I never bought this, but I tried it at Sephora. So basically this is a review for people who are interested in the initial impressions. First off, the pump container is excellent. Its supposed to not have a straw thingy, but goes up from the bottom, so no air gets in. Which is good because it has Vit C, which should be in an airtight container. Anyway, its nothing like the original, which is a silicone gel, which is good because I think that one broke me out. This is a white cream, it reminded me of the oil-free primer by Laura Mercier. Its light, and not nearly as slippery as the original, dries pretty fast. Im personally not interested in spending $36 for 1oz of makeup primer (I dont feel the need for primers in general), but if I did, I would buy this. Basically I tested it only because I was curious, since I tried the original years ago. If the original didnt agree with your skin, this would probably suit you just fine.
I tried this product but found it to be inadequate. I love the package and the fact that its a pump, but aside from that I didnt notice a big difference in the staying power of my make-up. I use BE Minerals in Fairly Light and this stuff wasnt that great, so I dont plan on buying again. I might try Chanel's make-up base, read some good reviews on here about it.
This is the oil-free version of Smashbox's Photo Finish Primer. The texture is very light, and applies easily. It dries quickly, leaving my skin feeling extremely smooth without the slippery texture I used to get from the regular Photo Finish. I have been using this for a little over a month, and so far, I have not experienced any significant breakouts.
Photo Finish Light is a bit spendy at $36 for 1 oz, but it is more than worth it. When I run out, I will definitely repurchase.
