Makeup Monday: Back to an old favorite...

I sometimes get swayed by Sephora, by all the fancy primers and potions... I think I've tried every single silicone free primer they have there and none of them work quite right. I loved the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer SPF15 and then towards the end of the bottle, my skin "adjusted" and suddenly the shiny face fairy rolled up and said "oh hai." Then I tried the Korres Pomegranate Mattifying Primer and no suck luck... I even tried avoiding moisturizer (except around my eyes) and using the primer alone to see if the shine fairy would just chill. Nope. Stupid shine fairy. Makeup somehow doesn't like to wear well on my nose and since it's allergy season, I'm constantly blowing my nose and then having to re-powder my nose. That's a whole 'notha issue.

I've decided to go back to basics with my face primer - Clinique City Block SPF25. Yes, this is a physical mineral sunscreen that also acts as a face primer. It has a teeny tiny little bit of a tint which allows me to use less foundation and still have pretty good coverage overall. I've been using this product for years and I really just need to stick with it because it works the best with my skin out of everything I've ever tried.
Is there ever a product you've used multiple times and keep going back to after other makeup/skincare products have failed you!? Tell me in the comments!
