Create Your Canvas

I have been a slacker lately when it come to blogging, and I am truly sorry for that. Hopefully, I will get back on schedule now that 2008 has settled down a bit. This morning I was looking at my cluttered beauty product shelf and I noticed that I had three primers lined up in a row, and I thought what a perfect topic for my Monday post, comparing them head to head. After trying each of them a few times, here are my conclusions:

philosophy's The Present Clear Makeup: I tried this hoping to love it just has much as I love my other philosophy products, but I was disappointed. It feels much more like a moisturizer than the others, but then it creates a strange thick layer on my skin that actually makes my concealer harder to blend in, especially under my eyes. Next!

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer: I originally did not loved this product that much. I had heard so many people rave about it, but then the sample tube I got it in made it separate a bit. After a few more tries, I am now in love. It creates this amazing silky, matte finish on my skin. My favorite part is that then my concealer and foundation glide on like nobody's business. I am definitely buying the full sized pump bottle which will most likely eliminate the separating problem.

Laura Geller Spackle: I got a sample of this in a goodie bag from Sephora at this fancy New Years party I went to, and I am happy to say I really like it. It has a more dewy look that the Smashbox but it still makes my skin feel really smooth and ready for makeup. I might have to get this one too. It also comes in a pump form which will eliminate contamination.

Prime Lovely!
