Light, non-greasy
Liked this primer overall, quite expensive for what it is but helped my makeup to look fresh throughout the day, lightweight and non-greasy, good for oil control on T-zone, will continue to use
Nothing much compares
This is the absolute best primer i have used. It leaves you with glass looking skin, a little goes a long way. The price point is a little high but its absolutely worth thr money. I have been purchasing this since 2017.
I was a little disappointed with this product! I don't know if it baked in the sun while on route to my address but when I tried it came out all oily . It had separated in the tube that I had to give it a good shake! It went on nice though and does cover well but I was a bit put off at seeing the oil separate , used a few times now and it's ok
Love smash box
This is just one product of a many line of well thought out and well manufactured products. It’s certainly does the job. Trust me. You will not be disappointed. Great value for money also
Great primer
My go to primer was the smashbox photo finish primer which is great but as someone with oily/combination skin, especially around my t-zone I was excited to try this one. A little goes a long way and it applies to the skin flawlessly. It creates a great base for my foundation and I don’t find myself real lying powder throughout the day as much with this primer as I do with other primers. Smashbox is my go to brand for primers and I love this one. Not sure I would give up the original for it though but when it’s on offer it’s a brilliant price!
Great little product especially for the t zone.. wouldn't say it's the best one out there, but it's a really good one and definitely would purchase again..
I received a small sample of this. it is a really good primer, it goes on smoothly and doesn't pill when you apply foundation over the top, it leaves you with a nice smooth finish.
smashbox smashes good
smashbox sells amazing product and i got this on offer online it felt so great and gave amazing results i would buy again on offer
Using even the tiniest amount gives a very smooth even base and a little goes a long way. It makes my skin feel so soft and i can use this with or without foundation on top. Highly recommend.
New fav!
I had a sample of this during lockdown as I have combination dry/oily skin and couldn’t find a primer that worked for me. This stuff is great and leaves your skin looking and feeling incredibly smooth which means my foundation looks a lot better. Loved it so much I purchased the full sized product.
Amazing !
I have the dreaded oily/dry skin, so completely oily t-zone but very dry cheeks. This primer is amazing. Not drying but keeps the oil at bay after a 9 hour shift in a supermarket ! Would 100% recommend this product.
My favourite primer I have used to date
u has only just started using this before the lockdown but this is my favourite primer to date. It’s very texture smooth and leaves your face looking smooth
Fantastic primer!!
This is an amazing primer!!! Gives you a flawless finish and your make stays on all night!!
Game changer
I love make up and haven't found a primer I love more. My skin isnt the best however with this product I feel like I have a blank canvas to work on. Smooth blemish free skin for the win!
This is by far the best primer ive tried for oil control , leaves skin more matte and prevents oil breakouts during wear
