I recieved this as a part of my monthly makeup subscription and when I saw it, I thought wow this is super small. I never used to wear primer or never even thought to use it. I wanted to change my skincare and makeup regime so I thought hey why not try out the sample. I have big pores and combination skin. Well, I have to say that this smashbox primer is amazing! The small sample I got will last me a while since you don't need to glob your face with it. It makes your face have a matte look before you put on all your other makeup but I find it helped make my pores so much smaller. Also noticed that it helped make my makeup stay on longer thoughout the day! I wish I had used primer before!! I highly recommend, especially if you have large pores and you want to make them appear smaller!
I got a few samples of this primer with another purchase and have to say i am thoroughly impressed. I have some problems with pores and bumps in some areas on my face, and it smooths out everything without making it look plastered over. It didn't help as much with wrinkles and lines, but it may depend on the foundation so i'll have to try a few things.
It's a bit pricey but it's worth it for the results it gives.
Smashbox is 100% my favorite makeup company. This primer makes my face look perfect literally all day long until I was my face. So worth the price you pay.
I really like this primer. I originally received it as a sample and even though it was a tiny bottle, it has lasted me forever. I have pretty oily skin and have seen a serious improvement in the longevity of my make-up. I wear make-up everyday and have found that it is best to ~press the primer into your skin, do a light rub on your skin, and then let it dry for a bit before you apply foundation. This is a good time to sip your morning coffee and relax!
One of my favorite primers to date. Very lightweight and dries quickly. It leaves a smooth base for me to apply my makeup on. A little goes a long way so even the small size lasts a long time for me. It blurs imperfections nicely. Definitely recommend!
Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer in Light has got to be by far the best primer I have ever tried for mature skin that has a tendency to get oily in the T-Zone as the day wears on. It is Oil and Paraben Free and minimizes imperfections and absorbs natural oils to give a matte finish that lasts all day - love it! Light and refreshing to apply - you don't need to use a whole lot of product for effective primer. A little on the pricey side - but so worth it for the results!
I was never much of a primer person, but the girls at Sephora suggested I try one so I grabbed the SMASHBOX primer. I don't know how I used to wear foundation without primer before I absolutely love how smooth my makeup looks and it stays all day. Love love love it.
I decided to try this primer on a whim and it definitely paid off. This primer is the best I've used and I will continue to buy it. It leaves the skin feeling so silky and soft and is a perfect base for foundation. I have combination to oily skin and it can be quite acne prone at times and I find that this primer really helps distribute the oil where it's needed rather than just sitting on the t-zone.
Best primer I've tried so far. Much better than MAC primers. I love using the Smashbox PHOTO FINISH FOUNDATION PRIMER LIGHT because you only need to use such a small amount so the one tube lasts for a long time. Also, it is great for oil control - much more effective than other primers I've used in the past. Helps keep away the shine on my T-zone for longer.
