    I usually bought Urban Decay eye primer, but my Ulta store was out of stock. I decided to give this primer a try and I'm never returning to Urban Decay!! Though this isn't tinted like I was looking for, I'm overall more satisfied with this product!

            Comments about Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Eyeshadow Primer:

            Disappointed with this product. I had high expectations from the reviews, and an employee had recommended this primer to me. I've attempted to use it a couple of times, but I always end up with creases. When I was at work, I checked my make up after 6 hours and my eyeshadow was all in the crease. I have dry skin and I rarely sweat at my workplace. I do like the texture of the cream and how it feels on my skin, but I expect the primer to keep my eyeshadow on at least 8 hours.

                  I have used this primer for over a year and absolutely love it. I have pretty oily skin, so normally eye shadows would not last. With this primer though, eyeshadow last all day.

                      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.

                      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.

                    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.
