Love!

By Kate

from Cumming, GA

Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light:

I had shared a bottle of the original Smashbox Photofinish primer with my mom and really liked it, but the product made my skin feel more oily. I tried this one after seeing it and store and I just love it! It applies so smoothly and gives my makeup such a seamless and natural glow that lasts all day, and my skin is left feeling moisturized but by no means oily! :)

    This is my favorite primer. It makes one's makeup last noticeably longer. A little goes a long way. It also never makes me breakout.

          I use this product instead of a foundation. I apply some concealer where needed, add some blush and set with a finishing powder.

            Good primer for oily skin; doesn't work as well as some of the heavier ones but they are the ones that make me break out.

              I use product on my T zone where I tend to have oil after wearing my make up all day. With this primer, I don't have to touch up at all during the day. Worth the price, you only use a small amount.

                  This product is a lighter version of the Classic Formula ideal to refresh oily, acne-prone or sensitive skin; it features a 60% water-based formula and is formulated with oil absorbers for a smooth matte finish. Both this product and the Classic Formula are oil-free and help visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores and keep makeup looking fresh.
