Unlike Hollywood royalty, we only have cameras pointed at us when were taking selfies to post on Instagram. Nonetheless, we still want to look good for our next impromptu photo op. This award-winning primer helps foundation go on smoothly and last all day. It also minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines for a flawless finish. No wonder it has so many followers. Pros rely on this best-selling formula to create an ideal canvas for foundation, but you can also wear it alone if you want to reduce the look of flaws without the coverage of full-on makeup. It contains antioxidant-rich ingredients like vitamins A and E, green tea, and grapeseed extract that help smooth and protect skin. Best of all, the lightweight, oil-free primer absorbs quickly, so you can move on to the rest of your routine without skipping a beat.
This is a very solid foundation primer. It smooths over your skin, making pores and little lines much less noticeable and giving your skin an awesomely soft feel. It doesn't clog pores, smell gross, or feel heavy. A little goes a long way, and ultimately you'll look much better with this on under your foundation.
That said, Monistat's Anti-Chafing Gel, which you can get at the drugstore for ~$6, is the same thing. Literally the same thing.
I started using this primer over 10 years ago and can't recall why I stopped. This works fantastically under my foundation (I weat Estée Lauder Double Wear and Double Wear Light). My makeup stays in place and keeps the oil in check. I tried porefessional but it made my makeup slide which is never a good thing.5
I have tried many different primers and found many of them sticky or greasy, but not this one. It goes on light and then when i apply my foundation my skin appears silky smooth. This truly is Primer Perfection!5
For sure this makes your skin soft. Not like well moisturized soft. More like covered in silk soft. I couldn't wear this product alone because it created/enhanced some skin bumps and such. So I covered it with BB cream and boy, was that a great improvement. In both products! If you wear layers of make up or foundation, I'd say this is almost a must-use product. My rosacea bloomed face tolerated the formula and because of the enhancement of the BB cream by this primer, I wasn't all red faced. Pretty interesting! Hence "weird stuff".4
Much lighter feel than most primers I've tried. I don't love the feel of makeup on my skin but when i do wear it, want it to look natural. This primer was perfect for that. Not heavy or irritating and lasted on my oily skin4
Leaves a nice matte look in your skin without or with makeup I absolutely loved it5
I have tried numerous primers and always come back to this one. Goes on great, not greasy at all and gives my face a good foundation to follow up with the Smashbox bb cream.5
Absolute must have. Feels like velvet when applying. Makes a smooth base for makeup and helps everything stay. Foundation and powders look so smooth and flawless.5
I received a sample of this in one of my boxes. The product was very small but I was able to get a lot of uses out of it. I really like the product but I wouldn't spend $36 on it.4
I have a few samples of this smashbox primer and although it works great at keeping makeup in place, but it is a bit on the oily side, and i have dry skin but i still dont like my face to be or look this oily and shiny even with setting powder over my makeup after applying this primer under my makeup everytime. I have used cheaper brands primers and other brand name primers that work way better and not as oily as this one.4
