So lately ive had a thing about looking for the perfect face primer that actually does what its supposed to do but the only catch was that i wanted something in a decent price range. I didnt wanna spend alot of money on a primer, but i didnt want something that actually did something and i was determined to find something in Target one day so i spent quite a while in the makeup section.
I splurged a while ago on the ModelCo Face Base Primer which set me back about 50 something dollars and it is a good product but just not for me. It is a gel like formula that when applied feels awesome because its so smooth and luxurious and super moisturising, but if your like me and have stupid combination skin from super dry to super oily, this is not for you. It sits really nicely on my super dry bits but on my super oily bits it just slips right off, so it just doesnt work for me, and im a little upset about it and this is what triggered my search for a cheaper alternative. So id recommend this product for someone with dry skin, it would work like an absolute dream and would be worth every cent for you, so if you happen to find yourself in a David Jones in the next few days, its worth trying out.
(Ive actually battered this when ive thrown it around and it eventually found its way into my makeup kit so it can be used on clients with drier skin)
So back to my trip to Target i picked up the Rimmel London Fix and Perfect Primer which i absolutely love and i think i found that cheaper option primer that actually works. I love it, it sits well on both my oily and dry patches of skin on my face and it doesnt feel oily, it feels like an oil free moisturiser and it smells like watermelon which is cute and it has an orange tint, but it doesnt show up on your skin when its applied. It does what its meant to and keeps my makeup in place all day and ive used about half the bottle and will definately be purchasing another bottle of it.It controls the oiliness of my skin and it keeps my dry patches moisturised which means my makeup never goes flaky or cakey which is awesomeeee.. It was around the $13 mark in Target, but dont quote me on that but im definately sure thats its under $15 which equals a complete bargain !
What face primers are you guys using ? Let me know cause maybe theres something better than this cause im almost due to buy another bottle...
Love S xx
