Hard Candy : Sheer Envy Primer

I have seriously found my new primer, and it was only about $8! I've tried so many primers, high end, drugstore, you name it but this is by far the best one and the cheapest. I have tried the Smashbox primer and it's alright... but the price is just way too much for me. So I found this amazing one instead. First off it might not be the greatest for oily or breakout prone skin... since I've heard of this breaking people out before but you do have to know how to use this stuff and maybe that's why. You only need a pea sized amount, maybe even less if your skins oily, people use way too much of this stuff and maybe that's why its not working for them.

Currently I've been using the L'Oreal 'Magic Perfecting Base'. Ugh. It's okay... but it doesn't even say it will make your makeup last long on the package, and you have to use a lot of product to even get close to the same feeling of the hard candy one. Not to mention the pot is really small too. I compared the difference of the two and saw the Hard Candy primer did make my makeup go on a LOT smoother and even then the L'Oreal one. I also saw that when using the L'Oreal base my makeup settled into my pores and made it hard to blend it to look natural. With the Hard Candy primer my makeup had a really nice finish and looked, dare I say, airbrushed. :P To be honest I don't even think theL'Oreal base does anything for my skin... I hope they don't discontinue this anytime soon!!


  1. one question - where can i get this? i am a sucker for a primer! Sephora used to carry this i wonder what happened

  2. I've never used primer, so I don't know much about it, but I have looked at this the past few times I've been to Walmart. Maybe I'll have to pick some up to try it. o.O

  3. Sorry, i forgot to write where to buy it. haha As far as I know the only place is Walmart, could be other places.
