Tester: Hispanic (Venezuelan) about Eva Longoria's complexion with good skin tone.
"This is another one of those products that I said "Now, why did this take so long!" when I heard I would be testing it. It's such a great idea. I personally love Smashbox primers, so I knew that the quality and innovation would be there in this product, and I was right!
This was perfect for setting the perfect canvas for my foundation and other makeup, while giving me a great, healthy tint similar to a tinted moisturizer, but with more of a bronzy look, which I love. It is very lightweight, non-greasy, and dried in seconds. Note: The color looks very dark brown in the bottle, but goes on much lighter and very naturally. The lasting power is fantastic - once I applied in the AM it lasted all day. The combination of the primer plus my foundation gave me a really lovely flawless look. I didn't experience any breakouts or oily/dry patches during the day. Another great feature of this primer is that it is very concentrated, so I only had to use a small amount each day which means that it will last a long time as well.
I had great results wearing it alone on the weekends, as well as under foundation for work and evening. In terms of the color that it gives, it make me look like I was slightly tan but not too orange or muddy - just a really nice light shade of rosy brown that looked very natural. The formula doesn't have orange, pink - or shimmer/glitter for that matter.
I found it was best to apply in the morning after cleansing and making sure my face was completely dry, and then a light layer of sunscreen, which I also let dry completely before putting the primer on.
This is a fantastic choice for very hot/humid weather and you want to still look put together with a nice flush of color. I will also have this in my cosmetic collection for the winter months when I want a bit more color. I've been wearing it everyday since I got it and this is a must have!" L.G.
