I use elf and it really is amazing! It leaves you face feeling so silky smooth before putting on foundation :)

BE do more than one primer; one is particularly good for toning down redness if this a concern.......I own it, so I'll look it out later.

I use BE, and when I first tried it years ago I found enlarged pores appeared to be visible. If you take a wedge foundation sponge and smooth in a downwards movement the pores will disappear. hth,

Thanks for replies geeks !

Tbh never thought of putting on the primer with a sponge always use my fingers !

My skins not red just got those brown marks which makes it uneven.

Hi - I use Bare Essentials Original Mineral Foundation. They also do a matte version, but I prefer the dewier look to the original. My shade, as in avatar is Fairly Light; best to see a consultant to get your match. hth x

I have BE brightening primer and it works well, but MUFE has a awesome HD primer also. They also have a HD finishing powder that is awesome, it is super fine and doesn't settle into my lines.

Dermalogica Barrier Repair.

Not a primer as such but functions as one fantastically.

I've just discovered Estée Lauder illuminating primer. Really like it and I wear it under the double wear foundation too.

I like using the Maybelline Instant anti age "the Smoooother" :p and i ve been trying the Porefessional!! which i think is a very good primer and reduces the looks of the pores on my cheeks but not me nose... i have a very oily nose area which kinda gets more oily when i use this primer though..
I got the porefessional primer sample from a magazine a few weeks back, maybe you can get it for cheap on ebay or something? :)
