This will be my first blog post related to beauty. It has been a while since I bought make-up. I just can't justify to buy more make up because I already have so much..and most of them I haven't even use it yet. But, last week I hit the pan of my Mac mineralize skin finish natural and also I am running out of my laura mercier primer so, I had to buy a new ones. So, when we went shopping last week, we stop by at Sephora and got me a new primer which is the Benefit Porefessional. I always wanted to try this primer because I heard so many good reviews about it. I have not tried this yet, so I can't really give any opinion about this product. On the other hand, I also got me a Mac mineralize skin finish in light plus, I used to be in light medium but the MUA said that they renamed them for some reason?!?anyway, I have always been a fanatic of this powder because it's give me a natural finish without having my skin oily.. (F.Y.I I have oily sensitive skin) this would be my 4th pan and it normally lasted me for good six months because I only put make up maybe 3 to 4 times a week depending on my mood, but normally I always have bare face (lol)I used to use Pur Minerals powder before and it didn't work out for me because within the two hour period of having the powder on my face I would look like a grease ball. My face would turn so greasy that it's not even funny. I tried to believe on that product but it failed on me. Okay, let's move on with the famous Laura Mercier Oil-Free primer this retail for $30 at Sephora. It is worth it? Hmm in all honesty I think it's not worth the price if this were under $20 maybe I'll say yes it's worth it. This product claims "perfect for all skin types. It create a smooth and invisible layer and protect the skin. Foundation will stay fresh all day". My overall thoughts about this product: It is an okay product for me, it's certainly not my holy grail because of the fact that it didn't really provided me a smooth layer,meaning my pores would still show after applying foundation, and also towards the end of the day my face would be slightly oily however,I like the texture or its consistency more like a gel formula. I also like that it doesn't smell anything which is a plus. But in the end I will not repurchase this product again. I'll give 3 out of 5 stars.
