Battle of the Primers – Virtuous Makeup Review


When I first ventured into wearing makeup I had no idea about primer.  I never used it and didn’t think it was needed.  I still feel that way sometimes.

However, it depends on the ocassion. If I’m running a bunch of errands or work, I will just wash my face, and put on my BB cream. On the other hand if I’m going to be going to be out all day with an event at night. Primer. Primer. Primer. Please.

Below is a breakdown of some primers that we currently own and have actually tried.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind

– Decent value .85 Oz for $7.99
– Clear pink
– Great product

– May cause breakout
– Does not have any sunscreen

LA Girl Pro Prep

– I didn’t really care for this one…

– Does not have sunscreen
– not such a great deal .50 Oz for $5.99

Mary Kay Foundation Primer
– Has sunscreen
-Very smooth and makeup goes on great.

– A little bit expensive 1.0 for $18.00

Overall the Mary Kay is fantastic and wins this round!
