I was browsing the aisles at Ulta© in search of a new primer when the sales clerk recommended I try it.
“It’s fairly new and I really like it.” She dipped a cotton swab in the “tester” and handed it to me.
I dabbed some on my finger tips and rolled it around. I liked the feel of it. I rubbed a little on my face and I loved the feel of it – so soft, so smooth. At $35, it was not in my usual price range, but the small sample really impressed me and I wondered what it would be like to do my whole face. I decided to bite the bullet and buy it. I couldn’t wait to get home and try it out. Here’s my impression.
The packaging was nothing special, just a little pink box. When I lifted out the jar, I thought – nice. It made me think of a candle. A lavender/pinky colored lid was screwed atop a clear, three dimensional-looking jar. It was nice. Very nice.
The first thing I noticed once I took the lid off was that the cream was a pale pink. It made me think of baby lotion. I sniffed it and smelled a light, pleasant fragrance. It was the kind of scent that makes one think of women, creams, and powders. Familiar. Pleasant.
I dipped my fingers in and spread a light layer over my face. It went on smoothly and I didn’t get that flat, ashy look that I always got when I used the Neutrogena© primer. My skin felt smooth and silky. I kept rubbing my hands over my cheeks marveling at the feel of them. And the Malley Perfect Prep Poreless Primer created the perfect canvas for the rest of my makeup. I absolutely loved it.
About a week later, two of my sisters came by to visit and I got out some of my new stuff – blush, eye shadows, lip colors, and the Mally Perfect Prep Poreless Primer. We sat around the kitchen table laughing and talking like the little girls we once were.
“It feels like silk,” Lavina exclaimed as she smoothed some onto her face. “I love this!” I have to agree with her. I can’t wait to try the rest of the line!
