Here's Sara again of the blog I Play The Villain. This time, she's writing about the Mary Kay Foundation Primer.
Fact: I'm not big on primers. It's not that I don't like them, I just don't use them enough for me to consider them an important part of my routine. I only wear primer when I go to events or when I have meetings that would require me to be out of the office for a good chunk of my 8-hour shift. Other than that, I find that I have little use for primers as I do not oil up as much and I like my foundations to be long-wearing to begin with.
Still, my last primer - a sampler of the Korres Quercetin & Oak Age-reversing Primer - ran out and I've been searching for a possible replacement. So when I got hold of the Mary Kay Foundation Primer (P1,300), I decided to give it a spin!
I only apply a pea-sized amount of product on my face using my fingers, dotting it all over before blending it out. Not a whole lot, mind you, just on the T-zone where I tend to oil up a bit (there are areas where my skin isn't a complete desert) or where I need the foundation to last longer or where I have rough patches.
The primer's consistency is gel-like as opposed to my Korres which is reminiscent to that of a moisturizer.
