        Doesn't Last All Day

        By ay

        from Roseville, MI

        Comments about Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Eye Shadow Primer:

        The primer works for a few hours but not even close to a full day of work and school. It creases and runs especially if you wear gel liner. This product was recommended to me by the employee I was talking to at my local Ulta, so I tried it out but quickly switched back to Urban Decay's Original primer which hasn't caused me any problems. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone

              I got this in a kit for Christmas and was so excited because I love Smashbox so much. I was surprised at how big the sample size was and didn't think much of it after that. The first time I used it I took the slightest bit and it blended all over my eyelid, up to my brow bone and under my lower lash line. I'm not one to splurge on makeup too often but after wearing a smokey eye all day and it not creasing at all I would totally buy it again when my sample runs out, which will probably be pretty far from now. Overall, this eye shadow primer is worth every penny because it will last you forever and keeps your shadow on all day without creasing.

                  The girl at Ulta who helped me recommended this product and said it was the best for greasy eyelids (which is what I have) first time it worked great but now for some reason it's been creasing. I use the Naked 3 pallet for eye shadow so I'm not using cheap products either. Disappointed in the product.

                    Should I wait for this to feel dry before applying shadow? It has a tacky/sticky feel even after the 30-60 second wait.

                      A:

                      This product is actually one that I personally use every day and swear by! When I first started using it, I did experience this same issue. I found that by using less product, it dried more quickly - and was just as effective at keeping my eye makeup in place all day. I'd suggest applying a very small amount at a time. I use less than a pea-size amount for both eyelids. Applying and blending it using a small, flat concealer brush also helps to ensure it goes on smoothly and evenly and helps it to dry more quickly. Once dry, proceed with eye makeup application. I hope these tips help! :-)

                      A:

                      Photo Finish Lid Primer (Item #: 2210936) features a color-correcting tint and light diffusing properties to help minimize the appearance of fine lines & discoloration on the eyelids. It can be worn alone or under shadow.

                      This product applies invisibly (no tint) and is worn under shadow to lock it into place up to 24 hours. We hope these details help!
