I used smashbox make-up primer & like that it's clear & allows make-up to glide on easily. Haven't really noticed if the primer makes make-up stay on any longer though. Is there really a need to use eye & lip primers as well or can the same product be used everywhere?

Hi
I think you can use a primer anywhere except for the ones that have SPF - they could really irritate if they got in the eyes.
Smashbox is a good primer from the reviews I've read!

I've been using the Monistat AntiChafing gel for about 5 months now... ever since I saw it on Youtube. I've never had a breakout from this. It keeps makeup on my face. It's cheap. It doesn't smell, it doesn't have a colour and you can use it for chafing too... if you want.

It's definately in my makeup stash. In fact, I saw some on sale at Shoppers Drugmart for $4ea so I bought all that they had on the shelf. I have 8 of them. They last forever. I'm still using my first tube.

Also Aveeno Baby Daily Moisture lotion works great as a primer.....Monistat can be a touch on the dry side, but if you have oily skin that could be a plus, both have dimethicone 1.2%

Monistat or Clinque's Pore Minimizer Instant Perfector. Both achieve great results for me. Monistat is great in humid weather..keeps skin looking matte. I use Clinique over my makeup or tinted moisturizer for a finished look...it makes my pores disappear!

Clinique Pore Minimizer made me break out something terrible.
