    Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Adjust:

    I used it to reduce redness, which was the intended purpose of the makeup, but no matter how much I used or how I applied it (fingers/makeup brush) it made a barely noticible difference.

        Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Adjust:

        This neutralizes the redness in my cheeks wonderfully. I have rosacea and if there's a distinct temperature change my face turns blood red to the point people think I'm sick. This stuff makes me feel so much more confident and I feel like it has been very gentle on my skin.

            Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Adjust:

            This product is wonderful for my blotchy red, oily skin, & it even helps to minimize my huge pores. It is lightweight & feels so smooth & silky on my face & it helps my makeup last & helps control the shine I always get due to my very oily skin.Every once in awhile I'll put on my foundation/bb cream & then realize that I had forgotten my primer & my skin will look red & oily all day & makeup melts off. I have tried several other primers (some green tinted, some not) but I always go back to this one. My skin is acne prone & this primer did NOT break me out. I highly recommend!

            FYI Before you buy this though keep in mind that this tube is $39 for 1oz but the travel size tube is $15 for .5oz, so save yourself some money & get 2 travel sizes instead of 1 full size

                  I am wicked red throughout my cheeks, nose and chin... love heredity! I put this on before the Smashbox liquid foundation. Trick.. give it a minute or two before you put on the foundation...tends to work a little bit better. I have been using over 2 years..happy!

                      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.

                              Can I use this product by itself? I just have redness on my face, so can I use it by itself or do I need a bb cream/foundation over it?

                                Yes, you can wear Color Correcting Adjust Primer alone on bare or moisturized skin to help even out your complexion. Foundation is optional!

                              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?
