    Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer:

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this eye primer. It's so much more than a primer - it reduces puffiness and crepiness in an instant. It also softens the look of my makeup. I put this on after my foundation and powder - yes, on top of those because while I need those products to keep the even look of the makeup on my face, I pat this on top to soften the drying look of the powder and blend everything together while "de-puffing" and softening all of the lines and crepiness. It has this awesome cooling effect and a very subtle luminosity that is not too much. It is also great on its own for days when I am makeup free. And, it's a great bedtime eye cream/treatment. Ladies, try this - it will become a "must have" in your beauty bag too!

          Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer:

          I was looking for an under eye primer/ concealer, a "YSL touche eclat" sort of product, and was drawn by the fact that this one has anti-aging properties and "peptides" in addition to reflective, pearly peachy color that could be worn on its own (I like a natural look). Unfortunately, this did not work well with my routine of serum and sunblock lotion, as it immediately pills and settles on fine lines that are not even visible had I not applied product down there (I'm in my late 20s)! The consistency is too thick, does not blend well, and has minimal light reflective properties. I regret purchasing this without having tried a sample first, don't waste your money!

            I am in deep. I literally can't leave my house without my under eye hydrating primer from Smashbox. Can be reapplied as needed. Evens out wrinkles, prevents creepiness and is great for a fresh, awake look. THIS product is the winner of my very own People's Choice Award! Can't, WON'T live without it.

                  I loved this product at first, but two weeks after using I had an allergic reaction. Woke up to my eye being swollen shut. I had just recently tried other new products and had to figure out which one was the problem. After not using this one for a week and then trying again, I once again woke up with a swollen shut eye. Yes, I do wash my face twice daily so nothing was left on my face overnight. I hate that I can't use this, but wanted to make others aware. I've used other Smashbox products with no problems.

                          From Smashbox Cosmetics:

                          Do you test on animals?
                          We don't test on animals, nor ask others to test on our behalf, except where required by law.

                          What countries require animal testing?
                          China, most notably, in addition to a few others that conduct testing by law of cosmetic products or ingredients to demonstrate safety.

                          Does Smashbox sell in any of these countries?
                          No.

                          What are we doing to end animal testing?
                          Our founders launched with a commitment to end animal testing, and that commitment remains. For instance, we only conduct or commission in vitro/human volunteer testing to show our products are safe, and we're part of the European Partnership for Alternatives to Animal Testing, among other efforts.

                        I wear a powder foundation due to my combination skin, I have been having a hard time with it "clumping" around my under eye because of my eye cream. Because of this my under eye looks a few shades darker than the rest of my face. Would this product be a good choice for me to use after my eye cream and before applying my foundation? I do not want to cancel out the effects of my eye cream but I want my skin to look even.
