Today I will be talking about a subject that is both sensitive and extremely important to me.  I’ve only shared this part of my life with close friends and family.  My husband and I have been trying to conceive for the last six months.  Little did I know how much of a roller coaster this time would be.  I want to share my story with you in the hopes that you might have empathy or advice for us.    Continue reading

Review: Studio Gear Prime Objective Perfecting Face Primer

best makeup primer

Makeup has been a passion of mine since I was 15.  I would experiment when mom wasn’t home.  Over the years, most of what I’ve learned is self-taught but I rely on a lot of YouTube gurus.  They first introduced me to using primer.  In my early 20s I wasn’t much of a foundation wearer, but in the 30s I feel it’s a must. It evens out my skin tone and gives me a flawless canvas to work with. I don’t always use primer as a base but these days with blog shoots and events, with the hot lights and varying outdoor weather, it’s an essential. Today I’ll be reviewing a primer I’ve started using by Studio Gear.

A little about the product

PRIME OBJECTIVE is a silicone based face primer that acts to “re-touch”, or visually diminish, imperfections in the surface texture of the skin. PRIME OBJECTIVE contains a sustained release liposome system with retinol that can help support cell turnover and reduce the appearance if fine lines and wrinkles, as well as a milk protein complex that can help to balance and protect the skin against environmental stresses. The “skin perfecting” effect of this state-of-the-art formula is further enhanced with optical diffusers.

What does Stylista Fitness Think?

I had high hopes for this product and it certainly met my expectations.  It stood the test of time from am application to pm.  My makeup did not budge and the oily glow I get by the end of the day was non-existent.  My foundation stayed matte for 14 hours!  The product has the same silicon-like consistency that most primers have.  It sinks into your fine lines like magic.  It gives my face a perfect canvas for foundation.  It’s also fragrance free, which is what I prefer for most of my makeup products.  Overall, I give this primer a 9 out of 10.  You can buy this product at their website and receive 10% off using the code BB.
