In my quest for a good primer, some wonderful people recommended MaryKay foundation primer to me. I already had the 'Blackup' primer in mind, but when i compared the prices (N8,500 vs N2,500), i decided to get the MaryKay one first and test it.
Each time i asked my trusted supplier, she said she didn't have it yet....so one day, i went into Oxpharm to buy huggies for my Mish-mish, i asked them in the beauty section and they said they had the primer, but alas! It wasn't on my budget for that day. The store attendant tried to persuade me to buy it, and i almost gave in but i had to 'be a man' and stand my ground that i wouldn't exceed my spending budget for that day. #EeeesaBigProblem
The following day, i marched into Oxpharm and asked for my primer and she gleefuly handed it over to me. I went home happily and couldn't wait to try it. When i got home, it occured to me to read online reviews of the primer and the reviews i read scared the wits out of me.....one oyibo lady called it a disaster! I was shocked.
The next day, i tried it on.....
And i loved eeeeeet! *Mighty Grin*
First, lets talk about the packaging.....It comes in a pink small tube with a black screw-on cover. I like the pointed nozzle which would help control the way the product is squeezed out.
I also like the fact that it's in a gel-like form and it blends easily without leaving any white patches.
But it does have a smell.......smells like a medicated ointment.....not a problem to me at all.
The manufacturers say..........
