Product Review: GOSH Velvet Touch Line Perfecter
Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten
Name: : Velvet Touch Line Perfecter
Size: 20 ml / 0.7 fl oz US
Price: approx. $17 CAD
I've tried several different primers (Quo, Smashbox, NARS, etc) and I've noticed that some are much better than others. So I'm always pretty excited to try a new one and see if it stacks up.
When I picked up this product, I thought it was like the other primers I've been using (basically, a base that helps makeup stay on for the day), but it's more of a skin "smoother" than a "primer", although it does that as well. But since Gosh has also come out with a Foundation Primer, I'm assuming this product is now focused on smoothing your skin, as opposed to setting makeup.
From their website: "especially designed to fill in deeper wrinkles and create a beautiful flawless finish to the skin. It's perfect for making your skin more uniform, helping to decrease the appearance of wrinkles and facial imperfections. It's a silky smooth formula that can be used alone or under foundation."
To Purr About:
- perfume free
- only need a tiny bit to cover entire face
- very light, spreads easily
- absorbs quickly
- makes skin nice and smooth
- jar is easy to get all the product out
- doesn't help makeup stay on as long as regular primers
A great product to smooth out skin, this Line Perfector definitely made my skin "silky smooth", which helps makeup glide on. However, it wasn't a great "primer", which meant makeup didn't have the staying power it usually does with my other primers.
I love the jar design because it means you can get to every little bit of product, which means you get a really good value for your money. Also, it's fragrance free and goes on clear, so it's suitable for everyone.
It does make my skin smooth and helps to reduce shine, but I found I was also using moisturizer and primer with it, which means it was just adding an extra step into my morning routine, which I really didn't want to do.
