Smashbox review by Kiran

As you know I'm a huge fan of the Smashbox Primer so I thought I'd try out the foundation. I usually stick to my Bobbi Brown which don't get me wrong is great but wanted to invest in a foundation with maximum coverage. This Smashbox Foundation I would definitely recommend as you don't have to apply that much at all and it still gives you a nice even-toned finish. The finish is matte and didn't leave my face oily as the day went on. The only set back is the price on a student budget it is quite dear however personally I only use premium brands as I feel dug-store brands don't have the colours for my skin tone. I also purchased the liquid liner I do love my L'Oreal gel liner however if when I'm in a rush I wanted a liner I could apply quickly and get it right first time! Another thing I would like to add is how friendly the staff are the assistant gave me some samples of the Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara and the Photo Finish Primer which I already have and love and also tried out other foundations from the Smashbox range before making the choice. Would love to hear your experiences about Smashbox products or if you have any questions feel free to ask.

  1. Love the mascara! I found the wand a little difficult to get used to though as its so big! (Sorry if i posted this twice just the first one didn't appear!)

  2. Hey I'm Asia
    I get really oily skin through out the day and even more so when I wear foundation or make-up I've never used a primer before and don't quite know what they do excatly but I've heard they are good for oily skins and I was wondering what your opinion would be?

    Thanks :)

  3. Lovely products! x

  4. Still on a hunt for a foundation that I feel happy with! After reading this I'll definitely give this a go! Although I'm bound to cry at the price a little bit!

  5. Hi sorry it's taken me awhile to reply, the foundation is really long wearing after a long day at uni it stays put and my skin isn't oily whatsoever when wearing this foundation also if unsure check out my blog where I mention smashbox, bobbi brown and mac foundations
