Years ago, primers cost thousand of pesos because most of them came from high end brands.  Now, primers are everywhere even drugstore brands carry them at such a  low price. Months ago, I thought Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser was the bomb of all drugstore primers because of its price (You all know how I love affordable finds), until, I got hold of this baby! This is one of the products I received from the huge SM Beauty Box. I would often see this in Watsons but I was too skeptical in buying since there were no testers provided.  This just looked like a sample of  a regular sized product. Quick FX products are all travel friendly and affordable. Something I could just throw in my purse without worrying of the amount of space it will take up.  The product itself looked very similar with Benefit's Porefessional, ELF's MIneral Infused Primer, and Maybelliner's Baby Skin.
 It is an whitish gel that melts on the skin once applied. 
 Like Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser, this primer smoothens out my skin like magic. This primer is lightweight and not oily at all. I love using this on days when I have rashes and dry areas. It instantly makes my skin soft, supple and it felt very velvety. On weekends when I am tired of applying bb creams and foundations, I just use this all over my face  and voila, a smooth and shine free skin for the day! It is a good makeup base especially to those who have oily skin. You can refer to my photos below for proof. This amazingly mattifies my skin even on top of a moisturizer. No shine at all! It did not break me out nor cause aggravation to my rashes. I simply love the fact that it has no scent at all. It also diminishes the appearance of my pores as if my face was photoshopped, see the picture below. 
 My face sans any makeup. My  eye area are a bit shiny due to ponds Cold cream. 
 Can you see the difference? The Quick FX No Shine Mattifier instantly made skin look better. The part with primer has rashes as well but it really looked less visible. Shine also disappeared and I can actually wear this alone without applying foundation anymore. It made me feel more comfortable with my own skin sans foundation or BB cream.
What I love about this product:
  • Mattifies the skin very well
  • Acts as a very nice makeup base as it smoothens out the skin really well
  • Makes my pores less visible
  • Makes my skin look very flawless in pictures
  • It prolonged my makeup for hours but did not make it last the whole day.
  • It has no scent. 
  • A little goes a long way. I have been using this for months now and I have not yet bought a back up yet. 
What I do not like about this product:
None! I am truly head over heels over this product and I just wished this primer come in a bigger size. 

I will definitely repurchase this product and I highly recommend it to all of you. It is one of the most affordable products that truly deserve a rave in the blogosphere!
Has anyone of you tried this product? 

Godbless to all.

  1. I loooooooooove this too! I have extremely oily skin and this delays breakthrough shine for a few hours. Keeps my makeup intact, too! And it's very affordable!

  2. I bought this before but since I have combination skin, it made my dry areas even drier so I had to stop using it. It didn't help with my oil either. Such a shame! :(

  3. been looking for a primer that is easy on the budget! :) i think this is it! thanks for the review :) will check this one out and see for myself.

  4. I'm using this too! hehe.. got it from the SM Beauty Box na nakita ko din from one of your blogpost.
    In fairness sa SM Beauty Box, ang dami kong brands na na-try na hindi ko sya talaga bibilin or susubukan on a regular day. hehe..

    Anyway, I like this Quick FX better than the Maybelline Baby Skin kasi I don't break out when I'm using this unlike sa Maybelline na nag-pimples ako.. :(
    Their tinted moisturizer is good too, nakaka-fresh ang peg.. :D

  5. oh, i really hope this one works for me! i will definitely look for this! it did great on mattifying the skin.... can't wait to go to the department store! :)

  6. Ahhh I've been seeing this but never really paid attention. I guess I should check it out too. I have oily skin and anything "No-Shine" for me is worth checking out! :)

  7. Wow, that looks amazing, do you think it does anything for the texture of the skin like other primers though?
    I can't help but laugh at the ingredients that says mattewax.

  8. Woooooow! You look airbrushed with the primer on!

  9. i think i saw this on watson's... masubukan nga...

  10. Ayy.. I love this to death.. Though I still find it a bit pricey hahaha (kuripot me) Im thinking of getting the eye cream.. Whats your opinion with their other products?

  11. I haven't tried it but it looks like an amazing product. Maybe the matte wax in the ingredient will be the only concern.

  12. i want to buy it through online, how can I? where it will be available

  13. It has PARABENS!!! :(

  14. Hi may pwede ba kau isugest ung inaaply after ng make up para hindi humahawa pag pinunasan pag lang hiniram uspan ng soap at water

  15. I think this is the product I need but can't seem to find it anywhere dito sa Ilocos Norte. :(

  16. Wow, good thing ive read this blog..i will definitely try this..will buy later..was looking for a perfect primer for my oily skin..and i will surely buy this.. thanks so much for sharing
