. I myself have tried silicone free primers and have found they don't work as well at "filling in" and creating a flawless base. I also did find the primer a tad drying on my cheeks. While the primer is more designed for around the eye area and I find it fine for this, I need that little bit of "smoothness" on my cheeks. I find it can be drying especially in this colder, windier time of year on my cheeks. 

Overall I really like the primer. It does a really good job more so at smoothing out wrinkles than pores, so for me with my beastly pores, I need to look into something more suited for them rather than the eye area. That being said, if you find yourself struggling with fine lines and wrinkles, definitely give this a try as it is perfect for those! It definitely gives me a nice flawless base and fills in the small lines I do have around my eyes (and don't tell me you haven't noticed them in my make up looks ;)). I will happily continue to use this for that purpose but may have to keep searching for something for my pores. The Revitalash Fineline Primer is available on the QVC website here for £40.50.

This product was sent to me for consideration. This review was written by myself after a test period of about 2 weeks using the primer. All opinions are my own :)

  1. I actually really like silicone-based primers. I'm after the Tony Moly egg shaped one at the moment because it's adorable, but this looks like it does the job really well. A bit out of my price range though.

    I'm only 20 and have noticed eye lines! *eeek*

    1. Me too :) The Tony Moly one does look super cute! It is very pricey, but I think for the big pot you get, it isn't that bad. The Nars one is the same price but I think you get less? And it doesn't work half as well :) But yeah, wrinkles suck especially at our age :(

  3. I have really fine lines under my eyes that annoy the hell out of me, however with the primers I've tried they've seemed to exaggerate my dryness :(

    1. I can see this definitely showing the dryness as it does the same on my cheeks. Haven't noticed any dryness on my eyes yet which is surprising as my eyes are usually very dry!
