This is a great primer but I have also used other less expensive primers that work just as well. Not quite worth the price to me.

I don't think this did much to prolong the life of my foundation or change the way my skin looks. However, it makes the foundation glide on so much easier, where I can use half the amount because it spreads so easily. Its like silk. For me it is worth it just for that. I hate cakey foundation so being able to use less is important to me. Because it helps the foundation glide, the foundation is easier to blend & I don't have to pull at my skin to get it where I need it, which is also a huge plus to me.

You'll think it feels strange if you've never used a silicone primer.. But for women used to it it's ok. It feels smooth to me and actually sits on the surface of your skin, that's it's purpose. To keep foundation on and not settle into lines or cake. It creates a better canvas.

It's okay....I think it makes my foundation last longer. I'm not really sure lol. I bought the travel size and it has last me forever. I don't use it everyday only when I need my foundation to last forever (a night out on the town/clubbing).
Makes me break out in cystic zits. Too oily.

I was so put off by this product at first til I saw how my skin looked hours later- fabulous!... It applies slippery and almost *greasy* which was a con for me right away; but surprisingly, it "mattified" my skin creating a smooth canvas for my foundation! Some may not like the greasy feel but if you can look past that, it's definitely worth a shot!! My 2 cents :)

I heard pretty good reviews on the Photo Finish Primer and decided to try it out myself.. I got the travel size and LOVED it! It definitely feels like silk when applied. I've noticed my foundation does last longer (and some!) and goes on alot more smoothly. I plan on buying again but it is kinda pricey!!

I like the product, but it is expensive. It makes my skin feel and look great. It doesn't extend my foundation however, so I'll keep looking!

Although I know quite a few people who swear by this product, it is not for me. It does feel great against your skin, but to me, it doesnt seem to help keep foundation on longer. It feels like it does the opposite. It makes my skin very oily too, which is no fun. And the pump is lame, it always gets clogged.

This product did nothing for the life of my foundation. It was pretty much a useless expense. I wish I had read the reviews here before purchasing.

This review is for the original version, I have not tried the "light" and probably will not. I did not really care for this, despite all the hype it gets in the makeup world. It is very thick, even when only using a small amount. It made my normally very easy to blend foundation, VERY difficult to blend on top of this primer. After about 10 minutes of having it on, my skin began to itch horribly. I do not have sensitive skin, and have never had any problems with any skin products, until this one. Despite the itching, I did leave it on all day, and it did keep my foundation on all day, but did not work any better than any other primer I've used. I will stick with my Laura Mercier Foundation Primer instead, its lighter weight, and doesnt cause any problems.
