Here is my opinion on the face primers i have tryed along the years...
Face primers help's your makeup last longer and makes an even canvas for any type of foundation, helps minimize the existence of pores and wrincles. It goes after moisturizer and before foundation.
Ive tryed smashbox photofinish primer, Rimmel London face primer and Mac Matte.
Silicone base primers are very silky when applyed and are very smood. such as Smashbox and Mac.
Rimmel has more like a creamy consistency and its absorbed by the skin leaving a smood finish, it has a sligth peachy tint to it but its not noticeble once applyed.
My face is very oily, and almost all primers after a wile tends to shine, but the good thing is that you only have to blot with a tishue and that no big of a deal to me no need for touch ups all day Its all good.
What i do like is that makes my face look very even and nice... I usualy use them on special ocations or when i have time to do my makeup... because its always one step more and takes more time...
* Smashbox: Realy good clear base makes my face look realy nice, i do have to blot excess shine but it is great. 4/5 stars.
* Rimmel Londo Primer: Its good for daily use, it does help minimice the aperence of pores but its more ligth than smashbox. 3/5 stars.
* Mac Matte: It has the same consistency as smashbox but it dosent do the same thing, i dont realy notice anything good from this primer, i would say blah for this "matte" it dosent matte the skin at all. I realy dont see the diference, i guess i have to give it another chance..i'll give an update once i get the hang of it. for now 1/5 stars..
There has been a lot of testing during my journey with makeup, one of the most dificult thing to find is mascara, so after trying a lot of mascara's from maybeline, rimmel london, max factor, in general all drugstore and hi-end like Mac and smashbox, and havent been impressed... I've heard about this particular mascara, the one you find on every drugstore in mexico.. That has been my Holy Grail since before i got in to makeup..
Its a mexican brand called "IM", its less than 2 dlls (16 pesos) and its awsom!...its also good for your lashes because its made from the bone of a fruit called mammee...
It dosent come with instructions..but after many years of use i have my own tricks...
Most important one is: Warm it up... with you hand... its so easy, the product inside warms very fast and once its like that its magic...
*Gives Leigth and Volume
*Totaly waterproof (you can swim with it)
*It dosent flake or smudge
*Dryes fast once aplicated
*Has vitamins "its a near natural product" made with fruit seads...and mammee bone (its also a fruit)
*Its blacker than black...
-You have to warm it up, it takes a minute...
-You can only remove it with a realy good makeup remover.
And let me tell you ... My lasher are stick straigth.... I have to curl them before mascara... And it holds my lashes all day long.... :D
Here are my shamefull bare lashes...
Hope this helps... If you are near the boarder you just have to cross and get it... Good Luck!
