A few weeks ago I popped in to a Sephora to find new products to try. First, I did a once over on the store browsing each and every brand one by one saving some of my favorites for last. The first product that caught my eye was from Smashbox. It’s called 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer. And today, I am going to give you The Glam it, The Slam it and My Final Grade!
Since I have reviewed Smashbox products before, I won’t give you the beauty 411; instead, I am going to tell you why Smashbox is my beauty crush. They have innovative products that are highly pigmented with great staying power and all products are photo-shoot ready! And what girl doesn’t like a makeup that makes her selfie shine flawlessly? 🙂
Now that you have a better understanding on my beauty brand crush, let me share The Glam: This shadow primer keeps your regular dull boring eye shades from creasing and it makes the color look more vibrant. It’s able to withstand heat, humidity and fading over a 24 hour period (and I know because I tested it) LOL
I wore the primer on a recent trip to Miami and it helped my shadow stay in tact from early morning hours, beach time and to a very late night party. The weather was hot, steamy and humid all at once and my shadow lasted the entire day and night. Now don’t go judging how I kept on my shadow for the entire day and night…you’ve been there and done that too! I am not the only one. LOL But I digress…on to the slam!
The Slam: You have to use a pinch and let the primer dry. If you don’t, your eye shadow will be hard to blend. You have to wear it alone and not with a concealer. I tried it with my concealer and it smeared. My eyelids felt a little dry after I applied the primer 🙁
My Final Grade for the 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer by Smashbox is 4 out of 5 smooches…MUAH! I like that my eye shadow lasted all day long without looking oily and creasing in the hot Miami sun. I just wish that it would dry faster to avoid the wait on applying my shadow.
