          Works great but some issues with tube

          By Alyssa in Texas

          from Cleburne TX

          Pros

          • Easy to apply
          • Economical
          • Keeps shadow on
          • Long lasting
          • One tube lasts a long time

          Cons

          • Tube sometimes blows out

          Best Uses

          • When first applying makeup

          Comments about Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Eyeshadow Primer:

          I love this product. I put on my foundation and then apply this product along with an under eye concealer for a great finished look. It really brightens the eye. I have used it for over 2 years and the only complaint I have is of the multiple tubes I've owned, two have blown out at the seam during air travel. But it lasts a long time for such a small tube. I squeeze about a fingertips worth on to my ring finger and divide for both eyes and the shadow and liner lasts all day.

            Comments about Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Eyeshadow Primer:

            I have oily eyelids and can only wear eye shadow for about 2-3 hours before it creases. Way back in the 80s (let's just not talk about my age!) I tried this type of product, and it gave me an extra 2-3 hours of wear before creasing, which I thought was great, but it still wouldn't get me through a full day without me needing to reapply my shadow. I eventually gave up and stopped wearing eye shadow.
            Now that my kids are mostly grown and I have disposable money again, I decided to see if any improvements had been made in the last 30 years. I've used this product 4 times now, and WOW! Makeup goes on at 7 am, and when I go wash my face at 9 or 10 in the evening, my lipstick has long since disappeared, my nose and forehead are shiny, but my eye shadow looks as fresh as it did when I put it on 14 hours earlier!

                No matter what eyeliners I use ( waterproof/ smudge proof) it would smudge under my eye during the day. Would this help prevent that? Trying to advoid raccoon eyes. Thanks. Please advise.

                  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! :-)

                  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!
