    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.

    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!

    I like it but at the same time for some reason it felt alsmost oily but if I am right this is the one that doesn't have oil in it. ( I am not 100% on that though). Anyways I did find that it makes my skin look even once my makeup is on but I just can't get over the feeling of putting it on.

    I have been a huge fan of Smashbox's Photo Finish Primer for years and years.....like so many other's out there, I have remained a repeat customer because it works!

    I decided to try Photo Finish Light, because my only teeny tiny beef with the original version, is that it can be heavy feeling at times. The light version of Photo Finish Primer is oil free....bonus for people with sensitive skin like me!

    I am finding that the results with the Light version are exactly the same as the original, but I am noticing a lot less shine in the afternoon with this oil free version. I am also more inclined to just use it all on it's own to help even out a natural face.

    I will continue to purchase the Light version....the fact that it's oil free is working wonders on evening out my complexion without that heavier feeling I was getting from the original primer. I would recommend Photo Finish Light for anyone with a sensitive complexion and or oily skin issues.
