Primer + moisturizer in one! It delivers 24-hour hydration plus powerful primer benefits in the lightest possible texture.

Primerizer instantly increases moisture by 127% and preps skin for makeup in one step. The non-greasy, quick-dry formula sets in seconds, acting as a makeup magnet that locks on foundation and makes it last. It plumps and moisturizes with niacinamide (which improves skin's vitality and barrier repair) and hyaluronic acid (a molecule that holds water within the skin to prevent moisture loss). Primerizer also smoothes skin, softens dry fine lines and stops makeup from settling into pores.

  • 97% said it feels lightweight
  • 87% said skin felt instantly hydrated

Makes my foundation look so much better.

By Joselyn

Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer:

I use the new Bare Minerals Bare Pro liquid foundation which has a matte finish and was a little too dry for me. This primer transformed they way it looked. You could even mix in with your foundation. It's a splurge but I think it's worth it.

        After seeing all of the reviews and buzz about this product, I knew I had to try it out. I have combo skin but it's especially dry in the mornings when I'm getting ready for work. LOVE this product because it moisturizes and primes and cuts down my getting ready time! Provides a smooth surface to add foundation to.

            When I first heard about this new primer, I was on the fence about getting because I have combination/oily skin. I thought that it wouldn't help or that it would make me more oily. BUT I was so happy that I decided to try it! I always had an the issue where foundation would not stay or look cakey especially on my nose and in between my eyebrows. This primer fixed that problem & more! Made my foundation go on smoothly as well. If you have normal or dry skin, you'll love it! If you have combination/oily, I highly recommend you try it!

                    I love this for daily use. It gives a great healthy glow. I also loved it on a wedding I did this past weekend. I hate bring multiple primers and moisturizers when doing event makeup. This helps to narrow down the products.

                        I love this stuff. There is just something about it that I can't quite put my finger on. You just have to try it for yourself to see what I mean. It is smooth and moisturizing but not oily at all. I actually mix a few drops of foundation into it on days I want lighter coverage and it is perfect.
