Primer/ Corrector - Smashbox - Photo Finish Primer Water

I haven't tried this as a traditional primer, instead use it as a setting spray. I still have oily skin at my age along with fine lines and wrinkles and pores and broken capillaries - but I don't like to look "made up." Powder foundations look chalky and dry and after trying what seems like every liquid foundation in the universe, I haven't found one compatible with my …Read more

OMG y'all! After spending a bloody fortune trying everything from NYX to Dior I have found what - for now anyway - is my Holy Grail! A little background - I've had OILY skin from about age 11. At 55, it seems to finally be considering combo a better choice. I have texture, pores and broken caps on cheeks and nose (My blond-haired, blue-eyed self only got serious - at all - about …Read more

I believe I've finally found my HG! At 55 I still have oily skin w/ large pores, slightly textur-y surface and sun damage/broken capillaries. Oh and fine lines and a few wrinkles. Good times. I've used powders for years and as I've aged, I've become less happy with texture and coverage. I have tried all kinds of foundations, BBs, TMs - drugstore to quite spendy - and watched …Read more

Only 2 days in, but dare I say HG?! At first I feared this would just be too illuminating. But a dusting of Makeup Forever HD powder & my skin looks like I've given up hope on! Coverage is light, but just enough for smoothing & evening out tone. My skin looks dewy & fresh & I feel beautiful. I'd say at least 5 years are gone. Happy happy happy!

I recently came back to this stuff and have to wonder why I ever stopped... Love it. Not a miracle worker - what REALLY is??? But it does what it says it will do. And after coming back to it for about a week, my skin looks healthier and brighter than it did a week ago. I love the price and would happily pay department store rates for it if I had to.

BB Cream - Etude House - Etude House Precious Mineral All Day Strong BB Cream ] [DISCONTINUED]

I found this too chalky, grey and thick. I tried mixing with a tinted primer to thin it out and lift the colour. That worked just ok for me. It looked too much like makeup for my liking. I felt like Goldilocks trying different samplers, and got just right with Skin79 Gold label. It makes MY skin look great instead of covered in pancake batter. Not for me.

LOVE IT!!! I ordered a tube of Etude House Precious Minerals which did not work for me - thick, chalky, nope. I also ordered a sampler of Skin79 with the pink label, oriental gold, the shimmery one and this. I can work with all the Skin79s except the shimmery stuff - too much sparkle. But the gold label is HG for me. I ordered a full size tube after the first try. It took a bit of …Read more

Primers are crazy expensive, but with my oily skin I can't live without them! My very favorite is Too Faced, but it's spendy & I have to pack a lunch for the trip to get it. Because of that, my "everyday" primer has been the great, but pricey Smashbox. When I stumbled on the reviews for Lanacane here, I figured there was nothing to lose. I could not be happier! I still …Read more
