Primers. They’re kind of a boring product, right? I don’t have a large collection because I decluttered a crap load not long ago, and to be honest, I always forget about ’em because I don’t always use a primer. I find when my skin is free of texture and red spots, I go without.
The plastic container is from my local Dollar Tree.
My current tiny collection of primers:
- e.l.f. Aqua Primer mist
- Maybelline Master Prime (My current favorite)
- Maybelline Instant Age Rewind
- Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser
- e.l.f. hydrating under eye primer
- Smashbox Photo Finish
- benefit The POREfessional (Maybelline Master Prime is probably a good dupe for this product at half the price)
All of these primers are OK, though my preferred primer is the Maybelline Master Prime. It has a nice moisturizer feel, and I prefer that to the slippery silicone feel that I get with the Age Rewind, POREfessional, Baby Skin, and Smashbox primers.
Before I realized I’m allergic to coconut oil/water, my favorite primer was Too Faced Hangover RX. I didn’t use it daily, which is why it took a while to realize I was allergic to the ingredients. 😦
I haven’t tried any of the illuminating/highlighting primers, though I’d love to! I have heard great things about the Catrice brand, as well as the Maybelline Blur + Illuminate primer.
Do you always use a primer? What is your ride or die primer? Let’s see your collection!
