    Comments about Smashbox Travel Size Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light:

    I wear this primer everyday and love the way it makes my makeup last. On rush days, when I forget to put on primer, I notice that my makeup starts to separate and look funny around noon, but with the primer it lasts all day. Of course, I contribute this to more than just this primer, but I can give credit where its due!

    Great Primer!

    By xoveronicarose

    Comments about Smashbox Travel Size Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light:

    By far one of my top favorite foundation primers.
    I love the fact that this primer is formulated without parabens and is also fragrance free.
    It is water-based and oil-free so it pairs perfectly with my go to foundations at the moment: Too Faced Born This Way and Est�e Lauder Double Wear which are also water-based and oil-free.
    Often times people don't think that primer is important in their makeup routine, but if definitely is!
    Primer creates a barrier between your skin and foundation. It will help with the longevity of your foundation and also help prevent your foundation from oxidizing while still allowing your skin to breathe.
    Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light does all of this, plus makes my skin feel flawless!

            Comments about Smashbox Travel Size Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light:

            I have extremely oily skin, especially during the summer months. I was looking for a primer that would help combat my makeup moving and my skin getting shiny throughout the day. I was hoping this would be the product I was looking for, sadly it was not. The texture was nice though, and it made my makeup glide on effortlessly upon application.

            Comments about Smashbox Travel Size Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light:

            This product is not the same as the original version. It does not go on smooth like the original form. It's like any other cream. Not a primer.

            Looks great at first but doesn't prevent imperfections after an hour or two. Doesn't compare to Boots No7 photo fix. Good product for younger skin.

              Hello! My skin is oily for the most part. And as the day progresses my skin gets more oily so I was wondering should I still use this primer? And should I continue to use a hydrating primer even if my skin is oily?

                Hi There! As your skin becomes oily use the Pore Minimizing Primer for touch ups. It's a great way to mattify your skin throughout the day.
