2019 favorites base products makeup foundation concealer primer powder

We only have a few days left in 2019 so time to gather my thoughts and my favorites and chat to you about them. In total I have 4 videos for you and today we are kicking things off with my favorite base products of the year. And I do apologize for the lack of blog posts, but apart from work being busy, my photohosting site has been down for days and my mom was admitted to the hospital last week too. In short, too much to deal with so my social media presence has been turned down to the bare bare minimum.

Becca First Light Priming Filter primer hydrating review swatch makeup look application

Let’s try out a high end primer for a change shall we? Usually I swear by drugstore primers. They are a product I go through quickly and I do not see much of a difference between my more high end and more affordable primers. For instance, one of my favorites is the Catrice Fresh It Up primer which I feel is a dupe for a much more expensive Smashbox version. So I hadn’t tried a high end primer since then. Time to change that by having a closer look at the Becca First Light Priming Filter.

catrice tensational 10-in-1 dream primer review swatch application makeup look

In the new Catrice line for Fall/ Winter 2019 they have included a new primer. Catrice changes up their line often and I sometimes feel like I have just finished reviewing the previous changes by the time a new product line rolls around. This primer was no different and it is not necessarily the case that the new product is also better than what was previously on offer. So I was curious with this new primer: is it any good? And more importantly: does it deliver on its 10 claims?

Essence You Better Work primer review swatch look makeup application

Last Monday I reviewed the You Better Work Fixing Spray and that wasn’t working out too well for me as it gave me an allergic reaction. However that doesn’t mean that the product itself is bad per se as it got the job done just fine in the end. The primer from the same line didn’t give me an allergic reaction, but it definitely didn’t wow me either. These are my thoughts.

Catrice keeps on releasing new products and one of those newer products is a line of makeup primer sprays. There is a line of Prime and Fine makeup fixing sprays, but primer sprays was something the brand did not yet have. This primer spray is one of two: the other is an energizing spray. Since I am all about that hydration, I decided to try this instead.

Whenever Catrice launches a new primer, I’m all ears, because I generally really like them. They are not only super affordable, but I also think they work really well. I love their hydrating primer for instance as well as their light correcting serum primer. This new primer promises to be water and sweatproof and perfect for an active lifestyle. How did I get on with the Catrice HD Active Performance primer?
