Battle of the Primers Drugstore

Hey guys,
I thought I would add a new item for my blog and this will be a battle for many different make up products.
This time round its going to be a battle of drugstore primers.
These primers  are all very similar in texture.
I have oily, acne prone skin so these primers needed to fight through the oil so that I do not end up with that much oil coming through.
I am a really oily girl I struggle with it especially on my nose and chin so over the passed few month I put these to the test with 2 foundations the estee Lauder double wear foundation and the urban decay naked skin. 

The three primers are Maybelline Baby skin (£7.99)
Nyx Angel Veil (£13)
Soap and Glory one heck of a blot (£10)

Angel veil

It really hides my pores.
It comes out white and is a beautiful primer.
This is good at fighting oil for about 4 hours.
I feel like its a bit expensive for a primer.
This worked better with the lighter foundation instead of the heavy duty one.

Baby Skin

The next it baby skin.
Baby skin is more of a silicone based primer.
This comes out clear.
It slightly hides my pores but for me its not instant on me.
This did not change depending on thickness of a foundation.
It hides my oil for maybe 2 hours.

One Heck Of A Blot

The final one is soap and glory one heck of a blot.
This primer you are supposed to be able to put on top of foundation and under it.
I love this one for oil control.
This also comes out white its less watery than angel veil.
It is about a mid range for drugstore primers.
This worked well with both foundations.
It made my naked skin foundation look flawless for longer.
It controls my oil for 5 hours before I need to blot.
