It's Your Prime - Smash Box Primer Review


I have never had much luck with foundation primers. The primers I have tried in the past have often made my skin very oily, causing my makeup to slide right off, but I have never lost hope, & have always been on the hunt for the perfect primer.

I had heard so many great thing about smash box primers, so decided to give them a try. I went onto there uk website and took a look at there wide range of primers (wow they have a lot to choose from) I decided on the 'Its Your Prime' miniature travel sized primer set. Containing a photo finish foundation primer, a photo finish lid primer & Hydrating Under Eye Primer, which is fairly new to the smash box primer collection. For just £14 I thought I would be able to trial these products to see if they work for me before I buy the big ol' bottles.



Photo Finish Foundation Primer - A clear gel like consistency that makes my face feel super soft and smooth. On my fairly sensitive skin it works well & boy does it make a difference to the longevity of my foundation. It stops foundation gathering in dry patches, makes foundation application smooth and easy, and my foundation lasts so much longer. I am hooked on this product & will definitely be buying a bigger bottle of this when the mini one runs out. 


Photo finish lid primer - I don't think this evens out the skin tone on my lids but it most definitely does help with the staying power of my eyeshadow. Using this has made me realise that lid primers are a god send, but I'm not so convinced that I will be buying one from this brand again. 


Hydrating Under Eye Primer - This product gives my under eye a healthy dewy glow, I can't say this helps with the longevity of my under eye concealer, But if you are looking for a youthful under eye glow, this is a great product for you. As it is infused with anti-ageing, ingredients such as caffeine, peptides and optical diffusers, claiming to Hydrate skin, cover dark circles, reduce puffiness, blur fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture & skin tone.



Here is the direct link to Its Your Prime for £14 I think this is such a good deal.
