Ugh, I never even thought of a make-up primer, not at least until a friend mentioned to me that she uses it and her foundation goes on flawlessly. One of my biggest pet peeves about the relationship that my face has with a foundation is that sometimes they just don’t get along. I mean it depends on the day whether my face is feeling friendly and hydrated or if we are cranky and crusty. Nothing makes me feel less attractive then when I feel like I am wearing my makeup like Spackle on dry wall.
I go to ULTA Beauty (one of my faves as it should be one of yours) on a mission for primer. The kind and helpful woman shows me a variety of different options. I knew I found my match when I met the Urban Decay Primer Potion- Pore Perfecting. Just a dab on my hand and it reminded me of when Meryl Streep a la Death Becomes Her looks at her hands; one is old and wrinkly and one looks youthful and baby soft. I was sold.
My favorite things about this product? It doesn’t let me waste. Sometimes in application of “my face” I spill, I squeeze too much… I can be wasteful with my make-up. This tube allows for portion control (brilliant!) so that I’ll only use what I need. I will say that the tube looks rather small when you first take a gander. Trust me when I say a little goes a long way. This primer does not leave a film or make you feel like you are caking the layers on. Light weight for sure and makes your face look and feel like you had it air brushed. Yes, please.
Take it from me, the girl who cringes at the prices on higher priced cosmetics, that this product is worth every penny of the $30 price tag. I am OBSESSED!
