“ Brand: Beautiful Movements / Type: Primer „
WHAT IS IT?
A make up primer that can be used alone or mixed with mineral foundations. It is to give you a smooth finish under your make up that will help to make your foundation last for longer and it will give your skin a flawless look.
HOW DO YOU USE IT?
If you are using it on its own you take a small amount on your finger from the pot and apply it to the skin on your face. It turns from a soft gel into a powdery feeling as it is applied to the skin and turns instantly matte. To mix with mineral foundation you need a brush but I have only a small pot that came in a beauty box so I have used it alone only because there is only 2.5g and that is not very much to make experiments with.
WHAT I THINK
I like how my skin looks when I have used this primer because it is very matte but looks luminous and healthy. I have never heard of Beautiful Movement before but Prime And Create is a very good make up primer and I think it is one of the most effective ones that I have tried.
I like the feel of my skin after I have used this primer because it has got such a soft and smooth feeling. When I apply foundation over it it glides on very smooth and I think I use a little bit less foundation when I use the Beautiful Movements primer because it does not need to be applied and blended so much.
I think the primer applies very smooth and I like very much that I can tell where I have applied it even though the product is clear and dries to see through. It is very light in the texture and does not make my skin feel heavy or like any difference to when I don't use it but it makes my skin look a lot more smooth and stops it shining.
A 20g pot of Beautiful Movement Prime & Create gel costs £20 and I think that is a lot of money but for me it is worth it because I like it when my skin and make up looks flawless.

When I received a small pot of the Beautiful Movement's Prime and create mixing medium I was a bit stumped on how to use it as my current stash includes a foaming foundation, a mineral foundation and some bb creams, all of which don't lend themselves to mixing but on further inspection I found it is designed to be used with minerals or on its own underneath make up. You can also mix with pigments for eye shadows or liquid liners so it is quite a versatile product.
This really resembles the well known smash box primer which is very popular amongst beauty addicts. It is a clear gel like consistency and a little bit goes a long way.
I tried mine mixed in with the BB Cream and it worked well, it also made the foundation go a lot further so it does help economise if you're using an expensive foundation. I used a cotton bud to take mine out of the jar to keep the remaining product free from fingers.
I quite liked using this and have tried other things from the brand which have been OK but I was not blown away by it. It felt like another make up step to squeeze in to an already hectic morning schedule so for me it's not an everyday product. I am all for primers though and feel it performed well in this capacity. It blended in well with all products I tried and did not congeal on the skin. The fact that this is clear also makes it suitable for all skin colours or you can just use it on its own as a skin improver.
A 20g pot of this costs £20 which I think is probably top end of what I'm prepared to pay for a primer.
I would say this is worth a try if you use the smashbox primer as it does compare favourably with this product. I can live without this product in my make up bag though so will probably not be repurchasing it any time soon.
