big fans of Catrice since the German brand landed in Ireland, and I really feel that their products have improved a lot since then (not to mention their pretty make-up stands).
Some of their newer products are really set to give higher-end brands a run for their money, and this primer, which arrived in the post a while back along with some other bits from their new collection (hitting shops in October), is no exception.
Prime and Fine seems to be quite an all-rounder: for €5.49, you're getting a decent-sized pot of creamy primer that claims to smooth out pores and lines for a refined complexion.
As this is an oil-free, silicone-based formula, it will suit most skin types. You can really feel the silicone when applying this - it gives just the right amount of 'slip', as Lisa Eldridge would say, for applying concealer and foundation.
It's become an essential step in my everyday make-up routine of late, and I definitely recommend it. It made my foundation go that extra mile, which is what I really look for in a primer. In fact, I like this so much that I may hold off on repurchasing my beloved Smashbox Photofinish for a while longer!
UPDATE: The lovely (and very on-the-ball!) PR people at Catrice are offering a primer to one of our readers after seeing this review. This will be a super-quick giveaway that I'm only leaving open until midday Friday 23rd September.
