HELP! Primer needed.....

I NEED Help!

Just far to many to work my way through and I'm already spending a fortune on different foundations

I'm desperately searching for a Primer and really struggling - just don't know what to try!

Obviously I want my makeup to last at least the working day, but my main concern is that I want to try and even out my complexion.

I have issues with my pores and suffer from abit of redness around my nose. I would say I have dry to combination type skin. The usual rubbish of a shiney nose and chin but with the added joy of dryness on both as well (this has really improved recently so I don't want something to affect this).

So I was hoping that someone out there may be able to point me in the right direction.
Any suggestions Welcome!

I think you should give L'oreal Studio Secrets Anti-Redness primer a go. I have the one for dull skin and love it. Will helpfully sort out the redness around your nose and even your skin tone out, like it does mine.

i have been using the L'Oreal studio secrets primer for a while now, i do love it BUT its best on my under eyes and the fine lines around my nose and mouth area. I wouldn't say its the best for an all over primer. I think the make up forever matte primer is good. I have heard alot about it. Not sure if they UK sell it but look into that one! :D

@georgie - want to try the Makeup Forever but also not sure if in UK. Will definitely will look into it. Thanks

I'm writing my blog about this as we speak. I've tried 15 for this blog, so you may want to check it out when you have the time. I also have combo skin with dry cheeks/oily T zone. :)

I love the NARS primer the most from all primers I have tried xx

BittersweetKindaNew said...

@Bold as Love - I'll check it out. I think thats what I may need to do haha

@DaisychainsNkisses - a lot of people are saying good things about the L'oreal studio secrets - only concern is that it may break me out

@Ansa - haven't tried any NARS products so may have to give it a go

Thanks for all the help girlies

Hey great blog!~I NEED to find a good primer! I'm so picky and don't like heavy products for primers!~

Let me preface by saying I have not tried this one yet but plan to soon...the mineral face primer by e.l.f. I've loved almost everything I've ever tried by them, which is a LOT of stuff, and I'm excited to try it! It will barely cut into your wallet at all even if you don't like it! It's only $6. It has a LOT less ingredients than most primers, certainly less than the drugstore ones, which I'd think would reduce your chances of irritation.

i've tried many in search of a great one.
I have combination skin, oily and dry areas.
A great one is smashbox, i bought the regular one but a bit greasy for me, great for normal skin
i bought the other one, for greasy one and it is fab about £28 but worth it, so i recommend this one
hope this helps you
let me know if you decide on buying and what is your opinion
