Is it just me or is there another “revolutionary” new makeup product introduced every freaking day?! Just walking into Ulta or Sephora (or even Walgreens!) sends many chicas into fits of hysteria, reaching for the nearest brown bag to regulate their breathing. It’s all so overwhelming.
So how can you know which product – among the sea of thousands – is the best? Which does what you need it to do? Which ones are worth the extra money?
Let me help. I don’t know every beauty product out there, but I’ve tested a lot of them and I’ll share the best and the worst with you.
Why this should be in your bag: This product is pricey at $40, but it is multi-functional. You can use it as a primer underneath your makeup, then throw it in your bag and apply it during the day to even out your skin and eliminate shine. It includes Photo-smart pigments. Okay, I have no idea what that means, but it must be good because it adds light to your face for an instant glow and makes you look refreshed even if you were up super late studying… or partying. Instant wonderful glow.
How to use it: This primer has a built in brush, which makes it portable. Just twist the base and the primer will flow into the brush. Apply the makeup to the back of your hand and swirl the brush in, then apply to your face to make your foundation last or to look instantly refreshed.
Could my money be better spent on a bottle of Absolut? Tricky question. If your skin tends to get oily and you need a primer, then the portability makes it worth it. If you just want something to carry around to refresh your face throughout the day, there are cheaper products. And if you want something that does it all, this is definitely a trade up from a bottle of Absolut.
