      The beauty associate highly recommended this primer but I was greatly disappointed. It cause me to break out and felt greasy. It didn't help my makeup stay all day either.

                  Seems to cause breakouts. But starts out as a nice matte finish. Covers redness well other than that.

                    Perfect primer for red toned skin under Smash Box CC cream or Halo Foundation. Best to apply with your fingers and smooth on after moisturizer. Love it!!

                    Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Adjust:

                    I have very oily and red skin. This primer helps conceal the redness. Good matte finish upon seconds on applying. Using this product allows my foundation to last 6 to 8 hours, depending on how hot/humid the day is.

                    It is a bit pricey but it serves its purpose well. There may be something equally as good or better out there for a lower price but I am too scared to experiment when this product works well for me.

                      I use the product daily under my foundation. It provides a smooth surface and requires less foundation for coverage. The only improvement would be how to get the product out of the tube when it reaches the end. I have cut the container in half and still have a weeks worth of product.

                        This primer is awesome for fair rosy skin types. It's very light and not greasy at all. It evens your skin tone and allows your foundation to go on like butter. The only downside is that it's expensive but I can't live without it.

                          I have oily skin. I'm worried that this product will be too greasy if I use it with my light moisturizer. Should I wear it with moisturizer or alone? Does it leave skin greasy feeling?
