How are you all? Today’s review is on the well known primer in the beauty industry and that is the Photo Finish foundation primer by Smashbox.
I got this primer in the Smashbox Try Me Kit I blogged about earlier in the week and this was the product I was itching to try the most.
This foundation primer is a transparent gel and has a smooth silky consistency. The formulation is oil free so it doesn’t make your skin greasy and applies well on my combination skin. This primer doesn’t seem to have a smell and it is easy to quickly smooth it over your face to prep it for the application of your foundation. It really does glide over your skin and is a lovely product to work with.
I always apply primers with my finger tips because you use so little it isn’t really worth using a brush. Also, you’re not looking at buffing or blending it into your skin so it is fine to use your hands. I don’t have to use loads of this product to get the coverage I want but because it is something I will definitely use everyday and I will be covering my whole face it is a makeup product you use up quicker than others. Therefore, do I think this primer is worth the hype and the expensive price tag of £25.00?
My answer is YES! I find that this primer makes my skin smoother so my foundation applies better and it makes my makeup stay on for longer (I always use setting spray too, though). I would definitely buy this primer in the larger size and I would be happy to use it every day.
You can buy the Smashbox Photo Finish primer from Boots for £25.00 but if it order it from the Smashbox website (for the same price) you may get an extra free sample thrown in 🙂
