Drugstore Primers have come a long way in the last few years, and CoverGirl Outlast All Day Primer, Clear, is now one of the best on the market.
The All Day Primer comes out of the tube white, and is clear once I applied it to my skin. The texture of this primer is wonderful. It was very silky and creamy, with lots of slip that allowed me to be able to massage it into my skin before my makeup application. It hydrated my skin and created an instant, even smooth surface, with just a touch of immediate "tackiness", which allowed my foundation/bb cream to adhere and stay in place all day.

I found that it was best to apply the CoverGirl Outlast All Day Primer and then wait 3-5 minutes to let it set and then use that time to set up my coffer/breakfast etc in the morning. After a few minutes, the initial tackiness dried down to a completely smooth surface.
I loved how it extended my makeup with a morning application. And not only my foundation/BB Cream, but also my blush stayed vibrant for 10+ hours with no fading, streaking or drying out.
If you're looking for an advanced primer that also provides additional moisture - and doesn't break the bank, CoverGirl Outlast All Day Primer is the one to pick up. -RLB
