This $2 Sheet Mask Can Replace Your Makeup Primer

Updated 04/15/19

I have a confession to make: I hate primer. I know it may be an unpopular one, but it's an opinion I've kept ever since I first began wearing makeup. Maybe it's because I don't like wearing another layer of something on my face (foundation is enough to make my skin feel heavy and uncomfortable sometimes). Or maybe it's because the majority of primers I've tried have a slippery or sticky texture. Either way, I rarely wear primer, even though I don't want my makeup to smudge or crease.

According to Allure, there's now another option for people like me. There's a new priming mask that's available for a super-reasonable price (think $2 each). It's meant to be applied before you apply makeup to prep and prime the skin. It's basically a revolutionary product for people like me. Keep scrolling to see this new $2 priming mask that's available now.

The product is actually a sheet mask packaged individually in a pretty Millennial Pink pouch. Before you're ready to apply makeup, simply open the pouch, unfold the sheet mask, and apply it to your skin. Once you take it off after about five minutes of wear, you don't have to apply a traditional primer. You just get right to applying your makeup. Cool, right?

So how does it prep and prime the skin? Well, the mask is infused with a number of refining ingredients, including vitamin C to brighten, hyaluronic acid to hydrate, and vitamin B3 to smooth the skin's texture.

The brand promises that after wearing this sheet mask, makeup will apply more flawlessly and stay put longer, which is kind of the whole point of a primer, yes? Plus, it's only $2 for each mask, meaning that buying multiple won't break the bank. As for me, I will definitely be trying this out soon. How can I not? After all, it combines my two favorite things: sheet masks and not wearing primer.
