Review Maybelline Facestudio Master Prime & Blur

I’ve tried using primer several years ago for the first time and bought the Smashbox Iconic Photo Finish Foundation Primer for a whopping $36. It did smooth out my skin, but I didn’t really notice a difference with how long my makeup lasted. Since it didn’t really live up to it’s claims, I put it in the back of my makeup drawer and just forgot about it. Time to time I’d pull it out and try again, but clearly was never really satisfied with the results.

Flash forward to my everyday face post last week, I had mentioned that my blush does not stay put no matter what I do. Asa from Lace and Pearls Blog suggested I try out a primer. While browsing around the makeup section at the drug store, I saw this Maybelline FaceStudio Master Prime and Blur. I picked up the Blur + Smooth version for a reasonable price of $6.99.

Fresh out of the tube, here is a photo of what it looks like.

I’ve only had it for a few days, but I did notice a difference in the length of time my makeup lasted. My blush stays put and my foundation doesn’t soak into my skin by the end of the day.

I highly recommend this product as a cheap alternative to Smashbox!

  1. Thanks for the shout out. I have the same Smashbox primer and didn’t really notice a difference in my makeup. I was disappointed because this product is suppose to be top notch. My story is similar to yours where I keep trying to use it. I may give the Maybelline one a go. Thanks for the review.
