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.

Will never stray from this!

I love this product! I have been using this for years, I bought it before foundation primers were even a thing, and haven't strayed from it ever since. I'm super loyal to this product because it works really well and feels great! I love the kinda silky texture of this product when its applied to my face. Love, Love, Love this!

This product works perfectly - I use it when I am going out to clubs and know I will be getting a little sweaty, and my makeup doesn't budge
