Smashbox Photo Finish Iconic Primer Stick Review

Updated: Nov 2, 2017

So a couple of weeks ago I was invited to the new #productlaunch for #Smashbox Cosmetics and to say the least I am super excited about a few of their new launches which I'm actually quite #obsessed with 1 already!

Introducing #Smashbox's new Iconic Primer Stick!

I was introduced to #primer's for the very first time through #Smashbox and ever since I've been hooked.

Needless to say I was excited about this 12-Hour #oilcontrol primer that comes in a stick, I mean brilliant right!

How it works?

Like most #primers you would apply this just before your #foundation to create a smooth and #matte surface or to use on top of your #makeup to absorb the #oil/#shine throughout the day. This primer claims to :

  • Minimize shine and oil

  • Blur imperfections

  • Enhance the performance of foundation

  • Helps makeup go-on flawlessly

What excited me about this product?

  • You can re-apply this over your #makeup, I mean if that isn't reason enough i don't know what is!

  • It's the perfect size, just pop it into your bag and you're good to go!

  • You no longer have to worry about carrying #blotting powder and brushes.

  • It's a great way to keep your makeup looking fresh throughout the day in areas you tend to get shiny.

My verdict :

I've tried and tested this product when I've worn a full face of makeup for an entire day. It didn't keep me #matte and oil free for 12Hours however I loved the fact that I could pop this into any bag and lightly dab it onto my shiny areas which instantly mattified. What I loved the most is that unlike powder it doesn't add any cakiness or texture to your skin when reapplying through out the day.

I definitely would recommend this product if like me you suffer from #oily and #shiny areas that still come through even after setting your makeup perfectly with #powders and #sprays. You can find this product at selected Woolworths, Edgars, Foshini and Red Square stores. Retails for : R495.00

Lots of love
