meredithellebeauty
step 1- CAUDALIE - Limited Edition Grape Water
to prep the skin and get it damp before applying other products Step 2- #Valmont - Priming Hydrating Fluid[products]# First time trying something from this Valmont. Got this sample with my order from Rescue Spa a couple months ago. This is a primer, the formula is very light and watery and did feel hydrating on my skin. felt like it did an efficient job at priming however at this price point I would never purchase this! ❌ Way too overpriced for what it is. Step 3- DR. BARBARA STURM - Sun Drops SPF 50
lightweight chemical sunscreen serum that blends beautifully into the skin and leaves a lovely glow. I will purchase the full size when I run out for sure! This product makes me actually look forward to putting sunscreen on which is a first Step 4- WESTMAN ATELIER - Vital Skin Foundation Stick Atelier (for skin with undertones)
shade ATELIER 1- First time trying Westman Atelier and this foundation is just as good as I expected it to be 😍 It blends so easily into the skin and gives full coverage without leaving that thick filmy feeling that I usually get from wearing foundations or tinted products. I was using the kosas tinted face oil before this but I will be throwing that away now- it left an oily finish on my face and barely gave any coverage compared to this. Overall this foundation is a 10/10 for me. I will definitely be trying more from this brand I love how fool-proof and easy this foundation is. And the finish is gorgeous! Not to mention the packaging. Blended with HOURGLASS - Vanish Foundation Brush
Step 5- BY TERRY - Stylo-Expert Click Stick Concealer
shade 1 ROSY LIGHT- an easy concealer that also doesn’t feel too heavy or thick on my skin. Love this for covering up minor spots on my face and brightening my under eyes/brow bone/t zone ✨ it gives decent coverage as well. you can even wear this alone and use as a foundation if you want. Love the versatility of this formula and easy click-stick application Blended with CHANEL - LES PINCEAUX DE CHANEL Retractable Dual-Ended Concealer Brush N°105
Step 6- laura mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder
This setting powder is so INCREDIBLE - it leaves my face airbrushed looking with a soft finish while also sealing/setting in my makeup so it will stay in place all day! Love love loveeee. Applied with a LUXIE brush I got as part of a set. #CheriePartner

🕷🐈‍⬛🕯Friday the 13th & feelin cute!🕯🐈‍⬛🕷
I try not to be superstitious about a day or a number, but I still find myself thinking about it🤔 🍂It’s really feeling like Fall! Had the first snow of the season the other day, but now it’s just raining a lot🌧 Before I took better care of my skin, I rarely took selfies without makeup on, I just didn’t feel cute. Now I feel cute with a glowing face full of skincare & have kinda ditched makeup (which personally, also helped my skin tremendously!) I felt extra cute today & just wanted to chill & get cozy, but we have guests right now, so I decided to throw on my fav mascara & gloss for fun. ➡️ Everything on my skin, lashes & lips is in the next photo. GIVENCHY - Phenomen’eyes Mascara Is my ultimate favorite mascara! I truly miss the brown shade this used to come in, but that’s just me, loved it for my lashes (& brows when I was lazy) The brown shade was not great for every look, but it was so soft & natural looking. This black shade is your basic, classic black, I’m just so in love with the formula & applicator. 🏰The comb reminds me of that medieval spikey ball weapon thing. Love it. It makes it super easy for me to control where I’m applying, & keep it light, feathery & clump-free (my personal preference for an everyday mascara look) I love how i can just sort of “kiss” my lashes with this product, especially the bottom line, so effectively. ✔️You can definitely get a more dramatic effect with this mascara if that’s what you’re going for! 🖤The thing I love most is how the formula really holds my curl throughout the day! My tricks for lashes is start with a great curler. This will be different for everyone, because we all have different eye shapes. My eyes are not deep set at all. My lashes aren’t particularly long, but my lashes sometimes graze the inside of sunglasses for instance... My perfect eyelash curler has a less pronounced curve than most standard American market curlers, which helps get me the perfect curl with no pinching at all! 🛍I also use a FREE spoolie (yes I’m that bitch at Sephora) to comb out any clumps. SHISEIDO - Shiseido Eyelash Curler I also always have these on hand, so I’m never with a cracked/split one, save your eyes from injury & hidden bacteria: SHISEIDO - SHISEIDO Eyelash Curler Pad I wish Sephora carried these! They’re only $6/2 pack-but annoying/wasteful to buy without free shipping-unless I buy tons lol. *i always curl BEFORE mascara! As the mascara is kinda drying I use clean fingers to sort of push them up to curl a bit more & have it hold! ⚠️You may be tempted to use a curler at some point AFTER mascara. Though I did it 1,000x without incident, the one time I pulled out over half my top line was it for me! Proceed with caution. DIOR - Lip Glow Oil So moisturizing & not sticky! Lips look alive & plump!💕 NEST FRAGRANCES - Bamboo Candle 🕯Jasmine/Amber vibes, warm, perfect for Fall🍂

