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.

Refreshing

I used this with every make up application. Make up wears longer and at the end of the day my skin is not left feeling dry out

Refreshing and seems to work
Sampled

Feels very refreshing when I spritz it on. Seems to work as advertised too - my makeup seems to stay on better. I usually feel like my face has fallen off by mid-day most of the time, but I definitely had makeup on at the end of the day when I used this.

Great Product

This is great for those who wear a lot of makeup. It would of been better had it came with instructions. i had no clue how to apply it. But it kept my eyeshadow in place for a long time.

Love everything Smashbox, never used a primer before, didn't see a need, broke down and tried it, was very happily surprised, makeup in this southern heat doesn't stay on long at all, this product lives up to its name

I have been a huge fan of Smashbox photo finish primer but after using the Primer water sample I received I will be using it instead! Leaves my face hydrated and also works as a primer and then sets my makeup! Nice product to have in the makeup bag!

New favorite product
Purchased

This has to be my favorite product yet from smashbox. It's wonderful to have something so easy and quick to apply. A little goes a long way so the price point is perfect. It can totally be used as a setting spray which I've never really tried before but it works great as long as you aim well and hold it far away from your face *8 inches at least*. It's become a daily product for me. My skin seems to be clearer with it as well. I've been told I look "radiant" lately from a few people and it has to be this product because it's usually when I have no other face/skin products on, just this and mascara with a little eyeshadow. Very happy with this purchase.

Refreshing and great product
Purchased

I love this product. I was a bit concerned it wouldnt work well because it was a spray but it feels so refreshing and great on. It holds my make up well and helps it last all day. Nice as a setting spray as well

Love this primer water
SampledPurchased

This works wonders! I love how my skin feels after I apply this primer water, I love how well my makeup stays in place, and I love that it doesn't leave my skin feeling dry. I'd definitely recommend purchasing this product
