I love this stuff!! I received a sample in my box and loved it so much that I had to buy the full size. I don't wear a lot of makeup but this makes the little that Ido wear stay on all day!

My go to primer
Sampled

For a lot of years, I dealt with the bleeding eyeliner and eyeshadow issues. By the end of the day, gravity would have either started working on my makeup or it just wouldn't even show up anymore. Then in came Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer. It keeps my makeup looking nice and fresh and keeps it all in place. I definitely notice a big difference in the longevity of my makeup if I forget to put my primer on first.

I love this

I love this primer. It is one of my favorites. I love that is it light. It goes on so smooth. I don't even feel like I have any product on my face.

My favorite primer!

I've used other primers before but this one is my far the best! It made my foundation last all day long even through the brutal summer heat and humidity! I received this as a part of the Smash Box try it kit and I absolutely love it! I am planning on ordering the full-size soon!

My favorite.

Worth it. It does exactly what it says it will--makes my skin look like a beautifully touched up photo. I do wish it had SPF so I don't have to mix anything with it in my everyday routine.

Favorite!

I wasn't sure about the texture the first time I used this product... it feels so soft and almost a bit oily, but I love the powdery soft finish and the oil control it provides. It's really the most important step to makeup that stays put and fresh the entire day!

Great thing to use

It made me feel like it was repelling or absorbing the oils from my face. It seemed to reduce my oiliness and I did not get a huge breakout. I suggest this for oily skin people too!

Great product!

I love this primer! Comes out like gel but has a powdery feel. Always goes on even and doesn't clog my pores.
