Confess my Obsession | Smashbox
Hey Dreamers, I have to confess.. Smashbox has been my obsession. I have bought enough products to know that Smashbox Photo Finish Primer products are what I am most obsessed with and where is why. I personally have very dry skin in the winter and this is no surprise living in Canada. I am also combination skin during the warmer months, but the most important thing for me when it comes to my skin is making sure it is hydrated before I apply anything else to my skin. These products have helped me maintain my hydration during the older and warmer months. These are products I use constantly before applying makeup, which is why I can confess I have been obsessed with all of it.
Starting off with the Smashbox photo finish foundation primer in "hydrating". As most of us know Smashbox has different photo finish primers that all have different tasks when priming the skin for makeup. I bought the hydrating one to obviously hydrate my skin, which it definitely does. This primer alone leaves me with a hydrated and smooth base for my foundation to be applied over. I love how refreshing it feels when applying it. It makes me want to go back to this product all the time just to experience what it does to my skin. Often times I mix this primer with the Smashbox photo finish pimerizer to give me the extra hydration and refreshens. Both together do wonders to your skin if you are combination or dry like me.
Side note: Sephora website doesn't carry this in Canada, but I bought this at my local Sephora.
The Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water has been my favourite thing when it comes to my makeup. This is because its quick and very easy to do so and that I can use this either before or after applying my cream primers to my face to lock in the primer all day. I usually mix my primerizer and photo finish hydrating primer than spray this all over my face. This was one of my favourites during the month of October and ever since then I've been using it. I love how easy it is to use because of how lazy I can be. ITS AMAZING!
The Smashbox photo finish primerizer is not only a hydrating primer, but it is also a moisturizer. This product is by far my favourite one out of all of the products mentioned. just by applying the product you know it is going to work right away. The product is very light and has a watery base compared to the photo finish hydrating primer. This is why I try and fix the two to get a perfect consistency and texture for my skin. With this product even when Im not going to wear makeup I always want to apply it because of the fact it is a moisturizer. This product is also very refreshing to the skin. It is close to the feeling that the Hard Candy coconut primer gives me when I apply it (CHECK IT OUT HERE). Lets just say I'm a huge fan.
Now on to the last one. Lets just take a moment to bless the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil. I had purchased this in Montreal when I went on a road trip with my best friend. I specifically use this during the old winter season here in Canada. This probably SAVED my makeup during those months when I would wear makeup to school. I was worried that this oil would feel like olive oil on my face (I don't know why) but it doesn't. It is able to settle into the skin really nicely and even when you apply it to the skin with the drop applicator it does not feel oily to the point where you feel like its olive oil on your face. It is able to prime my makeup during my very dry seasons while also giving me the extra hydration with the oil. I love this, but I'm not sure if I would use this during the warmer nights. I might be to afraid to do so.
