For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been trying the Smashbox ‘Photo Finish’ Foundation Primer.
I have to say I was a little biased on this one. I used this primer a couple years back and just couldn’t get into the hype of it. I constantly felt a layer of something on my face and wasn’t all that excited. Unfortunately, I can’t say that round 2 was that much more exciting. I still wasn’t thrilled with the feeling. I still kind of felt like I had somewhat of a mask on. My fellow beauty guru (and make-up artist) raves about it. It’s the only thing she uses both personally and professionally. She claims it works on all skin types and has never had any issues with it.
Since I wasn’t in love with Smashbox, I wanted to share with you a primer I am head over heels for: TooFaced ‘Primed and Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer’ and TooFaced ‘Primed and Poreless SPF 20 Bronze Tint Skin Smoothing Face Primer’. I got hooked on the original Primed and Poreless through Birchbox (you must check this site out…it’s quite fab!).
After I finished the sample size, I immediately went to Sephora and bought the full size. I love it! It gives my skin a super smooth finish and with a little dab of Retinol it helps fight wrinkles as well. After I finished my original, something new and bronze had come out. And since we all know about my bronze obsession, I had to try the bronze tint out.
Love. Love. Love. The bronze tint is super sheer, yet just enough for a healthy, warm glow. I love that this one has SPF 20, but still maintains the smooth, silky finish. I have a feeling this may be a keeper!
