So after a disappointing run with my Algenist anti aging primer, I turned to a backup I had been holding on to for a bit, elf''s mineral primer in "radiant glow".
I really was not expecting much, but wow I am so happy with the results!
it swatches pretty glittery so that had me a little worried
Its basically like a wash of shimmer with chunks of small glitter.
I used a full coverage foundation though (Tarte Amazonian clay ) and the big glitter is basically invisible with it. all that left is a really beautiful glow!
My cheeks did get a little help from Benefits "girl meets pearl", but elfs primer is a cheapie hit for sure!
