Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Stick:

I didn't care for the roll over your face and pat application. I couldn't tell if I had it on appropriately or not. Didn't help my makeup stay put like I wanted. Does work well for oil and shine control until the end of my day when it kind of died, but you can re apply on top of makeup without a cakey feeling.

    Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Stick:

    I have been on the hunt for a mattifying face primer for months and I was so excited to try this but I am disappointed with how it worked. I have oily skin and noticed this did not last throughout the day. I use the Urban Decay All Nighter liquid foundation on top of this primer so DOUBLE the mattifying power and I still had an oily face at the end of the day. At first application of this, I absolutely loved it. It instantly blurs and mattifies the face. The next few hours it kept my face matte but after that, I saw shine coming through and by the end of the day my face was oily and a mess. I had to constantly blot throughout the day. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone with super oily skin, it won't hold up as promised.

        Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Stick:

        I had REALLY high hopes for this because my nose is out of control oily. Its pretty good, but doesnt last all day long. I am a teacher and by the end of the school day my nose is a little oily, but not as bad as it would be without it. I dont wear foundation so maybe that is why. I like it overall!

          Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Stick:

          this product disappointed me!!! I've been buying/trying/returning products that haven't worked on my oily t-zone and this one is no different. Unfortunately it only kept me matte about an hour or two after applying before turning into a slick mess, reapplying didn't help.

          Not good

          Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Stick:

          It's very easy to apply, but it doesn't work on oily skin at all. I could see the shine on my t-zone areas after 2 hours. I won't purchase this one again. Very disappointed with it!

            It's a great primer and keeps my skin looking matte. Also great as an oil blotter instead of buying the sheets.
