Cover Girl & Olay Simply Ageless serum primer

17 Aug

The job hunt and my search for my camera charger has kept me away for a while, but I’m back! (Please excuse the absence of a photo in this post, my Flickr search for “makeup foundation” yielded some startling results.)

I constantly rub my eyes, wear contacts and have allergies so once I heard about Mary Kay Eye Primer ($12) a few years ago I started using it religiously.

Since then I’ve kept my eye out for a drugstore brand foundation primer and bought the Cover Girl & Olay Simply Ageless serum primer ($16) as soon as I heard about it.

I’ve only used the primer for two days, but I already love it!

This is why I think it’s great:

  • It feels light on top of sunscreen and moisturizer
  • My skin feels smoother instantly
  • Foundation stays put when I use blotting sheets

I think this is going to be a regular in my makeup bag because I don’t know if I could go back to not using it every day.

Are there any makeup primers you can’t live without?
