I'm pretty sure that if you ask any person that is obsessed with makeup that they will be able to tell you what product that they just can't get enough of, no matter the brand, consistency or its effectiveness--they just must have more of it. Now, obsessing over makeup is one thing but fawning over a particular makeup product is another. This product is normally the product that we consistently sought out despite our growing collection and will always continue to go after it. Mines happens to be face primer. Let me explain....
When I first started out with makeup I never wore face primer because I figured that there was no use to it. That was until I was introduced to the powers of Milk of Magnesia (that's another post) and I was hooked. The use of face primer aids in neutralizing the face palette for even distribution of foundation or powder and it can also prompt you to use less foundation because it will go on smoother with it. At the current time of this post I have about six primers in my possession and I'm sure it will continue to grow once I find the "next best face primer."
A couple of weeks ago I trekked to my nearest Ulta for no particular reason (this is how I end up spending money that I shouldn't) since I was in the area I figured, "Hey! Why not!?" While browsing through the aisles I noticed a new product from Revlon--a face primer! Needless to say I was getting not one but TWO since it was buy one, get one half off. One is a color correcting primer and the other a perfecting primer. The purpose of a color correcting primer is to neutralize any discoloration or hyperpigmentation of the skin before applying makeup or when used alone in addition to what it is already supposed to do. The perfecting primer is supposed to diminish the appearance of pores and fine lines.
Hmmmmm......I know you're wondering, what do they look like and are they good?

As you can probably see the correcting primer is pink (on the left) and the perfecting primer is white (on the right).
Here are some swatches of the products:

I have worn the perfecting primer only once but I want to wear it longer and come back with a more thorough review. Expect the same with the color correcting primer as well. : ) I hope that you all find some use for this post as you go out and venture on finding your favorite primer.
