Palladio Herbal Primer

This is the only primer I've ever used that doesn't break me out or feel heavy.

I'm not kidding you.  It's amazing! And before I go into further details, I want to make something clear.  I have said in the past that I don't care for primers because all they do is clog your pores.  However, during the circumstances in which I needed to wear cosmetics that'd keep my makeup from melting off; I bought this primer thinking that for $12 it was worth a shot.  

I had heard reviews about it before and they all had good things to say.  Some of theses reviews even stated that it paralleled with the high-brand primer, Smashbox.   The only difference was the price (Smashbox being priced at $40 a pop).

Guys, this is the best primer for the best price.  It's so smooth, it goes on like butter, and if feels like it's not even there! I tried this for a full week and I haven't broken out yet.  ;) Wooo!

Application:  Take a little less than a pee-sized amount and divide that around the face, blend

Skin type: All

Tips: It may not feel like a lot, but trust me, it'll keep. Don't keep applying it because you can't feel it on your skin!


Definitely worth the money, folks! :D

Good luck!

Palladio Makeup Trial

The Mission: The target, Palladio makeup line, is to be worn all week in an effort to find out whether it's a good "bang-for-my-buck".

The tools: (1) Palladio Herbal Primer (2) Palladio Herbal Powder-Finish Foundation (3) RPC: Rice Powder

Original Contact: Youtube. I came across the brand last year as I was deciding whether or not I needed a setting powder.

History of Target: As stated on their official website,, under the page "About Us":
"Palladio Beauty Group is a company based in Hollywood, Florida formed by a group of experts in the cosmetics and beauty industry on November 1st 1999.
The company was formed with the principal idea of providing high quality products at affordable prices.  
PBG is the manufacturer of Palladio “Herbal & Vitamin Enriched Cosmetics”.
Palladio is a full line of herbal and vitamin enriched cosmetics.  Enriched with essential herbs and vitamins such as; Green Tea, Chamomile, Ginseng, Ginkgo Biloba, Aloe Vera and Anti-Oxidant Vitamins A, C, D & E to improve the skins elasticity and combat aging."
Additional Information: After intense research, there has been no sighting of ONE bad review.  Not a single one.  All consumers seems to be overall very content with this line of cosmetics.  This, at the time, seemed highly suspicious since the prices for a seemingly a high quality brand is quite low.  Reviews have even compared said brand to designer brands like MAC, Smashbox, and Makeup Forever. 
Present Observations: The Foundation had immediate impressions.  It has a thick consistency and when applied it smells of powder--this last fact is an understandable and highly logical idea since the product is called "Powder-Finish".  Primer is incredibility helpful and works quite well.  The powder give a nice finish and keeps oil at bay longer than other powders previously owned. 
More to report at a later date.
