Undecided

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

Im undecided about this primer. It does help control shine/oil (my skin is extremely oily), somedays longer than the 8hrs it claims n somedays i start to notice that heavy/oily feel on my face around 5/6 hr but makeup still looks good (not sure how it will hold up with summer weather, ive only been using this for about three weeks, what few nice days there was it did decently). My pores n "expression" lines around my mouth i swear are getting smaller n smaller with each use. As far as application..., im still figuring that out. It seems some days it goes on nice and somedays it tends to get .. how do i explain.?. Crumbly, especialy if i rub it in too too much. I hate that. But for the sake that it is helping with pores n that expression line, i will repurchase another travel size for now.

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

        I didn't really enjoy this product. I heard a lot of awesome reviews about it so thought I'd give it a try. It felt greasy and my face seemed to get oily and my foundation sat on top of my skin and didn't melt into my skin. Maybe do someone with Norma skin but my skin is normally on the dry side and for whatever reason it didn't work out for me.

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

            It goes on smooth, no smell, stays on all day. But I think the pore filler/blurring I am looking for just does not exist. I can still see my pores. I get makeup in my pores, especially on my nose, after I use this and OTHER pore minimizing primers too. But this is very soft and silky, not overly silicone feeling. I like that, but I just want all my pores GONE and I just don't think any product does what I am looking for.
