    I love Smashbox primer! I’d recommend reading reviews and ordering off Sephora’s website. I’ve found what I love through trial and error more than anything.

    I’m getting MAC, just because of experience. I’m unfortunately too broke to buy some, but I love using my momma’s when I visit home 🙂

    I’ve heard good things about Smashbox, but have never tried it.

    I agree with Christinayi’s point that with all brands, they have stronger products than other brands.

    I carry both of these brands (and makeup forever and lorac etc and i love cinema secrets!!!! lol). and all the brands mentioned in this thread are great!

    but I voted for smashbox above because I’ve been really realy impressed with all of my smashbox products lately and only satisfied with my new-er mac products even though there are pros and cons in both brands.  🙂

    i used to live between two states. PA and NJ. And Sephora was in nj and pa. Same distance from the house. So was ulta. I was spoiled. Now, I’m in Florida and I only have a tiny Sephora in jcpenny ! So bummed. But I agree there’s always an option to buy from their online store !!! I was recently in their tiny store. Tried tarte setting powder. And it impressed me because I had nothing on my face and this powder seemed to cover me up … But it did settle into my large pores and felt dry a bit. But u spritz some Josey’s new face spray. That has some Aragon in it… That looked nice. I’m thinking of purchasing these two products. Unless u would have a better suggestion. My skin is dry and it’s very humid in Florida. So things do slide off…’ My alge tinted moisturizer seems to make me look too shiny… Any suggestions for the products ? I also have a yucky dark circles 🙁 


    thank u in advance
