    Comments about Smashbox Travel Size Photo Finish Foundation Primer:

    I never used primer before now because I didn't think it made a difference. Since using smashbox, I have noticed how much better my make up looks and it lasts so much longer now. My face looks great in pictures and my skin looks natural. Highly recommended!

      Comments about Smashbox Travel Size Photo Finish Foundation Primer:

      I used to use nyx photo finish primer but it was greasy and made my face oily. This primer is awesome. It goes on smooth and it didn't bother my sensitive skin. I use it with bare minerals bareskin serum foundation and they work great together! I highly recommend. Plus to save money i buy the travel size it's the same size as the nyx which lasted me months!

              I had received this sample through my Birchbox and at first didn't really get the hype. But I used it a few days in a row in the mornings before a long work day and my makeup stayed on like a champ. I dont use this everyday because of the price, but if I know it's going to be a long day or I'm going out after work I'll use it.

                Comments about Smashbox Travel Size Photo Finish Foundation Primer:

                Bought the travel size to test it out. It went on smoothly, but seemed to allow my makeup to slide off my face. I'd apply at 7:00 am and by 10:00 am break, my makeup was gone. It also seemed to accentuate the smaller wrinkles in my face, some that I hadn't ever noticed until I started using this product. I ended up returning it. :(

                  Comments about Smashbox Travel Size Photo Finish Foundation Primer:

                  I have tired for years to find a primer. Since I wear powder foundation, it's hard to find a primer that doesn't make the foundation look chalky. This one really works. You don't need a lot. It spreads evenly and smoothly. My foundation goes on without clumping up or giving the appearance of chalk. It is a bit pricy, but considering a little goes a long way, I think it's a good investment.

                    It is smooth, disguises my flaws, works great with my foundation, and stays fresh. I will buy the larger size, possibly with spf.

                      I use this primer every single day, and I absolutely love it! No complaints, my makeup looks smooth and even when I use it. At first I was a little concerned because it seemed a kinda thick and I was worried about my skin breaking out, but I've had no problems with it! Super happy with the product! :)

                          This primer is oil-free and silicone-based. It has a silky, weightless, gel-like texture.
