Primed and Photo Ready

Hello Lovelies (:

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend, I missed the bbloggers chat last night ): I don't like to miss them as I love interacting with other bloggers and also getting lots of lovely blog links to read!

Anyway I orderd the Smashbox Photo Finish Light Oil Free Primer from a couple of weeks ago as it was on my Makeup Wishlist, I bought the travel size 12ml bottle costing £12.50. I wanted to try this primer mainly because I rarely ever use one and because I was finding that my makeup wasn't lasting as long as well as my foundation had started to cling to dry patches that had appeared on my face. I apply this product on top of my moisturiser before applying my foundation, it sinks into the skin quite fast so I have to be quick with the blending. It leaves a velvet like texture on the skin and doesn't feel heavy.

I have found since using this that it gives a smooth, more flawless finish to my foundation especially around my nose where foundation sometimes tends to sit in the pores. I have used this product a few times now and do not seem to have broken out from it which is always a concern for me when using new products on my face. If I have been wearing a primer in the day then I tend to double cleanse in the evening to ensure I have removed all trace of the primer and any makeup. I am still undecided as to whether I am going to purchse the full product as I am not sure if it prevents me from touching up with powder as often but I have enough of this travel size to keep me going until I have made up my mind!

Thank you for reading



  1. I'd be interested in knowing how you get on with this, I have a love/hate relationship with primers!

  2. Oh really that's not good! Which ones have you tried?
