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

        I didn't know how much a difference primer would make for my face! I chose the color correcting (green) to help minimize the amount of redness, and it is certainly worth the price. Not only does my make up stay on longer with a smooth finish, my skin looks like porcelain and not blotchy. Life saver!

          When using this product, I am able to see less redness in my cheeks. With this being said, my cheeks are not dramatically red on their own. I would like to be able to see more of a difference for the price. I would like for it to last a little longer. If I do not return, I am likely to either stop using since it's an added step without dramatically different results (yes, I'm lazy) or possibly purchase a less expensive version.

            Did not cover redness at all. Too expensive to not do what is advertised. Does smell nice and go on smoothly but isn't very noticeable.

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

              I've gone through about 3 primer's since I started my make-up obsession. This one has beat all three into the dirt. It's silky smooth, light, and blends AMAZINGLY. My face is rough from dry skin and redness and this primer makes my face feel so soft and smooth. And even after I washed my face it looked like my skin was healthier.

              As far as the color correcting, I did notice that my redness was ever so slightly less apparent after this primer had set but I could still see some redness coming through. I use a BB cream for light coverage instead of foundation so I don't expect it to go away completely but it definitely toned it down and evened me out.

              On a side note, I did notice that where usually my face is very dewy and shiny this primer gave a matte finish without drying out my face. I'm so so not used to having a matte look because my skin is so dry but it wasn't a bad thing! I just had to add some dew to my face.
