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.

Smashbox photo finish is a great primer. So good, I just bought the full size. I noticed first off, I could just use it over my moisturizer and look amazing. Then using it as a primer with my makeup, the longevity of the makeup was amazing...will always use this product.

Nice results

I liked this primer, but don't know if it's worth the extra step to apply primer before my foundation.

Didn't like it

I didn't like it. It didn't go on good and it was deff not mixing with my makeup color. I would not buy it personally!

Heavy
SampledPurchased

This is a great primer for the winter months, but a bit heavy for summer months. I purchased the full size and use on cooler days.

I feel like you glow without it looking really makeup-py ! I’d buy it!

I expected more.

Definitely NOT an all over primer, but it does make my highlight last longer, wherever I apply. If I put it under my foundation, it doesn’t help highlight. If I put it over, my foundation lifts. It’s something you have to work with, or work without!

Just the right amount of glow
Sampled

I am always looking for primers that give my skin a bit more life. This is just the product. Light, doesn't clog pores, and brightens my skin.

Great under powder foundation
Sampled

I like to maintain a certain balance of glowy but not oily with my makeup. When I opt for a powder foundation, I find that this primer is perfect for keeping your skin glowing and not looking too matte with the powder.
