First time ever using a primer as I never really understood the point, after using this and putting maybe half my face of foundation on I yelled at my husband "how have a lived this long without this!" It's amazing. And my make up lasted all day long, and when I removed my makeup my face was so soft and hydrated! IT DIDN'T DRY MY FACE! this is huge news. buy it!
This primer has a nice lightweight gel consistency that is very easy to apply. It creates a nice smooth surface on the skin, making make-up application effortless. It did help to minimize the appearance of my pores and extend the life my make-up. It also helped to keep my face from looking shiny. However, having dry skin, I wish this primer was more hydrating. I'm glad I was able to get several deluxe size samples as the price is steep.
Okay, once you get past the initial price of this primer it is amazing! The price through me a bit, but honestly its worth ever penny! First off it creates a beautiful finish and goes on so nicely. It literally lasts forever which is lovely too. Smashbox is my go to makeup company, saying this I have tried multiple other kinds of makeup. There is a very good reason this is the best. Absolutely, splurge and do something good for your skin!
I love this. It goes on smoothly and is not hard (the stuff itself, thus is basically a gel) like other primers. Definitely smooths out the wrinkles I may or may not have ;) Feels nice on the skin.
all i can say is WOW. The silky feel on my skin is unbelievable- seriously I couldnt believe it! It is so smooth and easy to apply foundation afterwarss!!
They have done it again.. I love the original primer but this light version being oil free is wonderful. Glides on and my pores disappear and now that my skin has changed with age this light version goes so well with and even without foundation
J'ai recu de Smashbox un échantillon du Photo Finish et je l'ai tout de suite beaucoup aimé. Ce produit ne contient pas d'huile et est merveilleuse sur les peau sensibles. Il est tres facile a appliqué et tres léger, donc nous n'avons pas l'impression d'avoir un masque. Un must a avoir en tout temps.
This is a great primer. I prefer it over the other primers that Smashbox makes.
It has a silky texture and goes on the skin smoothly.
Helps keep my makeup in place all night. A must have product for special occasions.
I have tried a lot of primers and smashbox is by far my favorite! You can't feel it when its on and it does exactly what it is supposed to do. This is a makeup MUST!
I purchased this primer with very high expectations, and it passed with average colours.
It creates a smooth canvas, and it helps with blending foundation and concealer, but I wasn't impressed with the longevity of the primer for the foundation.
I didn't notice a significant difference of the wear, but I do add it in my daily routine to ensure my makeup lasts all day!
