I am very big on foundation primers and I must say that DermaPro Silk Primer Foundation Primer is now my new favorite primer.

DermaPro Silk Primer Foundation Primer is a clear, light, liquid primer unlike any other I have tried. The first day I used this primer, I got complimented at lunch by my regular lunch-buddy. It was a rainy day and I know my hair had nothing to do with it, so I attribute that compliment to the one thing that changed in my routine-- this primer. My foundation had a great base, shine was minimized, and my make-up was optimized.
In comparison to my previous favorite primer, Givenchy's Mister Mat primer, DermaPro Silk Primer has a more liquid-like consistency and feels lighter and actually quite refreshing. MAC's foundation primer felt a little heavy and, although I don't know for sure, it may have caused a pimple or two :(. (Don't get me wrong, though-- MAC is an awesome brand with the best lipsticks and eyeliner!) After using DermaPro Silk Primer several days in a row, I noticed no negative effect so I am not concerned about break-outs. Also, the light consistency makes me not worry about clogged pores. NARS primer is good, but sticky and whitening, which is kind of annoying when I am in a hurry because I have to wait for it to relax on my skin. I did not have this problem with DermaPro Silk.
Clearly, DermaPro Silk Primer Foundation Primer is the hands-down winner. I am very happy to have been introduced to this product and I look forward to using it again and again, and getting more compliments! I definitely recommend this product to everyone!
