After trying out 6 of the best high end primers out there, along with other 3 less well known face primers, I am now ready to share my opinions and my journey to finding the best makeup primer for combination to oily skin.
While I wouldn't say I have oily skin, my skin can look oily after applying certain lotions and creams, and my makeup starts melting after only few hours. Because I don't like blotting my face or re-applying powder during the day, both I cannot seem to find the time and because I don't like the powdery look I get when re applying my powder for the second time, I have been on the search for that primer which is able to lengthen the staying power of makeup on my face. While I haven't found one that makes my makeup last all day, I can definitely recommend two that can make your makeup last longer than what it would usually last.
But before let's start with a list of all the primers I have tried. The list includes the following:
1. Body shop, both the one for oily and dry skin
2. Stage primer
3. Sisley instant perfect
4. Smash box photo finish colour correcting primer
5. Smashbox photo finish oil free primer
6. Makeup Forever HD Green primer
7. Benefit the Porefessional
8. MAC Matte Primer
If you know me a little, you also know I never stop looking for something better. In fact, I look forward to trying out the following primers:
the Nars skin smoothing face prep
the Nanoblur optical skin cream
the Hourglass veil mineral primer
the Bourjous Happy Light Matite'
the Dr. Brandt Pores no more
the Benefit Stay Flawless Primer
the Too Faced Primed and Poreless Skin Smoothing face primer
the Face Stockholm Primer for perfect skin
Have you tried any of the above primers? If yes, let me know which you suggest me to try first.
And also don't forget to share which is your favourite primer.
