NYC Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer Covers Up Nicely


We really like when inexpensive makeup gives you a real bang for your buck. And that's why we are taking a closer look today at NYC or New York Color Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer ($3.99, 1 oz., at drugstores).

A primer is like magic in a tube. It can smooth things out and prepare your face for the application of makeup. So, if you'd like those large pores to get lost and take a hike for the day, primer can hide those little imperfections and help you achieve a lovely air-brushed finish.

For under $4, you're getting a good deal. This primer has a pearly white appearance and light texture to it. It leaves behind a little shimmer or glow. We're not sure why it's been labeled Shade 684. Maybe NYC is planning to add other kinds of primer to their beauty collection?

We like playing around with cosmetics from New York Color. We think the makeup brand is under-rated.
