I've only ever used the MAC but am thinking about trying Smashbox when my current bottle of Strobe cream runs out. Any thoughts/ experiences/ preferences among experienced makeup artists?

I LUUUUURve the smashbox photofinish primer it's awesome gives a beautifully smooth finish to the skin. A lot of top pros use it too.

I would also reccomend another good make called myface.cosmetics, they are a new costmeic range that has come over from the US, they are affordable prices and match any skin tones.

Smashbox photofinish is my kit must have, I also love Laura Mercier oil free primer if you tend to get oily skin.
