One of the biggest developments in makeup over the last few years is the popularity of primer. Think of primers as a base coat for "painting" your skin: They help makeup go on smoothly and last longer.
On that note, I've just picked up Laura Geller Spackle Trio ($30). It contains three primers — one each for face, lips, and eyes — in one container. Having everything packaged together makes a lot of sense, especially for people who travel frequently. Unfortunately, not every part of this product is worth packing.
Earlier this year, Whiplashgirlchild reviewed Spackle for the face. Her review praises the product for reducing the appearance of pores and helping makeup glide on evenly. I agree; it creates a very smooth canvas on which to put foundation. But I also agree with her other opinion: It's a good product, but there are less-expensive options that work nearly as well.
