      Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light:

      I have very oily skin and this helps keep my makeup in place all throughout the day so by 5pm when I'n done working, my makeup is still on. It is small and very pricey, but I find i need it daily. I will continue to invest in it though!

      worth the $

      By Zannagirl

      Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light:

      This product is super light. When u put it on it doesn't feel like much but once u put ur make up over it u xan see the difference. I've tried the original version too and I would say the original is better but either one is worth the $

          I have oily and prone skin. This seemed like it would be perfect for me but I did not like it. I also tried the regular formula and it worked better for me. The light primer seemed to be greasier and did not stay on as long or keep my makeup looking matte.

                  A:

                  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.
