love this primer! I have large pores on my nose and this makes them practically invisible under my foundation. I also tend to get oily skin in my t-zone and this matifies those areas.
I have tried a ton of different primers over the years and I keep coming back to this one! I haven not found one that works better for oily skin. It keeps my skin matte. It keeps my make up in place all day. It also works on its own to keep my face shine-free; I just apply it over my moisturizer.
J'adore ce pore minimizing de smashbox. Il laisse ma peau tellement douce et c'est une très bonne vase sous le fond de teint. Je n'ai pas l'impression d'appliquer quoi que ce soit et camouffle très bien les pores.
Overall, I was satisfied with this Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer and I loved the way it smoothed the look of my pores and fine lines. It goes on smooth over softer, smoother areas of my face. Be careful using this primer over dry patches, however, as it can feel chalky. I would also recommend sticking with lighter makeups if you're going to wear anything over this primer as it can feel a bit heavy.
This primer is the only one I have found that doesn't make my face feel like I just added another layer of moisturizer. It gives me a nice soft base to add my foundation to. Great product! the price is a bit more but lasts for so long.
This product does not work well at all ! From personal experience on dark/ mixed complexion! It leaves a white film residue which is very unpleasantly unattractive.
I love this stuff! When i it on it makes my skin feel like silk! and its great for keeping my makeup on all day. I have really oily skin and this also helps control it for most of the day.
The smashbox photo finish foundation primer for minimizing pores is truly a miracle product in a bottle. This primer helps to reduce the visibility of my enlarged pores on my nose, chin and forehead. This product was recommended to me by a fellow blogger and i have to say she was absolutely right.
It doesnt leave your face feeling heavy or oily. and the best thing is that it blends right in with your natural skin tone so that it can be worn underneath a moisturizer or BB cream for those days where you feel like taking a break from foundation.
I don't think this product did anything to/ for my pores but like other Smashbox primers it definitely did its job effectively priming my face for foundation. It goes on mostly smooth (some spots cake and don't smooth out very well) but it definitely helps my makeup go on evenly and last longer than usual.
