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

      Love how smooth this product feels on my skin but even with my setting spray I keep getting spots on my face where the makeup looks spotty. I use a brush to apply my foundation and I have needed to use a sponge several times also to blend more after applying the foundation on top of this primer due to being able to see more of the problem areas I was hoping this would lighten.

        My sister bought this because she doesn't like using foundation, and prefers the way primers blur her skin without covering her too much. She was mad at me for talking her into getting it at first (it's pricy), and was in the middle of yelling at me when she tried it. Literally,
        "I cannot believe you made me buy this! I hate you–ohmygosh it's so soft..."
