Smashbox More Than Primer

RATING (out of 5 stars): 2 stars

COST: $42

THE SKINNY: I've been a fan of Smashbox primers for years and especially love the luminizing forumla. But this one, formulated to erase dark spots and brighten your complexion, is disappointing.

For starters, it's creamier than the other Smashbox offerings, which tend to be more waxy. The creamier version, while easier to apply, doesn't offer the same coverage. So I don't see that Smashbox "camera ready" result.

Smashbox More That Primer also seems to skimp on the primer part. My makeup didn't last any longer.

And I didn't notice any change in my dark spots after a few weeks of use.

That's disappointing for a brand that has worked so well in the past.

KEEP OR TOSS: Toss.

CHECK IT OUT: Smashbox recommends using this product twice a day.
