I have been a fan of Black Radiance for quite some time now (pretty sure I own almost all of there products too lol.) So when it comes to primers sticking with Black Radiance was a no brainer. Usually my skin is very dry, and I mean Sahara Desert dry. Lately my skin has been in the combination range. Dry around my under eye and cheeks but oily everywhere else. This has never happened before, but my mom says its because I’m almost 30 *lol*
The True Complexion HD Primer and the True Complexion Refining Skin primer together are magic for my skin. (Go check out my latest makeup post on IG to see what I’m talking about.) I first use the HD primer in my t-zone area to get rid of any extra shine. Then I go in with the Refining Skin Primer for my under eye area as well as around my nose where my pores tend to be larger.
Also I use the refining skin primer around my mustache area. I’ll explain, so I sweat ALOT around my mustache, however once I use the refining skin primer with a bit of translucent powder ya girl don’t be sweatin’ no more! If any of you ladies know about the mustache sweat let me know in the comments.
Overall, my makeup applies smoothly and my skin is matte. For the price (both under $7) they work phenomenal, what more could a girl ask for?
