    Comments about Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer:

    I used this primer for a recent dance show, and it lasted through 4 sweaty performances, and my eye chadow still looked great when I got home after midnight. Not a single crease. I have never had my eye make up last that long for show days. It is excellent, and it doesn't take much!

      Comments about Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer:

      I absolutely love this primer. I have tried so many primers. I have oily skin and oily eyelids and this has seriously been the only primer that will stay on all day and into the night without a crease, smudge, or wearing off. I have slept with it on and my make-up was still there in the morning. I hope it never changes and never goes away.

        Comments about Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer:

        I've tried so many eyeshadow primers, from cheap to expensive, and none of them ever keep my eyeshadow from creasing on my super oily eyelids. Seriously, when I don't wear eyeshadow, after a few hours, it looks like I applied clear lip gloss to my eyelids (yuck). But this miracle primer changes everything. I can go a full 8 hours or longer without any creasing. Yes it's expensive, but you only need a thin layer for it to work its magic. If you haven't found an eyeshadow primer that you like yet, take a change and splurge a bit for this one.

                I use this on my lower lash line before applying eyeliner. It makes a huge difference in the lasting time of my liner. It's also great for eyeshadow. Shadow will stay put for hours and hours.

                  I love this product. It allows your eye shadow to last all day. This product has been redesigned within the last year and it is 100% better. The primer applies easy and includes a lot if it so you don't have to repurchase often.

                    amazing! I love this product! it really does last all day no smudges, the only con is that it is really difficult to remove. even with waterproof makeup remover it really does take a long time. a little goes a long way!

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

                          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!

                          Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer looks white out of the tube, but once it's applied, it is completely invisible/clear! It is designed for all complexions.
