Obsessed: Tarte Clean Slate 12-Hour Perfecting Primer

I’m so into primers these days and, after trying this version from Tarte Cosmetics, I’m totally obsessed. The Clean Slate 12-Hour Perfecting Primer is in the most adorable packaging (obviously I’m already sucked in) and my skin actually feels silky after I put it on.  I LOVE that feeling. And even though I don’t have particularly large pores, I do appreciate the fact that this primer really diffuses fine lines and lasts for up to 12 hours…cause really, there’s nothing worse than catching a glimpse of yourself in the mirror around 8pm and realizing that your makeup is ALL OVER your face, and not in the spots that it SHOULD be.

I Love It. You Win It: Hourglass Cosmetics No. 28 Primer Serum

I’m pretty into primers so when a friend told me that I simply must try out Hourglass Cosmetics, I obviously went right for their No. 28 Primer Serum.  It’s super silky and luxurious and helps strengthen the skin’s natural moisture barrier, even out pores and create a smooth, even texture for makeup.  And, fun fact, the “28” stands for the fact that the formula includes 14 essential oils, 10 lipid-rich plant oils and four vitamins.  And for you math genius’, that number totals 28.

Want one? You should.  

GIVEAWAY!  Follow me on Twitter and leave a comment on this post letting me know why you wanna try out this fab primer.  Contest ends August 28th at 5pm PST.

UPDATE: Many readers have emailed me saying that they’re having issues posting comments on my blog. If you are having trouble, send me an email instead and I’ll count that toward an entry 🙂 Email: QueenoftheQuarterLifeCrisis@gmail.com

Fusion Beauty PrimeResults Anti-Redness Primer

So I’ve always been a primer skeptic but recently I tried out Fusion Beauty PrimeResults Anti-Redness Primer and I have to say, I’m now a believer.  I always thought primers were all marketing hype to get you to spend more money on additional items that you “must use” but ok, I can admit when I’m wrong…and I was wrong this time. 

What I love about this line of primers (there are 3 others!) is that you can pick one that’s uniquely for you.  I chose the Anti-Redness Primer because well, I have a mild case of Rosacea that drives me bonkers.  The shade of this product instantly neutralizes the appearance of inflammation and transformed the red patches on my skin into a lighter, peachy tone.  But if you have acne, need some help fighting wrinkles or think you need some brightening up, there are 3 other primers from Fusion Beauty that are right for you.  Love it.
