I love all of the Smashbox products they all seem to work really well and feel really nice on your skin. I have sensitive skin and this did not irritate my skin at all. I would recommend this to others.

I first purchased this primer with a tad bit of skepticism. I use it primarily with either Make Up Forever HD Foundation, Estée Lauder Doublewear Foundation, or Loreal True Match LUMI. It makes your face very soft. It does help keep the foundation on, but not all day. It's about an 8 hour stay. It works best for me with the Make Up Forever Foundation. I wouldn't go out and splurge if you're on a budget or have really dry skin. It definitely has a matte finish and makes me feel dryer than my oily/combination skin usually does. As for the pore reduction, I can't really see where that happens. It's also hard to use a small amount. I find myself squeezing several times to cover my main areas. I feel like you have to use a lot to get results. Overall, it's a good primer, but it's not worth $40+

Love this color corrector but it definitely is a little bit pricey which isn’t the best to repurchase

 I was so excited to try this product! I'm always tempted by green-toned make-up as I struggle with redness on my cheeks and around any blemishes. I have very pale, combination skin.

I always use a primer, as I need my make-up to last all day and stay fresh. Smashbox primers are a cult classic for a reason, they really do their job well. A pea-sized amount applied all over the face helps to create a silky barrier between your skin and your foundation. This means that it doesn't sink into any pores or settle into fine lines, helping to create a blurred and more even effect. DON'T use a huge amount, primer works better if you use a little bit and let it settle before you apply your foundation.

In terms of counteracting redness, this is the perfect first step in your routine if redness is one of your concerns. It's not going to wipe out all the red, but it certainly helps. Team it up with a green concealer on blemishes, an illuminating foundation (Smashbox Liquid Halo is the holy grail of foundations) and a light dusting of powder (yellow-toned powder will counteract redness even more).

Overall I'd say this is a good buy if you want a high-quality primer with skincare benefits (the formula contains vitamin A and E, aloe, lemongrass, soybean oil and orchid complex), as well as something to start off your redness-concealing routine. It's a little pricey but will last you ages if you use the right amount. Give all the Smashbox variants a swatch if you're looking for a primer, with all their variants you'll definitely find the right one for you!
