As promised we are back with a battle of the primers blog. If you haven’t checked out our erborian review we recommend you check that out before reading this one but basically at the end of that blog we revealed one of our new series called ‘battle of the …’ and the product that is initiating this is primer!. Our main benchmarks are the smashbox primers,POREfessional,the hangover primer etc. but for this blog we are only gonna be talking about the POREfessional and smashbox photo finish vs. Erborian pink perfect creme. So let’s get started.
Of course we have a detailed review of the pink perfect creme as a separate blog so we won’t really go into the details but it’s a blurring primer that has 4 functions – instant blur, enhancing skin tone with a pearly glow,prepping your skin for makeup and of course visibly minimizing appearance of pores.
The renowned POREfessional primer and the whole porefessional range by benefit covers imperfections without settling into pores or clogging them. The weightless, long-wear formula instantly mattifies and controls excess surface oil for 8 hours, and contains mushroom extract known to reduce the appearance of pores. Moreover ,some of the product in the range come with POREfect – (see what i did there) shades and pore-blurring sponges in order for you to get that smooth finish.
Lastly, the famous smashbox photofinish primer. It’s a transparent ,gel-like primer that blurs skin and smoothes flaws. It has numerous benefits that help to achieve the perfect base to your makeup and most importantly, it comes in more than 12 different variations to suit your primer requirements perfectly.
