Today's user review comes from WhiplashGirlchild, who graciously shared her thoughts on Spackle by Laura Geller ($21.50) last week in the Beauty Product Junkies group. (Write your own reviews in the group, and I might post yours on BellaSugar too!) Here's what Whiplash had to say:
About a year ago, maybe more, I purchased Laura Geller Spackle makeup primer from QVC. It came in a jar like the one on the left, but if you buy it from Sephora, it comes in a pump like this:
I used Spackle pretty religiously until I got my Bare Escentuals starter kit, and then I started using the BE BareVitamins Skin Rev-er Upper ($21) instead. So this morning, I decided to experiment. I put on my moisturizer as usual, and then put the Spackle on one side of my face and the Rev-er Upper on the other side. For the verdict,
Both make my skin feel soft, but the Spackle made my pores look just a little bit smaller, although you can't really tell with the naked eye. But when I looked with my magnifying mirror, I could tell that my skin looked slightly better with the Laura Geller Spackle. Plus, it feels light; it's oil-free, so it's not greasy; and it dries quickly.
I recommend the Spackle, but if you find something cheaper that you're happy with, I'd stick with it. Like I said, there's a difference, but it's not that dramatic.
