    Never used eye primer before but was told this was the best and so far I love it! The eye shadow I use goes on smoother than I've seen and they blend beautifully and stay all day!

    Not the Best

    Comments about Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Eyeshadow Primer:

    I wasn't a fan at all of this primer. It was chunky and uncomfortable enough to where it was hard to apply any eye shadow.

        Got recommended this by an ulta employee. Big mistake! I usually wear urban decay eye primer (have been for years) and the lady just praised the smashbox primer was better. Well I tried it and left it on for a minute then tried to apply my shadow and my shadow would barely stick THEN tried to apply my urban decay 24/7 liner pencil and it just disappeared? Like my waterproof eyeliner WOULDNT STICK AT ALL! I RETURNED this the next day immediately and went back to my urban decay!

          I've only used this twice, but both times it made my eyeshadow clump and get hard on my lid. Even the second time, when I only used a ~very~ small amount, it caused hard flaky clumps. They're actually a bit painful on my eyelid. Would not buy again... Maybe another brand does better?

                  Comments about Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Eyeshadow Primer:

                  This primer had a number of issues for me. First, it was very cakey, and once dry, felt heavy on my lids. I also felt that it made the wrinkles and creases around my eyes much more prominent. Second, the packaging failed - and I ended up with half of it coating lots of other items in the same section of my make up box. One positive - it definitely lasts. It was still there at the end of every day - but I could always tell it was there all day.

                      Eyeshadow does not budge when I use this! A tiny bit goes a long way (one of the many reasons it's well worth the price). It really helps me get more pigment from my shadows without having to layer it on. It never leaves that tacky feel that some eyeshadow primers do, it feels so amazingly smooth as soon as I put my shadows on.
