    Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer - Adjust:

    I purchased this as a recommendation of an Ulta employee. I have uneven, red skin. I wanted something for color correction and a primer. The employee said this product was the best. I have found no difference with color correction. Pores are somewhat smaller and works fine as a primer, but this product is advertised as color corrected. It didn't work for me. I have very fair skin.

                I've tried many different pigment primers for reddish blotchy skin. This is by far the best and worth the price. The tube lasts a long time since not as much is needed because of the smooth consistency of the product. Highly recommended​!

                It doesn't cover up that well and makes skin blotchy. I put this primer on once side of my face and then my 10$ Ulta matte primer on the other side of my face and noticed that the ulta primer I was using anyway in the first place is way better and smoother. It barely made a difference and wayy over priced for what it can barely do. It wouldn't even last that long as well and you need to use a lot to get around the whole face

                    Didn't find that it covered the redness as well as a drug store product. The drug store product I've been using was more coverage for less than half the price. It did feel like butter going on. Very smooth.

                      Meh. It's a decent primer but I saw no difference in the redness of my face and it also didn't appear to decrease fine lines. I bought this specifically to even out my skin tone as I'm pretty red due to having such fair skin and I didn't notice much of a difference. I probably wouldn't buy it again as I'm sure I can use a primer that does that same thing and is not as pricy. I'll possibly just switch to a decent green concelear and another primer after I use this bottle.

                      • Q:

                        I have combo/oily skin in spring and summer and combo dry in late fall and winter. I have some melasma and some redness on my nose and upper cheekbones. I currently have a mini size of the color correct adjust primer and just saw that there is a apricot color correct primer as well. Which would be better suited for my issues? I like the adjust primer but not so sure it covers the slight redness on nose and cheeks. It does do better than most I have tried in the past. Thanks for any help you can provide.
