I think it's great to know what people love, but just as interesting to know what they've tried and perhaps didn't love as much. So with each category my plan is to post a photo containing as many products as I can dig up, that I've used this year. Then I'll announce a winner, (some honourable mentions), a loser or least favourite and a mini sized review of each. I hope you enjoy and I would love to see some of your hits & misses for the year.
The first category....face primers.
I don't have as many products in this category as you'll see in others, because quite honestly I was a tried & true lover of Smashbox Photo Finish primer for years. I still really like that product but I have crowned a new favourite.
Favourite primer of 2010
|L'Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base|
I use this more than my Smashbox or any other primer. I actually love wearing it alone, on days where I'm wearing no other make-up, as it creates a soft air brushed appearance on my face & helps to minimize any pores or fine lines. The product itself is a cross between a mousse & a lotion in texture. The only thing I don't like is having to dig my fingers in to a pot to get the product out, so of course I'm obsessive about washing my hands thoroughly before I go near this. Love it!!
Best yet, this is a drugstore product that retails anywhere from about $9-13CAD, depending on where you find it, sales, etc.
