Unlike Hollywood royalty, we only have cameras pointed at us when we're 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 got this as a sample and will definitely be purchasing a full size! I love the way it feels and how smoothly it goes on. Very impressed!5
I got this as an extra free sample when I first signed up and have been using ever since!5
I love this product, I like that they added a more "high end" product to try out. Holds foundation on nicely and would totally purchase if I got the chance.4
I haven't been able to find a primer better than Smashbox.
On work days, I have my makeup on for about 16 hours. I put this on my T zone (you don't need a lot) and it keeps my makeup on. I would say the amount of breakdown of my foundation depends on several factors even WITH primer. If I use all the right products, tools, and techniques, this primer does it's job. There's a reason so many people rave about it.
Love this stuff! I was worried it would feel slick on my face but it doesn't and it keeps my foundation in place!5
I cannot say enough good things about this product. Buy it now! Do not be worried about the texture of this product (it feels like silicon), it has never caused me to break out and I am constantly fighting acne. This sets a good base that will keep your foundation, bb cream or tinted moisturizer on your face all day/night. Plus it does not make you greasy, which was my main concern. I have bought this product over and over again. There is nothing like it!5
Smashbox is my all time favorite brand for primers. It really smooths out the skin and blurs pores to give a flawless finish5
I received this as a deluxe sample and it was the first primer I ever used. I'm hooked. I can't believe the difference this makes in how my make up blends but also, NO CREASING. I'm in love.5
