Smashbox Primer water reviewed!



I've been obsessed with facial mists ever since I purchased Mac fix+. I'm Oily skinned but I just can't get over how these guys work! One spray over your makeup just settles everything together and makes that cakey look go away.
I had some birthday money burning a hole in my pocket so I splurged and ordered my biggest mecca haul ever. Which was only five products. And only 3 out of the five have left me impressed. But I'll talk about that another time. I didn’t read any review before purchasing this. I just took the jump because its been sitting in my wish list from day one!

After the first spray I fell in love with the smell. It smells like aloe Vera! Which I'm obsessed with btw! I usually use one or two sprays and put a cream, pore filling primer underneath. This primer is designed do make product stick to your face. Not to fill in pores. After you've spritzed some on your face let it sit for about one minute until it goes tacky, Don't worry though. Its not an uncomfortable kind of tacky. You can only feel it with your fingers. Its what helps the makeup stay put.

I put it to the ultimate test and wore it for 7 hours! Here's some pics;

I wore this with NARS Sheer glow which probably wasn't a good combo for my oily skin! But after trialling with two other foundations (maybelline matte & poreless and Benefit oxygen wow) I've come to absolutely love this product! I spray it on before makeup, Before I blend in my concealer and after I set my base with powder! I actually think it's better than Mac fix+. Somehow the formula is a bit thicker and sprays evenly, compared to mac fix + which seems to leave large water spots on my face! 

I'll defintiely be repurchasing this when its run out! You can purchase it from MECCA for $46aud!
