Hello my lovelies,
So I am back with an old school post for me. When I first starting blogging back in 2016 I started a series of my Top 3 products. I really enjoyed writing them but there are only so many categories you can write about and to be honest I had other ideas and posts I wanted to write and this was forgotten about. Now, over 18 months on I thought it would be interesting to revisit the posts that I wrote and see what has stayed and what has changed.
If you would like to see my original Top 3 Primer post see here
Laura Mercier – Foundation Primer see here
This was actually in my original post and I am still absolutely loving it. I’ll be honest and admit I don’t use this every day, it’s the sort of product where it gets forgotten about for a little while and then as soon as you apply you fall in love all over again. I just can’t fault it at all. My skin always feels amazing when this is applied and every foundation loves it too. This is more of a silicone based primer which is what I probably lean towards as I find it creates a matte finish which is what I go for. I still can’t believe how expensive it is though but it’s one of the products where it’s worth those extra pennies.
Nip + Fab – Viper Venom Micro Blur Fix see here
If you have been reading my blog recently then you know I absolutely adore this primer. I have found love and I just constantly pick this one up to apply. I use this so often and the amount I have used it I’m surprised that there is still some left in the bottle. You get a lot of product for your money.
Annoyingly I think this is being discontinued which is really annoying but it is currently on sale so I would pick it up if you are interested in trying it out. I actually pick up a lot of my Nip + Fab products from TK MAXX – I’m a little bit of a bargain hunter! Again this is a more silicone/gel texture which gives more of a matte finish but is really hydrating for the skin. If you have tired the Laura Mercier foundation primer but can’t justify the price tag then it might be worth trying this baby as it’s half the price!
Loreal – Infallible Mattifying Primer see here
Yes there is a theme here they are all mattifying and all silicone based – I can’t help what I like! This is well and truly a silicone primer and I love it. For me this is one of the best drugstore primers I have found. I use this slightly less than the other two primers I have mentioned as I whip this out when I am having a tough time with oils on my skin and I need something that is going to keep my face matte for as long as possible. I find it so easy to apply on the skin and works wonders with whatever foundation I choose to use. If you like silicone primers and haven’t tried this yet – then seriously you really need to, it’s a must in my opinion!
& there you have it! Let me know if you have tired any of these primers and how you got on with them. Also, do you have any recommendations for new primers to use – I must warn you I have a vast collection of primers but I am always up for a new addition!
