        Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer - Blend:

        I was shocked the first time I applied this primer, it seems to immediately convert from a liquid to a powder on the skin. The texture is so luxurious and smooth, and it truly evens out the skin tone. It leaves behind ZERO oily residue like other primers I've used, makes my skin feel truly prepped for foundation.

              I love Smashbox primers! This was my first time buying the correcting primer. I don't notice any difference between the correcting and standard primer though.

                      Yes, all of Smashbox's Photo Finish formulas help to lessen the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores! This primer has the added benefit of neutralizing discoloration with its apricot tint. :-)

                    My skin is red on my cheeks, chin and under my chin. Will this reduce the redness? Also, makeup never stays on my skin. Will this help this as well?
