      Comments about Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Eyeshadow Primer:

      Love this stuff. Its like super glue for eyeshadow. I baught this spacificaly for my bare minerals bare senuals eye palette. I have very oily eyelids and the stay dont stray primer i have did not help with keeping the colors from mudding together. This smashbox eye primer is perfect. The color last until i wash it off.
      Little does go a long way other wise it will bead a little bit like other smashbox primers. But as with anything, you learn hiw to apply and what wrks best. Oh and you have to atleast give it a good min to dry before applying any eyeshadow or there will be dragging n youll have to start over, and nobody wants that. But yes. Stuff is great n totaly worth it.

          Comments about Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Eyeshadow Primer:

          I love this primer. I received it as a free gift and it has lasted over a year. I use it with my urban decay makeup palette (sorry smashbox but UD has better eyeshadows) and it makes my eyeshadow last through 12 hour + hospital shifts,late night dates, and sweaty workouts. Also I feel that I don't need to apply as much eyeshadow because the primer helps bring out the eyeshadow's color. I never have issues with creasing and smudging and it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin and eyes. Removes easily with my Lancôme bifacial eye makeup remover and/or almay eye makeup remover without any harsh rubbing

            I've had a hard time finding any type of eye shadow primer, but this works GREAT!! My eye shadow stays all day, no creases, no touch ups! It's very easy to apply and take off at night. A little does go a long way! I would recommend this to anyone that has a problem with their eye shadow creasing/fading throughout the day.

                I've tried other shadow primers, but this is the best I've tried. It is remarkably light weight, very little product does the job, and it does what it promises, keeps shadow in perfect condition, no creasing, no fading, just perfect from morning until night.

                  Apply after foundation and before eye makeup. Color goes on brighter and lasts all day. Love this formula and the tube it comes in. I've used other brands that come with an applicator and I dislike it.
