Inexpensive Makeup Primers

As someone with an oily face, I need a good face primer to keep my makeup on longer. I’ve tried a good variety of primers, but have yet to try a couple more pricy options from Sephora/Ulta like Nars or Makeup Forever. Somehow I find it hard to justify paying over $30 for a primer that’s translucent and goes under your makeup, however I do realize some options like Smashbox’s $36 Photo Finish Primer are worth it. Everyone needs a great face primer for those special occasions. But I’ve found some reasonable alternatives that work great for every day use – all for $30 and under!

Inexpensive Face Primers

Maybelline Baby Skin

NYX Face Primer

Loreal Miracle Blur

Tarte Face Primer

 

Too Faced Primer

One primer that didn’t meet the $30 cut off is Benefit’s POREfessional, but it’s only $31. It was not included because they were sold out at my Ulta, so I couldn’t properly compare it with all the others I was able to purchase. However, from past purchases, I’ve really loved it.

What about you, what inexpensive primers are you currently loving? I’d love to hear! xo

    The Loreal primer sounds like a winner, I have yet to try any primers but have heard Laura Mercier’s is very good.

    Thank so much for stopping by my blog, I hope you visit again soon.
