Photo Finish Foundation Primer
Rated 5 out of 5 by mc24 from Amazing product. I received this primer as a sample, I won't lie I was hesitant at first to try this product because I didn't know how it would set with my skin but when I finally gave it a try.. Oh my gosh, I fell in love. You only need a little, blends well, it glides on smoothly and my biggest concern was the texture. I didn't know how well it would set with my skin and boy was I wrong. It was actually the opposite, So gentle on my skin that I could barely feel it. I've always used urban decay and boots no7 photo fix but never got the results i was actually looking for. I'm so grateful that I got this as a sample. I will be purchasing this product and referring it to my friends.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jenerd from It's alright This primer used to be my all time favourite. Now, however, I'm not so sold on it. As I have gotten older, my skin has started to become more oily, and even though this product was recommended for someone like me with combination skin, I have mixed reviews. I love how smoothly the product glides on my skin, and you get a lot of coverage for only a little product, but I've noticed some separation on my skin with my foundation, and I feel like it's the primer that's having a bad reaction to my skin as it gets oilier throughout the day. I feel like it may be a better product for someone who has dry to normal skin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JillianG from Photo Finish Smashbox Primer- Worth the hype? First I just want to preface this review by saying I have fairly oily skin which may be why I wasn't a huge fan of this product. However silica is a main ingredient which is supposed to help keep oils at bay, but this product definitely doesn't, if anything after a few hours of wear, my foundation looks greasier than if I had no base at all. I have young skin, so I'm not a good judge of what it can do for fine lines. The one thing the Photo Finish primer does a bang up job of is smoothing the skin. It makes your skin silky, so that foundation can just glide on, of course if you're oily like me, watch out as it'll probably want to glide off in 3-4 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Atlantis from Will buy it again and again!! Smashbox photo finish primer was introduced to me by my friend. At first I was skeptical about it. The reason behind this was my sensitive skin. My skin breaks out very easily. So I got a sample from the Shoppers Drug Mart at first because of my concern. The finish was super smooth and I like the texture a lot. The perfect consistency. The best was it did no harm to my skin. Even after using it for the whole week. My complexion was better, even and brighter. That result made me to buy it. Now I am on the second pack and trust me no breakouts and no complains at all. I have gotten my magic product... Smiles all the way!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by greatbeautybuys from Best primer I've tried so far I had been using a fairly inexpensive drugstore primer, but decided to get this because I got free shipping & bonus points. I had been wanting to try it for some time and am so glad I finally did! Your skin feels smooth as silk afterward and you don't need much for your whole face. My only complaint is that it seemed to separate a little bit, but when I shook the bottle and squeezed some out it was okay. My makeup looked smoother and went on easier and lasted longer - pair this with UD All Nighter and your makeup will last more or less forever. It does take a little extra effort to get your makeup off but that's to be expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LaurenChelseaT454213566 from Completely worth the cost! I just bought this foundation primer and am really loving it! At first I was hesitant to spend so much money on the a primer, but it was really worth it. You only need a very tiny amount to cover your face and it has saved me so much money in foundation. My makeup lasts all day and I don't have to worry about carrying my foundation with me to touch it up when I go out. I also bought the SmashBox Eyeshadow Primer (also great), but I sometimes just use a bit of the foundation primer on my eyelids and it works just fine! The primer feels a bit like silicone when you first touch it, but it doesn't feel tight or uncomfortable under your makeup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Simpledimple from The best primer! I came across with this product when I got a sample from my make up purchase since then I fell in love with it and I had to buy the full size product and an extra coz I'm afraid I'll ran out of it, lol. It made the application of my make up so smooth and blendable and very easy and last all day. If your looking for the best primer in the market. This is your guy!

Rated 2 out of 5 by kbagera from Nice feel, didn't prime While the feel of this product was quite alright (though very silicon-y, fair warning) I found it didn't do a better job than even my cheap drugstore primers...in fact my makeup looked and stayed better without the primer! (I did a half-face test on a night out, not the best face day I'll admit :P). It also was a little oily/heavy for my taste, I felt like it clogged my pores and I definitely broke out! But for someone with less sensitive skin or who likes a heavier primer, I can see this being a decent primer!
