Hey everyone, it's the second SUNday!

Time to choose, and review, a product from my Sephora Sun Kit!

I choose...

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer!
(with dermaxyl complex)

I have never used a foundation primer before this kit. I always wanted to try one, but never thought it was worth the money. 

After using this, I still don't know if I would spend money for a foundation primer. When I applied this to my face, I thought it felt weird on my skin. But, I applied my makeup over it anyway, and I was impressed that a little goes along way with this product! 
At the end of the day, I think my makeup stayed on the same amount of time it would have, without the primer. 

I do however, like that this has SPF 15 in it, even though my foundation also has SPF included. You can't have too much protection! 

Sephora has a To Go size (.5oz) for $17, and a full size (1oz) for $42. I suggest to go to your favorite makeup store/counter, and ask them about the right primer for your skin, and maybe you can get a sample size to try out! 

Maybe I should try the other types of photo finish primers before giving up on this product completely. It might have been the dermaxyl complex that I didn't like, and honestly, I don't have wrinkles or huge pores to reduce!

Do you use a foundation primer? Which one is your favorite?
