  • You can get it at ULTA too! If You don't have an ulta in your area you can order from ULTA online. You can use it with any foundation, but you can buy the primer, concealer, foundation, and the powder for $50 at ULTA!! I love them! I always buy the kit. Or you can just buy the primer! :)

  • I use smashbox foundation primer. Yes it does make a difference. I fills in all the cracks and holes in the skin so the foundation goes on smoother, more airbrushed looking. I get told I have beautiful skin, even though I have pouros red skin. As a make up artist I use it as a must. Don't leave home with it.

  • Smashbox isn't that exspensive and lasts longer.

  • I just saw a new ad yesterday and L'oreal and Covergirl have both come out with face primers at a lot cheaper price. I want to try them.
