Does anyone use foundation primer?

I went to the store over the weekend and had a lady try to sell me foundation primer by Smashbox. It is supposed to even out skin tone and ready the skin for foundation. I have never used foundation primer. Have any of you and if so did you find it made any difference at all?

I've tried Lorac on Jan 16, 2007 @ 11:07 am

Sephora recently gave me a sample of Lorac oil free neutralizer to put under my bare minerals. It was amazing. My skin looked totally flawless and it got rid of any redness or unevenness in my skin. I plan on buying it next time I'm there, I loved it so much.

Sounds good... on Jan 17, 2007 @ 08:23 am

Thanks! I was told it would even out my skin tone under my foundation but I did not understand what the lady was saying and I am always weary to put new stuff all over my face since I have sensitive skin. At least now I know someone who has tried it and had it work for them!

what kind? on Jan 17, 2007 @ 09:48 pm

misschickie, do you know if there are primers for different skin types, or all they all the same?

good question on Jan 18, 2007 @ 10:29 am

I am curious about this as well. The sample I was given by Smashbox is clear so I thought it was meant to go on any skin type but who knows!

Primers... on Jan 19, 2007 @ 12:05 am

For some reason, I don't know why but I'm skeptical about using primers.. because it just seems like you're putting more make-up on your face! But apparently, it's different, right? I dunno..

That's my hesitation... on Jan 19, 2007 @ 11:07 am

I have sensitive skin to begin with so my hesitation with trying foundation primer is that it is just another layer of stuff on your face. The only reason I considered it is because I am told it has good stuff in it for you (very much like moisturizers do). I guess I will wait a bit longer and see if I can find more people who have tried it before experimenting on my face!

I'm not sure on Jan 20, 2007 @ 11:27 am

The stuff I put on my face was sort of yellowish (not clear). It was really silky and didn't feel heavy at all. Generally I hate putting extra crap on my face because I don't like the feeling and my skin is a bit sensitive too. This is the only one I've tried.
