A few weeks ago, I stepped into my local Sephora looking for a new primer. I find gel type primers very drying on my face and I was looking for a more moisturizing primer. I came across the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water, thanks to one of the sales associates.
At first I wasn’t sold on it as it was primer water, so I wasn’t sure how my makeup would last wearing it but I decided to give it a whirl. Plus, as you may already know, I am a sucker for trying out new makeup products.
I went for the smaller bottle as it wasn’t a product that they could give me a sample of since it was a spray bottle and this way if I didn’t love it, I wouldn’t have spent a lot of money.
When I first sprayed it on my face, the primer made my skin feel revitalized right away, it felt so refreshing. The primer reawakens the skin and restores moisture into the skin which is very important. It’s also packed with electrolytes and free of alcohol, oil and silicone (always a plus). My favourite way to use the primer is by spritzing it on my face in the middle of the day to reawaken my look.
How to use the primer: Hold the bottle 8″-10″ away from your face and mist evenly. I first do a T across my face then a X.
This multi-purpose primer doesn’t only moisturize and lock down makeup, here are 4 ways to use the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water.
Today on the blog I am reviewing Younique’s 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara set. My infatuation with the mascara started around Christmas time, when I saw a girl on Google+ post a “Before and After” shot of her lashes wearing the mascara. I was beyond intrigued however after doing some research, I couldn’t find anyone that was selling the mascara in my area. Fast forward a few months later, I found out my friend started selling it and she was nice enough to give me a set to review plus a set to give away! (See GIVEAWAY instructions below).
