I'm trying to decide which to invest in! I've been using my clarins beauty flash balm and a smoothing one that I have a tester pot of and its ok, but I've heard a few rave on smashbox?

MAC prep and prime. Its what my make up artist used on my wedding day and I have used it ever since. No more "slippery" make up!

Sorry, should have said, Smashbox Photo Finish.

I have tried Smashbox Photo Finish Light, Barbara Daly and Benefit porefressional. Smashbox is my least favourite. It feels really heavy and greasy. Benefit is my favourite of the three. I like the finish of the Barbara Daly fbut find I need to use more of it than the other two. I won't be getting the Smashbox again after I've used this one up.

Thanks for all the replies! Looks like smashbox is a fave among a few. I use mac foundation at the moment (dregs!) so may ask for them to try that under a foundation for me.
Laura Mercier is a fave brand of mine but I've not tried her primer!

I'm recommending Lancome, takes a few years off me, and the foundation definitely lasts longer.
