      It would work better if it didn't ball up. You can't seem to get it to smooth out

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

      I have had red skin for so long and have used many different primers and moisturizers with the green tint. Other products felt so heavy on my skin or left me with a bit of a green hue. This is the ONLY product that has left my skin feeling soft, light, and best of all not red or green. I was a little hesitant to make this purchase due to the price factor, but I would def buy this product again.

      I was unsure at first, but a light application over moisturizer and under foundation really covered red areas that foundation alone could not! I'll absolutely keep using this- my face looks great.

          I'm typically not a buyer of pricey face makeup, let alone face makeup at all. But I have issues with extremely red complexion. This product worked wonders with a very light application. I feel like I can leave the house with this and a little bit of eyeliner and mascara, feeling presentable to the world. I work with heat and ovens all day long, and it never dries up and flakes off or becomes greasy and runny. Most definitely worth the price.

          I apply this primer to my face after moisturizer and before foundation (powder).
          I know my makeup stays on all day with this primer. I have used other primers that do not go on a smooth nor do they last.

            I was so sure I would love this that I threw the box and the receipt away the way day..but it really does nothing for me. I don't usually buy pricey makeup or anything like this so I was really disappointed to see that it didn't work for me. It clings on to the dry areas on my cheeks and forehead and makes it look so much worse than it did before. Definitely not with the price at all. I haven't tried the other ones in this line but I'm not sure I even want to.

              My skin has a slightly red tone and this primer does nothing to correct the redness. The primer does help my makeup stay on but not as long as other brands such as urban decay.

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

                I like to blot this onto my t-zone and around my nose where my pores are largest and then blend it out so that it fills my problem spots but also gets an even coverage. When I first started using it I wasn't comfortable using it on it's own to cover redness without a foundation, but my skin is actually improving to the point that I do feel okay with just wearing this. Probably one of my top 3 beauty items I can't live without. It is really expensive, but like many prestige brands, a little goes a long way and you won't be running out anytime soon.
