Hard Candy Fast & Fabulous 12 Hour Long Wear Face Primer Review & Swatches

Hard Candy Fast & Fabulous 12 Hour Long Wear Face Primer

Hard Candy Fast & Fabulous 12 Hour Long Wear Face Primer ($6) is a newly formulated long wearing Sheer Envy facial primer that’s launching with the Hard Candy Spring/Summer 2015 Collection.

I should mention I am NOT a fan of Sheer Envy. The color correcting formulas that launched a few months ago are very poorly formulated and pill like mad. Do not want, do not like. So I must admit I was very skeptical of the Hard Candy Fast & Fabulous 12 Hour Long Wear Face Primer considering it has the same name as the original formula. If you recall Sheer Envy started off life as a lotion-like formula. Later on when Hard Candy introduced a few more versions the texture and formula was more of a silicone primer.

The newest edition combines both silicones and a creaminess that I actually liked and enjoyed using and even feel confident recommending!

Lumene Bright Now Blur Line & Pore Minimizer Review & Swatches

Lumene Bright Now Blur Line and Pore Minimizer

Lumene Bright Now Blur Line & Pore Minimizer ($19.99) is a new oil-free facial primer launching permanently for Spring 2015 at drugstores.

If you read my blog you likely know I dislike silicone primers and unfortunately Lumene Bright Now Blur Line & Pore Minimizer is silicone based. However, there are sometimes exceptions for me for example, L’Oreal Miracle Blur is a product I really enjoy. Which actually brings me to another topic, Lumene Bright Now Blur Line & Pore Minimizer actually is kinda of a dupe for Miracle Blur.

Let’s check it out!

Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer Review & Swatches

Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer

Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer is being added to the permanent line of Rimmel Cosmetics at drugstores this Spring. Lasting Finish Primer has already been released in the UK but this is the first time we’re seeing it here in the US so if you happen to be in the UK this might be old news to you!

I’m seeing a lot of creamy, hydrating primers this Spring which is great because my drier skin appreciates the extra moisture. I don’t really love silicone-based primers like Smashbox Photo Finish so these are perfect for me! According to Rimmel it increases the wear of foundation for up to eight hours after use!

Let’s take a look at Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer!
