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.

smashbox face primer spray

i love smashbox but i didnt like this spray primer, i prefer a liquid that i put on with my fingers plus i didnt think that this stuff
did anything and the sprayer didnt have a fine mist. maybe because the sample was so small i dont know. i prefer smashbox strobe cream.

This is a good primer. However I feel as if there’s a lot of room for improvement for this product in the future.

A refreshing mist. I like that it comes in spray form.

LOVE this!

I used this as a primer and OMG I'm in love! Just a few sprays on my face and all day my face felt so nice and firm! My foundation seemed to melt right into it on my face and it held all day. Toward the end of the day I got a tad dewy/shiny, but my make-up still looked great.

I rarely use foundation in the warm weather as it never stays in place ,but I also prefer a more natural look in the summer as my face tans easily,but I decided to try this out and can definitely say my make up stayed put all day ,so if you wear a lot of make up I would reccomend this product.I also love smashbox products they never disappoint.

This primer/setting spray is ok.
Sampled

I tried setting my makeup with this and I did two sprays but it made my mascara get wet under my eyes. My makeup looked too wet. I prefer my other setting sprays I use now over this one that doesn't mess with my makeup and make it look like some was wiped off.

I’ve used this product in the past and loved it! Sorry when it showed up in my box I was excited. I forgot what a light & silky primer it is. Your makeup just glides on afterwards & gives you I nice matte photo finish! Highly recommend this one.
