Smashbox Photo Finish

RATING (out of 5 stars): 4 stars
COST: $36
THE SKINNY: I may be becoming a Smashbox snob. After trying several foundation primers the last few months, I have to say I like the Smashbox Photo Finish primer the best. (Of course, it's the most expensive of any I've tried, too. Go figure.)
This primer is lighter and less greasy than its competition. It almost feels like a powder, even though it's not. It goes on smooth and easy. It actually did help my makeup stay in place longer. And it made my skin feel softer.
That's saying a lot. I'm usually not a big fan of primer because it's just one more layer of stuff on my face. Other brands have felt a little heavy on my skin. But I think I would be able to wear this product, even in the the middle of summer, when heat and humidity force me to leave the house wearing little to no makeup.
Photo Finish is infused with vitamins A and E, green tea and grapeseed oil, all stuff that's good for the skin.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep. The samples may be the only thing I can afford on a regular basis!
CHECK IT OUT: Smashbox also makes a light formula, for those with sensitive or blemish-prone skin.
