I'll link the other two reviews below from the video, if you want to go and check them out.

This retails for £6.99 for 30ml of product. which is reminiscent of all the primers within the Rimmel family. This also comes in two shades, Light/Medium and Medium/Dark.
I love the packaging as I mentioned above mainly because of it's stand out title in bold pink lettering. Also comparing this to all the other primers within the Rimmel range, personally I think this is the nicest looking which made me want to buy it over the others. The tube itself has a lid and a squeeze application method, but because this is more of a tinted moisturiser than a primer, I think the tube could get a little messy after a while.
As it mentions on the packaging, this is a radiant skin tint, so not only does it prime, it also adds a bit of colour to give you a flawless looking glow. This can be used alone or under foundation, I used this on it's own and applied it just like a foundation, with a brush, because of it's tinted formula.
Upon application, this was actually more of a thicker consistency than I expected for what claims to be a lightweight skin tint. It also was a tad dark for a light to medium formula, so just be aware if you have a pale complexion, this may not work as well for you. Despite the thicker consistency, this applied really nicely and left me with a gorgeous sun-kissed glow. It also smelt pleasant too and reminded me of the initial smell of the Rimmel In-Shower Tan I reviewed.
Overall this had a light to medium coverage and as I mentioned above, I would consider this more of a tinted moisturiser than a primer, because of the coverage it gave.
This did last pretty well throughout the day, but by the end I had a few dry patches and the glow had almost gone from my skin, so a light re-application would be needed if you were going out at night.
For the most part I did like this product because of the glow aspect, smell, longevity on the whole and the fact it had an SPF 15 in it. But this did cling to my skin in places and make it appear dry looking towards the end of the day, which was a shame considering this is supposed to be a moisturising formula. So for that reason I probably wouldn't use this on it's own again and I'd be more likely to pair it with a foundation underneath, to use as a tinted primer instead.
So in conclusion, I did like the initial aspects of this skin tint, but for the money I'm not sure it's worth swapping out your favourite primer, BB or tinted moisturiser for something that essentially does almost the same thing.
I award the Rimmel #Insta Flawless Skin Tint 3.7 out of 5
