I’m always looking out for new primers to try for bluring out my pores so that the application of my foundation can some what look smooth. But I’m honestly stuck on 2 primers that I’m in love with. Okay to be honest, when I started using makeup I had no clue of what primers were and how it was almost a must to apply it to help with the problem areas before applying any sort of foundation (powder, liquid & so fourth). It also serves as a barrier between your skin and the foundation and thats really good for your pores not being all clogged up – EWWW … who would want to have that feeling when your trying to look extra special.
CHECK OUT MY FAVORITE PRIMERS
Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer – Shop Here
This primer is my top favorite, especially when I want full on blur for my pores. This product of course is on the high end side, but is well worth the splurge. This primer comes in 2 bottle sizes & prices: Jumbo Size(1.7 fl. oz.) = $42.00 & Regular Size (1 fl. oz.) = $36.00 . All that Smashbox has claimed about this product has been spot on. I’m always feeling extra special when I use this primer. But because of the price (which is like 2 cases of pampers for me – OMFG), I would purchase 1 bottle here and there and use it slightly generously – a little goes a long way.
Maybelline Instant Pore Eraser – Shop Here
This primer is most definitely on the drugstore side, but it still does it’s job at giving your pores a good blur for an everyday work or regular day look. Let me tell you when your on a budget, this baby is most definitely my choice at first hand. The only con of mine is the small amount 😦 I wish it would be a bit more product for the same price. But again I cant complain – its well worth spending for on my tight budget. On the Maybelline site, its $6.99 – but it may all depend on the store you are purchasing from. Like my local Kmart here on Guam sells it for about $8. Yup I know – what happened to the good price, but of course with Guam being far, the selling prices are almost double the cost amounts. But still a good deal to fit my budget.
Ive been having pretty bad breakouts and small bumps here and there, do you have a primer you could recommend or any of your favorite primers? I’ve been switching my face care routine around a little bit. OMG – high stress levels and raising hormones can literally do a beating to having breakouts!
I would love to hear what all you beauty lovers have been loving 🙂
