Have used several, Laura Mercier, Benefit and currently using Smashbox, which I would say is my favourite, I tried the Boots No7one which was very disappointing!

Watching with interest as I have tried loads in the past and none of them were that good TBH. Every time I put them on they just slid off within an hour, so I just don't bother wearing make-up, except on the extremely rare occasion.

Don't know what happened there it was meant to say lancome la base

Lancôme la base is my favourite and I have tried alot!

Collection 2000. Seriously. It's about six quid, I've used pretty much every other brand's primer available and none of them come close.

I love the no.7 one but it's the first primer I've ever used. You mean there are even better ones?!

Philosophy The Present...think it's about £22 but you get 60ml for that. Best I've used...

I like mac, smash box and Laura Mercier. On the cheaper end I also find Rommel primer is decent and only about £7!

Hourglass veil mineral primer. I really like it but have only just started using recently and it's the only primer I have ever used so don't know how it compares!

Smashbox do really good ones. I had used beauty flash but found it didn't fix the foundation that well so switched to Clarins primer but prefer Smashbox

I wasn't so keen on the no.7 one either...not as good as mac.

Not the No7 airbrush away primer. I paid £20 and was ripped off.

Laura Mercier which is actually cheaper than the benefit pore professional which is also good.

I use Estée Lauder idealist pore minimiser serum. Makes my skin feel amazing.

Barbara Daly flawless primer is fantastic!

Cybbo Fri 25-Jan-13 07:41:47

Avon skin perfector(?) I think that's what it's called

Stops any shine, minimises huge pores and goes on like a whispy dream

QuinnFabray Fri 25-Jan-13 07:18:00

MAC, but only the spf 50 one. It's the only primer I've tried that stops my foundation from sliding off my face.

novelsituation Fri 25-Jan-13 06:25:01

Not keen on Benefit stuff generally, but do like the Pore Professional primer.

ohfunnyhoneyface Fri 25-Jan-13 05:41:33

Smash box!

I switched from mac and love it!

I use mac too. Tried another but went back to mac.

Laura mercier one is lovely but ££££

Cornsyilk99 Thu 24-Jan-13 23:07:17

I use beauty flash balm

Been using mac primer on and off but not sure I like it and wondered what other people use.
