    This product is great! It has a slight shimmer when you apply it but you don't see that after it dries and add facial powder. It really helped make the crow's feet disappear!

        Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer:

        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.

            This stuff is just awesome!! I have repurchased it more than any other product I have ever used. It will make any/every concealer look better and last longer. Adds brightness, helps to keep concealer from settling into lines. If you have aging eyes, it's a MUST.

                  I've tried so many eye creams with meh results. This one is incredibly hydrating and smoothing on your skin. I shouldn't be surprised, since Smashbox is the queen of primers. I can't really say the brightening effect is that great, since medium coverage foundation negates any change in tone/color. But my under eyes are super soft and the fine lines are reduced, so I will buy again for that purpose alone!

                      great results. I thought it was too light in texture when I first bought it but now I realize that it needs to be light in feeling so that it doesn't crease or make your eyes look older than they are.

                          Hi There! Yes, you can use the Hydrating Under Eye Primer alone. It's like 7 hours of sleep in a tube. It will leave your under eye looking refreshed and brightened.

I currently use my face moisturizer, then my smashbox radiance foundation primer or the urban decay self adjusting face primer (whatever I'm feelin that day), then the IT bye bye under eye concealer, then am i supposed to put this under my eye after my concealer but before liquid foundation... or after my liquid foundation? Thanks!

                          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.
