Where to buy:
The moment I saw this I knew I had to try it out to see if this is a drugstore version of the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water. The words “Primer Spray” pulled me in. Plus it is NYX and I love NYX products.
I sprayed this on my fresh clean face. The sprayer sucks. I am half tempted to pour this into an empty bottle of my Smashbox Primer Water. It doesn’t have a strong scent, it is light and fresh. It was easy to apply my foundation. I don’t think it makes it easier, it is the same. It didn’t make my skin smoother. I do think it helps lock my foundation in and keep my skin hydrated.
Is this a dupe for the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water? I think it is a good drugstore alternative. I wouldn’t say it is a definite dupe, but it is good, it’s from the drugstore and the price is great!
Feels nice and cooling on the skin. Gives the skin a nice hydrated look. Locks makeup in.
The sprayer sucks, it isn’t a super fine mist. I wouldn’t say it makes makeup application smoother, but either does the Smashbox Primer Water.
Pass or buy?
In my opinion I say buy. It is definitely a good drugstore alternative.
