This was another thing I was excited to see in my Sephora Play! Box. I have used the regular Smashbox Photo Finish Primer and I loved it. It’s actually my favorite one to use.
I have pretty large pores around my t-zone area, so I was more than ready to put it to the test.
It was different from the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer that I’m used to using. It was a tan color and thicker than what I’m used to. It worked great though. I felt like my foundation came out more airbrushed looking than ever before.
It’s important that you give this primer, or really any primer, about a minute before you put on any face makeup. This way it really sets into the skin. To me, this primer dried kinda powdery, not that you should see any powder, but that’s just what it felt like.
This formula is great for combination to oily skin since it controls shine. It’s sweat and resistant. It helps makeup last up to eight hours! Great for when your going from work to a night out.
This primer doesn’t come cheap: their travel size, which is 15 mL is $16 and their full size, 30mL is $39. You’re only suppose to use a dime size amount, so each one should last you for a while.
