We credit this makeup artist favorite for proving to us that a primer can be long-lasting and effective without feeling heavy. The light, oil-free formula smoothes skin so that foundation goes on evenly and stays fresh all day. And now it’s even better than ever: It’s newly re-launched with a snazzy new squeeze tube that make it easy to dispense as little or as much as you need.
I love smashbox products. This is a perfect primer to wear before you apply foundation. It feels so good and it smells good, too.5
After using a few different primers I was told I HAD to try this one for oily to combination skin. Granted I did use it about 5 years ago when I first started applying makeup and did not really like it. But I do know your skin changes and products get reformulated so when I also saw people suddenly raving about it once more on blogs and YouTube ... I bought it again.
I don't mind the silicone texture.. My foundation and concealer applied perfectly. However, afterr a week I realized I look beautiful in the morning but by the end of a busy college day my skin is completely unrefined... Bumpy big pores not clarified whatsoever. My skin actually looked more refined before my makeup application!!!!!
Since it has only been a week I am going to continue a few more days and then ask a few of my makeup artist friends their opinion. So many factors go into how your skin reacts with a product... So I am keeping that in mind but as of right now there is no immediate LOVE for this product :(
I have used DOZENS of face primers from smashbox and other various brands, and this one is still one of my favorites. It's very smooth and light, and keeps my skin fresh all day.5
I generally didn't use a primer prior to receiving a sample of this in my birchbox. What a difference it makes! Skin looks so much smoother, softer and prevents make up from caking in your creases (even the tiniest creases as I have youthful skin). The days I forget to put in on under my make up I notice a huge difference in my finished makeup. This is definitely a winner.5
I have large pores and this product works well under makeup to give a smooth look to your makeup finish. I find it works best if you wait a few minutes after applying before you put on your foundation4
I have used quite a few foundation primers, but this one tops them all. It's lightweight and helps eliminate all the shine my necessary moisturizer induces. It feels like rubbing velvet on your face, and it holds your makeup in place all day. I squeezed every last drop out of my sample size.5
I tend to get oily skin and this primer ensures that my makeup stays fresh and matte throughout the day--I can go up to 12 hours without needing any touch-ups!
Since receiving this product and trying it out, I have purchased this primer more than once for my collection. Although, I do have other primers, this is the one I am consistently reaching for and love the most!
Awesome primer for getting a super smooth foundation finish. It doesn't take much. I don't use it daily but it help on those days where it feels like your skin looks dull and your make up just isn't going on right.4
This primer is amazing. Lightweight and keeps my makeup on all day. Works great. I usually purchase this on a regular basis (the full size) So I was happy to get the sample size to take when I travel. Also, the sample size was great!5
I did not like this primer. I found it to be too greasy for my skin. I gave it to a friend who loved it. Did have a good aroma.3
