One of the perks of going to The Makeup Show is getting early access to unreleased products. Whole I was at the show I picked up Smashbox’s new Photo Finish Primerizer. As a dry skin girl I really don’t reach for primers very often. My pores are small and my skin doesn’t get oily, so silicone based primers really do nothing for me. The “Primerizer” is a mix of a primer and a moisturizer that uses hyaluronic acid and niacinamide to hydrate the skin and prep it for foundation.
It blends away into nothing and doesn’t leave behind a white cast on darker skin tones. As you can see because the Primerizer is not silicone based there’s no blurring or skin smoothing effect. I’ve been using it whenever I do my makeup since I got it and it’s definitely moisturizing without being sticky or greasy and keeps my foundation in place even during these hot summer days. Finally a primer for us dry skin girls!
