A primer is not something i thought i'd be writing a review on anytime soon. Only a few months ago i never even wore primers, but now they are a daily essential for me. Not just for the longevity they bring, but also for all the extra properties they have these days. The cream of the primer crop for me at the moment has to be the Chanel Le Blanc De Chanel, and heres why....

The Le Blanc De Chanel somehow manages to brighten up your skin without actually including any shimmer. Yes, the brightening effect is quite minimal but day to day this is exactly what i want. Once foundation is applied over the top it gives you a healthy lit from within glow without making you look shiny, which makes this the perfect radiance primer for the warmer months. It also manages to smooth over the skin and give a subtle soft focus effect, meaning i tend to go for much lighter bases when i use this, and i would also be inclined to use this sans foundation for a 'i'm naturally this glowing' look. It's not technically marketed as a primer, but it does a bloody good job as one, keeping my makeup in place for a full day(bar touch ups around the nose - runny nose 4 eva.)

The only thing i find is that i do have to use quite a lot of this, id say a 2p size amount, to cover my whole face. I'm not sure if this is just because my skin is quite dehydrated or what but i am afraid of running out of it quite quickly. That being said i am still working my way through the sample i have which is only about 5ml and i've been using it most days for about 2 weeks - so who knows!

I've definitely found my favourite everyday primer for the summer to give me a glow without making thing look greasy.
