Smashbox Photofinish Primer / Victoria's Secret PRO Airbrush FX Face Primer SPF 2

I wouldn't know what I would do if I didn't have my foundation primer....

I found out about Smashbox Photofinish Primer thro
ugh makeup-alley reviews & Kim Kardashian's blog. I went out to buy the travel size at Sephora for like $17. I went home & tried it and MAN...my foundation went on SO DAMN SMOOTH. No lighter blotches or anything. Flawless. My mom even noticed how smooth and flawless it looked.

Of course you must apply moisturizer first. Wait at least a min then apply your primer on. Wait a min for it to try then the foundation.

I was very happy on the results & went ahead & bought the 1 oz bottle for $36. Pretty pricey....

I am now on my 2nd bottle.

Tell me why my pump doesn't work anymore?? There is more than half left & I have to scrape it out with a damn q-tip. Sucks.

My sister got tired of me complaining about her using up my Smashbox primer. I only need ONE PUMP..she uses wayy more than one pump. But anyways, she went out and bought the Victoria's Secret Pro Airbrush FX primer for only $ $14. It comes in .85 oz. A lil less than the Smashbox but HELLA cheaper.

I tried it out the next day & it works well as the Smashbox OIL-FREE primer. The pump still works lol.

I so wished Victoria's Secret came out with this before I bought the Smashbox one.

Next post will be on recommendations for Asian tanned OR yellow undertones or NC 37 NC40 NC42 skintone.