💀 𝖍𝖆𝖚𝖓𝖙𝖊𝖉 𝖍𝖞𝖌𝖎𝖊𝖓𝖊 🦠
🎃𝕳𝖆𝖕𝖕𝖞 𝕳𝖆𝖑𝖑𝖔𝖜𝖊𝖊𝖓 𝖊𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖞𝖔𝖓𝖊! Good hygiene is rudimentary & necessary for everyone. For those of us suffering from acne, it can be a constant chore to keep bacteria away from our faces. Scary!🦠 I used to get intermittent breakouts & pimples throughout my 20s from a combination of things like partying a lot, staying up all night finishing projects for school & sleeping in my makeup constantly... Since those days, I have a solid skincare routine, don’t wear makeup much & I have learned so much about the hygiene steps it takes to have clearer skin. 🧫Most of what we learn about forming basic hygiene practices is from our upbringing. Growing up I knew my house was dirtier than other kids, but didn’t quite see the disservice my parents did until I was older. We can’t physically see bacteria, so it’s easy for some of us to put it out of our minds throughout the day. 🧼In addition to washing your face twice a day etc... I made some slides about hygiene tips to remember with help from Hello Kitty🎀 My skin has improved so much with these steps: 1. WASH YOUR HANDS ! Pretty obvious. We should all be doing it considering the current circumstances anyways. I actually always wash my hands before I wash my face. 2. CLEAN FACE TOWELS I lived with my parents briefly last year, what a nightmare... My dad was always using my cute face towels to wipe his hands after working construction & shit... I couldn’t get him to stop, even adding a second towel didn’t help. Now my roommate totally respects my towel & understands that a clean face towel is crucial to keeping my skin clear. A damp towel allows bacteria to proliferate. Face towels can be quite inexpensive, grab as many as you need depending on how often you do laundry🧺 3. CHANGE THOSE SHEETS Ideally everyone would change their sheets once a week. I’m sure we all know some people ( I’m looking at you straight men ) that wait a lot longer than that... If you have body acne, you may want to change them 2x weekly. Your body is constantly shedding dead skin cells, about 1.5 million every hour. Sleeping in clean pajamas can prevent some transfer, but if you toss & turn a lot, you could be shedding even more. 4. AND THE PILLOWCASE ! I change my sheets once a week, but I change pillowcases at least twice as often. No matter what type of pillowcase you use, at least a weekly wash is a MUST! In my college days I was always crashing at my guy friends apartments, & often carried my TP 🧻in my backpack... in retrospect I wish I had my own pillowcase (& face towel) because I swear I got a pimple every time I slept at my one friends place😩 5. EXTRA MEASURES IF YOU HAVE PETS I let all my animals in my bed I can’t help it but try to keep em off the pillows! 6. SANITIZE YOUR STUFF I always have alcohol pads on hand! These are great for spatulas & tools. 7. +SURFACES Light switches, handles etc. 8. WASH MAKEUP BRUSHES Properly cleaning your makeup brushes frequently is so crucial for clear skin!

