Review: Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Oil-Free Foundation Primer

Smashbox has some of the best foundation primers on the market and recently, they’ve added another strong contender to the market. Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Oil-Free Foundation Primer blurs the look of pores and mattifies the skin to give your foundation the perfect base.

This sweat and humidity resistant formula comes in a squeeze tube and prevents the need for frequent touch ups so your makeup stays fresh and oil-free for up to 8 hours. You can also apply to areas that need a little bit of shine control. It has an interesting texture because it comes out like a cream but as it’s blended in, it feels like a powder. It’s a light cream colour but as it blends in it doesn’t actually change the colour of your skin or makeup.

Review: Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Oil-Free Foundation Primer


My Thoughts: Even though minimizing the look of pores isn’t one of my main concerns since mine are pretty small, the primer still did a really great job of blurring fine lines on my face. I love the texture of it because it makes my skin feel so silky and does a really good job of preparing my skin for foundation and getting it to stay in place. You only need a little pea-sized amount of it because a little will go a long way and if you use more, you will notice the primer start to flake so keep the amount very small! It does have silicone in it so if you’re concerned about that or have an allergy, you might want to test it out first. I’ve used the original Photo Finish primer but I actually prefer this one because of the blurring effects and its sweat-resistant formula!
