Blogtober Day #2 - The Best Primer For...


Welcome to another instalment of The Best For... where I go through my favourite products for different purposes. Today is Primers, and I have to say that whilst digging out all the primers I own, I was massively surprised by my collection and how many I don't use so it's great for de-cluttering purposes too. But anyway, here's my best primers run down...

The Best for Matifying
I'm not one for a matte base, but we all get oily in the t-zone at some point, especially when it's super hot, so my pick is the Benefit The Porefessional Primer. This is an oil free, silky balm which also smooths out skin, controls oils, and you can even use it over the top of makeup throughout the day if you are getting a bit shiny - Speaking of which they do have a new product in their Porefessional range which is a balm stick used to get rid of oil on your skin through the day, which may be good for you if you are battling oily skin.
The Best for Longevity
When it comes to primers, they can be very confusing to choose one that will work for you, which is the main reason for this series that I am doing. But if you are looking for a primer that will increase the longevity of your makeup, the Maxfactor FaceFinity is your best bet. It doesn't really do much else for me other than keep my makeup on all day so if you have no other concerns and just want something like this, this is the best bet, plus it's available in the drugstore so it's pretty affordable.
The Best for All Rounder
This is my most recent primer purchase and I have been trying it out for over a month now and I have to say the Soap & Glory One Heck Of A Blot is the primer that does a bit of everything. It smooths over your skin to even out skin tone, blurs imperfections and diminishes pores and it also has Vitamin E to hydrate and give a slight glow to the complexion. My perfect go to primer for when I want everything.
The Best for Banishing Pores
Some may have thought the Benefit Porefessional would be the best for banishing pores but my favourite is the Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pure. As it's the pure version it's suitable for sensitive skin, and it is 100% oil free although it adds some hydration, and it also sweeps away imperfections and fine lines, as well as pores and uneven skin tone. I love this primer and when I run out of this sample, I will for sure pick up the full size. They have a regular version which has Vitamin A and C to hydrate, firm and detoxify the skin, although I haven't tried that one so I couldn't really agree or not
The Best for Illuminating
You all know by now that I am a sucker for a beautiful illuminating product. That's just my jam, and the Soap & Glory Hocus Focus Instant Visual Flaw-Softening Illuminator (wow super long name, I don't know why S&G continue to make their product names a mouthful) is a great illuminating primer to get that J-Lo glow going. It's also great mixed in to foundation or used on the high points of your face as a regular highlighter. Great product, great brand, great primer.
The Best for Hydration
Now for hydration, and when the Autumn and Winter roll around, a good hydrating primer is imperative for me. I have recently found the Too Faced Hangover RX Primer which has coconut water, Electrolytes and Probiotics to keep the skin hydrated. This incredible formula also smoothes brightens, revives and boosts skins radiance whilst still locking in makeup to keep it lasting longer. It's vegan friendly, Silicone-free and Paraben free.

I hope you liked this instalment of The Best For... and that you stick around for more. If you have any requests for what you would like to see on my blog then I would love to hear them.
