Comments about Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Eyeshadow Primer:

This product definitely primes the upper eye lid for shadows and keeps the color in place. It is disappointing in the way that when the tube is squeezed, too much product is pushed out - only to be wasted. The other con is that if you apply too much, your eyelids will crease and age you instantly. Please work on these two things Smashbox.

      Got a sample and then HAD to buy more. Really extends the life of eye shadows and doesn't dry out sensitive eyelid skin. Never thought I needed a shadow primer. I was wrong.

                    I have tried many of the top brands but this one is my favorite. A little goes a long way! It provides a nice smooth base for shadow. The only downside is the shadow will stay exactly where you put it, so don't make a mistake!

                          Hi There! Apply a small amount of 24 Hour Photo Finish Eyeshadow Primer with your fingertip and allow 60 seconds to dry. Then set it with a light dusting of an eyeshadow base.
