I won't lie to you, I gave up on drugstore primers a few years ago. I can't even tell you the amount of brands that I've used and they have never compared to the ones that I get from Sephora.
They have all left me super oily and really disappointed.
I was sent CoverGirl TruBlend Primer ($12.00 CAN) and literally I didn't pay that much attention to it. I was packing overnight bag a few weeks ago and then I realized that I couldn't find my usual primers. I was honestly freaking OUT! Since I knew where CoverGirl one was, I took it with me not really thinking that it was going to do much.
I was surprised.
The main points that I liked about it:
*A little goes a long way-won't waste product
*Perfect for sensitive skin
*Won't clog pores
This Primer is white and milky. The consistency isn't super runny and it applies like a lotion. Which is totally different from the two that I use right now. I applied it to the areas that I have the oil issue with. Starting with my forehead/t-zone and ending with my cheeks.
I was so happy to see that I was literally not oily at all for the whole event. I actually forgot my oil blotters and it really was not a problem at all. I didn't need it! I am extremely impressed by this product and glad that I gave it a chance.
Have you seen it in your drugstore lately?
