I am addicted to Smashbox Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer (retailing for around $38). The green pigment of the primer reduces the redness of my rosy cheeks and other problem areas.
The only issue with the Smashbox primer is the price, so I was browsing Wal-Mart, which is very rare, and came across a Hard Candy Sheer Envy Skin Illuminating Primer for only $5. I figured it wouldn’t hurt to give it a try. This primer is fantastic!
Placed between your moisturizer and foundation, the primer helps your foundation go on flawlessly and stay in place all day long.
If you don’t use a primer, this is a great one to try. It is cheap and does the job right. If you use a primer and spend more than $5, this is a good alternative on a budget.
Available at Wal-Mart for around $5.
