I am fighting a really big stupid cold, which has been causing misery for the last week. It's been tough to string a coherent sentence together!
Today, however, I can see through the fog, so I have absolutely got to tell you about the duo I've been all over lately!
These two babies layered leave a lovely glowy, velvety finish to the skin!
Benefit's The Porefessional, is one of the best primers out there. I have talked a bit about this primer before, with regards to anti-aging, but it's great for everyone! It has a silky balm-like texture which is light and comfy on. The Porfessional will work on all skin-types, as long as they're well moisturized. I have skin like the Sahara, so I use a hardcore moisturizer containing urea. This can leave me shiny and my pores look like little swimming pools! After I apply this, my skin is matte and lovely! This primer also has a Vitamin E derivative to protect from free radicals. A little goes a long way, so, $31.00 isn't really that painful!
Garnier's Ultra-Lift Transformer is a newer product. This product is a multi-tasker extraordinaire! It is said to hydrate, correct wrinkles, firmness and dullness. It starts off white, and then self-adjusts to the skin tone by using micro-pigments to brighten and correct. Brighten is an understatement! There is very slight coverage with this, but it has a spectacular blurring effect, which softens any imperfections. Even though the Transformer has anti-aging benefits, they're not aggressive! The anti-oxidants, peptides and vitamins will improve the skins overall health, regardless of age. Drier skins will need a moisturizer under this, like a bb cream would, but if your skin is combination, or normal you should be fine. I'm not sure how an oily skin would like this. I don't think it would be bad, but it might not be a homerun.
Don't forget the SPF Ladies!
I hope to be back on my feet, and back on your screens more very soon! This once a week ish has got to go!
Who has a combo that they love? Any primer secrets out there?
