My Favorite Primers


Hello Beautiful Peachies! Happy Tuesday. I don't know about you but there's not much more than a good cup of coffee and a fresh face of make up that makes me feel ready to take on my day. Even the days when i'm staying at home in my favorite work out shorts and tee shirt I love to take the time to do my hair and make up, maybe not to the T like on the days when i'm going out but I still love to do my make up, none the less.

An important part of making make up look flawless is primers and I'm obsessed! I love me some primers so I thought i'd share with you, lovelys, some of my favorites.


+Benefit POREfessional
Ulta $31.00
This primer is amazing because it's not the least bit greasy or oily feeling.
It goes on so smooth and makes applying make up a dream.

+Too Faced Hangover RX
Ulta $32.00
The ingredients in this is what sells it for me, Coconut Water and Probiotics. It makes your skin glow!

+NYX Tea Tree
Ulta $11.99
I originally bought this product because I was trying to save money and ended up loving it so much that it has become a staple in my make-up routine. The smell is so fresh, it smells like green tea.

+BareMinerals Prime Time
Ulta $24.00
My friend who did my make up for my wedding used this on me and it instantly became my "go to". It's my every day primer.
It feels so soft and silky on my face. It's a keeper, for sure.

+Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Ulta $20.00
This one is a product I never knew I needed but can never live without. It's eye shadow primer. It keeps your shadow from creasing and helps it last all day. This stuff is liquid gold, y'all.


These babies are my beauty secret in my make up arsenal.
What are your favorite primers?

  1. Would you say that the porefessional primer is worth the investment over drugstore ones like NYX? I'm new to the primer scene and was curious which you would recommend. Thanks! :)

    1. That's a toughie because I like them all. I'd say that the NYX is great for everyday wear. It's definitely sufficent but I love the POREfessional for date nights and events because it feels incredible and it really keeps your make up looking good for longer + it minimizes pores-so that's a definite win for me! POREfessional is more expensive so it's my "on special ocassions" primer. It's worth the splurge!

  2. Benefit POREfessional is my all time fav! Followed by Smashbox's Photo Finish. I've started mixing primers and have had some different results but to early to make any definitive stances.

    1. Benefit POREfessional is great, it's one of my faves but the price keeps it from being my everyday wear. It's for date nights and special occasions. I haven't used Smashbox's yet. I may have to try it! And i've never thought of mixing them before. I'm interested to hear more about that.

  3. I haven't tried any of these primers yet. I like to stick to drugstore before I make a huge purchase lol

    1. I totally understand that. Usually I do, too but my friend who did my wedding make up bought me a whole bunch of BareMinerals, the primer was included. The BEnefit POREfessional I bought for cheap off Amazon and the Too Faced ones came in a make up kit I ordered form Ulta. So I was lucky enough to get to try them all for cheap before committing to them.

      As far as drug store primers go, it's NYX for me. That's my everyday wear. I want to try the Angel Veil from NYX. That's my next make up purchase.

  4. I love Porefessional! Definitely worth the price; I like to use it on special occasions. For everyday, I've been reaching for Nivea's Post Shave Balm for Men. A pretty nifty little primer hack in my humble opinion. :P

    1. I've been hearing about the Nivea Shave Balm and it blows my mind that it can be used as a primer. I have such sensitive skin that I'm worried that it might break me out though.

  5. I have not used any of these primers before. I use Tarte's timeless smoothing primer right now and I love it. I will def have to check out these other primers as well. I have heard good things about the Porefessional!

    1. These primers are all wonderful. I have to say that POREfessional isn't my everyday wear only because of the price. It's my date nights and special events primer. For everyday wear I go between NYX Tea Tree and BareMinerals. I think every woman needs the Too Faced Shadow Insurance though.

  6. Sounds like great primers. I will be checking them out for sure! :)

    1. Glenda, they're all wonderful and you won't be dissapointed with any of them. NYX and BareMinerals are my favorite everyday wear and POREfessional is my go to for date nights and special events. I do believe every woman needs the Too Faced Shadow Insurance though.
