I got this as a sample and then went and bought the full size primer water. I use this as a setting spray on my over-50 skin. I have combination skin and this does not cause my skin to break out. I definitely notice a difference when I use this to set my powder and my eye shadow. Yes, I use this on my eye area. I close my eyes and give them a quick spritz with this because I notice it keeps the …Read more

I got a little bottle as a sample from Sephora a couple of months ago and use it every now and then. I’m about 3/4 through the small bottle.

To me, this is just glorified water. I tried this out before makeup, after makeup, both, and I didn’t see any discernible difference every time. Since then, I just use it to spray on my RT makeup sponge to dampen it before applying foundation …

I used this solely as a setting spray and I think that's why it kind of fell flat for me. It did a decent job of "melting down" my powder products but did nothing for the longevity of my makeup. It leaves a dewy finish and has a good spray mechanism -- mist, not spritz -- but there ends my praise for it. Glad I got this at a hefty discount.

This is fine, but I definitely don't think it's worth the price. Granted, I haven't tried using it as a "primer" because that seems ridiculous to me. How is water in spray form supposed to prime your skin? Maybe if it was at least hydrating for dry girls, or oil absorbing for oily girls, or magically filled in your pores for the large pore ladies....
But this is …

I haven't tried this as a traditional primer, instead use it as a setting spray. I still have oily skin at my age along with fine lines and wrinkles and pores and broken capillaries - but I don't like to look "made up." Powder foundations look chalky and dry and after trying what seems like every liquid foundation in the universe, I haven't found one compatible with my …Read more

This is a very light primer. But I prefer a lotion based or gel based one that does the job better. This primer doesn’t hold makeup very well, if I perspire a little around the nose and use a tissue to lightly absorb, the foundation moves. Also I hate waiting for the primer to dry on my face. It’s expensive but lasts you very Long. Won’t repurchase

This works great for dry sensitive skin!
I tried this on a whim and I love it! I have almost finished a full size bottle - it cost 37 dollars but it has lasted 6mths with daily use and I spritz at least 4 or 5 pumps on my face each time. Plus I still have about 2 oz. Left in the bottle. So I would say it's a good value.
I have used it over stick foundation, powder foundation, and …

I honestly didn’t think I’d like this but I do. It’s light and still effective. The only other Smashbox primer I’ve liked so far is the Primerizer, all of the other primers they have do not suit my skin at all. The primer water feels light and refreshing and leaves a soft finish on the skin, not sticky or tacky which I personally do not enjoy. Is it better than Too Faced HangoveRX 3-in-1 …Read more

Like other reviewers, I used this more as a setting spray than a primer. It's not the "hairspray for your face" kind of spray but just something to set powder, bring everything together, etc. (I viewed it like Mac Fix+). It's fine for that purpose. I don't really like the scent when first applied but it dissipates quickly. The mist is good -- not too strong and not too …Read more

I wanted to make my make up last as I'm not one to do frequent touch ups. However with all the layers of skincare and sunscreen I figured the last thing I needed on my skin was a layer of primer. So I was intrigued when I saw this water based spray, more so as I live in the humid tropics. Unfortunately it did nothing for me as a primer. It was better as a setting spray but even then I get …Read more
