    Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Luminizing Primer:

    I love mixing this with my daily moisturizer. It gives just the right amount of pop. It can be worn alone too, which I have done. I only mix it because it has 0 spf. This product really is great and lasts all day. I don't even feel it on my skin which is a huge bonus for me because I am not what one would consider a makeup wearer. A little dab of this mixed with my moisturizer makes me look kissed by the sun. It's perfect and probably the most natural looking product I'm aware exists.

      I've tried several different primers. This one I have found to be the best. I blend it with alittle moisturizer before applying. Makes it go farther, and easy to use. Stays in place all day, gives my face a slight glow, and doesn't cause breakouts.

        The product is amazing. I love that it has a sparkle to it. It reduces the appearance of line. I get a lot of compliments every time I wear it.

          I do like this primer and wear it quite frequently, however, Pixi flawless beauty primer is really nice also. The Pixi gives me a more luminous finish. Although I will still continue to use the Smash Box primer.

                Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Luminizing Primer:

                I love that extra little "pop" this product gives from underneath my foundation. It has just enough to wear with only a little blush for when I go to the gym or just want a no-makeup look.

                The only criticism is when I first opened it an oily liquid came out. I checked the label and packaging and there was no shake well instruction. If you have dry skin, as I do, this is a fabulous product!

                  I love the glow I get from this product. It gives me that extra little "pop" I've been looking for from under my foundation! It is light enough to use by itself with a bit of blush for a totally natural no makeup look.

                    works ok but not as well as would have liked. some of this could be due to dull skin.
