Smashbox Testers, Primer + Palette

Let me start by saying I am a huge lover of the Benefit Porefessional so I find purchasing other primers extremely difficult, when I have already found one I love and get on with. Luckily I received excellent customer service at Boots a couple of weeks ago and the lady gave me two rather large testers. I explained how I had a beauty blog, yet found reviewing primers hard as I never buy them, so she kindly offered me these two. How could I say no? 
Unlike Benefits Porefessional the formula is clear and gives no coverage, it feels ever so slightly greasy at first touch but not really noticeable. On the skin it is very easy to spread across a lot of skin which I find a little bit goes a lot further than the porefessional does. It feels silky and leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth for before you apply your make-up. 
However I must admit there is a down side! I do find it doesn't help my foundation last as long as the porefessional does, so sadly I will not be purchasing this.
The customer assistant also gave me a really cool tester for the new Smashbox palette. I've never seen a tester like this for eye-shadows before, but it was really handy to test out! I have purchased this palette already as I am writing this post a couple of weeks after getting these testers so I could fully try them out. But I have already written out the review for the palette and it is a massive review, so check back on Monday to check that out!
I know quite a few people I know check out my blog and if you are local in Hertfordshire then I would highly recommend the Boots in St Albans, especially Lauren at the Smashbox counter. Best customer service that I have had in quite some time!
Check back on Monday if you are interested in seeing a full jam packed review on the Smashbox palette! and let me know in the comments some things I should pick up from Boots to try this month, as I had a few vouchers come through the door this morning!
