Smashbox Photo Finish Primer to Go...

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer to Go... Price: $16 at sephora.com
This is a brilliant product. Whatever condition your skin is in, it blends perfectly to create a silky smooth base for your make up. It even fills in fine lines and wrinkles. The original is perfect, but you can also get it in green (to minimize redness), apricot (to conceal bags under eyes, veins, etc) and bronze (to suit a summer tan). If you haven’t tried this, invest in it now!


Laura Gellar Spackle under Make up Primer

Laura Gellar Spackle under Make up Primer Price: $25 at sephora.com
This primer contains speckles of bronze, so that it not only gives you a smooth face but also a healthy glow. Its velvety texture means it slides on easily, and it’s full of good-for-skin ingredients too. Its brilliant!


Make up for Ever HD Microperfecting Primer

Make up for Ever HD Microperfecting Primer Price: $32 at sephora.com
This is a light weight formula, which moisturizes, softens and nourishes to ‘love’ skin into glowing! It leaves a silky smooth canvas for make up, too. This worked wonders on my skin, although it is very hard to blend at times!


Too Faced Primed and Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer

Too Faced Primed and Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer Price: $30 at sephora.com
This is a one of a kind primer, as its made to wear with or without make up! The primer has its own silky smooth finish, and with just a little blusher, you can be ready to go. It even looks after skin while you wear it, and it looks hydrated, firmer and smoother when you take it off. It blends perfectly, and is so easy to apply.


Bare Escentuals BareVitamin Primer

Bare Escentuals BareVitamin Primer Price: $21 at sephora.com
This primer is best for those who need extra radiance. It leaves a very smooth canvas for makeup, and contains loads of vitamins which are great for the skin, and also creates a radiance boost. Be careful if you are pale, though, as this primer made me look far too bright.


Urban Decay Pore Perfecting Pore Potion

Urban Decay Pore Perfecting Pore Potion Price: $30 at sephora.com
This goes on thick and velvety, like a moisturizer, but soon blends down into a thin, soft matte finish. It contains oil-fighting particles, but looks just as amazing on dry skin, and it lasts all day, too! The container is unique, too, and allows you to control how much you need. A brilliant buy!


Fresh Twilight Freshface Glow

Fresh Twilight Freshface Glow Price: $36 at sephora.com
This is a very sheer cream, which boosts any skin to give it a gorgeous glow! This leaves a flawless canvas, and even repairs damaged skin. It keeps skin perfectly hydrated all day, and can be used alone or with foundation.

Using the right primer can transform your looks and give you flawless skin. What more could a girl want, right?!

I use Thatgal by Benefit and Perfect Touch (i think) by Clarins. They're alright, make my makeup stay a bit longer, but nothing amazing. I'll try these next time I go to sephora! Thanks

I also love Lancôme's primer. It makes your skin like silk.

I always want to try Laura Geller's. But now, you've put it in your list. I want to try it more and more. Yay!

I only believe in SheerCoverproducts as they are really good for pores and our skin!

Hour glass "Veil" makes a great primer. It makes your foundation water proof, sweat proof, and it makes your foundation look so smooth. Sephora sell this line.

Its like you read my mind!!! I was just thinking of buying a primer, but I didn't know which one to buy because I have never used one before...but your post definately enlightened me! thank you much, I'm going for the "smashbox" primer, can't wait!

Smashbox primer wasn't work well on my skin. I had combination skin but now it becomes acne skin after I used that primer. I asked some professional makeup artist who explained that all the primers of Smashbox have silicone which block the pore and cause pimples.

Thanks, you really helped out:) I'm going to invest in the smashbox photo finish primer to go. Never tried a primer before.

I've tried all but two of these (the Fresh Twilight and the Hi-Def) and they ALL made my skin even oilier than it already is. I did some research and it looks like the silicones in the product don't work well in combination with oily skin. Instead of making my foundation stay on, it made it feel sticky and rub off quickly. The best ones I've found for oily skin are the powdered formulas. I use either the Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil or the Mattify Cosmetics Loose Powder as my primer. The BE formula has a bit too much sheen though, and sometimes makes my face look oily. I usually stick with the Mattify Loose Powder to use before foundation because it helps soak up all the oil that usually builds up and ruins the finish of my makeup. It's also good to use before eye shadow to prevent creasing - which is a horrible problem for oily skin.
