If you can't just squeeze it out, cut the packaging open and see if you can scrape up the last bit of it. I did that with one of my foundations.

I'm afraid that's just the problem... I can't cut the package open because the bottle is made of very hard plastic... I was thinking of breaking it open with a hammer, but I'd like to keep the bottle for Back2MAC.

I hurried to a rather nearby drugstore yesterday evening and got me a Gosh primer. I saw on Makeupalley that a lot of people like this product. I used it this morning and I must say that the application was very smooth; it felt a bit oily and satin-like. I really hope this will give me the same effect as the prep and prime because it's about €7 cheaper. I even got a 30% discount ;-)
Thanks for the help though ladies!

Just to let you all know that the Gosh primer has so far succeeded in my test! I applied my make-up this morning (9 hours ago) and still no sign of powder/foundation stuck in the fine lines next to my lips and in my neck, which is always a problem. I guess I'm done with prep and prime! I always had a hard time spending €21 for that primer. It's only 30ml and it's a product I use almost every day. The Gosh one was €16,50 which is more affordable (but still more expensive than my daily moisturizer!).

Hi Everyone

I'm on the hunt for a face primer. I usually dont use them because I dont like the feeling of it on my skin...probably all the silicones. It just feels really kinda gross.

I've got combination skin thats prone to breakouts and easily clogged pores, so I feel like I shouldn't put anything extra on my face under foundation but so many of you guys use one that I think I should give it another go.

So far I've used:
QUO face primer [silicone based, kinda like Smashbox Original]
MUFE HD Primer...not loving it...still feels gross under foundation

I've been considering NARS primer but I'd love some suggestions from you all, it doesn't really matter what brand as long as its pretty skin safe [no breakouts!] It doesn't even have to be specifically a face primer, just any skin product that works good as a primer!

Thanks bunches

Re: Whats a good face primer? All Brands Welcome!

I just fell in love with Fyrinnae's new Silica Gel Primer-It is like $4 for a big tub of it. It made my foundation go on and look flawless all day. I used to use MUFE'S HD primer and this one is way better and so much cheaper.

i use smashbox photo primer light and im liking it so far . you have to put it lightly because the first time i used it i applied a decent amount but it still made my powder foundation come out really light .

I really hate the silicony feel of some Primers too but I know use the NARS one which feels much more like a light moisturiser and I love it!

It's the white one for refrence, not sure how different the other one is (apart from the SPF)
