REVIEW: Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water

If you're a regular watcher of my Make-Up tutorials on Youtube, you will probably know that an all time favourite primer of mine is this one, the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water

I'm pretty sure it was one of the first 'Primer Water's' that came out, or at leafs it was one of the ones I heard everyone talking about first and I decided that the concept seemed cool and I wanted to give it a go myself as primers are something I always seem to be on the hunt for.  

The product is so quick and easy to fit into your routine so it's great if you're a bit lazy when it comes to skincare/make-up but still expect good results. You just spritz a bit onto your skin and let it sink if for a few seconds before applying your make-up as normal. I feel like it also adds an extra layer of moisture to my skin which is great, especially in the Winter months. 

I've been using this primer most days now for a good couple of months and feel like I really know the product quite well. I honestly can't get enough of it. I love the feeling of spraying it onto my face in the mornings, it really helps to wake up my tired skin as well as pro-longing my make-up for a little longer through out the day.

If I'm wanting my make-up to last all day or perhaps for an evening look, I will use another primer alongside this one. I often use the Body Shop Instablur or the Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer just to give an extra boost and really try to keep my make-up in place. 

I do think that it helps to keep my make-up looking nice for a little longer, but occasionally I do also use this as a regular face mist, so often on top of make-up to help set it and I'm pretty sure it does an alright job. 

I definitely think that if you're a total make-up junkie and love to try out new products then you should give this a go, I think it's a great addition to any make-up collection.

Have you tried the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water? If so, let me know your thoughts...

Lots of love x


  1. I got the Smashbox Primer Water has a 100 point perk at Sephora about a month ago and it's still sitting waiting to be used and tested out. I'm so scared that it's just water. I generally don't like using foundation without a proper primer so spraying just 'water' on my face feels like a mis-step in my routine.
