      I am wicked red throughout my cheeks, nose and chin... love heredity! I put this on before the Smashbox liquid foundation. Trick.. give it a minute or two before you put on the foundation...tends to work a little bit better. I have been using over 2 years..happy!

          The beauty associate highly recommended this primer but I was greatly disappointed. It cause me to break out and felt greasy. It didn't help my makeup stay all day either.

                      Seems to cause breakouts. But starts out as a nice matte finish. Covers redness well other than that.

                        Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Adjust:

                        I have very oily and red skin. This primer helps conceal the redness. Good matte finish upon seconds on applying. Using this product allows my foundation to last 6 to 8 hours, depending on how hot/humid the day is.

                        It is a bit pricey but it serves its purpose well. There may be something equally as good or better out there for a lower price but I am too scared to experiment when this product works well for me.

                          I use the product daily under my foundation. It provides a smooth surface and requires less foundation for coverage. The only improvement would be how to get the product out of the tube when it reaches the end. I have cut the container in half and still have a weeks worth of product.

                              I have oily skin. I'm worried that this product will be too greasy if I use it with my light moisturizer. Should I wear it with moisturizer or alone? Does it leave skin greasy feeling?
