makeup primers I know and love

Primers..... I might have a hording problem.

This isn't even all of them.  (I found four more after the picture...)  and I have a couple more on my list to try (Loreal Lumi, I'm looking at you).

So many because its a mixture of those that came from Birchbox or Ipsy or the free gift with purchase at Dillard's, and purchases in the makeup aisles.

And, every time I'm in a makeup aisle, I say to myself... no! You dont have too much makeup. Get more!

The ones I love:

  • Estee Lauder (of course! the most expensive one is my favorite!) I actually bought this one, and its almost empty. I will be re-purchasing.  Its probably my very favorite. I use use the illumination primer on top of my makeup as a highlighter.
  • Loreal Miracle Blur:  I cant say it is a miracle, or even that it blurs, but the ads are certainly convincing and I like the smooth  and cool feel, and its a lot cheaper than Estee Lauder.
  • Put a lid on it. Can an eyelid primer still be considered a primer? Lets just say yes. Its my favorite for this. I also love that I can buy the "sample size" because a little goes a very long way.
Honorable mention: the pore-fessional by the Balm.

My least favorite?  Jouer, ybf, and Rimmel. Each of theses have too much color in them for me and turn my makeup a little orange.

What is your favorite primer?
