So on Pinterest the other day I saw this:
Frankly, I had no idea what a face primer was.
I did some research (and Yahoo Answers has all the right answers, right?) and found this:
A face primer is one of the best ways to insure your makeup stays on longer. They pamper the skin and create a protective barrier. Primers are excellent for people with combination to oily skin. Just apply after moisturizer and let it sink into the skin for a few minutes, and carry on with your regular foundation routine.
I was still baffled that a high end brand could have the same effect/ingredients as a low-end feminine product (well, I guess they are both feminine products…just used in different places).
So I did some research and found this blog:
So, what did you think? To save $30 could you use chafing gel on your face??? As someone with a background in marketing, I find it fascinating that I would be more likely to pay $36 vs. $6 because of the idea of putting a feminine cream on my face disturbs me even though it shouldn’t. Amazing what branding can do to your subconscious.
Would you be willing to try low-end cream to save some $$? (I cannot bring myself to type the brand name for some reason!! Obviously, I have modesty issues!!!)