Get the Best Base Makeup in 10 minutes!
Personally I wear makeup everyday. For base makeup, I use sunscreen, primer, foundation and concealer. Here are the products I bought last year and have been using them ever since. 😘 Elizabeth Arden REVAGE City Smart Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Hydrating Shield Elizabeth Arden - PREVAGE City Smart Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Hydrating Shield: I think it as a makeup product by me because it is tinted with color. Sometimes when I don't want heavy makeup on my face, I'd just use this after my routine skincare. After that, I'd just apply concealer and finishing powder then, ta-da! Base makeup complete.😉 MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Perfector Blurring Skin Tint (Shade: 4 Golden Sand) MAKE UP FOR EVER - Ultra HD Perfector Skin Tint Foundation SPF 25: It has a lightweight finish and when applied with concealer and makeup setting products, the makeup can last for most of the day. The only drawback is that there are only a few shades available. It Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout Full-Coverage Concealer (Shade: Medium (W)) it Cosmetics - Bye Bye Breakout Full-Coverage Concealer My friend recommended me this product when I had an acne flare. I was told that my acne would disappear after just a few days, and I have to say that it really does work on red swollen acne! Amazing!😍 By Terry Stylo-Expert Click Stick (Shade: 4.5 Soft Beige) BY TERRY - Stylo-Expert Click Stick Concealer It covers my under my eyes well and is not very dry. It has good coverage, but doesn't make my makeup look too heavy. Heavy under-eye makeup tends to result in coarse makeup. This product is just moderately lasting.

✨✨Fenty Foundation Wear Test ✨✨
FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation trying out this new foundation sample by fenty. Kept me nice and matte for majority of my wear. A touch of oil did start to peak through but that was with about 8hrs with of wear. It oxidized a touch so I think I’d get a shade lighter to try out. NYX - Epic Wear Eye & Body Liquid Liner love this liner. It’s dark and easy to apply. A little hard to remove, even with my professional products. But I do love it benefit - Precisely, My Brow Pencil Waterproof Eyebrow Definer this was my go to after I ran out of my Mac brow pencil. I like that it has a little more length to the pencil so I can hold it better. I wish the product was a little firmer so I’m able to make more defined hair strokes. laura mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder love this setting powder. Sometimes I’ll use a powdered foundation if I need a little more coverage but I typically set my whole face sigh this powder. I don’t bake since power dries out my under eye area but this powder keeps my skin smooth. It also blends well with my contour powder and my highlight powders.

Reasons to have a brush and a beauty blender for my foundation!
I believe we all have that kind of moment when we cannot find the makeup tool or there are just so many of them which make it hard to choose wisely. It is always smart to prepare two application tools for the similar makeup step and I have to say I really appreciate myself for doing that because it has saved me a lot of time. Also, using the same tool for a long time can wear it out more easily and quickly, and you may have nothing to use if you have just washed it.    The most important step in my everyday makeup is foundation and that’s the one which needs two applicators for me, a makeup sponge and a foundation brush. It is important to invest in them since when you don’t feel like using one tool, the other one will save you from it. For example, when my face is dehydrated and even my moisturising cream can do nothing about it, I will use a wet sponge to apply foundation to prevent more hydration loss. A brush is more suitable when my face feels good and smooth with enough moisturising to provide a seamless, flawless foundation base.   The sponge I use is from beautyblender, a famous makeup sponge brand. It is pricy compared to the drugstore sponge, but it is worthy. It absorbs a lot of water and is super soft on skin. My habit is to squeeze a pump of my foundation and put on my nose, cheek, forehead and chin and then use this beauty blender to gently press the foundation evenly all over my face. In this way, the beauty blender gives a light, comfortable foundation application. Also, when my face is a bit flaky, it will not make it worse like the brush.   My way to use the brush is similar to a sponge, just to put one pump of foundation on my face and gently glide the brush all over my face. The different thing is that I only use it when my face is in a good state with no obvious flakes since the brush will hide some foundation under them and create some patches on face with uneven skin colours. My choice for the brush is Hourglass. The price of this brush is quite high, about two times of the beautyblender sponge, but I think it is worth it. It gives me a very nice feeling when using it, and it is easy to grab in hand with a chic style. The face also looks super even and natural, with no trace of foundation left.    I like both of these two tools and they work so well on my face! I have to say they are great products worth the money.

My favorite foundation at the moment!
This is a cream based foundation! It can also be used as a concealer. It looks so natural and lays beautifully on the skin. This product is formulated with active ingredients that help combat redness, calm irritation, even out complexion , and boost moisture! It’s formulated with no silicones, no parabens, no PEGs, no talc, phthalates, or synthetic fragrances. Also it’s vegan and no animal testing! It’s such a beautiful natural foundation. I’ve been using this for a while and have had no reaction at all. It’s been super gentle on my skin. It hides the hyperpigmentation that I have and conceals any dark spots. Other products also sit on the foundation really nicely. WESTMAN ATELIER - Vital Skin Foundation Stick Atelier (for skin with undertones) I give this 5/5. The formula is luxurious and the product works really well with my skin. It’s also a natural product so I feel good using it. Have you tried this foundation? What’s your favorite at the moment?

