Smashbox VS Yves Saint Laurent



YSL recently released the Touché Eclat Blur Primer (£31.50) as pretty as it looks and however much the beautiful bottle and golden box tempts you, don't be fooled, after using both a lot I've realised that this YSL option is exactly the same as Smashbox's Photo Finish Primer (£25.00)

Both primers have the exact same texture, which is quite a thick liquid that can feel a little much on the face. The finish the primers give you, again is pretty much identical, I actually think the Smashbox primer leaves my skin smoother than the Yves Saint Laurent. 

They both have a slight scent, which isn't too overpowering but it's definitely more noticeable in the YSL option. 
They both work great with the same foundations and neither are too fantastic at hiding pores. 
They both sit the same on top of moisturiser, and take around three minutes to soak in.


So if you're after the YSL primer, save yourself five pounds and opt for the Smashbox option which is probably 1 advantage above the YSL.
The only downsides to the Smashbox primer are the cheap crappy looking packaging, but I suppose that's where that extra five pounds is in the Touché Eclat.
