pleased leap Year Day!
Last year the Smashbox picture surface primer Water seem to take the makeup world by storm. all over I turned, I saw people publishing rave evaluations about it. I like facial mists so I was fascinated by one that declares to offer hydration as well as acts as a primer.
So in November, I redeemed some optimal points for it:
It typically costs $37 for 116ml bottle.
When I very first started utilizing this as part of job focus 10, I kept forgetting to utilize this before I used my makeup! I ended up utilizing it as a completing spray for a few weeks up until I lastly put it best in front of my foundation to ensure that I couldn’t disregard it.
Smashbox declares this spray will:
• Prime skin
• provide hydration
• offer sheer radiance
• packed with electrolytes to get up skin
• revitalize skin
I evaluated this primer water in a multitude of different ways:
1. As my skin prep very first step, before my serum as well as moisturizer
2. As a primer, after moisturizer as well as before foundation
3. As the “wetter” for my makeup sponge to apply my foundation (sorry I couldn’t believe of one more term for it)
4. As a completing spray, after foundation
I tried it with different foundations as well as BB creams. Honestly, I didn’t notice any type of considerable difference when I utilized this spray versus not utilizing it. perhaps it’s somewhat smoother looking? I’m not sure? The spray nozzle is truly good – offers a fine, even mist.
So what’s in this?
Water\Aqua\Eau, Butylene Glycol, Caffeine, Magnesium Chloride, Calcium Chloride, Sodium Sulfate, Potassium Nitrate , Potassium Phosphate, Polysorbate 80, diamond Powder, fragrance (Parfum), Limonene, Linalool, Citral , Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Benzoate.
Caffeine is an antioxidant as well as it’s likewise expected to assist with depuffing… there’s a lot of slip agents, minerals, as well as thickening ingredients… as well as OMG it includes diamond POWDER! You guys, no question this water is so pricey! I’m going to boil away the water as well as gather the diamond powder, y’all. Sorry for the snark however I was thoroughly dissatisfied by this product. I was truly hoping it would be a question product, a trick weapon, an ace in the hole – however unfortunately, it wasn’t. Also, it smells like Play-doh that’s gone bad.
It’s made in Canada – woot.
I comprehend why Smashbox would release this primer water, it’s to parlay their significant success with their original foundation primer; product line extension as well as whatnot. I just discover it funny that one of the declares about this product is that it’s silicone-free – essentially slamming their own primers which are packed with silicones (and silicones aren’t necessarily poor – just some people are sensitive to them, that’s all).
I had really originally arranged to do this evaluation two weeks ago, however I delayed it to ensure that I might provide this product a much more complete trial… however ultimately, I still did not get this product to work for me as it has for others! I’d suggest MAC Fix+ ($26 for 100ml) in location of this – it likewise includes caffeine as well as minerals however with the added benefit of glycerin. One essential component missing for me in the Smashbox primer Water is glycerin – to me, glycerin is what primes as well as hydrates the skin as well as assists makeup adhere much better (hence, all the raves about the Nivea Aftershave Balm as a primer).
This is exactly how much I utilized up in the past 6 weeks – because this is mainly water, I’ll just utilize this bottle up as a facial mist before my serum. I would not repurchase.
• Alcohol, silicone, oil- free
• fine mist nozzle
• Doesn’t make a difference for me
• Doesn’t prime or moisturize as claimed
• smells bad
• expensive of what it is
Stash worthiness: 3/10 (sorry Ingrid!)
