Primer Potion File II

I am thinking to buy a primer potion, normally i use Laura Mercier's powder primer, i have got the all 3 sets,

1- Laura Mercier Finishing Powder ( i am running out of it but thank god i purchased one more )
but is a bit messy to use powders, you just waste product, it just drops down to floors and clothes etc.
but there is an extra it is a really a good product, i wish i am not this messy and i remmber where i put my powder and take the picture and share it with you, but if you are one of my readers from the begining you'd now that if i do not have the product i won't say i am using. This is bigger than the other two products and more long lasting, this is a setting powder i use this over my make up

2- Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder
 this is smaller than you imagine it could finish faster than you imagine ( i finished this in 3 mnths time) this has 2 shade options shade 1 and shade 2. shade is a bit more yellow, i think it is more suitable for asian and Indian's. No offence it is my personal opinion it could work on me too, but i purchased shade 1 and perfectly fits although i am a Mediterranean and i am olive skinned. Opps before i forget it is a bit pigmented product, it is sparkling powder type so you might be sparkling like Las Vegas Lights :)
i use this after i moisten my skin.

3- Laura Mercier Mineral Finishing Powder
it is also in a small jar and i use it after i put my foundation and concelaer, before i start to do my eyes, and cheeks.
it could finish quickly ....

As on my eyes I use

Too Faced Shadow Insurance

I used only few times , i can not say much about this product, i will tell you more when i see a difference on my eye make up..

MAC Prep + Prime Eye

What i can say about this product is it is pretty long lasting, i am using this product for over a year...
and it is better than the other primers i use...
it is on a small square jar and you think it wont be long lasting cos it doesnt look much on the jar, but it has and u can use it until you finish it..  no product will be left over inside the jar...

2- Urban Decay Pore Perfecting Complexion Primer Potion
