The Lipstick League – week of 11.3.14

Question of the Week: Do you use face primer? If so, what are some of your favorites?

EauMG’s Answer: Now that I use BB creams and cushion compacts, I use face primer a lot less than I used to. But, I do use it when I wear foundation. My favorite primer for my dry skin is Reviva Labs Makeup Primer (review here). It works well and the price is great. I also like Hourglass Mineral Veil (it has SPF 15) , Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer (has SPF 20) and Sunday Riley Effortless Breathable Tinted Primer (to wear under “sheer” formulas). Oh, I’m looking for an “illuminating” primer (or liquid highlighter), do you know of any good ones for me to try?

  1. I’m curious about the Reviva primer. I use Paula’s Choice super antioxidant concentrate as my primer. How do they compare texture wise? The only liquid highlighter I like is the NYX brand. I’m not sure they make it any more. I’ve had it forever. I’m golden light in most foundations.

    1. I’ve tried both and really like the PC one but I wear it under my moisturizer/sunscreen. The Reviva one is “heavier” and has some “slip”. I usually wear it when I want that perfect Old Hollywood/Vaseline smeared on the lens look 😉 It’s not something I use daily.

      I use Benefit High Beam right now but wouldn’t mind something champagne-y. I really should go to Ulta or something. It doesn’t seem like something too hard to find but I know when I’ve looked before stuff can be too dry and glittery.
