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 love this product. It lays down a nice primer and I also like to spray during the day. Love it!

Amazing product

I use it as a setting spray, and it is the very best setting spray I've tried. I can put it on after I do my makeup, and if I have an especially long day, for me that's 18 hrs sometimes, it stays the whole time. Anything that sets my brows for 18+hrs is the product I need forever!

So disappointed):

I really enjoy this brand but this primer has done nothing for me. I've used it with 5 different foundations over time and I've never seen any difference in the saying power of my make up ):

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

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.
