    Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Radiance with Hyaluronic Acid:

    I am literally obsessed with this primer, it is my go to! I don't really like silicon-feeling primers, and this is the complete opposite! It feels (for me) moisturizing when I put it on my face and gives me a natural glow and helps my foundation look more natural on me.

        Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Radiance with Hyaluronic Acid:

        I have dry/acne scarred skin so it's difficult to find a radiant primer that doesn't draw too much attention to my imperfections. This makes my dull and tired skin look like I got plenty of sleep and water even if I didn't. The product is not too shimmery and has a nice peachy tone. I wear this with and without makeup.

          Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Radiance with Hyaluronic Acid:

          I am 68 years old, and have never worn "make-up". My loose powder product was beginning to really define pores and minor age related wrinkles. I wanted a moisturizing "something" that would be gentle to my very sensitive skin and give me a little color, while reducing the large pores and fine lines.(I needed a miracle!!) Smashbox Primer is the answer to my prayers- I wear nothing else but the primer and eye shadow. Wonderful! Seriously, you need to try this stuff

                Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Radiance with Hyaluronic Acid:

                I've been using primer's for years, and i really wasn't sold on why you need one - i just had never had one that seemed to help at all ( aside from a few pore minimizer's) so i just didnt understand all the hype. Whenever I did pick one out the last one i would go to is "radiant" as my skin can get pretty dang oily - but this was sent to me in an ipsy bag so i figured might as well use it - And WOW - this primer does so much more for you than just making you look radiant - my face never gets oily for one, it does have this beautiful glowy effect as well - I noticed that it didn't matter which foundation i used, they ALL looked amazing. Even the drugstore foundations that I pretty much never use. As long as i put this on first I could have put on foundation from the dollar store and i think it would have been awesome too. I was not surprised to see that this contained hylauronic acid in it, since i've always had good experiences using that. Do yourself a favor and get this primer, it doesnt matter who you are or what skin type bc this primer is way more than just "radiant"

                        This is by far one of the better primers I've used. Although it looks like it adds color, it only naturally evens my skin tone and makes applying my foundation easier. It's creamy, but it doesn't leave a heavy feeling. Love it!
