REVIEW: Shiseido Refining Makeup Primer

Back with another product review, and this time around, it is one of Shiseido's primers!

I don't remember how I got this, but I believe it came along in a makeup set I bought in late 2013 or early 2014. It comes in a tube of 10 ml.

The primer is desert beige in colour, and yes, it is in cream form. Pretty thick too. I don't favour cream primer because I noticed that cream products, when applied oily face, makes the face oilier. *scream*. The primer makes the face fairer, so I don't recommend this for darker or pale skin pretty ladies out there. It leaves a smooth finish on the face. 

Pore Refining 
Surprisingly, its ability to refine pores is beyond my expectation. Small pores are covered up nicely and it makes the bigger pores less noticeable. The primer really stays true to its name!

Oil Control 
The oil production has slowed down. It does a better job than the Innisfree No-Sebum Blur Primer. It holds the oil production longer by more than an hour!

It smells like any other face cream products out there.

Most of the pores are unnoticeable after applying the primer! I will buy this primer again if it isn't because it is a cream primer. What a shame it does not satisfy me just because it's a cream.
