40 Days and 40 Nights of Primer Reviews
Primer Reviews Recap
Some thoughts are in order for the end of this Project Primer. I've made some wonderful discoveries, I found some surprisingly good products from many different cosmetic lines, and I have enjoyed reading the comments from Blogdorf Goodman readers.
I've been asked to make a list of my top recommendations. But as you know, there are so many products that do different things for different skin types, it would be nearly impossible to just give a blanket yes or no to each one. Someone with very oily skin would be happy with one of the mattifying primers. Women "of a certain age" may prefer a more moisturizing formula. Then there is the glowy-look lover who prefers the iridescent formulas. And on and on and etcetera. What I can say is this. There is a perfect primer out there to suit every need.
And now, for the final thoughts:
1. Smashbox PhotoFinish original clear formula remains my favorite all-purpose primer.
2. Makeup-artist lines seem to be the weakest in the primer category.
3. Luminizing formulas look very pretty on maturing skin.
4. Mattifying primers work really well at holding back the oil slicks.
5. I still do not know where the gold went (Guerlain Divinora).
6. No one took me up on my suggestion to cruise their holmes for cult-type products.
7. I am good at snagging samples. I must look like a serious consumer when I am at Nordstrom.
8. Annieytown is the best co-hort in primer crime. I am honored that she asked me to do this project. She snagged samples for me when I became distracted by sparkly things.
9. I do not want to test any more primers.
10. I have hurled my La Prairie Concealer Foundation across the street. I think someone already stopped and picked it up.
Happy Holidays to those who are celebrating this weekend! I will be at the dessert table at Quaker Steak & Lube on Sunday, in case you have any questions.
