i was floored when i tried this one! :) why? because i read tons of reviews - good & bad.
(hence, my hesitation).
but then, when i bought my smashbox halo powder, it came with mini kabuki & photo finish sampler. so, i tried it!
it was great! so, i bought the full size bottle.
i think the technique is to apply ONLY a little.. maybe a pea size over your moisturized skin and then let it set in before applying your foundation or powder. you'll see how it glides on smoothly to your skin.. really smoothly.. and it allows a smooth make up application too..
cons: when you are using the pump bottle, you will hate it! because it won't come out halfway through. maybe, i'll just buy the tube type next time.
other than the poor packaging, i like it! :)
i prefer smashbox primer better than bare escentuals
