    I love the too faced hangover Rx, and I use to use the benefit porefessional before the Rx! I haven’t tried a lot of these in your lists, most primers break my face out for some reason!

      Oh no! At least you know you have some go tos that won’t break you out. I really want to try the new Too Faced Hangover RX Spray.

      It’s the best pore filling primer out there and I’ve tried several!

    Lots of good ones here. I own the elf mineral Infused and I thought it resembled the maybelline baby skin primer, except it was better lol. The maybelline one felt a little oily on my skin whereas elf felt more hydrating. I’m still looking for a mattyifing primer to use during the summer. It’s really hard to find a good one that is cruelty free AND drugstore AND that is decent enough. Lol.
    I still wanna try the nyx pore filler and the angel veil. I’ll have to do lots of reseach on those 🙂

      I definitely think it’s better than Baby Skin! I’m dying to try the Angel Veil, but it’s almost $16 for drugstore. So crazy to me!
