        Comments about Smashbox Travel Size Photo Finish Foundation Primer:

        I use this product as directed, as a primer, and for me it is literally the only one that works. I have super oily skin so I really don't need help from products in that area and this one is great. It doesn't add any extra oil and my makeup definitely lasts longer.

            Comments about Smashbox Travel Size Photo Finish Foundation Primer:

            I was really looking forward to using this product, based on all of the great reviews I have seen. However, when I used it, I noticed absolutely nothing positive. It made my forehead look like it had dry patches (which were not there before using the product) and I hated the way it felt.

            I also now have an extremely dry patch and bumps (looks like a rash) on the right side of my face, next to my nose.

            I should have never purchased this product.

              This is the only primer I feel makes a noticeable difference (not only do I notice but other people notice as well). It goes on silky and stays that way throughout the day. Although I am oily, this product still works amazingly. Another benefit is it does contain some antioxidants (that will remain effective as long as it's stored out of light).

                Comments about Smashbox Travel Size Photo Finish Foundation Primer:

                I use this as my base before applying any makeup. It goes on really smooth and is very lightweight. I used to wear just a powder foundation that didn't last the whole day, but I started using this and my makeup stayed fresh the entire day. It looked like I had just applyed it after 8 hours of work. And half the day I was sweating in front of an oven. It works great!

                      Got a sample of this in the Spring. It's rather pricy but a little goes a long way, so in the long run, not too bad. I have an oily nose with huge pores and dry patches around my eyes: especially in the winter. This evens it all out better than anything else I've ever used. Makes your foundation glide on. So far, I haven't found a negative. -:)

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