Primer Review 

Everyone by now knows I sell Avon. When I started this blog, I promised to be honest about products. If I like it, I’ll tell you. And if I don’t like it, I’ll tell you that, too…even if it’s an Avon product. This is one of those times. 

I have the Avon MagiX Face Protector. The original price is $11. Well…er…how do I say this? I’m not completely unsatified with it. It does what it’s supposed to do. It smooths my skin in preparation for my foundation. If it’s on sale, I’ll likely buy it again.

Some people absolutely love it. It has received great reviews from customers on the Avon website. But let me be candid – it is just not my fav. Some people claim it’s the best thing in the world and that their skin looks awesome with the Avon primer alone. That is not the case for me. It feels good, but it makes my skin look chaulky. Perhaps it’s just not the best product for dark skin. Oh well…nothing personal…it happens. 

In my opinion, the best primer I’ve used surprisingly has been Elf’s Hydrating Face Primer – something I can grab easily from my local drug store.

It is fantabulous (yes, I made up a word) and it costs only $6. It smooths so nicely and goes on clear, making such a nice canvas for foundation. In fact, it made my skin look and feel flawless after my foundation was applied. 

I feel better now that I got that off my chest. 


Some people may call me crazy for not speaking more favorably about a product I sell or they may believe that I’m adversely affecting my business. I say not. My opinion is that I have a responsibility to be honest. To those who love Avon primer, great! I am happy to sell it to you. To others, I just want to give my opinion so that you can make a decision of your own. 

How can you trust me when I speak highly about a product if I can’t be honest about what I don’t like? You have my word. I will always be honest with you.
