Wow, what a disappointment! I had been eye-balling this stuff for some time but the price tag kept me from going for it. But the last time I was at Sephora, I found out I had enough "Insider" points for a free gift, so I chose a sample of this product.
I have broken blood vessels on the side of my nose, and it seems no matter what kind of concealer/foundation/whatever I use to cover it, it ends up settling in my pores after a couple of hours and looking terrible. So I thought this product would be the long-awaited solution. Sadly, no deal ... the foundation and concealer still settles in. And overall, I don't think this product did anything for me on any part of my face -- my foundation looks and wears exactly the same as it did before.
Such a shame! I've been happy with other Smashbox products but not this one.

Sorry, Smashbox, you don't go on my best list. This breaks me out like nobody's business. It's the silicone.

This is my first high end primer that I have used and I really like it. It fills in my pores great and I dont think that it is all that heavy feeling on my face. one con is that I HAVE TO wash my face at night. if I dont I do tend to get some clogged pores. But I should do that anyways lol. I am gonna keep trying other primers till I find the best one for me but so far this one is better than the other brand I was trying.

After reading most of the reviews for this product, I have decided that some of the ladies are selecting the wrong kind of primer for their own skin. I bought this for the older ladies such as myself with drier skin, and I like it very much. I have tried about every primer out there, and so far this one is the better of them all. It feels like silk on my skin, hides some of the ugly wrinkles somewhat (actually I have found that nothing, absolutely nothing hides wrinkles after a certain age ;-) The main thing I like about this primer is, it does not do the ball up thing like so many of the others. I use my moisture cream first, allow that to sink in, and then apply a thin layer of the primer. It works great! My makeup still looks fresh after a 9 hour shift. Lorac also is a great product, but you do not get as much for your money, and Lorac is kind of thin which allows too much to come out and then either apply too much, or waste it. So I chose Smashbox for my investment. So far...I have been very pleased with my spend. I think it is worth it.
Still loving this primer! I use it almost daily and it has yet to do the ball thing. Got to love that! It leaves my face so silky and smooth. Excellent choice, finally.
I apply Chanel day moisture first and then apply a dot or two around my face and gently smooth it on. Amazing results. My makeup looks great and last longer. After about 7 hours, I can tell my face is beginning to get that tired look and needs a touch up, but that is after working hard. Not bad for a primer, and a powder foundation on top.

Thick, silicone - like texture with no fragrance. I like the idea of this and it works well. It fills in wrinkles and pores practically disappear. It goops up on my foundation brushes though and after longterm use, I develop cystic pimples. Too bad, I thought this was a winner.

I love this primer! I've been using it since I was in my early twenties. I never put on make up without the primer. It leaves your skin feeling silky and make up (concealers, foundation, powder) applies easily.
I removed a lippie: when the product is nearly gone (about 25% left), it becomes harder to spread across the face. Therefore, I end up using more product than usual towards the end.

I liked it well enough just not enough to shell out the big bucks for it...did help my make up stay on longer but not like wow...just a little better..

It is a great primer...a little pricey but it still workd great when used accordantly. Make sure your moisturizer is dry before applying then apply to your face especially your nose, mouth and any other unsmooth area...WAIT for that to dry and then add your makeup....each drying time should be 15 mins apart if you want that flawless look.

For the first month I loved this product. It made my skin feel great and made my foundation go on amazing. Until about 2 weeks ago I started breaking out like crazy. I tried everything...then I quit using the Photo Finish and my face cleared up almost instantly.
Also, the packaging on this is horrible. You get about 3/4 of the way through it and it quits pumping. I took the handle of my m/u brushes and scraped it out.
