Hi Aude,

Argh ! I had to watch the video to check - I had to fast forward through it, personally, I found it unwatchable. I don’t think it was anything mentioned there . I think it was a few years before that . Kicking myself that it took buying one of the products and hating it for me to catch on to the whole ‘beauty expert’ shill .

On primers I think I remember Mary Greenwell saying she doesn’t like them . Or it could have been Lisa Eldridge. Both of those make up artists ( and maybe that is the difference , they are proper make up artists ) focus on techniques rather than product. Use what you’ve got , don’t buy more .

I remember once being influenced ( very unlike me ) to buy some kind of primer - it was a luxury brand,YSL or Dior. It had gold flecks in it I think. It’s not the current YSL primer - this was years ago. The column hailed it as some universally flattering miracle. I couldn’t believe how crap it was. I looked like the crypt keeper when I put it on.I have good skin and it aged me about 10 years.
I BOUGHT THIS! It was YSL, yes, and full of silicone. I got terrible spots immediately.

@Aude did you buy the pink balm that was supposed to make your skin look great, but all it did was immediately remove any makeup you had on underneath? Yeah, me too 🙄🔫.

Was it a recommendation in this odd video that influenced you? I bought a different, but also disappointing, YSL product on the basis of the hyping here.

I think this video was the first time I began to doubt SH. Not so much the hyping as her appearance. Her forehead seemed so smooth and unmoving and there was something odd about her mouth. It looked to me like the result of cosmetic procedures but, given her commitment to honesty, I didn't believe that she'd have had a cosmetic procedure without being open about it. I sort of convinced myself that it was just the odd filming that was making her look different.

Touche E-CLATTT :LOL: 🤣 ⚰

Yes! It was supposed to be like a nice powder compact, but with a blurring balm instead of powder, that you could carry around for touch-ups - even patting some on in public the way you might powder your nose.

Problem was, as you say, that the applicator sponge picked up the make-up underneath and looked grubby after a single use. And being an unusual rectangular shape you couldn't replace the sponge (nor could you wash it, as I found out). A serious design flaw that surely would have been obvious to anyone testing/reviewing the product.

Katie Jane Hughes doesn’t use primer and doesn’t recommend it (I mean she always says if you like it keep it up).

Yes the Superdrug Vit E range is so nice, it’s the only thing I’ve ever bought on her rec. I’ve take Hirons’ advice more over the years but I can’t be arsed with her anymore either.

When I first started reading suspicions about her Botox I was SO disbelieving. I thought many things were valid - the cool girl superiority, slightly shifting origin story, her response to The Pool’s demise etc etc but no, the fillers were not on my radar for something she’d be being coy about and therefore shifty about. Well.

Do you think the Pool was supposed to be her future income? So she could do a little side shilling for the free stuff but also rake cash in from the website? Didn’t she get the loaf to invest as well, or was that her website?

And does anyone really need a primer? Seems like just another unnecessary step
I don't use foundation so I like to use a primer under a tinted serum or BB cream if I want a more made up look. I usually use Lancome or Clarins... the Lancome makes a huge difference, basically transforms my BB Cream into a proper full face of foundation. I find the Clarins doesn't do too much appearance wise but does seem to make my tinted serum stay on a lot longer during the day.

So that was that for me.
I just buy what appeals to me on brand’s own websites plus the old favourites I’ve used for years. You know yourself better than any influencer does. I find influencers have the opposite effect on me , the more they praise the more I make a point to avoid it. Surely they must be creating an ‘anti influencer’ effect half the time now. People are wising up.
I bought this too. Dior Glow primer. I remember it was really shimmery and made me look awful. Had to go on a waiting list as it was sold out after Sali raved about it.
