COVERGIRL'S new primer, Full Spectrum Matte Ambition Mattifying Skin Primer is perfect for any skin type. It contains SPF20 so that you can wear it under your makeup and at least have some SPF coverage, but if you don't have any in your foundation or moisturizer, it's okay. And it gives you a smooth, matte base for all of your makeup looks, even if it isn't a mattifying foundation. It extends the wear of your foundation to all day wear, is oil-free, calls for shine-free makeup, and is even great for acneic skin.
I like this primer more than most other ones, I like that it mattifies the skin and leaves it looking smooth like glass. It definitely does its job and does it without making the makeup look like a mask. I like how this makes foundation look smooth and soft looking. The SPF20 comes from Ensulizole 7%. This is a newer sunscreen ingredient that I had not seen before. It is a common sunscreen agent but was only approved in 1999. It's also known as phenylbenzimidazole sulfonic acid. Ensulizole is primarily a UVB protecting agent providing only minimal UVA protection. This means it doesn't provide full UVA/UVB protection. Because ensulizole is water-soluble, it has the characteristic of feeling lighter on skin. As such, it is often used in sunscreen lotions or moisturizers whose aesthetic goal is a non-greasy finish. That would make sense to use it is this primer.
COVERGIRL Full Spectrum Matt Ambition Mattifying Skin Primer SPF20 retails for $11.49 and can be found at www.ulta.com, Ulta Beauty, Target, Walgreens, CVS, Rite-Aid and Walmart.
