    Comments about Smashbox Travel Size Photo Finish Foundation Primer:

    I have very oily skin and my makeup tends to crease in my laugh lines. As long as I wear this under my makeup I know I never have to worry about oil or creases. A dab will do ya, a little goes a long way and you will wonder how you ever lived without this. I've tried nearly every primer but nothing compares!

          It's lightweight and a smooth finish.

              This primer is a must before you apply your makeup. Smooths out your skin very well after applying your makeup over it. Never greasy or oily looking.

                    This is great primer. It hides pores so well that I sometimes use it alone, without makeup. When my face is just washed, my skin is shiny, and this primer gives it a nice, shine-free finish without looking dried out.

                      I'm on the fence about this product, that's why I bought the travel size. I had tried it a few years ago and I can't say it did well on me. The thing is when I gave it to my mom, it worked fantastically! She wore it at a party that got rained out and her make-up stayed flawless. I would say, buy the travel size and test it out on your skin type before you buy the bigger size. Also, it's a little on the wet side when it first comes out, I'm guessing you put it on with a cotton ball? Maybe that was a dumb question but I am pretty clueless on make-up. You have to apply it fast because it dries quickly but once it does, it makes your face really smooth. It's kind of like magic! Better than magic, SCIENCE!

                                  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.
