Best Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Dupe: NYX Studio Perfect Photo Loving Primer

By the time this is posted I’ll already have had this product for a good month, so there should probably be a review coming in another month or so (since I schedule my post for weeeeeeeks ahead).

I was browsing around for a good primer after seeing that my preferred E.L.F. Primer was out of stock at my local Target. I decided just turn to my trusty Amazon and just order some from there. I ended up ordering some more raw black soap, some new headphones, and this primer:

I purchased the NYX Studio Perfect Photo-Loving Primer in Clear. It also comes in green to conceal redness and lavender to brighten the skin. Clear, like most other clear primers, is supposed to cover fine lines and pores.

Here are the claims made on the website:

Prepare your canvas with our silky primer. The Studio Perfect Primer formula is easily absorbed, creates a smooth surface for foundation, and ensures the longevity of your makeup.

Here are the ingredients:

Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Cyclopentasiloxane, Cyclohexasiloxane, Dimethicone, Silica, Phenoxyethanol. MAY CONTAIN / PEUT CONTENIR (+/-): Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Chromium Oxide Greens (CI 77288), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Ultramarines (CI 77007), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, 77492, 77499)

I’m excited to use this since it looks like it has roughly the same consistency of my E.L.F. Face Primer, and it is often compared to the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer ($13 vs. $36?? Yes.)

I’ll write a review for this after I use it for a couple of weeks!

Let me know what some of your favourite primers are!