Some of the best complexion products
There are only 18 shades total and this includes theirs shade expansion that they dropped this summer. I am either usually a light medium (neutral undertone) in the cooler months and tan me is medium to medium tan (warm undertone). The Vital Skin Foundation by @westmanatelier has the most beautiful foundation formula I have ever tried. I have super temperamental skin and am in my late 20s so have quite a few fine lines but this foundation makes my skin look filtered and flawless!! It has the most perfect natural finish. I only set my T- zone and under my eyes and it leaves the most glowy, your skin but better look! It does not settle into into fine lines and does not break apart or separate. Does not accentuate my dry patches, instead it works to soften and heal them. It retails for $88 CAD/ $68 USD, a pricy foundation but definitely the best formula I’ve ever tried. Their shade range is small and that makes not very inclusive. They have 6 shades that range from their fairest to light mediums (I’m shade Atelier III), 6 shades that range from medium to tan (slightly deeper tan) and 6 shades that range from deep to dark. So even though it’s pretty evenly distributed but there still isn’t a lot of options. The formula is lovely and it’s a shame that more people don’t have the option to try it, so I wish they’d expand the range. The blush Baby Cheeks in Dou Dou is a beautiful rosy shade that would work on a whole range of skin tones. The formula is beautiful, hydrating, and gives a flushed but glowy look to the skin. It’s a multi use products that looks and feels amazing on the cheeks and lips!⁣ Their Baby Cheeks Blushes retail for $68 CAD and $50 USD. Pricy but it comes with 6g of products and again the formula works like a multi stick so I’m okay with it. I picked up the shades Chouchette and Petal. Westman Atelier products are clean, cruelty free, nourishing, skin safe and contains Caper Extract, Organic Jojoba Oil, Vitis Vita Grape Extract, Berryflux Vita, Camellia Seed Oil, Coconut Oil, Cocoa Seed, Mango Seed, Capuacu Butters, and Biomimicry Technology and does not contain Parabens, Sulfates, PEGs, Phthalates, Formaldehyde donors, Mineral Oil, BHA and BHT, Hydroquinone, Mercury and Mercury compounds, Retinol and Gluten. Have you tried any Westman Atelier products ? What are your thoughts? What’s gone favorite foundation and cream cream blush?

Smashbox Powder
Smashbox Powder
A whole different kind of Texture Tuesday 😉🖤 Powder foundation is something I’ve been trying to explore lately but most days it ends up being a setting powder for me. The @smashboxcosmetics Halo Hydrating Powder Foundation component is really satisfying! It has a grinder mechanism that allows you to “shave” the desired amount of product you need for the day. It’s light coverage and very lightweight on the skin. I have oily skin and it helps set my liquid foundation while keeping my oils at bay. I think someone with dry skin would really like this as well because it’s not your typical matte, dry looking powder foundation. It has more of a natural finish that’s very flattering. This is definitely something I will keep using to set my foundation on days where I need just a little bit extra coverage. 🖤

