Yall I know thats a heavy accolade but this cream did it for me! I was personally SUPER hesitant to try a new face cream!

I ALWAYS apply it before I do my makeup as I like for my skin to be hydrated and have a dewy look and feel!

#2 Tie breaker for Best Primer

These primers were great for different reasons! The Fenty Primer was good for me in the summer and the first half of the year as it is very lightweight and went well with my makeup.  While the Laura Mercier is PERFECTION for a lumunious dewy like look! I always pair the primer after I have used my moisturizer the reason being  I have dry/sensitive skin. Since my skin is dry and sensitive and not necessarily oily I have to make sure it stays as nourished as possible or I break out from a lack of moisture(Which I actually did not know til this year).

#3 Favorite Foundation Brush( FLAT TOP

This brush option is actually one of the last purchases I made in December and I wish I purchased it much sooner! I personally have been using a Kabuki Brush from the Sonia K collection at Target since I was in college as it make my makeup look flawless! But this new brush does a wonderful job and the bristles feel so soft you wouldn't believe me I told you I purchased it from Target!!
