Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Review

Hey Everyone,

Today When I am reviewing One of my favorite and first ever owned Foundation Primer, I can’t help recalling my first ever encounter with Primer Miracle.

Years back in 2007 I went to Canada to attend  Friends Wedding. I was treated special, So For my Evening Make Up I was scheduled an appointment with MAC Makeup artist in my Hotel Room.

My MAC MakeUp Artist  introduced concept of Primers to me for very first time. I was taken aback once she made My Face Makeup base ready.

So Today in this post

I am going to share my experience with Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Review touted to be one of the best Primers in Beauty world.

Smashbox has over ten different type of Primers to cater to different Skin concerns.I bought this one as a Part of Sephora Friends and Family Sale in November 2013.

AS CLAIMED BY BRAND

Worn alone or underback  foundation, our best-selling, oil-free primer helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores for flawless skin with a velvety-smooth finish.

THE ORIGINAL BLUR

The first step to any great close-up is great skin – skin that’s free of fine lines and pores. That’s one of the reasons why primer was the first product created at Smashbox Studios. We developed a formula that diffuses the light hitting skin to blur out imperfections for an even, soft-focus look. It also makes makeup look better and last longer. Think of our primer as the original blur – and the best way to start your makeup every day.
 
Apply a dime-size amount of Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer to clean or moisturized skin, using fingertips, for complexion perfection.

3.FINISH: I started using Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer to create the perfect canvass for my Foundation to spread. What I have seen with Smashbox Primer is that Not only it fills Pores but also Fills in Fine lines on my face(especially in my Under Eye Region).
Smashbox Photo Finish Primer gives Porcelain Touch to my face.
I actually spotted the difference in Ease of application with Heavy Foundations like Estee Lauder Double wear. Foundation just glides on my skin like a dream.It doesn’t let the foundation to seep in the skin but rather stay on surface of skin.
It definitely increases the longevity of my Foundation.
My skin is Normal to Dry. This neither accentuates the dryness on my face nor it makes it look oily.

If I wear my foundation without primer I see layer of Oil in my T zone after few hours but When I use Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer as a Base My face looks Oil free/Matte almost throughout.
I apply it on my clean moisturised skin before putting on my Foundation and Concealer. I see the huge difference when I used it before putting concealer in my Undereye Area. My concealer just glides, stays longer and doesn’t crease!!
It has never broken out on my skin ever.But sometimes silicones may react notoriously on Acne Prone skin and may cause break outs. If you had previous episodes of Silicone stimulated Break-outs then skip using this primer or try to go for a sample first.
4.PRICE: I bought it in Gift set by Sephora at Friends and Family sale.
                                          You can get 15ml for 15$/30 ml for 36$.
In India You can buy it at  AMAZON Here!!
 VANILLA RATINGS 10/10
Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer  is one of the Best Primer I ever came accross with.
It does what it claims. It actually creates the perfect smooth surface for your foundation to smooth on and increases the duration of Foundation stay on face.
Even though it is pricey a small amount of it goes long way. I use almost a Coin size(25p) of this Primer for my entire face.
Availability However is Big issue in India.

♥I highly recommend Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer as one of the Best Primers that is used as a Base to Foundation to create that Perfect Porcelain Face.It gives a smooth, oil-free and silky finish to foundation that looks flawless. I also noticed it helps decrease the appearance of imperfections(pores and fine lines) on the face instantly, which gives my Make-Up smoother look. It will always be apart of my Make Up Essentials!!
