Smashbox Primer Water, where have you been all my life?

By  |

You have no idea how excited I am about this new Smashbox Primer Water.  Oh, let me count the ways!  First of all, even if you don’t read what I have to say…RUN, don’t walk, to buy a bottle for yourself!

If you regularly stumble through the Chameleon Stampede, then you know I have oily skin and struggle to make my makeup last.  It’s a never ending battle.  I’ve tried lots of primers with varying results.  Some make my skin oilier.  Some do a nice job.  This one… The word that keeps coming to mind is wowza!

I’ve used it for a few days now and I’ve been going with ‘a couple sprays’ as a primer before my makeup and ‘a couple sprays’ when I’m all done to set everything for the day. My skin still ends up oily as the day goes on, but my makeup doesn’t seem to slide off!

Even after blotting at my face, which I simply have to do so that I don’t look like a hot mess, my makeup is still there!  It’s not separating and breaking down like it normally would.  I’ll also mention that I use a few different liquid foundations and have had the same great result with each of them.

Have you tried Smashbox Primer Water? Are you impressed!?!?

    So glad you found something helpful for oily skin especially for this hot summer! I have dry skin, and I wasn’t sure that I understood what this product was for. Now I think I get it!

      If you have dry skin, this may be a good topper for you with a nice moisturizer. Certainly worth a try. I love how light it is!

    I haven’t tried it yet b/c I’ve been on the fence. Everyone keeps comparing it to the MAC product that is a tad cheaper.

      I need to try the MAC to compare. I’ve heard great things about it.

      You totally should… I have no complaints at all. It’s doing great things for my afternoon meetings. I don’t frighten people because my makeup has disappeared! Hahahaha

      Definitely. If only little fairies would follow us around with fans and blotting papers, right?
