    Primer Update! I just received the latest Sephora Fall 2009 catalogue.

    They have now introduced Tarte Lifted Natural Eye Primer with "firmatol", which helps to tighten the eyelid tissue.

    Korres has a silicone free 99% natural face primer which I have used...smells great, but after applying post mosturizer the mosturizer sloughes off..?

    Smashbox has also come out with a Photofinish lid primer, it has a plant based hyaluronic acid for hydration.

    Brite Prep Fx is an oil free SPF 50 primer that claims to brighten skin instantly.

    Make up For Ever High Definition Primer is formulated with special light reflectors, preps skin and masks flaws such as redness and blemishes.

    Urban Decay Complexion Primer Potion (Just have to say my their eyeshadow primer is THE best!! You can check out the reviews on Sephora, I really wanted something that works and this is it!) They have now come out with a primer for your face, and if its anything like the eyeshadow primer, it must be amazing! They also have come out with Lip Primer Potion! Two new additions to try.

    In addition a side note about a new sephora product: TEMPTU at home airbrushing system. It has an innovative AIR pod foundation for flawless coverage. Pricey buts looks great!

    I think primer is definitely something to consider given humid climate and hot weather. I find even without hot weather if I do not use the urban decay eyelid primer I notice a huge difference. It truly says put all day!!

      I bought some of this last weekend and LOVE it!! I had previously used MAC's lid primer, and I think Photofinish stays on longer and is more of a matte finish. I also use Smashbox's bronzing Photofinish primer all over my face and am borderling obsessed. These 2 items will definitely be in my makeup bag on our big day! Thanks for giving BDWers a heads up
      Love is not about finding the right person, but creating a right relationship. It's not about how much love you have in the beginning but how much love you build till the end.

        I am a fan of Smashbox's photofinish primer as well- but i want to try the bronzing one now!! Man I could litterally spend HOURS in Sephora.My FI jokes that next time we go within any distance of a Sephora he is putting blinders on me lol

          Has anyone tried the eyeshadow primer from TooFaced - I believe it's called Shadow Insurance? I'd be interested in buying it if it actually works as I tend to spend too much at Sephora as well....

            I have not tried the TooFaced primer. I checked out the reviews on sephora.com and out of 1071 reviews it recieved 5 stars from 853 of those that rated it! Thats awesome feedback, sounds like its really great stuff!

            This is what one review had to say:
            "I LOOOOOVE this stuff! It keeps your shadow & liner in place and looking great all day! I live in the south and got it b/c my makeup keeps melting off in this heat and this has totally done the trick! Worth every penny!"

            Now you have me wondering if this stuff is better than Urban Decay!!?? One thing that I am disappointed with is the amount you get in a tube. Before I know it I'm out of it, Id say I go through a tube a month!

              Sarafish81 - They are the same price...just went back to check $17. I also checked the review ratio for urban decay in almost 5500 reviews close to 4500 are 5 star rating and almost 700 are 4 star rating. Not too shabby either! :)
