Velvet Veil by Facetime (Primer)
If you love this, you'll love Velvet Veil by Facetime. I used smashbox forever, but read a review on facetime, and I am sold. My make-up does not even move at all. It looks the same as it did that morning.

Will do. Another blogger who I highly respect wrote a piece on it. She said she went to bed with the flu and didnt take off her make-up that evening (she knew it was a big no-no) but she felt dreadful. When she woke up the next morning, her make-up was flawless. I have to agree. I have tried it for three weeks straight, and although I love Smashbox, this works much better for me. I will start a thread when I get through with work in just a bit.

Thanks so much coachwife6 !

Image and text From Face Time's website:



Quote:
velvet veil
A silicone based primer that evens skin tone and creates a flawless face
Applying primer is the essential first step to a flawless face. Primer smoothes out the complexion and evens out the surface of the skin, so anything that is applied afterwards glides on evenly. It also protects the skin and acts as a barrier from elements in the environment that can harm the skin over time. Velvet Veil contains skin soothing Jojoba and it feels as plush as velvet! (Appropriate for any type or color of skin.)

^It's available for purchase at facetimecosmetics.com
Here's a link to a blog review of it: http://blogdorfgoodman.blogspot.com/...l-by-face.html

It sounds good...unfortunately I just stocked up on my smashbox primer and won't be in the market for one for quite sometime...

That's the blog I was referring to. I just wasn't sure if I could post a link to a blog here. Anything that BGoodman recommends is the best. She really does her research. I promise, my make-up does not move during the day. And, I run and I work at my computer and touch my face a lot. It looks the same at the end of the day now. I have a whole bottle of Smashbox and I didn't care. I had to have it and I have been so happy.

I can't recommend this enough. I used smashbox for several years and was happy with it but my make-up did not have much staying power. I felt as if smashbox just helped it go on more smoothly. Now, my make-up stays in place all day long. I had a full bottle of smashbox primer but i gave it away after I bought this.

^ just orederd it today so i'll see how it goes but you seem to love it and blogdorf HIGHLY recommends it... so it was hard to resist buying! i hope i get as good results as you guys!

I just bought a new thing of BE primer brand new havn't opened it yet from sephora (should've saved my money) so I guess i'm going to see if I can return it unopend or something and see if they'll take it back and give me my refund (if this stuff really works)

i'm so excited to try it!!!!

I know, I thought it was weird too to read about it being an all-over cream. But I only use it on my face. What do you think? Do you like it? Everything BlogdorfGoodman recommends is the best.

I've NEVER used anything so great!

I could really kiss u for making this thread!
It's lovely and it doesnt feel like my face has anything on it... i know that i used BE primer and it looked and felt greasy and this stuff feels kinda silky but i can't actaully feel me wearing it and it doesnt make my face look all greased up!

and I usually do my makeup about 7ish before work then i've got it on til 5 when i get home and it doesnt budge... i usually take it off when i get home though but it's pretty amazing stuff and it's really easy to fix ur mistakes when applying ur makeup.

Thanks so much for the reccomendation I'm loving it!
