Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer

Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer
This retails at £15* for 2.5ml, which places it on the higher end of eyelid primers.  I’ve been testing this out for at least a month now and I have to admit I really quite enjoy it.  I may even prefer it over my mac painterly paint pot as a lid primer.  Plus I prefer using the doe foot applicator over sticking my finger into the paint pot, I can use it directly on my eyelid or onto the back of my hand.  This has quite a creamy consistency,  it’s not overly thick and you only need a small amount to smooth onto your eyelid.

I tend to apply this just after I apply my face primer.  Then I’ll apply my foundation, so it allows time for this primer to settle.  I would say that you need to leave it for a bit and you may see it crease slightly.  Once I’ve applied my foundation I run my finger back over my lids, getting rid of any creasing before I then sweep a flesh coloured eyeshadow over the top, setting it in place.  This also makes it easier to blend eyeshadows over the top, it’s a habit I’ve been attempting to get into anyway!
Smashbox Lid Primer Before After
I do think this helps to even out any blue or purple on my eyelids, which for us translucent folks can be a problem. You can see in the before and after photo that my eyelid colour appears more even.  It’s only a small difference, but it’s enough to make a difference to the appearance of my eyeshadows.
All in all I really enjoy this lid primer and would definitely recommend checking it out if you are in search of something new.
