Review: Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Foundation Primer

I was so excited to review the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer in my Birchbox. I have been on a primer kick recently and I just want to try all of them, the problem is I can’t find all of them in a sample size. I have been wanting to try all of the Smashbox primers so I’m glad I got to try out the most basic one.

The primer glides on my skin very easily and it wears comfortably. I didn’t experience any irritation of break outs. I didn’t notice any blurring of my pores or erasing of my fine lines, but I don’t think that this product claims to do those things anyway. What it did do was make my make up last all day long with the exception of my nose, but with me blowing my nose so much recently (damn allergies) there isn’t much would stay put on my poor nose.

One thing I did notice with this primer is that I was a bit more luminous or shiny that usual. If I set with powder in the morning I looked luminous throughout the day and if I didn’t I just looked quite shiny. This isn’t the biggest issue since I don’t mind a glow in spring and summer and it take two seconds to apply powder, but I probably wouldn’t repurchase this version of the primer. I am definitely interested in trying different versions of it. I really wish Smashbox had a value set of all the primers in sample or deluxe sample size. I would so buy that in a heartbeat.
