    Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer:

    So sorry that I put off buying this! I've been really annoyed by my primer drying out my lids and actually making my eyelids look WORSE. (I won't name them but over $20 a tube- ugh). The Smashbox rep suggested this one, but I wanted to really try it before buying another, so she did a quick eye make up look for me yesterday. It lasted ~forever~ with no smudging, creasing, dryness, crepeyness. I was in and out of doors all the rest of the day.

    She also let me see how it looks bare, before applying shadow, and I think this would be a very nice brightener for eyes when you want a basic liner and mascara look, or even with this alone give a lift to your look when pressed for time. Felt really smooth and silky. This one's worth the price! Will be buying soon.

      I use this as a base under my eye-shadow, but I use it with eyeliner for a quick put together look for the day.

          I wear this product alone. It evens out the lid and it gives you a well- rested look.

              I use this product every day. It looks great all by itself, if you want a natural look. It also makes an excellent base for eye shadow. With this base, the shadow lasts all day with no creases.

                      Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer:

                      As a licensed cosmetologist, I do lots of makeup application for clients. I have tried many brands and this Smashbox primer is the only one I trust for lids. Eyeshadows and liners stay in place for 24 hours (clients have explained after having fallen asleep before removing their makeup). The shadows appear vibrant and crease-free. My one piece of advice with this product is to make sure to apply the primer to an oil-free lid (freshly cleansed) and then to make sure and apply the eyeshadow within a few minutes of the primer for best results. Enjoy those immaculate eyes!

                          A:

                          Photo Finish Lid Primer features a color-correcting tint and light diffusing properties to help minimize the appearance of fine lines & discoloration on the eyelids. It can be worn alone or under shadow.

                          Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Eye Shadow Primer (Item #: 2268086) applies invisibly (no tint) and is worn under shadow to lock it into place up to 24 hours.

                          We hope these details help!
