Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Radiance Primer

Take the pressure off your foundation and let this primer do all the heavy lifting to give your skin an iridescent glow. This addition to the Photo Finish series of primers creates a perfect base for makeup application with 4,000 high-definition spheres that blur pores and fine lines while also illuminating your complexion with microfine amber and bronze pearls. Shea butter and hyaluronic acid provide all-day hydration so makeup won't flake and your skin will stay plump and smooth. Don't just take our word for it, though—in a study with 100 women, over 85% agreed.

Photo Finish was played out for me...I had found several primers that I liked better. Until this! I am OBSESSED with this Radience primer - it's perfect! I have oily skin and this stuff literally locks in the oil the minute you put it on. You can feel it working! Plus, it has a tint and a shine...and combined with the right foundation, it looks like you're sunkissed and not even wearing make-up. Smashbox won me back!

Primers are a girl’s best friend!

I love any primer and this one especially blended nicely into my pores and kept my makeup staying on all day. It works out well for me because I work in an office and if I’m not careful I get makeup on legal papers. This was a wonderful product in preventing that.

great, but too expensive
Sampled

Exactly what I need, and the sample lasts forever but it costs way too much. I wish it was more affordable as a genuinely loved it.

be cautious. i don't think it's worth it.

i received this in my box and i almost never use it. it's really glittery so it looks pretty weird if your foundation isn't full-coverage. i think this works best as a highlighter. and it definitely isn't worth $39 for the full thing for me.

This was nice to use in the summer, helped even out coloring on face from the sun. While being a light product at the same time.

Love it! ❤️

This is probably my favorite primer. It gives my face a glow that doesn’t look too fake. Definitely will be purchasing the larger one.

Ok, but dark

This was too dark for me to really sample accurately. I do like smashbox products though.

Best primer

I love this primer! It gives my skin such a nice glow and does a great job evening out my skin tone. The shimmer to it also lets it act as a highlighter as well

Love smashbox
Sampled

I love the brand Smashbox and I love their primers however I tend to go towards more Matte primers instead of the radiance type primers. This made my skin glow from the inside out and have a radiance all day long which I really liked. I didn’t have to use a whole lot of product either which was nice because it made my sample size last a lot longer. I would consider buying this product in the future

Worked well under my foundation to even out its application.
