Does Primer really make a difference?

Does Primer really make a difference?

Postby lukesmom » Wed Sep 05, 2007 7:41 pm

I keep reading about all these posts about primer and have never tried it. I asked a friend of mine if she had ever heard about it and she said, "YEs, it's just one more thing to get you to spend your money on". So, I was wondering does it really make a big difference in your appearance by using primer?

Thanks!

If you use minerals make-up, especially pressed powder type, it makes a tremendous difference. It gives a much smoother, less cakey finish to your MMU. I also use a post spritz to "set" my make-up so that it lasts longer. I never used those things until about four months ago and I can tell you, for me, it's been a very good experience.

Also, you can get a tube of Monistat Gel Powder that is about $7 a tube, will last many months, and it is a great primer at a really small price.

I use Smashbox's Light formula and it does make a difference. I even wear it on the days I don't have time to fuss with foundation...it just smooths things out nicely.

I just started using the Monistat anti chafing gel, and wow! It's awesome for the price. I'm glad I heard about it.

"Monistat" is a brand, just like Proctor and Gamble, General Motors or Dell. Monistat makes many different products, the anti-chafing gel powder is just one and it's silicone based like most primers so it works as well as any of the higher priced ones, even better than many.

I found the monistat gel yesterday at Kmart..impossible to find anywhere else...i tried it this morning..i'm not sure what it is supposed to do except make make up go on smoother? I heard it kept makeup in place all day by absorbingoils and filled in any fine lines etc?Is there any truth to this? thank you

It is sort of like priming a canvas or putting conditioner on canvas before you create a painting. If gives a better base upon which to put your make-up.

I use another product (under product review board), Skindinavia finishing spray to set my make-up and so it looks smoother all day.

You might try the DIY board as there's discussion there regarding micro silica spheres for absorbing oil. I don't have much oil, so not a problem I need to fix.

I use a primer from Mac and it does make a difference. I usually apply the primer before my foundation...then my powder or blush depending on the occasion and the look I wanna get.
