Teaching an old dog new tricks.

smashbox.jpgIsn’t it funny how hard it is to break habits? Like teaching my golden retriever not to jump on the couch, cutting down from four Diet Cokes a day to one, getting my hubby to stop leaving his boxers on the bedroom floor or stopping myself from saying “like” and “you know” WAY too much!  I know we’re creatures of habit and all but sometimes it’s just plain annoying how long it takes to change. That is unless you discover something so wonderful, perfect and life-altering that you instantly succumb to it’s powers and make it a brand new habit.  It happened to me last week, when I finally took a chance on little travel size bottle of Smashbox Photo Finish that a guy at Sephora convinced me to buy a couple months ago. It has been sitting in my bathroom since then and I just told myself that my makeup routine was fine as it was and didn’t need another step. Well, last week I had a little bit of extra time on my hands and I decided to spice things up and try products that I hadn’t used yet like a Clinique eyeshadow palette and a lipgloss from Goldie.  Before I put on my foundation I remembered the Photo Finish primer and I was blown away! It is silky smooth, leaves your face prepped for applying your base by filling lines and mattifying (is that a word?) and is loaded with vitamins and anti-oxidants. Why didn’t I start using this sooner? It is pure scientific genius! They even have color correcting versions, I am going to try the green version for evening out redness once my original Photo Finish runs out.  I suggest you give this product try if you haven’t and break some habits by starting a new one along with me!

    You’ve convinced me! I too have eyed that product for awhile but I didn’t want to add another step to my makeup routine.
    Keeping the steps down to a mimimum lets me fool my self into beliveing I don’t need that much enhancement to look good and nothing is further from the truth
    Also I didn’t want to spend the money although I came close the other day when I saw that Sephora had a sample size for $8. but being cheap, I still resisted.
    Now after reading your review I absolutely HAVE to have it. Sephora is my first stop today and I’ll let you know how the product works on more “mature” skin.

    thx for the coment Barbara, I can’t wait to hear if it works for you! i would give the sample or travel size a try and then shell out the $40 for the full size if you love it like me!
