Smashbox Photo Set Finishing Powder Review

Thursday, 21 February 2013

I was looking for a new finishing powder for a while, I tried a loads of different brands from high end to high street but nothing worked for me. I needed something that kept my oily skin shine free for as long as possible. I was buying a primer from the Smashbox website and this caught my eye, so I brought it. That was the best decision I ever made!

It's not often I find a product and can call it a HG product but this is it! It keeps me shine free for most of the day, and if my skins being good for me I'm shine free all day. ALL DAY! I was amazed. I apply it in the morning after putting my foundation and concealer on, you only need a really small amount to cover the face so I can see it lasting ages. Sometimes if my skins being super oily I'll need to touch up once a day but that's it which is amazing as with my last powder I was touching up like once an hour, not even kidding!

The only fault I can find is that if you apply too much, it can leave white patches but that's only if you slap it on, which I'm sure most people don't do haha.

So I would certainly recommend this to all my fellow oily skinned readers as for me, it's worked wonders for my skin. It also leaves my skin really soft which I really like. I will continue to purchase this when I've ran out, it costs £18 which I think is a great price for something that works this well.
