    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!

                  I have oily eyelids, and have found very few eyeshadow primers that truly work all day for me. I have been disappointed by a wide array of primers, from Milani to Urban Decay and Too Faced. This primer managed to keep shadow in place all day, with almost no creasing. This joins the NARS pro prime as my favorite work horse primer.

                    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!
