I'm after something for under a very matte lipstick to help it stay put longer and ease the (slight) drying it causes. Word has it that MAC is the best (and IME it often is) but I'd rather pay less if I can. THe MAC stuff it 17.50 euros for 1.5 grams which makes it almost exactly twice as expensive, gram for gram, as me lippy!
That said, I don't fancy spending a fortune on trying a series of cheaper things that don't cut the mustard and then buying the MAC anyway either. So, can anyone tell me what to do for the best? I'm not in the UK so UK supermarket stuff is out of my reach.
depends what you want the primer to do IMO. if you need to even skin tone use concealer/foundation (but can be drying). if you need it for moisturising and to improve colour longevity go for the balm type?
