I was surprised to see so many negative reviews of this product - I guess YMMV. In my experience, I use this product *by itself* as I don't wear foundation, but alone for me (or paired with powder) it does an amazing job of blurring my pores and evening my skin tone. I love it! It wears for a few hours before my oils seep through and I need to reapply if I want my skin to look really nice …Read more

Never again! This primer causes my foundation to cake up in my pores, creating the dreaded "orange peel" appearance, which only enhances the appearance of my pores. Then I have to spend quite a bit of time to undo that look. This primer is not only NOT worth the money, but also should be removed from the shelves to protect the public. Monistat Anti-chafe gel is a far better product for …Read more

I received a sample of all of Smashbox primers from Sephora. I was really excited to give this one a try. When I was in my 20s, the Smashbox Photo Finish Light was my holy grail primer. When I turned 40 Photo Finish light did nothing for my pores. I gave this a try and initially it really made my pores appear smaller. I use to have very oily skin in my 20s. Now that I am in my 40s, I have …Read more

Heard great things about it and with my extremely oily skin I’m down to try anything so I had some expectations about it. Sadly it didn’t live up to them.

Even with prepped skin it peels off my face I’ve tried multiple times with different bases and it still just peels of my face I have to pat it in if I want it to stay. Hard to rub in, it just lays ontop of my skin. it also clings to …

One of several different brands' primer samples I received which gave me a chance to compare them all and see which worked best. I used this some years back, long before I had any idea about silicones and how they were almost always the culprit behind my breakouts. I used Smashbox on a Friday evening just before applying makeup and heading out for the night. Repeated this on Saturday too. By …Read more

I've always used Clinique's Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfector in Invisible Light and it's been my holy grail of pore miimizing primers. I'll wait until Clinique has a good GWP and buy a couple. When I visited my local CCO last week they were having a 50% off sale so I decided to give the Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer a go because they were out of stock …Read more

It really helps the makeup cover the pores but it doesn't make them smaller. I think it lasts for hours and with my makeup(la roche posay for oil skin) my skin is smooth and looks nice and matte.
