Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Lid Primer

In the grand scheme of things, dealing with melting eye makeup is no worse than coping with a paper cut. That said, minor annoyances can be major distractions. This beige-tinted universal primer acts like a bandage by covering up fine lines and discoloration on and around your lids. At the same time, it works to prevent shadow from creasing and fading. So, while we can’t tell you how to avoid paper cuts (if you figure it out, let us know), this minor annoyance can quickly become a thing of the past.

It's ok...

This one always seems to dry out too fast on me... Probably halfway through use. It's ok at first. Would be so much better if they took Urban Decay's lead and switches from a bottle with a want to a squeeze tube.

great product.
Purchased

i really like this lid primer. the only reason i didn't give it 5 stars is because it doesn't last as long as i would like. however, it goes on light and smooth and really allows the eyeshadow a great base. i do like to wear primer only on "easy" days - and for that this doesn't do the trick. but then again, that's not its design!

Awesome Lid Primer
Purchased

This lid primer is excellent, it goes on smooth and is very light. Lasts all day, and a little goes a long way. Keeps eye shadow looking fresh all day, no creasing. Love it.

Very nice!

Stays on 24 hours +. Feels good and really makes the eyeshadow stand out and stay on.

First primer to work all day for me
Purchased

This will be a daily use product for me! This is first (tried Clinique and es da Lauder) lid primer that has actually worked! The price is similar to other brands. I think I have oily eyelids because I get a nasty crease normally but not with this product! I am so happy!

Can't be without it
Purchased

I had never used an lid primer before but after reading the reviews purchased this one. Now I can't go with out it. Perks up eyes immediately and evens small lines and redness. Sometimes I use without an eyeshadow to even out skin tone.

It's Great!

I first used this product with the Smashbox Try It Kit and I loved it. My eye shadow stayed put through the whole day and it wasn't greasy and didn't crease at all. It's just a bit difficult to remove your makeup at the end of the night!

Fan!

I like any primer for eyes but this has been my favorite. This lid primer is creamy and blends well. It's very light on the lids. I recommend you give it a try.
