Primer

Although it is a bit pricy, it works really well on my skin.
I have extremely dry skin and not all products actually do work well on my skin but this primer did and it left my skin hydrating and refreshing.
I highly recommend this product to people with dry skin

Pore Minimizer

To be honest , I have a dry/normal skin type , I have pores on my face , visible regardless of what I use , I will not lie and say this product is amazing , it's good , not a complete cover up though. Applying it feels like you're applying a powder onto your face , then after applying my Smashbox foundation as well , it still did not give a complete cover up look. But , you could see a slight difference , my face looked matte if we had to describe it with an adjective , matte with visible pores, redness wasn't visible AT ALL (I have very fair skin, as in almost pale so i am red constantly ) so , honestly to round it up , redness was reduced , pores were slightly reduced and it created a matte look.

SMASHBOX for the WIN!

Oh Smashbox has done it again.

I actually bought this product a month ago for one of my clients. It looked so good on her I wanted to test it out on my skin type (oily) and I have to say A ROUND OF APPLAUSE!

I have large pores on my nose and cheeks and once I slapped this bad boy on...I look like a Photoshop Barbie.

Now, I've used every primer under the sun, including the Baby Skin Primer, and this one knocks it out the park.

My makeup now lasts longer and my face doesn't get oily that fast. If you do have oily skin, I suggest you get this primer and use a matte finish foundation (eg. Yardley). Apply it with a damp beauty blender and you're good to go :)

The price is a tad steep compared to other top quality primers, but I promise IT LASTS a decade. Please girls...you only need a pee size amount and it will spread like butter!

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Pore Minimizer

Now I’m one that suffers from big pores on my face and I’ve tried countless products to reduce the pores. Considering the fact that I have oily combination skin, I’ve always tried to stick to matte products (primers and foundations). I recently purchased the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Pore Minimizer, I need I say, I found the perfect solution for my pores. This primer has an oil based texture and almost a nude colour (obviously this worried me consider that I’m dark skinned). I hesitantly applied some on my t-zone and was pleasantly surprised by how it just adapts to my skin tone. It gave my t-zone that smooth canvas and glided on my skin with a velvety texture. It applies matte therefore minimising my shine throughout the day. This product is a must get and is available from major beauty / department stores and retails for around R395
