Hey, it's been a while since I did a Beauty Wishlist post! Recently, I've noticed myself getting annoyed with my usual primer- it's just not working for me anymore. I've been wishing after a lot of different primers, but these are the ones I am considering purchasing the most!
1. Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer, $40 CAD
This sounds like the primer of my dreams. It's purportedly soothing, smoothing, and moisturizing, and smells like coconuts. It sounds exactly like what I need in the morning to refresh my tired, flaky skin. And I'm bonkers for anything coconut-scented!
2. BECCA Backlight Priming Filter, $46 CAD
I don't exactly know why I'm so crazy over this- I think it's because it looks so luxurious, and I love anything that helps me to get my glow on. I'm slightly worried that this might emphasize my pores, though. I really want to get a sample of it to try it out!
3. Laura Mercier Foundation Primer- Hydrating, $43 CAD
Just what the doctor ordered! The main reason I use primer is to smooth over my dry patches so that my foundation doesn't stick to them. A hydrating primer is exactly what I need. It's like I need my face to drink a glass of water before I put my foundation on (I've tried moisturizer but it makes my foundation slide off my face).
4. MAKE UP FOR EVER Step 1 Skin Equalizer Primer, Nourishing, $43 CAD
This primer is supposed to be "for constant dryness", which is definitely what I have. I've heard a lot about these Step 1 Skin Equalizers being amazing, and I didn't know if I should choose the smoothing or nourishing one, but since I already have some silicon-y primers, this nourishing primer would be a worthwhile addition to my routine.
5. Sephora Collection Beauty Amplifier Afterglow Primer & Luminizer, $20 CAD
This seems like a more affordable version of the BECCA Backlight Priming Filter, and therefore something I'd be interested in. I'm waiting on reviews for this product, and if I see some positive ones, I'll snatch it up! It's practically drugstore price and Sephora Collection makeup is really underrated.
