    Not my favorite

    By Morgan

    from Blue Springs

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

    I went in to Ulta to get either the original primer or the pore minimizing one. The girl working convinced me to get this one instead. I think it looks like a bad spray tan before covering it with foundation. It gives absolutely no radiance or dewy finish to my makeup. It's just a very average primer. I wish I would have gotten one of the others I went in to.

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

        The product in the beginning does give a very nice glow but as the day goes on it builds up on the skin and gets very oily (I have dry skin so I know it's not me). I am also extremely fair skinned so it did make me face a shade darker than the rest of me. I would not recommend to people with my skin tone.

        I love the way the product illuminates your skin but it makes my pores look unbelievably huge! I don't notice it making my foundation go on any smoother

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

          This is a nice product, but I didn't notice the "glow" that others have commented on. So far as being able to wear it alone, that might work on people with darker skin tones, but for someone with fair skin, it's best to just be used as a primer under makeup. I will probably go back to the original Smashbox Photo Finish primer when this is gone.

              This primer is a different formula from smashbox's original photo finish primer which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It's similar to Becca's backlight primer filter which I also love. I've been using it with urban decay's one and done, and so far it's the only primer that works well with it. Love it.

                  I thought this product was good, not great. This product has a very subtle, natural-looking effect. So, if that's what you're looking for, give it a try. But I was looking for something slightly more dramatic. I will continue to use the rest of the container, but probably wouldn't repurchase it.

                    I used to buy the old Smashbox Radiance primer before it was discontinued and I loved it. Is this the same formula?
