Smashbox photo finish

It’s time for another review, and this time I’ll be sharing my thoughts on Smashbox Photo Finish Primer. I bought this a while back at ‘Kicks’ cause I’ve been struggling with redness almost all my life, or at least since I was a teenager. It hasn’t really gone even though I use high-end skincare products daily.

I was happy to have found a primer that had a green tone to it because this, as I’m sure you know, is the complimentary color to red. Which basically means that those two colors putt together should even out my skin tone. I bought this for 260 kr, so my hopes where high.


First of the consistency is uneven and when I work it in my hands it gets clumpy and almost feels watery. Additionally I have to use a lot to even out the color of my skin, and to be honest in the end I can’t see any difference. I also noticed when I first started using this product that whenever I didn’t clean my skin afterwards, I would break out and get spots where I applied it. This usually doesn’t happen with any make-up that I’ve tried.

As you can see there is hardly any difference, if any at all. This products is an absolute waist of money and it’s safe to say I will not buy this again.

Review: Everyday make-up products

NYX matte lip cream 4-stars

nyx

Easy to apply, non sticky with a matt finish.The only reason this didn’t get a five star rating from me was that it’s not that long lasting, and it can dry out your lips a little.

BareMinerals powder foundation:3-starsbm
This foundation works with your skin and gives you a natural look, perfect for those lazy days where you only need a light coverage. Doesn’t give you a full coverage and  I have gotten some dry patches when using this is curtain areas.

BareMinerals bronze powder:stars-kopi

This is the best contouring powder I’ve every used and it deserves a five star rating. Easy to apply, you don’t need much product and it has lasted me for years.

Smashbox contour trio:2-stars

I was really exited to try this, but truth be told, smash box disappointed me. The lightest color, which is ment for highlighting, is even darker then my regular foundation. The only good thing is the two different shades of darker contour pens. But then again, they are hard to blend.

L’orèal perfect liner:stars-kopisuperliner

By far the best liner I’ve tried. It has a small tip which makes it easy to apply a nice winged liner and you don’t necessarily need a eyelid primer beforehand cause it will stay in place all day.

BareMinerals complexion rescue4-stars

This is a light coverage BB/CC cream. Like all the other Bare Mineral products, it works with your skin and gives you a really nice glow. The only down side is that you don’t get a lot for you money. It’s quite expensive and doesn’t last more then 4 months.

L’orèal volume mascara4-stars

I’ve always gone back to this mascara after trying several different once over the years. It gives you length and volume, and it doesn’t clump. However it doesn’t give you the perfect curl to your lashes even if you use an eyelash curler.


I hope this review was helpful for up and coming beauty products you want to buy. These are products I’ve mostly used over the last year and they are all my honest opinion.

The winner is definitely BareMinerals bronze powder & I will also go back and buy more of NYX matte lip cream.
