Banila Co Prime Primer Classic is a silicone facial primer that recently came in my Memebox Banila Co Superbox. It couldn’t come at a better time since the one I currently have is nearing an end. I mostly rely on Revlon PhotoReady Perfecting Primer or Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector but when I want a more polished looks I tend to use Banila Co Prime Primer.
I have drier skin so I prefer silicone-free primers as they tend to be more hydrating for me and also silicone primers just pill on my skin or they feel itchy. But I have a few exceptions and Prime Primer is one.
Revlon Photoready Prime + Anti Shine Balm is a clear, transparent mattifying balm that’s a lot like the recently introduced Covergirl Tru Magic Skin Perfector Mattifier.
Revlon Photoready Prime + Anti Shine is marketed as a product you can use alone to minimize the appearance of pores for a smooth, natural finish on skin or as a primer, applied to skin prior to makeup. Or you can use like Mally Face Defender and applied it over your makeup to blur pores, minimize shine and oil, and create a smooth, soft finish on skin.
I recently purchased this at my local Bed, Bath, and Beyond and it should start popping up at other mass drugstores soon with a bigger push for Spring 2015 I imagine.
Let’s take a look!
Tony Moly Panda’s Dream White Magic Cream is a brightening makeup/cream base that eases the appearance of redness, dark spots, and dullness. I was excited about this because it quite reminded me of Tony Moly Ice Queen Multi Play Cream SPF 30 which I really loved! This just seems a new version of it but with new packaging…!
Unfortunately that wasn’t the case.
Sleek Makeup Control & Shine Prime ($11.99) is a new Oil-Free Mattifying Facial Primer to control oil and act as a base for your foundation. If you recall I happen to be the biggest fan evers of Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector which I consider one of the best facial primers ever.
Sleek Makeup Control & Shine Prime isn’t a dupe for it but the texture is very similar so I suspect if you love Becca’s as much as I do you’ll really love Sleek’s formula and might even consider it a nice beauty budget swap up!
Miguhara B.P. Cream is something I received recently in a Super Memebox! The Memebox was actually $23 so I was a little skeptical about the contents at first and whether or not the box was actually worth the shipping plus the price. Too many beauty boxes I’ve seen cost a good deal and you end up with deluxe size samples. The Miguhara B.P. Cream is actually full size however, Korean beauty and skincare is relatively cheap and you can get quality beauty products for around $5-$15 within Korean.
I wasn’t sure that the Memebox purchase would actually be worth the actual contents.
I’ve never actually tried Miguhara, nor have I done research on the brand. As an avid Korean and Asian beauty fan I was surprised the brand never crossed my regard. After doing a little research I was quite shocked that this full size tube is $36! My Memebox was filled with seven full size products so this product along took care of almost the entire cost of the box which was $23. Interesting!
Anyway, now that I analyzed cost.
