I’ve been looking for a primer that would replace my MAC Skin Base Visage. My choices had been this or Laura Mercier’s. However, this one got the most positive reviews. I wanted something that is luminizing but isn’t glittery; like a cross between a primer and an illuminator that isn’t that obvious. I guess this is the closest thing to that. MAC has very visible glittery specks when swatched but not when applied. NARS Radiance Enhancing primer doesn’t have that kind of glitter, but it does a good job at giving that instant radiant look without being overly shiny.
As you have read before in my previous posts, I’ve been contemplating if I should get a primer and if I do which brand among the four good ones I have seen after scouring the mall and the internet for weeks. Finally I settled for MAC because 1. MAC seems to work well on my face 2. I think I would get the quality and amount I would pay for and 3. I don’t really know if I should test those other primers as failing isn’t an option (these primers are expensive dammit!) and MAC has great reviews.
+++ Eyeliner (preferably, Liquidlast Liner from MAC. It costs around…P1,300, I think? Need to drop by MOA tomorrow to make sure). It’s a waterproof liquid eyeliner that doesn’t smudge. Just exactly what I need. I have the Smashbox limitless eyeliner in Onyx and the MUA that gave me a makeover said that it should be called “Smudgebox” instead. Due to my oily skin and the weather here, the eyeliner transfers and decides it wants to sit under my eyes which isn’t a good sight at all. I’ve only sharpened the pencil a few times
