Review: Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer – Light

Everyone raves about foundation primers but I’ve never really loved them before, every time I’ve tried them I don’t really notice a difference. However, recently one of my friends visited me and her skin looked amazing, I couldn’t believe that her makeup had been on for 8+ hours, when she told me about the Smashbox Primer I just had to give it a try.
I purchased the Smashbox Photo Finish Light Primer in the smaller 12ml size as I did not want to spend a lot of money on the larger tube as at the time I wasn’t sure if I would like it or not. The smaller tube was £12 which is quite a good price compared to other primers I have seen. The primer is white and has had a light scent, what I loved is that it was neither sticky or oily. I applied this onto my face before moisturising and could notice a difference straight away, my skin appeared smoother! When I applied my foundation I found that it applied much more smoothly and had a more flawless finish. As for it’s staying power, it lasts all day! I absolutely love this product and don’t know what I ever did without it!
What’s your favourite primer?

    Hiya! Thanks for lovely comment on my blog :) I think my dog is pretty cute too, hihi^^

    I have this primer too, I haven't used it for very long and I don't know yet if I notice a remarkable difference or not. But I really like Smashbox products, so I'll probably end up loving it ;p xx
