My Top 3 Favorite Face Primer : Part 2

For my Part 2 of My Top 3 Favorite Face Primer - a mixture of high end and drugstore brand. Before that here's my post of my Part 1 of My Top 3 Favorite Face Primer. Ok, let's get started with my Part 2 shall we?

Primers is a very essential and important step after moisturizer and before applying makeup because it's a step that give protection to your face from the ingredients coming from your makeup which may be harsh on your skin. It's like a barrier between your favorite moisturizer and your favorite foundation.

Me, I have very oily skin and it gets more oily on summer days but a little drier on colder days. Primers have two bases - silicone and aqua. I was blessed that my face is not too sensitive, so I can try different primers without ever have to worry if I might end up with blemishes. Though, in rare times my face is too sensitive.

Now, onto my next favorite face primers.

From left to right - Laura Mercier in oil free and radiance, Loreal True Match (which I have done a review HERE do check it out) and PIXI Flawless Beauty Primer in No. 1 Even Skin

Laura Mercier - I first heard this primer from one of my favorite Youtube Gurus - the Pixiwoo Sisters where they started using the Tinted Moisturizer. This primer is a water base, good for every skin types. I use the Oil Free Primer during times when my face is oily that gives a matte effect and the Radiance one is when my face is so dull like I haven't gotten enough beauty sleep which gives my face a silky glow. Just an added trivia for those beauty lovers and enthusiasts, Gurwitch Products who owns Laura Mercier is being acquired by Shiseido - a Japan based firm brand known for producing skin care, hair care, cosmetics and fragrance products. That also, owns NARS, Cl'e de Peau, Ipsa and Bare Minerals (whew!). That is something we look forward to of Laura Mercier in the near future now that Shiseido owns it.

Loreal True Match  - A creamy formula that gives a blur effect which helps when my face is having a bad times like redness and blemishes. I did an in-depth review on this, just click the "HERE" located above to lead you on my post.

PIXI Flawless Beauty Primer  - A cream, water based formula which gives a light, glow sheen on your face. In fact, I can wear this alone and just apply concealer and good to go. Pixi have other range of primers but this one I love the most though, this glass bottle is an old packaging. Last time I've checked on their website they changed the packaging to tube size. I'll be posting an in-depth review on this soon. (Do watch out for that).

Well, what primers are you using? Love to hear them.

Thanks for stopping by.
