Review: Smashbox Photo Finish Primer

When starting up a blog I knew this product was one I definitely wanted to review. It is such a beautiful primer and a real treat to use. Smashbox claims this product "Creates a perfect canvas for foundation application" and "helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores for flawless skin with a velvety-smooth finish." And they aren't lying. 

I use this after washing my face and moisturising with Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions Clearing Moisturiser, which I like to use as it is a light, oil free moisturiser, so I don't feel like I'm piling products onto my skin. Smashbox recommends using a pea sized amount, however I feel slightly more is needed for a thin layer across the whole face. Applying this feels like you are having a bit of pamper time, even on a stressful early morning e.g. before college for me, as it is so velvety and spreads so easily using your finger tips. It then makes applying foundation so effortless as it glides onto the skin, and I find it also helps to stop foundation stick to areas of dry or problemed skin.


One thing I can't comment on, being 17, is whether it does reduce the appearance of fine lines, and I am also a bit skeptical of how much any primer reduces the appearance of pores. 


This can be bought at Boots or Sephora for at £25.00/$36.00, which is a bit over my budget, so I only use it on long days out or nights out to help makeup last then use a high-street primer on other days. Despite this, I would definitely recommend you buying this on your next payday or asking for it on your birthday!
