Deciem The Ordinary High-Spreadability Fluid Primer: Review

Onto another Deciem The Ordinary review. The High-Spreadability Fluid Primer is described as a spreadability-enhancing lightweight surface smooth primer with high-flexability silicones. Details per Deciem:

This new generation of primer is a lightweight serum-like formula that increases the spreadability of subsequent complexion makeup to help avoid the unnatural and uneven accumulation of pigments especially around the eyes and on dry skin. The formula also acts as a light, non-oily surface hydrator for a natural dewy look.

This is a lightweight, fragrance-free, colorless liquid texture silicone primer. It’s extremely affordable at $7.90 for a 30 ml glass bottle with dropper. The spreadability is amazing, this glides on like smooth silk. I usually stay away from the basic silicone style primers like the original Smashbox primer. They’re just too heavy and thick for me. I feel like I’m wearing a mask when I wear them.

That doesn’t mean I stay away from silicones in primers. I just prefer thinner textured silicone formulas. While this one is a million times better than the average clear thick silicone primer, it wasn’t for me. It was still too heavy. I found I broke out when I used this everyday after about 3-4 days in a row. The breakouts stopped after a 1-2 break from this. When I started this back up, the breakouts came back. I can use quite a bit of silicones with no issue, this particular formula was just not one of those.

For the price it’s worth a try to see if this works for you. The texture is fabulous and I love how it blurred pores and made my makeup application so smooth. I guess I’ll stick with Sunday Riley Effortless Breathable Tinted Primer which has silicones yet doesn’t break me out.
