Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Primer Oil

Running out of space on your vanity? Us too. That’s why we love when one product works just as well (if not better) than two. This blend of face oil and primer contains 15 essential and lipid-rich plant oils that deeply moisturize and nourish your skin for smooth foundation application. It absorbs quickly and never feels slick or greasy, plus it imparts a subtle dewy finish so your complexion (and your makeup) looks and feels good all day (in a study with 100 users, over 87% thought theirs did too!).

New essential for me
Sampled

I have problem skin & I don't like using anything with the word "oil" in the product name. However, this stuff is lightweight & works exactly as advertised. Make sure you let it dry all the way before applying make up or it won't work the way it should.

I would ABSOLUTELY buy this in full size. Great for priming thirsty skin and easily absorbed. No breakouts, no bumps!

Favorite Primer

This is my holy grail primer. Nothing keeps my makeup looking lustrous and freshly applied all day like this oil.

Just average

It feels a little strange to put oil on a clean face before putting make up on. But this is a lighter oil, it is a little hard to dab all over without it looking too greasy

One of my favorite primers!

I hadn't tried an oil based primer before but this one was so light and gave my foundation a radiant glow. Will definitely get the full size

Great for my older skin

I have used this and love it. I am glad to see it here. Regular primers don't give me enough hydration. It does give a shine to my face, but at my age it is welcome. I think it makes me look younger. I get compliments on my skin all the time so it must look okay. I use it everyday.
