Birchbox Breakdown

Created in Smashbox Cosmetics’ Los Angeles photo studio to help makeup last longer and look great on set, this hard-working primer is just what we need to feel photo-ready. The non-drying formula absorbs oil to keep our skin looking and feeling smoother and shine-free for up to eight hours, plus it instantly reduces the appearance of visible pores and helps makeup last all day (based on a study with 99 users). Sweat and humidity-resistant, it even wears alone on bare skin for a blurred-out effect.

How to Use

Use your fingertips to apply a dime-sized amount of primer onto clean skin before applying makeup. For extra shine control, pat a small amount of primer over makeup.

Didn’t blend into my skin

I tried to use it a few different times but it wouldn’t blend in smoothly. I wanted to like it, but couldn’t convince myself.
