Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Minimize Pores Primer

Created in Smashbox Cosmetics’ Los Angeles photo studio to help makeup last longer and look great on set, this hard-working primer is just what we need to feel photo-ready. The non-drying formula absorbs oil to keep our skin looking and feeling smoother and shine-free for up to eight hours, plus it instantly reduces the appearance of visible pores and helps makeup last all day (based on a study with 99 users). Sweat and humidity-resistant, it even wears alone on bare skin for a blurred-out effect.

...really do not use primers. I did not use this product at all. I have it away... or maybe threw it out!

great primer
Sampled

This definitely didn't dry out my skin and let my makeup go on super smooth. I also liked using it without any makeup- makes my skin look even and fixes pore issues!

Not so great
Sampled

I love primers but I was disappointed in this. Good brand and all but I didn’t like the way it felt on my skin and didn’t really think it worked.

Worked Great!

I was super pleased with this product. I have tried others that have not covered my pores as well. The best part is the silky smooth finish!

not something I use

I have really sensitive skin and my face gets greasy quickly, so products like these I just feel make me feel more greasy and pores clogged, I don't use it
