SMASHBOX Photo Finish and Foundation Primer

In interior designing, it is best to apply a primer first before painting a wall, to smoothen out the surface of the wall and to make the paint stick longer.

 The same goes to foundation primers, it is like a moisturizer that helps make the face smooth like a clean canvass and a barrier between face and foundation that helps ease the foundation application. Here's my two cents on my try on two of Smashbox' foundation primer.

  • SMASHBOX Photo Finish Foundation Primer UVA/UVB SPF15 with Dermaxyl Complex

It’s a vitamin packed primer with added sun protection plus, it has anti-ageing skin treatment that promises to reduce appearance of wrinkles and lines over time.

The first thing I notice about this primer is its creamy orangey almost transparent color. Its viscous enough but not heavy on skin. It glides and it doesn't dry fast so no hassle! :) No residue or greasy feeling, just soft smooth skin!

  • ·        SMASHBOX Photo Finish Light Foundation Primer

This primer is perfectly made for oily, acne-prone and sensitive skin! Its 60% water based, oil absorbent and light diffusing, hence it provides a smooth matte finish all day, minimizes skin imperfections! It also has Vitamin C and peptides that even out skin tone and promote collagen production over time.

These primers are easy to apply! All you have to do is pump or squeeze a pea size on fingertips and smooth an even layer directly on clean or moisturize skin! :)

What's your recent/favorite primer? ;P
