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.

I am quite particular about primers, but I really like Smashbox finish radiance primer and the glow it gives to my face, will order again!

Not Just a Primer
Sampled

I use this primer as full face coverage. It leaves my skin with the ideal dewy complexion, and I don't want to cover that up! It goes on really smooth and my skin feels hydrated all day! I really love this product!

Just alright
Sampled

Finally trying this 5 months later. It works fine as a primer, but it’s not as smooth as other smashbox primers. I prefer the regular one. Also not a fan of the shimmer - I have fairly oily skin, so the shimmer just looks like oil to me. I won’t purchase, but I’ll use up the sample.

Use as a Highlighter
Sampled

I don't use foundation so instead of using this as a primer I use it as a highlighter and it's so pretty! The tint makes my tan skin look bronzed and it gives a really natural looking glow. A little goes a long way for me so I think it is great value.

I can't get used to primers. If you love primer it's probably for you. Not for me though.

Good product

I like wearing this primer because it seems to keep my make up on all day even when I go to the gym. It makes my foundation seem a lot smoother as well

I had to purchase this item that’s how much i loved the primer. I never used primers before but after trying this and I don’t use heavy foundation or makeup it really goes on and stays on nicely. And the tint is great

Awesome primer!
Sampled

I wear a rather light foundation and this seems to make it last all day! The primer adds extra hydration and leaves my face with a brighter look. It also hides those ugly pores on my nose. I highly recommend it!

Great color match
Sampled

The product did a great job matching my skin. Not sure what it was maybe too much sparkle but I prefer some other brands more that have more of a matte finish.

Works great, even on my oil-prone skin
Sampled

This radiance primer surprised me. I didn't think it would suit my oily skin. It blurred fine lines, filled pores, and blended my skin tone. I am hooked.
