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

    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.

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

      I really like this primer and have used it daily for 2 years. It goes on smoothly and makes applying my foundation much easier. It is not too thick and has a matte finish. It helps to smooth over some lines, but doesn't really conceal pores. It does keep my makeup from sinking into my pores, though. The downside is that it does not really do anything for the redness. this is not ideal for me, as the redness on my face seems to have become more prominent over the past few months and I need something to help conceal it. Helps keep your makeup in place about 4-6 hours. I'd recommend to anyone who just needs light to medium coverage. I have recently switched as I am looking for something a little more concealing for my pores and redness, but I will always consider this my go-to if I am in a pinch.

        Another great Smashbox product. This is the primer my teen uses. She has very fair skin with a red tone and blemishes. She uses this with the concealer and it's PERFECT! She loves it! She is now sold on Smashbox - I already was!

            I have quite a bit of redness around my nose and cheeks, I usually use the regular photo finish primer but decided to try this one to combat the redness. I haven't seen any difference, will probably stick with the normal primer and use color correcting concealer...

              For the price - I definitely don't see what the smash is all about on this product. A very thin veil of I guess of primeresque kinda wanna be thing. I did not see the kind of result I was raved to on this product.
