      I just love this product and how it goes on so easily. Takes care of those lines on the upper lip. Doesn't have a horrible smell, so it is very easy to use and not get sick from it. I would buy this again and again. And it lasts forever.

          I have enjoyed using Photo Finish over my moisturizer. Or if I just want a light coverage I'll add a dab of loose powder. For a more dramatic full coverage look, I'll use as foundation primer...makes my look flawless.

            I have a super oily T-zone to begin with, on top of that I need to color my eyebrows in, at the end of the day, my forehead and eyebrows would look insanely greasy. Especially at the end of a 12 hour nursing shift. The Smashbox Primer helps control my oily skin and keep my makeup looking fresh with a constant matte finish instead of the oily, greasy look at the end of a work day. I love it. Wouldn't use anything else.

              Best primer! I use very little so it does last a long time which is important because it is a little expensive.

                  I like this product as a primer. I've only used it in winter months in colder weather and I don't think it will perform well in hot, humid summers. With that being said it is lightweight, applies smoothly and seems to do a good job of "holding" my foundation in place. I have normal/dry skin that is fair with red/pink undertones.

                  Sometimes it makes makeup feel heavier than needed, but my makeup goes on ultra smooth. Its a very give and take relationship. And when you're traveling, just roll with the punches anyways. It usual last all day/night or both if needed with hardly any touch up to my makeup. But I also use Urban Decay all night makeup setter.

                  I used this on my t-zone, where most of my pores are the most visible. It was a okay product for my face except it still made me shiny towards the end of the day. I did find another "style" of the photofinish that is better for my face though so all in all a decent brand and product.

                    Will this work as a primer for the whole face? And will it also help control oil particularly in areas such as the nose and lids?

                      A:

                      Photo Finish Foundation Primer should be applied all over the face for best results. It is not indicated for use on the eye area and is not recommended to be applied to the eyelids. This product is oil-free and does help to control excess oil.
