I was on a hunt for a finishing powder for quite some time and bough the Smashbox Finishing Powder based on the good reviews on here and was nowhere near disappointed! This stuff is amazing! I have combo-skin (oily T-zone) and used about 3-4 blotting sheets a day. With this powder I need 1 or none. :D My foundation routine consists off Smashbox primer (light), MUFE mat velvet+, Smashbox powder and Skindinavia setting spray for oily skin. To me, the best routine I have ever used! As mentioned before, a little goes a loooong way! Using to much is really going to ruin the airbrushed look. I had to rate pricing a 4, just because Smashbox is a lot more expensive here than in the US, but I can highly, highly recommend this product to anyone who's aiming for a matte look. I have acne prone skin, so I am not fond of trying out new cosmetic but this baby gave me nothing but matte skin! HG product worth a try!
My HG foundation! I used to use CS for two years and was really pleased with it. Yet I wanted to try out something different (now thinking about it, I don't know what the hell has gotten into me...). I tried different foundations (highend / lowend; powder, cream, liquid) but most of them broke me out or vanished throughout the day. I finally convinced myself to go back and purchased Revlon CS a few days ago and I am finally off my foundation-hassle! CS has an AMAZING staying power! I put it on around 7am and get back home 8pm. So my foundation has to last all day and it does!! Yesterday I've been to the gym after work, which I think is the worst for any foundation. I usually sweat so much, I probably look like I just got under the shower... But after my gymsession - back home - my makeup looked FABULOUS! I'm serious, it's amazing!! As for the smell I don't really care coz after you buff it in the smell's gone. Only thing that bugs me is the missing pump! I am sure Revlon knows about the problem. If there works ANY woman at all, they surely know! My face stays matt for the longest time. I barely have to blot once a day. I hope they will never ever discontinue this product, otherwise I may have to burn down their headquarters. Overall great, great product! Love it!! Almost forgot. Just for reference, I don't wear primer and/or setting spray and I have an oily T-zone.
