Sample Sunday with Smashbox!

I got this sample through an Asos promotion last year and have been looking forward to trying it out. 

It sounds great for pores and Smashbox are great at producing excellent primers. 

Their other primers are clear gel, like Photo Finish, but the squirted out in a peach like colour! 

I was surprised, as the others are clear, but smoothing it on was great and felt good.
This is more the colour of Benefit Cosmetics Porefessional

The smooth consistency of this Smashbox promer is lovely on and feels good. 

Great to try this out, but i will be sticking with Porefessional as the smoothy creamy feel on my face wins over this! Plus Benefit Cosmetics is £1 cheaper! 
This Smashbox primer is RRP £25. 


  1. I have the original Smashbox primer and I really wasn't impressed. Yes it smooths out the face but makeup just doesn't sit right on top of it x

    1. The consistency of the original one isn't my favourite, as gel ones feel a little strange. This is much better in texture though. But as I said Porefessional definitely wins the Primer award, hands down! :)

  2. Ooh, I haven't tried this one but I really liked the Photo Finish so I'll check it out :) xx

    1. It is a bit more expensive, so be sure to sample at a counter first :)

  3. That's weird that they've brought out a coloured one, I wonder if it is because of the Porefessional? The first primer I ever tried was Smashbox and I loved how smoothing it was on my skin, but it is quite expensive and I've found others work just as well :)

    1. I know so strange! ALL the other primers are clear! I think it is because of the success of the Benefit one. I definitely prefer the porefessional over this :)

  4. This looks good, I'll have to check it out, great post :)
