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.

I used this as a primer under my makeup and it was pretty decent.

Liked it the first time I tried it
Sampled

I used it for the first time this morning in place of my usual separate primer and makeup setting spray. I could see me replacing both of them with this product. My only complaint is that the sample size I received in my box is so small to hold it's hard to pump it correctly. Wishing the bottle was taller or something so I could hold it better. But the product seems pretty good and I plan to use the entire sample and possibly buy the full size.

LOVE!!

I've never used a primer before. There are just so many different products out there that I do not know what to buy or what I need. I received this in my monthly box, gave it a shot, and I really love it! It kind of wakes me up in the morning and makes my skin feel really clean before applying make up. I've noticed my makeup lasting longer as well and it smells so fresh! Definitely buying the full size!!

Good primer/setter
Sampled

I used this when I did my makeup this morning- and I really liked how fresh it made my face feel before applying my makeup! I love when products have dual function, like how this can be a primer or setter! It’s a nice edition to my makeup routine and I’ll buy the full size product when I run out of the sample!

Awesome for everyday use

Bought this in a sample kit and I use it almost every day. I like to apply it to brushes before loading makeup. It makes it easier to apply and stays longer. Will buy again.
