Best priner ever!!

This right here is my HG primer!! It's hands down the best I have used for my oily skin. It's very smooth and silky, non runny and it leaves my skin very smooth and perfectly matte ready for the foundation. I love it!

You can always rely on Smashbox when it comes to makeup. Applying this before my foundation makes a huge difference in how everything jives together. Using this primer helps my foundation to go on flawlessly, and helps blush to really stay on all day. I will for sure continue to use this product or another variation of Smashbox's primers in the future.

This was the first foundation primer I ever used, and as many beauty junkies are prone to do, I stopped using it in lieu of trying other products. None of the other brands I've tried come close to this one. It goes on smoothly and stays put, and does what it's supposed to do: get your foundation to glide on and stay put!

LOVE THIS PRIMER!

The Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer is AMAZING! I love it so much! It gives my skin a light coverage and it makes my makeup last much longer. I've even worn it alone and it gives my skin a smooth appearance.

Go to primer!

This has been my go to primer for years. I love the slick feeling of it when applied. My makeup holds all day with this. I have tried all different primers but this and the Laura mercier luminizing primer are my HG's.

Great primer

I didn't think there was anything that could smooth my pores, but THIS could! It works great with creamy foundation AND mineral makeup.

Use this everyday

Super excited I received this as a sample. I purchased the product in a full size and use it every day. Does not leave my face feeling oily. Gives it a smooth flawless finish.

Makes your makeup stay fresh!

I always put this on under my makeup whenever I am going to be out late. It really makes my makeup stay put and doesn't make my skin feel greasy.
