Holds eye shadow and liner in place

    Comments about Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Eyeshadow Primer:

    I like Smashbox products and am a huge fan of their face primer. I really like this eye shadow primer for everyday use as it does hold shadow in place all day (8+ hours). I even use a tiny amount under my bottom lashes to help hold eyeliner in place longer. True, it does not really make colors "pop" - I use a light tinted primer when I want "pop" but for daily use, this one is good.

      I've tried many, many eye primers and this one is the best. Primer startes it will stay on for 24 hours but it will actually last until removed.

        I LOVE this product. I have oily eyelids and I've always had issues with my eyeshadow creasing about 1-2 hours after applying it. I immediately put this primer to the test by applying it, my eyeshadow, and going out to an afternoon concert in July in TN (read: very humid and hot). My eyeshadow faded just the tiniest bit, but it did not crease!! Absolutely worth the price!

        Comments about Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Eyeshadow Primer:

        Purchased this product only because my go to brand was out of stock....It was ok, not great. It definitely did not hold my shadow in place for 24hrs. I have oily eye lids, which is why I use primer. I found this product easy to apply and it did not cause any irritation (I am a contact lens wearer). It did not intensify the shades of my shadow at all, I wasn't looking for it to do so just stating that it didn't for those of you who like a primer that makes the shadow POP. It held fine, after initial application, but as the day went on you could almost see the primer losing the battle to the oil in my eye lids. It would start to melt. Melt is the best way I can describe the transformation....And as it would melt, it would clump on the outer edges of my eyes. By the end of my work day, I would have a clumpy, flakey mess on the outside of both eyes. Not to mention the creasing, but this (creasing) was the lesser of the 2 evils. I really didn't have any problem washing the product off, nor did it leave any redness etc after removal. A tube lasted me about 10 months - I used it just about every day. You only need a tiny bit, and it is easy to apply. Now that I have switched back to my go to brand, I notice that the Smashbox product made my eye lids a little dry. This is the 2nd primer from Smashbox that I have tried. While this product worked better than the face primer, I'm going to conclude that this line is simply not a good fit for me. Hopefully it works better for you than it has for me!

        Comments about Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Eyeshadow Primer:

        I wanted to try an eyeshadow primer, and saw that this one had some really good reviews on a web site I trust. It works best if you use just a small amount and warm it about 60 seconds between your fingers. Then apply, and let set a minute or so before applying eye shadow. I wore it to a special event, and was delighted with how it worked, and how much it helped my eyeshadow stay in place the whole evening and beyond.

        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.

        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!

                A:

                Hi There! The 24 Hour Photo Finish Eyeshadow Primer may not prevent your mascara from wearing off on your upper lid. You may want to try our Lash Primer instead. This will help your mascara wear better and longer.

              Is this product hypoallergenic? I was told at the store it is but I don't see any information stating this.
              Also, I have dry eyelids. Will this accentuate wrinkles when I wear eye shadow?

                Hi There! Smashbox does not make hypoallergenic claims. The 24 Hour Photofinish Eyeshadow Primer will not accentuate wrinkles, rather it helps to smooth and soften the appearance of the eyelid.
