Hard Candy Sheer Envy Primer Reviews

by - Monday, March 28, 2011

I got my hands on all three of the Hard Candy Sheer Envy Primers. 
 The Ultra Light Formula is 45g where as the other two are 36g. They all cost $7.98 and can be found at your local Wal-Mart (with luck).

Ultra Light Formula
So First off I will talk about the regular primer a.k.a the Ultra Light Formula. This seems exactly like my Avon Skin Magix Primer. They both are white, they both have a mattifing effect, they both have spf (although the HC doesn't say it in Canada). I like them both equally. Since I have dry skin I only tend to use this on certin areas of my skin where I get a bit shinny and when I want a really matte look. If you are looking for a good, inexpensive mattifing primer, check this one out.

Skin Illuminating Primer
Next up the Skin Illuminating Primer. This one is nice, slightly lavender in colour, it has a slight shimmer to it, but not a noticeable one. It is more gel like then the regular primer but still gives a bit of a mattifing effect. It feels almost as though mixed the regular formula with a more silicone based (ex. smashbox) primer. I would definitely buy this again. I don't know how much brightening it does, but it is a good primer for the money.

Skin Perfecting Primer
Lastly the Skin Perfecting Primer. This one has almost the same texture as the Illuminating version, but even more gel like (or more silicone feeling). It has a slightly pink tone to it, but no shimmer to it. I find this one really does brighten up my skin a bit. It is most likely the one I like the most out of the three.

These are great primers for the price, there is most likely one that will suit your needs. I personally like the Skin Perfecting one the best.
