Comments about Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Eyeshadow Primer:

This primer is excellent. Holds shadow alll day and I haven't had a single case of creasing. I also use this on my lips before a matte liquid lipstick. I naturally have fairly oily eyelids and have always had issues with creasing even with primer. This is the only primer that works for me! I'm only not a fan of trying to squeeze it out of the tube, it's hard to get a small enough amount but not too small.

Love it!

Comments about Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Eyeshadow Primer:

This is my go-to eye shadow primer. Seemed a little expensive, but an employee recommended it, so I tried it and have LOVED it ever since! Keeps my eye shadow in place the entire day, even when it's extremely hot outside. Would definitely recommend and worth the price!

      Comments about Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Eyeshadow Primer:

      This primer is my all time favorite eyeshadow primer! The eyeshadow stays all day and then some and makes the pigments in my shadows pop. The eyeshadow stays where I blend it all day and never smudges or creases. I love it and will purchase over and over again!

              No matter what eyeliners I use ( waterproof/ smudge proof) it would smudge under my eye during the day. Would this help prevent that? Trying to advoid raccoon eyes. Thanks. Please advise.

                Hi There! 24 Hour Photo finish Eye Shadow Primer is designed to be used on the eyelids and will prevent your eyeliner and eyeshadow from creasing and smudging. Apply it with your fingertip and wait 60 seconds for it to dry. Have fun!

              Should I wait for this to feel dry before applying shadow? It has a tacky/sticky feel even after the 30-60 second wait.

                A:

                This product is actually one that I personally use every day and swear by! When I first started using it, I did experience this same issue. I found that by using less product, it dried more quickly - and was just as effective at keeping my eye makeup in place all day. I'd suggest applying a very small amount at a time. I use less than a pea-size amount for both eyelids. Applying and blending it using a small, flat concealer brush also helps to ensure it goes on smoothly and evenly and helps it to dry more quickly. Once dry, proceed with eye makeup application. I hope these tips help! :-)

                Photo Finish Lid Primer (Item #: 2210936) features a color-correcting tint and light diffusing properties to help minimize the appearance of fine lines & discoloration on the eyelids. It can be worn alone or under shadow.

                This product applies invisibly (no tint) and is worn under shadow to lock it into place up to 24 hours. We hope these details help!
