One of the more unusual products that has been getting a lot of hype lately is the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water*, so when I had to pick my top Smashbox product to try out it was the easy winner. It comes in a regular spray bottle you simply spray your skin before applying your foundation, although it can also be used as a setting spray or simply to refresh your makeup.
Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water is free silicones, alcohol, and oil, which is what gives it that refreshing feeling without being greasy or drying. It takes a moment to absorb into the skin, but then I don’t really notice it, especially after I apply foundation on top. I find that it helps my foundation go on smoother, with a more even finish, and also helps to prolong the wear. However, in terms of making your makeup last forever, it probably wouldn’t replace traditional primers for extra oily skin or extra hot days. That said, for my regular day-to-day, it does the job and the best part is that it’s so incredibly easy to use!
I really love the concept of the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water, and as I shared on instagram, I really wish I could apply all of my makeup this way! It definitely helps my makeup go on smoother, and does a decent job at prolonging it as well, so as long as you aren’t looking for the super-glue version of primer I would definitely consider testing this out instead.
Would you consider trying a primer water instead? What else do you wish they made is spray format? Ripe avocado? Yum…
