Magic in a bottle!

I was a good girl in 07 and Santa brought me a bunch of Sephora gift cards so I have been like a kid in a candy store buying all the products I have been lusting over. One of my recent purchases was Smashbox photo finish primer and I love it. It leaves my skin looking flawless and helps hide my pores. I have also noticed my makeup goes on much smoother and stays put.

This is a must try product especially since it works with all your other makeup. I tried the original version but they have different shades to help even out skintones and imperfections.

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer

What it is:
Smashbox makeup artists use this product to create a perfect canvas for foundation application.

What it is formulated to do:
The silky blend of vitamins and antioxidants smoothes and perfects skin, while the unique formula helps to inhibit the destruction of collagen, and fills in fine lines and pores for a flawless finish.

What else you need to know:
Use after moisturizer and before foundation for complexion perfection. This skin-soothing blend of antioxidants, which can be worn alone or under foundation, works overtime to fill in fine lines and even out skin texture.

I recently fell in love with a sample of Cosmedicine’s MegaDose skin fortifying system. I headed to Sephora to check out the line but the $80 sticker price was a little much to swallow for the full size version of MegaDose especially right after the Holidays. I found this First Measures kit with a decent sized bottle of Megadose and 4 other products from their line and decided to try it.

The rest of the line is just as amazing as the MegaDose serum. The standouts in the kit for me is the eye cream with light diffusers and the Medi-Matte oil control lotion. This is a great intro to the Cosmedicine line and a more affordable way to try multiple products.