My fool proof routine for the perfect base!
My fool proof routine for the perfect base!
Forming a base routine can be so tricky, time consuming, and expensive! Especially with my combo skin! When I wear foundation this is the routine I follow. After my skincare has had a few minutes to soak in, I start with sunscreen! Sunscreen over long term use is going to help your skin look more even and bright! It’s so much easier to get the glass skin effect when you don’t have dark spots or an uneven tan. I’ve been using the LANCÔME - Absolue Premium BX Regenerating and Replenishing Care SPF 15 Skincare but there are certainly cheaper options out there! (I’m a big fan of the COOLA - Classic Face Sunscreen Moisturizer SPF 50 ) Next, I spread the LANEIGE - Glowy Makeup Serum all over my face. It’s very emollient and spreads easily on the face without being oily, so I feel comfortable even using this around my t zone! Then I fill in my pores with the e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer Moving my finger in circular motions I apply this to my t zone: inner cheeks, center of the forehead and chin. This is typically when I would apply eyeshadow, but I only used one shade in my crease today to focus on the face. It’s the ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Norvina Eyeshadow Palette shades Love and Incense mixed. Then I move to the under eyes. I use the BECCA - Under Eye Brightening Corrector Because I am fair to light and have a pink - neutral undertone this works as a concealer for me! If you are yellow or strictly neutral this may not work for you! I use my finger to gently pat this on my under eye starting towards the inner corner and blending outward. Next is foundation. I use the AOA studio - AOA Wonder Blender This is the best beauty blender dupe I’ve ever found and it’s only like $1. I pump two pumps of the ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation on the back of my hand and start blending it out using a sponge. I do make sure to blend it on down my neck so I don’t get a foundation line. I am in the shade Ecru. Then I dip into my NATASHA DENONA - Diamond & Blush Palette . Still using the sponge, I blend the cream blush (top middle shade) into my cheeks starting at the top of my cheekbone towards the hairline. This helps prevent getting a lot of product in the middle of your face where we want to bring light! With my finger I blend the cream highlight (top left) over the blush at the very top of my cheekbone. I usually line this up with the outer corner of my eye. If you’re a bronzer person like me, you can apply bronzer using a fluffy brush to your temples, nose, and outer perimeter of your forehead. I use the BECCA - Sunlit Bronzer because it has a sheen that makes it look so natural! This is the shade Bronzed Bondi. I finish by dusting a light amount of the Coty Airspun Powder #cheriepartner

Product review time!!! Full look on my page!!!
tarte - Lele Pons x Tarte Eye & Cheek Palette love this palette!!! Got it for Christmas and just now using it but it’s amazing. Colors apply well and I love the blush and highlighter too!! e.l.f. - Matte Magic Mist & Set honey this makeup is set in place!!! Definitely a dupe for Urban Decays all nighter setting spray for me!! e.l.f. - Poreless Face Primer feels great on the skin and smells amazing but it’s not very sticky which I look for in a primer. I feel like it was harder to apply my foundation on top of I had to apply a few layers before I was satisfied. COVERGIRL - TruBlend Undercover Concealer I used the shade M400 warm nude. It blended well with my foundation. Didn’t get rid of my dark circles though 😩 maybe I need to apply more? wet n wild - Photo Focus Dewy Foundation I tried caramel at first, waaaay too dark for me bust desert beige matched my skin perfectly. It went on nicely with a beauty blender and it’s buildable. It did what I wanted to which was cover up the redness on my face and it’s not heavy at all it barely feels like I have makeup on. However, I noticed you could see some of my dry patches on my face but I just applied a little more and it covered well too. It moved slightly when I was apply the powder but that was an easy fix as well. Overall I think I’ll be using it until I find something better. wet n wild - Photo Focus Loose Setting Powder love this powder!!! I used the translucent one because I felt the banana shade would be too dark. It didn’t make me look white or powdery like other translucent powders I’ve used in the past. Hopefully it keeps the oil calm in my t-zone!! 🤞🏽 MORPHE - Eye Got This Brush Set I received this in my boxy charm and I see why most MUAs use these brushes they’re absolutely amazing!! Makes me wanna replace all my brushes for Morphe!! Love love love love love!!!! 🥰😍 GLAMGLOW - MOISTURETRIP Omega-Rich Face Moisturizer I got this item in my boxy charm as well and I wouldn’t usually purchase a $54 skin care product on my own but I’m sold. It soothes my face calms down the redness and isn’t super heavy. You don’t to use a whole lot for this product to do it’s job. CLARINS - Velvet Lip Perfector it applies well, doesn’t run and is pretty much kiss proof. The color is very bold as well!!! ROCKINS - Big Fat Liner Black I’m VERY sketchy about velvet tip liquid eyeliners but this ones got me hooked. I usually use sex kitten by tarte and this one applies the same if not better. I only applied it once and lemme tell ya it’s BLACK!!! I look forward to using it to attempt my perfection at a winged liner.

