The Laura Geller Spackle Primers are super popular, and for good reason too. I own a couple of varieties and I really love them so I was most intrigued by their newest addition to the Spackle lineup; the Laura Geller Spackle Even Tone Makeup Primer. The Laura Geller Spackle Primers are such amazing value as they’re £25 each, but they contain 56ml which is well over double the amount of primer in the Benefit POREfessional for just 50 pence more.
The Laura Geller Spackle lineup used to be quite small, but it’s grown recently and now there’s definitely a primer for every skin concern and I knew I wanted to try the Laura Geller Spackle Even Tone Makeup Primer as I’ve really been struggling with redness recently, so my skin was the perfect match for this particular primer.
Laura Geller says;
“Create a flawless canvas for extended makeup wear while color-correcting the appearance of skin discoloration, both instantly and over time. This universally flattering pinky peach hue adds a subtle soft-focus effect to minimize the look of imperfections while delivering a radiant, natural skin finish. Over time, the skincare-infused formula helps to even skin tone, enhance clarity and diminish the appearance of dark spots for a flawless complexion.”
The primer has a peachy beige tint which I initially thought would be much too dark for my pale skin, but the colour somehow manages to blend into the skin without leaving behind any tint to the skin which I’m really grateful for.
The primer feels more like a moisturiser than a primer, without any silicone sliminess whatsoever so it’s ideal for dry skin like mine as silicone based primers tend to be rather drying. Laura Geller likens the primer to being akin to skincare, which I would have to agree with completely – it doesn’t feel at all makeup like, and more like an extra skincare step.
To use the primer, I squeeze around a £2 coin sized amount onto the back of my hand and then use my dampened Beauty Blender to apply the primer to my face. I have tried using my fingers but I personally prefer the finish when using the Beauty Blender especially as it gives my foundation an extra glow when I apply it with my Beauty Blender straight after using it to apply the primer.
The primer does contain shimmer particles which I’m not sure picked up in my photo which worried me slightly as I definitely didn’t want a shimmery face, but once it’s been thoroughly blended into the skin, you cannot see any obvious shimmer – just a gorgeous glow. In terms of evening my skintone, the Laura Geller Spackle Even Tone Makeup Primer truly surpassed my expectations. As I massage the primer into my skin, it instantly manages to even out my skintone and reduce my redness considerably and my redness is pretty subtle but I imagine it would be very effective for those with rosacea.
I find that this primer really does help to improve my makeup’s longevity which is no mean feat during this hot spell we’ve had lately, but I do have to use a little of a pore minimising primer on my nose and chin as the Even Tone Spackle doesn’t tackle my pores, but it doesn’t claim to either. If you don’t suffer with an uneven skin tone, there are a good range of different Spackle’s to choose from (11 in total) – all of which can be found on the Cult Beauty website here.
