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.

Absolutely LOVE this primer/setting spray. I love that's water based. It's refreshing and helps my make up stay on longer and refreshes it right up later in the day when needed. Would definitely recommend.

Fresh Face!

This leaves my face so "happy" after taking the time to do my makeup! As most girls know, this step in our daily task can leave our face not feeling beautiful. But a spray of this can bring it back to life!

Great as a primer

This works great as a primer, however, it should not be reapplied throughout the day as the directions say. My makeup stayed in place great all day, except when I reapplied. It simply made everything run everywhere. I would highly recommended it as a primer only.

I like using this to seal my makeup in, its cool that it can be used as a primer or honestly as a setting spray.

Really good product

I love the feel of the mist and I can actually see that my makeup goes on another and stays on all day. This is a product that I will add to my daily routine.

Alright

I wanted to like this product, but I have to say it made me break out pretty bad. I used it once and I broke out after using it. I thought maybe it could be from something else, so I tried it again, and the same thing happened. I typically love Smashbox products, but it could just be my skin type and that's why it didn't work.

This has made its way into my collection as a holy grail product. The light scent and fine mist is perfection! I have repurchased several times!

I actually had the full size before I got the sample. Great for before and after you put your makeup on. I got several as presents.
