So many primers, so little time....so I decided to do a little "product-off" of my very own. I took two of what I think are some of the best primers on the market and tested them out for a day: Nars Pro-Prime and Makeup ForEver's HD Primer. I love both of these products individually, but yet they both do their own thang. Nars Pro-Prime is a creamy liquid primer that helps minimize pore size and helps control the oil on the skin. Makeup ForEver's HD Primer is fabulous and probably one of my favorite products of all time. It helps with oil control and helps smooth out your makeup. Both of these products help makeup stay on longer and helps keep makeup from settling into pores.
To start my experiment, I washed and dried my face. I then added my eye cream for the day (preventative reasons of course y'all). Then I added a touch of moisturizer with SPF 45 to ward off premature aging and wrinkles (no bueno).

The winner of the day goes to......Nars Pro-Prime. Love!! After it was all said and done, the Nars primer conquered all. I noticed a visible difference in pore size and it felt like silk when I touched my face. I've used the Makeup ForEver Primer for a while now and it really is a great primer, but I'm definitely going to have to switch it up and start my day off right with the Nars Pro-Prime primer.
What do you guys think? Have you ever tried these products? What's your go-to primer?
