Jules puts three budget-friendly makeup primers to the test and uncovers a dupe for a cult classic!
I tested the face primer again a couple of days after filming this video, using the same foundation and other makeup, and on quite a hot day. I wore the foundation for more than 12 hours, and again I couldn’t see any difference in performance. I wasn’t any less shiny on the primed half of my face, and my makeup didn’t wear any differently, so again a kind of non-result. For that reason, I can only really recommend it as a nice SPF to wear under makeup.
I also tested the Wet n Wild eyeshadow primer against the Urban Decay Primer Potion and couldn’t tell the difference at the end of the day – neither eye creased or faded at all. I’m even more enthusiastic about recommending the Wet n Wild one as a great budget alternative to the cult classic if you suffer from oily eyelids.
