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

          I am EXTREMELY upset with myself. After spending tons of money on other primers while knowing this one existed the whole time, I continued to waste time and funds. One day I got so fed up with my cheaper primers and walked into Ulta and asked for a very good primer. The specialist suggested this wonderful primer and stated that it will be the best primer I have ever used. She was RIGHT!!! Flawless, lightweight, easy to apply. Smells good, long-lasting, effective. I literally screamed after applying my makeup. I work 9-hour days and my makeup lasts way beyond that. I have combination, acne-prone skin with some visible scarring, Kerry Washington complexion. This is the best primer I have ever used and it works wonders!!! It is worth every penny. A little goes a long way so the product amount in the tube is the perfect amount for the price. The tube is compact and light so it is easy to travel with. It goes on white at first but blends seamlessly with the skin once applied. I don't have to layer my foundation to correct my skin because it does it for me. It does not dry the skin. Instead, it leaves the skin looking healthy and moisturized. Please buy this!!!!!!!!! At least ask for a sample or borrow a friend's if you are still unsure. Trust me, you DO NOT want to look elsewhere for a primer!!!

                I love Smashbox Primers. I have used the Photo Finish, which is great, but I need something to help with dark spots as I am getting older. This primer actually makes my whole complexion look brighter. It didn't necessarily "cover" dark spots, just brightens and evens my overall complexion.

                  does this apricot tint (my complexion is very light) change the color of my complexion? I don't want to have to buy a lighter foundation than I normally use.

                    Hi There! We don't suggest using the the Color Correcting Primer - Blend under the eye. For dark circles we suggest our Color Correcting Stick in Peach or Orange for a finish that will last all day.
