I am seriously in two minds over the whole Smashbox range right now. I ordered their Photo Finish Colour Correcting Primer and the Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation. First off it does look a little odd, but the Photo Finish Primer is beyond any other primer that I’ve ever even laid eyes on. It seems weird at first to apply something the color of split pea soup to your face, but the green works to counteract any blemishes, dark spots, and discoloration… and it easily blends to be completely translucent.
After loving the primer I was under whelmed by the Studio Skin 15 Hour Long Hydrating Foundation. I was sceptical about this formula as has gathered quite the buzz for being specifically designed to be able to be worn under hot studio lights so I was really hoping that it would do the job. For me this is a really light-weight foundation and although it can be built upon for a more full coverage It wasn't what i was looking for.
According to Smashbox, it is also “water, sweat, humidity, oil and transfer resistant, and also helps control oil.” -Yes if your someone who has to stand around taking photos of yourself and getting your make up touched up every few minuets then yes it works brilliantly! It’s not quite worth the price, and I honestly feel like I have been robbed of £28! After hearing great review I was really hoping the foundation would work a lot better with my skin but it really just isn't for me. I do love the primer don't get me wrong but I can't say that I made so much impact that I would buy it again as there are only just as good and at cheeper prices.
