Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Primer Water

With our jam-packed schedule, we appreciate any beauty product that can do double duty (and then some). Meet our new favorite multitasker: this priming and setting mist. The hydrating, superfine facial spray uses revitalizing electrolytes to leave your skin looking radiant as it creates a sheer canvas for makeup application and helps lock in makeup to give you a photo-ready finish. It absorbs ultrafast but still leaves your complexion feeling hydrated and refreshed—just ask the 102 users Smashbox Cosmetics surveyed: over 90% of them agreed. It’s everything you love about a primer in an extra light formula that’s free of silicone, alcohol, and oil.

Very nice product. Would consider purchasing this product in the future. Would make a great gift. I'm very picky but do like this.

Yes!

I do enjoy this product! It is very hydrating and helps my makeup stay fresh all day. It has helped with the "settling" of liquid foundations that I have noticed happening more.

Fantastic for Summer
Sampled

I use this spray right before foundation and it's amazing. I live in a VERY humid and hot climate and this feels like there is nothing on my skin. Perfect!

I use this every day

What I love most about this primer is that I don't feel like I need to choose between moisturizer and primer. It is quick and easy to apply and makes my face feel cool when most primers make me feel hot and sweaty.

versatile product

i absolutely love this product! i have combination skin and i'm recovering from moderate/severe cystic acne, and this is the only primer i've ever found that won't cause me to break out. it's not oily, and provides a good base for foundation that lasts all night (even through hours of sweaty dancing).

Good primer

I bought this product to see if it would be better than using a cream primer. I felt like it works better as a primer than a setting spray. I do have acne prone skin and I get oily in my tzone. It worked well with my skin, but I wasn't that impressed with the way it set my makeup. It didn't break me out and helped to keep my oil under control to a certain extent. The fact that it is silicone, alcohol and oil free is a plus!

pretty good

Although I didn't really see a difference in my make up's staying power, this spray is super refreshing! I use it along with another primer
