Happy hump day loves! I hope everyone had a great weekend (long weekend if you’re in BC). I was finally productive and decided NOT to hermit in my house for once, so I went out and enjoyed the sun (a little too much, since now I look like Mr.Crabs). This weekend in Vancouver was suuuper nice and hot, which was great for hitting the beach, but definitely not ideal weather for keeping your makeup on without melting…which is why primer is SUPER important!
Just like when you decide to paint your room, you need a good primer before putting make up on! A few weeks ago I was in Sephora with a friend, and I saw the Yves Saint Laurent “Touche Eclat Blur Primer.” The packaging was beautiful as most YSL products are, and the primer itself has little gold particles in it so it obvs looks super glam, but I was most impressed when I put some on my hand, because for the first time ever, I SAW MY SKIN BLUR. I didn’t buy it at first, because my head couldn’t justify spending $55CDN on a primer when I already had two at home, but a few days ago after thinking “jeez, if that’s what it does to my hand, imagine what it would do to my pores!”…I went back and bought it.
Apart from blurring your pores, this transparent gel helps with illuminating your foundation, isn’t greasy, and makes your skin as soft as a baby’s bottom! Another thing that I like about it is that it is enriched with four nourishing oils—corn oil, apricot kernel oil, passiflora oil, and rice bran oil, reducing fine lines and keeping my face from becoming dry throughout the day. Needless to say, it was worth every penny!
