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!
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
