              This is the best primer I've used. It's great for overall coverage under foundation OR by itself with no make up. I have a naturally shiny face, this definitely helps to tone it down a notch.

                Comments about Smashbox Travel Size Photo Finish Foundation Primer Pore Minimizing:

                I do not like how it applies. It does not stay smooth. I feel it balling up as I spread it. So far I have only used it outside of my tzone. Makeup I am currently using over it is Dermablend with a foundation brush. I will need to try it on my tzone to know more but I am not motivated to try since it balls up and does not feel as smooth as the Benefit one in the minty green tube. For the price of Smashbox I would try a drugstore primer. YouTube women recommend Smashbox primer but I am not seeing the value.

                    I have larger pores as I am getting older, and this primer is perfect for
                    Oily skin also. My pores almost disappear, and makeup goes on so much better!

                        The Pore Minimizing Photo Finish Foundation Primer is oil-free and formulated for all skin types. Smashbox Cosmetics does not test for or claim that this product is noncomedogenic (non-pore clogging). We hope this info helps!
