      Where has this been all my life?
      I confess to having bought this after reading about it on Kate of Ghostparties' blog (I see that she has also reviewed it above). She is considerably younger than me and my skin is much more mature and dry, so I wasn't entirely sure that it would work as well for me as it did for her.

      My skin isn't bad for my age, although I do have a small amount of discolouration, the occasional blemish and annoying redness on my cheeks. Wearing most foundations feels heavy on my skin and looks (to me, anyway) obvious and false. Sunday Riley's Effortless Primer, however, melts literally effortlessly into my skin. It diminishes all of my flaws and lets my natural skin shine through. I would defy anyone to realise that I am wearing anything on my face when I put it on - it is that perfect "your skin but better" effect, for which so many of us have been striving for years.

      All I need now is a little concealer under my eyes and over the occasional blemish (RMS Unconcealer, also here at Cult Beauty, gives a complimentary similar "invisible but makes a big difference" effect.) I don't even need to bother with putting any foundation on top. Please don't ever stop stocking it. This has revolutionised my makeup regime and I would never want to be without it, now that I've found it.

      I find products like this are something I never skip out on, mainly because they do so much for perfecting and concealing that I can use a lighter base afterwards – this does not disappoint as it feels weightless when applied, allowing the skin to breathe due to its oxygen-rich formula, and instantly perfects for a complexion that’s worth feeling happy about.

      This has been on my shopping list for the longest of times. I’m not even sure what pushed me over the edge to purchase it in the end – perhaps I was just feeling super spendy that day? Well, whatever the cause I’m bloomin’ glad I did cause it’s really rather lovely.

      It’s billed as an oil-free and oxygen-rich, skincare pumped, sheer tint of colour that can be used alone or as a base for makeup and I can’t really argue with that. It does exactly what it says on the tin, depositing a light wash of coverage that mimics the texture of skin and operates in the realms of a tinted moisturiser, while providing a ready to go base for foundation if required. I find it to work particularly well as a bit of a lube-like primer on dry skin days.

      The results are so subtle that even I struggled to see the difference until I paired a before and after photo side by side, but that’s the point. This stuff is seamless. Personally I like it most on its on, paired with a touch of concealer under the eyes; it stifles my redness, blurs away blemishes and gives a healthy dose of colour to my complexion.

      Believe the hype!!!
      I have been on the hunt for a base that just evens out my skin tone. Don't really suffer from blemishes or acne. Wanted something that was light and didn't feel like a foundation. This is it. I just can't believe how nice this is. I thought the limited shade range would be a problem but it works just fine for me. I love this soooo much...just feels like a really nice moisturiser. Believe the hype and it's totally worth every penny

      This primer and Good Genes have refreshed and revitalised my 51 year old skin like no other products before and believe me when I say that I have tried the lot! ! My skin looks refined and tightened; I have a healthy glow, my adult acne is dissipating and I no longer need to reach for foundation before leaving the house. This is the first review that I have ever left for cosmetic products - that's how bowled over I am!

      Instant Complexion Perfection
      I'm plagued with sensitive, easily upset skin that erupts if I so much as smirk at it. Stress, hormones and over-enthusiastic cleansing cause instant rebellion, so I sometimes struggle to put on a brave face. Caking on make-up only exacerbates whichever issue my skin is 'working out' - so I sighed an enthusiastic sigh of relief when I discovered this beautiful primer. A lightweight tinted veil, this unifies my skin tone and helps blur imperfections without making my face feel claustrophobic; while the barely-there finish appeals to my (very unadventurous) girl-next-door approach to make-up and doesn't migrate into ever-more-prevalent wrinkles.
