Upon application, it looks great on the skin and feels light.
However, my makeup does not hold up well with a primer underneath. It slips around and does not last as long.
I also do not notice any improvement in the appearance or application of my foundation when I use this.
Maybe it is better for those with dry skin that need the extra slip but it's not a product for …

When I was in my 20s and 30s this was my holy grail primer. It smoothed out all the lines and pores and really helped to make a wonderful canvas to apply all makeup. But in my 20s and 30s I did not have alot of lines and I was so oily that I never used a moisturizer during the day, only this primer. This did make the makeup last throughout the day without blotting. When I turned 40s, this no …Read more

I have just started using primers. I wanted a product that makes make up last longer and look fresh until way into the evening. This primer has a very nice soft silky feel but unfortunately it does nothing to make up. It makes no difference on my skin, which is sensitive, prone to redness and acne.

This is a great product, my only one wish is that they returned it to having the more robust square plastic packaging that it had about 6 years ago as I am not totally convinced with the new packaging.
The product itself is still as good as ever as a base primer.

Well i read many reviews here and i will agree either you hate it or love it. Well for me i loved it, it moisturizes the skin, blurrs out perfections, did not break me out and you can also use it on eye area. And it does not have this silicon feeling which i hate. It perfectly moisturizes the skin and absorbs very quickly. I used it together with Estee Lauder Double Wear and the effect was simply …Read more

VERDICT: This is an AMAZING PRIMER!

FOR REFERENCE:
-I use the NARS Sheer Glow foundation. Makeup wear time on me remains same regardless if I use primer (any brand) or no primer.
-I have acne all year round, but dry skin in winter and oily in summer. So, I skip primer in winter. And, in summer I only wear primer to even out my exacerbated acne skin texture …

This is the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer in Light.
They have so many different Primers from the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer range that you can find your specific one!

The prize is a little expensive for me but it is an oil free primer and it's so soft and gentle to my skin!

Love it <3

I've been trying lots of primers lately and this is honestly the worst one that I've tried. It makes my makeup look worse than if I wore no primer at all AND it breaks me out. It does have some oil control, but not a lot. I would pass on this primer.
