Smashbox Cosmetics

Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How it Works

The oil-free formula has vitamins A and E, grape seed extract, and green tea to smooth skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores. It leaves skin silky and matte, helping foundation last longer.

How to Use

Primer should be the last step before you apply makeup. Using your fingertips, apply a pea-size amount of primer to skin and blend in.

smooth!

This product glides on effortlessly. It made my make up look nice and washed off with no hard scrubbing needed.

Amazing Primer!!
Sampled

Got this primer on my May box and immediately put it to the test. I have combination oily skin and tried many different primers and oil mattifiers and this primer was by far much more superior. My make-up stayed on longer and my face was considerably less shiny-and all I used was less than a dime size amount of product. I still have some left from the sample, and will purchase as soon as I run out.

Best full face primer

This is the best full face primer on the market.... hands down!!! I've been using this primer for years. I have large pores and it helps to fill and hide each pore!

Unique results

Never used a primer and now will never leave home without Smash box primer. Goes on lightly and perfects the dry patches and wrinkles to offer a smooth base for blush, powder or blush. Feels light and hold moisture in the best way.

Primer.
Sampled

I've used several different primers. This was was decent. But for the price, I'll probably stick to one of the others I've used. It's comparable to cheaper brands.

I've been waiting to try this pricey product for a long time and was so pleased when it arrived in my May box. It is perfect for those special occasions when you need an extra oomph from your make-up!
