Press Samples/ Purchased Myself
I think Cover FX has officially taken over my primer drawer. I have been using some of these for awhile and some of these are new to my collection.
Mattifying Primer– I have oily skin so I am always looking for a mattifying primer. If I see the word MATTE I am interested right away. This was one of my first purchases with Cover FX and I got to say, its pretty great! I use this one days where I feel like an oil slick (which is a lot!). It keeps me pretty matte but I do need powder touch ups throughout the day. Then again, I ALWAYS need touch ups no matter what I use! This also contains salicylic acid and helps with breakouts!
SPF 30 Primer– I use this baby when I know I am going to be outside for awhile! I like this because it doesn’t feel sticky or weird, which is what I always think of when I think of SPF. This primer is used a lot during the Summer. Since SPF is very important especially in the Summer, I will use this on top of a SPF moisturizer.
Calming Primer– This primer saved me! I burnt the crap out of my face after leaving a chemical peel on a wee bit too long. I was not a happy camper. Some of my usual makeup was just irritating my face and I DO NOT leave the house without makeup. This did not irritate my face and I was able to use some mineral makeup on top of it with no irritation as well! I bet this will come in handy for sun burns too!
Illuminating Primer– This is the newest primer to their line and its something I don’t have. It has the slightest shimmer to it, not like vampire glitter but a slight glimmer. I love wearing this under light coverage foundations. I like to wear this primer on days where I don’t feel like getting totally made up. I like how it gives a nice sight glow without any effort!
Want to play a game?! Can you guess which primer is which by the picture below?!
Do you use different primers for different skin concerns or do you stick with the same one?!
