Makeup primer reviews and application tips

With a long line of celebrity fans like Reese Witherspoon, Paris Hilton and Jennifer Hudson, Per-fekt Skin Perfection Gel is a multi-tasking product that claims to be an alternative to traditional foundation, primer, color corrector and powder. It can be used alone or after moisturizer to help even out skin tone, moisturize, reduce redness, hide pores and smooth out wrinkles. Sounds a lot like the Asian cult product BB Creams doesn’t it?

Just when I was about to give up on my 10+ years search for the perfect lash primer, I finally found the one! Lancome Ôscillation Powerbooster is the first vibrating power primer that promises to prepare and improve the lash surface for maximum mascara results while boosting the appearance of natural lash growth.

Most lash primers I have used in the past like Shiseido’s Dramatical Eyes tend to contain micro-fibers that stick to the lashes to make them appear thicker and longer. While this does make my puny Asian lashes longer, the fibers left my lashes heavy and droopy. Not to mention coating them completely with mascara can get really messy and the effect is only temporary (the fibers washes off with water).
