The bottom line is that Youthful Trends Caffeinated Makeup Primer is a definite must-have for anyone that has skin, both women and men. Since the primer can be used with or without makeup we can all benefit from the power of caffeine by have tighter, flawless, and more beautiful skin.

Guide Review - Review of Youthful Trends Caffeinated Makeup Primer

Greensations, brainchild of founder Wayne Perry, is a cutting edge company that strives on using high quality and forward-thinking ingredients in their natural body and face care products. A key ingredient in most of the products is capsaicin, which can be found in items such as their Facial Cleanser, Wrinkle Balm, and Thermaskin Spray. Now Greensations has branched out toward makeup by creating a new Caffeinated Makeup Primer, which is supposed to work with all makeup while keeping it in place all day and tightening your skin at the same time. So the question is, does the Caffeinated Makeup Primer work and is it any better than your regular run-of-the-mill makeup primer?

Recently I received a sample of Youthful Trends Caffeinated Makeup Primer and decided to try it for two days while using a stick foundation and then mineral makeup. The makeup primer is very easy to use due to the spray bottle container. The product dries down very quickly, and so after spraying my skin a couple of times I was able to begin applying my makeup as soon as I got out my foundation and brushes. The makeup primer has a nice natural smell and felt very refreshing on my skin. Once I began applying my stick foundation I was very happy to see that the makeup primer did not make my skin feel sticky or tight. Instead it felt very natural and soft, but not slippery like some regular makeup primers.

I had the same experience when I applied the caffeinated makeup primer before using my mineral makeup. The minerals did not cake or look unnatural over the primer what-so-ever. The best thing was that both times my make really did stay in place all day without having to touch up along the way. Normally, my makeup will need a quick fix by mid-afternoon, but even in the heat and humidity of summer the caffeinated makeup primer held up extremely well and kept my skin and makeup looking fabulous. The kicker was that my skin really did feel tighter while I was using it, due to the caffeine. And even though the primer helped my makeup stay in place all day, I had no trouble removing it at bedtime with my normal skin care routine.
