Priming the palette

Up until a couple of years ago, I had no idea what a face primer was, nor what it could do for you when applying makeup. Well, I have come to learn *plenty* about them now & want to make sure that you do, too.In the video I mention the following primers, and tried to touch on their price points, but I did so with out any notes. I’ll list them here, with links for more details on them, and will list their current SRP:Avon MagiX – $10 (on sale now for $7.95) (*bought this myself)Tricia Sawyer Skin Balancing Water Primer – $34 (*bought this myself)Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Luminizing Face Primer – $10 (on sale at CVS for $7.99) (*bought this myself)Stila Hydrating Primer SPF 15 – $34 (*PR provided)Cover FX Clear Prep FX – $39 (*PR Provided)Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Primer – $38 (*PR Provided)Two Faced Shadow Insurance – $17 (*bought this myself)L’Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara – $10.95 (*bought this myself)Cover FX Mint Glaze FX Primer – $22 (*PR Provided)I also mentioned, but didn’t show:L’Oreal Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base – $13Urban Decay Primer Potion – $18I also wanted to mention one that I had forgotten to show in the video, the Clinique Redness Solutions Daily Protective Base SPF 15. This is a primer that not only sets your skin for your foundation, it does so by correcting the redness in your skin, with a green tint, if that is one of your problems – $17.50 (*PR Provided)Just so you know, I have only touched on the brands, and availability, of primer products that are out there. I just wanted to at least let you know how much of a variety there is, and how there is definitely one for you and want you need it to, if you decided to start using a primer. Please let me know if you use any of the ones I mentioned or if this compels you to try one – I’d really like to know.

    Nice feature.
    I use a Mac primer that I got as a sample; it has some sparkly stuff in it. And I use a Laura Mercier primer. Either one is all right, if I’m using foundation instead of powder — with powder, they get kind of sticky. Also really good as a primer is a high spf sunscreen. I use Paula’s Choice, spf 30.

    Thanks for this post! I love Tricia Sawyer primer! Today I’m using Geri G!

    elea: Thanks! I think these are fun to do. Powder makes my face itch, so you won’t see me wearing it too much on its own. I do know that once the MagiX dries down, you can buff powder in to it pretty well, in my experience. I’ve never used any of the Paula’s Choice stuff – I keep meaning to try it out.

    veedee: Thanks for reading! I don’t know anything about Geri G – have a link to share?
