    I have begun my makeup and this is the best for making eyeshadow pop! Without it, eyeshadow doesn't stay or doesn't have a nice bold pigment

    Not good for oily skin

    Comments about Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Eyeshadow Primer:

    This primer didn't work for me, and I have oily eyelids. My eyeshadow creased when I used this. I went back to using urban decay. I believe it's a great product for others though.

    I love this eye shadow primer. I tried urban decay before which was good but dried up
    after a while. I've been using Smashbox for sometime now and am very happy with the product. I will definitely buy it again.

      I use this product every time I wear eyeshadow. It doesn't matter if it's a natural makeup look, colorful eye or a dark smokey eye, this primer is bomb. It's super easy to apply I usually use my fingers and it doesn't crease! I personally think it's better than the urban decay potion primer too and if you have oily eyelids this is the primer for you!

          Comments about Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Eyeshadow Primer:

          Wow. I had no idea what I was missing out on until I bought this. I will never go back to using concealer as an eye shadow primer. This lasts all day and I didn't even have to reapply eye shadow at the end of the day (when going out after work). Do yourself a favor and purchase this. You won't regret it. I live in Houston and it's super humid and hot here. Virtually everything else will either clump of just come off from all the humidity and heat.

            This really made the pigments last all day long! Because of this, I'm finding my regular face wash doesn't take it off easily, so I have to use face wipes, too. But that's an easy fix "problem." Love it!

              • Q:

                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!

                  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!
