In the style of yer woman off the M+S food ads: This is not just any primer. This is Smashbox's newest primer. It's a version of their much lauded Photo Finish Foundation Primer, but this time around it's formulated specifically for oily, acne-prone or sensitive skins. Photo Finish Light is oil-free and 60% water based, can be worn alone or under foundation, and claims to provide total complexion perfection. It is also supposed to minimize the appearance of imperfections thanks to light diffusers, and contains vitamin C and peptides to help even skin tone and promote collagen production.
Them's big claims for a little square bottle of white stuff.
It is matifying and it really helped my make-up last - a foundation that would usually have done a legger from my T-zone by lunchtime stayed put all day without needing to be touched up. And on my non-foundation wearing days [don't worry, I didn't leave the house], my skin tone actually did look more even and my skin seemed more plumped up.
Smashbox Photo Finish Light... small but mighty!
