As I've previously mentioned, I am very new to the Smashbox brand. I've always read great things about it but because nowhere near to me sells it, I've never bought any to try as I like to sample new products first. However, when I was away at my dad's the other week, we found a larger Boots branch with a Smashbox counter so I had a little play! After being colour-matched by the lovely sales assistant, I came away with the 'It's Your Prime' primer tester kit (post to follow shortly!) & a sample pot of their BB cream in light/medium shade.
There was enough product in the sample pot to test it for a week & I can honestly say, I don't think I've ever used a better BB cream. The coverage is seriously amazing, something that I don't usually get with BB creams, it doesn't exacerbate my oily T-zone, is semi-matte & has fantastic longevity, bearing in mind I was testing it out on one of the hottest weeks of the year. I would happily wear this in place of a foundation all year round & I love that it offers a broad spectrum SPF 35 too.
The blurb on the box states that it is a '5-in-1 complexion miracle-worker proven to prime, perfect, protect, hydrate & control oil' but I will admit, I was a wee bit sceptical after such a huge claim.......however, this little beauty offers all of those......and then some!! I was so impressed with it, I ordered the 15ml trial size (£12.50) straight away from the Smashbox website as I still wanted to test it for a while longer before buying a large tube. It was delivered in 2 days & can I just say kudos to Smashbox for offering free delivery & a free sample with every order, I like this very much!!
For the photo here, I applied it at 8.45am & removed it around 7.30pm & it still looked as fresh as it did when first applied! This is just before I removed it & the only thing I'd reapplied was my lippy!
I really do love this stuff & look forward to trying more products but purleasssssse, if you're reading this Smashbox, open a counter in Dundee!!
