Gorgeous Cosmetics - Primer and Liquid Foundation First Impressions

Gorgeous Cosmetics recently had a 40% off sale on their website and I bit the bullet and purchased the Gorgeous Cosmetics First Base Primer and 3 shades of their Base Perfect Liquid Foundation, with the intention of keeping them in my kit as a liquid foundation alternative to the creams I usually use. I did a quick Google search, as you do and there weren't that many comprehensive reviews. I think that's for two reasons, they aren't widely stocked and they aren't widely popular either - Gorgeous Cosmetic is quite a niche brand created by an Australia MUA aimed at pros, kind of like MAC minus the wide spread popularity.

The above picture was the first day I wore this for the whole day, I teamed it up with the primer and set the under eye area with a bit of Ben Nye Banana Powder. The consistency of the primer is nice and smooth, it feels really comfortable and nourishing like a moisturiser - really similar to the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm but a little less 'glowing'. The primer is also really different to 'pore minimizing' primers too, it doesn't feel like a tube of silicone. I really enjoyed this primer, which is really rare because if you know me, you'd know I almost never use primers on myself.

The coverage of this foundation completely floored me and the finish was absolutely amazing. I wore the colour BY-01 and the colour matched me perfectly (i'm about an NC-30 atm) and it just looked like I had naturally amazing skin. I no longer needed to cover up the broken capillaries on my cheeks and and uneven skin tones around my nose and chin area were covered up effortlessly - it also didn't cling onto any dry patches. It wore nicely throughout the day without making my t-zone oily.

I will be posting a comprehensive before and after review of this Primer & Foundation soon. But at the moment, I am completely loving it and am already considering purchasing another bottle of both!
