Quick FX No Shine Mattifier Primer

Quick FX No Shine Mattifier Primer Review

I heard a lot of good things about this primer, and I went to three stores only to find out they were out of stock. Come my fourth stores, I had a little bit of luck, and I was finally able to purchase one.

Quick FX No Shine Mattifier Primer Review
It's a silicon-based primer that has salicylic acid, chamomile, tea tree extract, and matte wax. It claims to hide imperfections, pores, fine lines while providing a smooth matte finish. It also claims to help prevent and treat pimples. And it retails for only PHP 89.00, basically less than $3 if memory serves me correct.

No wonder it's always out of stock. It's a great primer for the price. I actually use this more often than Maybelline Baby Skin or even my Smashbox primer just because it's so affordable that I don’t mind using a lot more product by applying it all over the face. I find that it’s easier to blend than Baby Skin (even though Baby Skin offers the “pore erasing” claims which sometimes works for me) and I believe the salicylic-acid claim does work a bit on my acne. It doesn’t really prevent breakouts, but it does calm them down.

You can easily apply and spread this primer on skin, but I feel like it doesn't really hide fine lines as it claims it does. It also doesn't really hide pores, but it does help with oil control for an extra hour or so. I think it works best with dry skin and that oil control would be amazing on it. As for me, I have oily-combination skin and I usually retouch at the third or fourth hour. It doesn't have any scent, it has a resealable cap, it's super travel friendly and affordable that it's just something you have to try in the market.


  1. i've heard great things about this too! I'm just not sure where I would find it here. Have you tried/heard of the Rimmel foundation primers? I heard they were good too. I'm so mad at myself. I went to by it the other day along with other stuff and I didn't see that the guy forgot to ring it up. It was left at the counter. lame. LOL

    1. good thing it wasnt punched and then you left it :P i heard mixed things about the Rimmel primer. there's two kinds right? one for oil control and the other for blurring it and let me know if ti's good lol
