I hope that you will include a video on your favorite makeup brushes too.

Mia Azlyn says:

Please review the Urban Decay De-slick Primer ❤️❤️❤️

Mirya Makeup says:

I got the Rimmel Stay Matte Primer, because of your reviews of it, today to compare to the NYX Pore Filler.

Stephanie Perez says:

Love this favorites series!

Fari Dil says:

It’s verry nice and you’re looking beautiful

Jenna O'Hara says:

love the separated categories xx

Chantal Van der Stelt says:

Do you still like the photofocus primer by smashbox from last year?

Дарья dd says:

You are wonderful person..but your make up looks very unnatural most of the time it is obvious you have tonnes of makeup. I think it is such a talent to use makeup like Desi Perkins…natural and very fresh

KikiCray says:

Please review which oily skin primers work best with certain foundations, thank you!!

Stella Luna says:

Love the way you describe everything, you are both informative and entertaining!

Shirley Lyons says:

you are awesome. I’ve just tuned in. I have a question about the IT FOUNDATION
(Bye Bye). So far double wear and IT are my favorite. can you compare

ShiHui Joey says:

Can you do one for eyeshadow/ eyes primer?

mehak khan says:

Best Skin care products video plzzzz

Bhagyshri Mehta says:

What do u think of the benefit pore professional for oily skin? Which one is better..benefit primer or loreal infallible primer? & what about the sephora smoothing primer for oily skin? Can u review that pls..

Emily A says:

What primer would you recommend for every day? I have the hourglass primer but i want to use it for special occasions! Oily skin girl here with texture

Johanna Jordan says:

I’m new to your channel and I absolutely LOVE this format! I plan on watching them all and can’t wait for next year!

Nooshin Allahyari says:

Nikkia please can you try origin foaming primer ? I have heard a lot about it but none of them were oily skin so I’m looking for your impression ❤️

Yarii Iglecias says:

I have the pro matte primer and I honestly don’t love it…like it works but it’s not the best lol

Kylee Sinclair says:

What lipstick you got on it’s beautiful

Jennifer Burgett says:

I went out & bought NYX Angel Veil bc you recommended it & I am not disappointed! I’m glad it’s in a smaller bottle bc I have a ton of primers sitting around that haven’t worked for me. Plus it’s affordable!! Thank you so much!

Sairah Summan says:

Really good that u breaking it up and u look so beautiful

Koy Koy says:

Skip to 1:02 for first primer

Erin Reilly says:

I absolutely love all the lipsticks you wear, wish you could do a video on just finding good lipsticks. The last ones I ever loved were made by Aveda.

The Glamour Cat says:

Choose which videos?? We want ALL the videos! Lol
Damn, I wish I had your skills tho- you’re stunning

A Fajardo says:

I’ve been trying so many different primers for my big pores & I rarely found one that really worked. Thanks for sharing. I will definitely try some of those primers.
Btw, I noticed you’re so fond of scents or fragrance in your face products. It is actually one ingredient, other than alcohol, that’s very bad for the skin, especially for sensitive and acne prone skin.

jasmine cheong says:

Love the information about the suitable skin type because sometimes youtubers give reviews only based on their own skin type which can be unhelpful for people who are not the same skin type as them…being a makeup artist who handles many skin types I really appreciate you taking the extra step to go into that detail!!

Anna Prince says:

Hi how about the lauramercier foundation primer radiance? Is it good for oily skin too?

Karen Agustin says:

I agree with you on the fenty primer! My holy grail, makes my makeup stay all day!

TheRealLyka says:

I really want to try the hourglass primer but everyone says the angel veil is a dupe so I went to buy it and hated it, my face felt so oily the entire day and I felt like I was wearing a layer of peanut butter on my face. So now I’m not sure if I should still invest in the hourglass.

Kim Kordik says:

Can you do a video on what you stock your professional kit with? Every now n then you will say something in particular is in your kit that you use on your clients. What are those products?!

Sasha Hennequin says:

Thank you so much for this video! I tried the Rimmel Primer & it has changed my life! I wore it all day under my foundation in the Aussie heat & my foundation (Maybelline Fit Me also recommended by you – thank you so much again) & it didn’t melt off! Next step is trying a setting powder 🙂

Stacy M says:

Love that you divide the videos

Meghan McCrery says:

What if I have large pores on my cheeks, but dry skin there and oily skin in my t-zone
