i know it’s been a while, but i promise that in 2015 i’m going to try and blog more. i have two amazing primers to tell you about.
the first one, i came across through my local sephora. not sure if you guys have noticed or not, but urban decay eye primer has changed their application method from a wand to a squeezy tube that you apply with your finger. HATE this. don’t think that the coverage is what it used to be with this change. so, i asked the gal at sephora what she recommended for eye primers with a wand and she suggested the nars smudgeproof eyeshadow base. and of course, like anything nars, you’re going to pay for this quality. but at $25 per tube, it will last you for months and if you compare the pop of eye color you get while using a primer/base vs. without one, i PROMISE you, you’ll see a huge difference and notice an impact on it’s staying power.
speaking of favorite primers, my favorite face primer now comes in a cute travel size. it is hourglass mineral veil. and let me tell you, this stuff is nothing short of magical. it has SPF and it gives your skin a smooth, clean start for your favorite BB cream or foundation. i’ve tried everything from drugstore primers such as rimmel and covergirl, to the upscale primers by chanel, dior, etc. and this one takes the cake. you can get the mini size for $18 and the big mama size for $52. i use about two pumps per application.
and sadly, i have a beauty fail. and this, is a mega fail, but no worries, it only cost me $5. but gals – take a look at the wand in the link below?! doesn’t that scream beauty win? it has everything i love in a mascara brush — the rubbery spikeys and the bold brush! first off, the formula STINKS. like a cross between rubber and sugar. eww. and the coverage and curl it promises..nope. ze-ro. don’t waste your time on this sucka!
until next time – beauty always, e
