I know that some people don’t like/use primers. I personally don’t use primers for myself on a daily basis but I do use primers for important events and for photos and just when I am in a mood for a primer 🙂
Maybe if you don’t like primers – you just haven’t found the right one for yourself yet. But these days, with such a variety of products, I think that everyone has a chance to find one.
Today let’s take a look at the new Smashbox Primers. I haven’t tried them so I’ll just post what the brand promises, hopefully some of you will find it helpful.
Smashbox Photo Finish Light Foundation Primer ($36)
“This 60% water-based primer is ideal for oily, acne-prone or sensitive skin. The silky blend of vitamins and antioxidants helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores for visibly softer skin and can be worn alone or under foundation to increase its longevity. The revolutionary formula has oil absorbers for a smooth matte finish all day, light diffusers to minimize the appearance of imperfections, and vitamin C and peptides to help even skin tone and promote collagen production for a flawless future.”

“Get a gorgeous glow! This adds just the right amount of luminosity. The velvety formula helps fill in fine lines and pores with age-fighting antioxidants such as green tea, grapeseed extract, and vitamins A, C and E. And, of course, it extends the wear of foundation.”