Juno & Co Blur Powder + Babe Brushes 🌸
Juno & Co Blur Powder + Babe Brushes 🌸
I have so much that I want to say about these products from Juno & Co. Let’s first start off with the Blur powders - there is a brightening powder and an airbrush powder; both are loose setting powders but obviously the brightening would be more desirable for those who like that true brightening effect on highlighted areas on their face. I personally love love love the airbrush powder the most because of the tone of the powder; it has a slightly beige tint to the powder so it blends into the skin beautifully. The name of the powders, Blur, says it all - the powders minimize the appearance of pores, giving you a perfect even canvas to work with. The packaging is stunning - sleek, modern, frosted jar with a rose gold lid. Available on their site thejuno.co for $30 for both. Next we have the new Juno brushes and new Cloud blending sponge in black. Now if you’ve followed me for awhile or have seen any of my posts involving makeup brushes, you’ll know what brand made my all time favorite brushes, and I say that past tense because you guys, this brush set has blown any brush I’ve ever used out of the water. I’m not saying that my other brushes are trash by any means, or not great brushes, but these are definitely my new favorite and will be very, very loved. The bristles are irresistibly soft; I sat here running my fingers through them for a while because my mind was blown with how soft they were. The appearance of the brushes is so aesthetically pleasing from the grayish tinted white bristles, to the soft pink matte handles that blossom to a metallic pink. The brushes have the perfect amount of weight to them. I know people associate products that are weighty to be more luxurious, but I feel like brushes can’t be too heavy or they will then become uncomfortable to use. The length and weight of the handles is perfection. The Cloud sponge is suuuper soft as well; it has a great amount of squishyness to it, and expands well when wet. I love that it has a flat edge for baking too. Both available on thejuno.co - sponge retails for $6 and brush roll for $30!

My go-to makeup base
My go-to makeup base
It’s 95 F in Texas and I have oily skin. Do you know what that means? If I am going to wear makeup, then I need to moisturize, then mattify or the oil on my skin will eat my makeup like a contestant in a hotdog eating competition. With deep complexion and oily skin, I focus on keeping my oil at bay, concealing hyperpigmentation and smoothing my pores. I try to work with small amounts of product and build upon it to avoid looking like a cake face. I find that my makeup looks better when I do that and lasts longer. Tools: • NYX - Pro Brush 03 Multi Purpose Bufferingis the brush I recommend. (I wasn’t able to use it in the video because mine has just been washed.) In the video, I used a flat-top kabuki brush in its stead. • e.l.f. - e.l.f. Contouring Brush: I love this brush for contouring. • Undereye brush. I recommend e.l.f. - Flawless Concealer Brush Here’s what I used (in order of appearance): • Primers: boscia - Porefecting White Charcoal Mattifying Treatment Primer(formulated for oily skin with larger pores) and REVLON - Photoready Prime Plus Brightening & Skin Tone Evening Primer* • Foundation:laura mercier - Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundationin Ganache* • Concealers: Neutrogena - New Healthy Skin Radiant Cream Concealerin Java Deep 2 and (not pictured) MAYBELLINE - Instant Anti Age Eraser Concealerin Tan and Medium. • Contour: URBAN DECAY - Stay Naked Correcting Concealerin 90NN* • Powders: SEPHORA COLLECTION - MicroSmooth Baked Foundation Face Powderin Deep, LAURA GELLER - Baked Balance-n-Brighten(not pictured) and Sleek - Face Contour Kitin Dark 886 • Setting spray: Supergoop! - Holly x Supergoop!Defense Refresh (Re)Setting Mist SPF 40is a spray that I usually use because sunscreen is important.

bareMinerals - Matte Loose Powder Mineral Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 I wanted to love this babe considering it's very quick and easy to apply, but every single time I wear this within an hour my entire face turns painfully oily. While I do have a fairly oily t-zone, this makes it unbelievably worse. Didn't cover my dark circles or redness at all. More suitable for those have really nice skin and don't need or want high coverage. bareMinerals - BarePro Stick Concealer The texture is creamy but the coverage is not great. I bought this to cover my dark circles but it doesn't work. Maybe I should have dabbed the concealer many times to get a full coverage. No repurchase. bareMinerals - Prime Time Foundation Primer The texture is so creamy that it felt really greasy on my face .It felt really greasy on my face.  I don't see a real difference in how my foundation sits with this product vs. without it. IF YOU HAVE OILY SKIN DO NOT BUY THIS.
