Hello, my name is Lisa and I am addicted to primers. I am not ashamed to admit this addiction. Without primer…well, actually, without a GOOD primer…my makeup lasts for maybe three hours tops. I just have that kind of skin. With a good facial primer my foundation and blush can survive for 8 hours of fade-free wear.
Marcia teases me all the time for having a bazillion primers. Even with the obscene amount of primers I have on hand, I am always on the lookout for something even better. But I have to give the credit for my recent discovery to my partner. She insisted that I be the one to test Skindinavia The Makeup Primer Spray (4 oz. bottle $35) because it was different from the other bazillion primers I have, and she heard this one was pretty fantastic.
Another confession…I wasn’t particularly interested in trying this primer. I put it off for a long time. I am not sure why…I guess I just didn’t think that a wet, spray on primer was going to work, especially since my favorite primers tend to be silicone-based. Luckily, sometimes my partner knows me even better than I know myself.
Skindinavia The Makeup Primer Spray is a light liquid that feels like a very fine mist. It needs to be shaken well before spraying, and once on it dries in seconds. Unlike silicone primers, this doesn’t make my skin ultra crazy smooth. However, it does make it smoother, which helps my makeup apply evenly. What is the most impressive, though, is how it keeps my makeup from fading all day long. I don’t mean 8 hours…I mean 12, even 15 hours. I have never experienced anything like it!!
The Makeup Primer Spray is absolutely one of the best primers I have ever used. I can’t even fully articulate how impressed I am with it. While I love my other bazillion primers, I do believe this is my most favorite of them all.
Whether you never use a makeup primer yet or are a primer addict like me, you need this primer. It just plain rocks. – Lisa
