NYC (New York Color) Cosmetics Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer- $3.99
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! I cannot say it enough! Not only is it super affordable and easy to find, since NYC is sold pretty much anywhere makeup is sold, but it kicks ass in value too! For example, e.l.f. cosmetics, which I also love, makes a primer ... that costs $6.00 (not too much more), but only gives you .49 oz .... NOT EVEN HALF AN OUNCE .. for almost double! And since NYC Cosmetics offers coupons, you can often get it even cheaper!
It's like a lotion consistency so it spreads really well and doesn't require you to literally empty half of it for one use. Once you rub it in though, it kind of turns to a gel-like consistency, much like many primers. Makeup smooths evenly over it and pores and minor flaws are faded.
It lasts as well as the high end primers and makeup stays set in place, not seeping into your pores. Your makeup will look exactly as it did when you left when using this primer. I am a huge fan and will definitely be repurchasing this item.
For the amount, being under $5.00 and easily found, and COUPONS ... it's a winner! Give it a try and let me know what you think! If you already use it, love it or hate it, let me know your thoughts and experiences!
