Primer is something that every girl (or guy <3) should use if you want a flawless look thats gonna last for a while. Personally, I started using primer about two years ago, and the first one that I purchased was a sephora brand primer, and it was a pretty good deal. I paid about $14 for it, and it worked pretty well. I ended up liking it quite a lot so I bought another one as well.
This past semester, one of my roommates and bestfriends Sneh had gotten the Smash Box Photo Finish Primer. She told me it was a good primer and she told me that I had to try it. As soon as I put this primer on my face, I was sold. HOLY CRAP! This primer is something that is SERIOUSLY worth the money. Yes, its very pricey, I’m not going to lie, BUT it is the most amazing tube of product I’ve ever gotten my hands on. Turns out my precious roommate had also gotten me this magic tube of perfection for my birthday. ❤ (YAY!)
I’ve had this primer for about 2 weeks now and it really is incredible. Its a clear cream like lotion that applies amazingly. Literally, the moment I put this on my face, it gets rid of any uneveness on my skin, masks any bumps or pores, and fills in my fine lines like a pro. It allows my face to feel silky smooth and buttery without being too oily, which is awesome for my oily/combo skin. This primer also helps to inhibit the destruction of collagen and the vitamins and antioxidants help smooth over your skin, pores, and fine lines to achieve that flawless end result. After I use this primer, my foundation practically glides onto my face with such ease. Honestly, I don’t know what I ever did without this primer.
It runs for about $36 at sephora, yes, that’s a hefty price for some primer, but I really believe it’s worth the money because it does make my face feel amazing, and ever since I’ve started using it my face doesn’t really break out as much and I feel like my face is just generally softer and clearer overall. If you don’t wanna pay $36 for the big tube, sephora does also sell a smaller version for about $15! For all those who want to try this product but aren’t sure if it’s worth the money, I highly recommend marching into your nearest sephora and asking one of the sales associates if you can take home a sample of primer. I do it all the time, because I’m just one of those people that have to try something before I buy it (especially if it’s a higher end product).
I’m on the lookout for a good drug store primer as well, so as soon as I find one that I like I’ll definitely review that one too. If you have a drug store primer you think I should try, or have any questions or concerns comment below :]
