Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil ($42) is a new permanent face oil primer that’s available for Spring 2016. Oh how I loved Make Up For Ever HD Elixir is it possible Photo Finish Primer Oil might replicate it?!
According to Smashbox their new lustrous face oil is quick to absorb and contains a blend of 15 essential oils and lipid-rich plant oils such as chamomile and lavender.
This one acts to sooth as it reduces dry skin. You can mix it with your foundation or apply it prior to give your complexion a youthful dewy glow. Or even use it on split ends, cuticles, and elbows to restore moisture.
It Cosmetics No. 50 Serum Foundation Primer is something that’s far to rich for me to use in the day and I feel like perhaps Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil might be too. Don’t get me wrong I’m pretty dry particularly around my cheeks but I don’t use any of my facial oils to prep with as they make me look kinda greasy and shiny. A solid hydrating primer is one thing but an oil, for me, is something completely different.
Count me curious but a little skeptical of the new Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil. I don’t doubt it’ll be a great face oil, I just doubt it’ll work well as a primer for most skin types!
How about you?
Think it’ll go over big?
