The No7 Brilliantly Bare Beauty Enhancer is described as having a super lightweight, no-colour formula which blends in seamlessly, smoothing away any imperfections and giving the appearance of flawless skin without the look of makeup. It claims to minimise pores and enhance the skin’s radiance, and is to be used over the top of moisturiser before applying your foundation. The primer is packaged within a glossy, black tube which squeezes the primer through a tiny hole, to reduce any wastage.
As you can see from the photo above, the primer is skin-coloured however upon blending it becomes completely undetectable on the skin. The very first time I tried the No7 Brilliantly Bare Beauty Enhancer I had to grab my Benefit POREfessional from my drawer to check the ingredients, as they literally have the same appearance and consistency.. and to my surprise, they have an almost identical ingredients list however No7’s offering is £12.50 for 40ml, and Benefit’s is £24.50 for 22ml – so half the price and double the quantity, which is amazing.
Just like Benefit POREfessional, the Brilliantly Bare Beauty Enhancer works like a poly filler for the pores, by filling them and blurring imperfections prior to applying foundation. It leaves the skin feeling incredibly silky which helps my foundation brush glide across my skin, making foundation application quicker and easier.
I love how the primer coats my dry patches, so my foundation doesn’t cling to them as much, making my complexion looking so much more even and perfected. My foundation looks so much more flawless when applied over this primer, and longevity is definitely improved too. I seriously cannot recommend this No7 Brilliantly Bare Beauty Enhancer enough, especially if you already love Benefit’s POREfessional as it’s identical but much better value.
