      Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Adjust:

      This product is wonderful for my blotchy red, oily skin, & it even helps to minimize my huge pores. It is lightweight & feels so smooth & silky on my face & it helps my makeup last & helps control the shine I always get due to my very oily skin.Every once in awhile I'll put on my foundation/bb cream & then realize that I had forgotten my primer & my skin will look red & oily all day & makeup melts off. I have tried several other primers (some green tinted, some not) but I always go back to this one. My skin is acne prone & this primer did NOT break me out. I highly recommend!

      FYI Before you buy this though keep in mind that this tube is $39 for 1oz but the travel size tube is $15 for .5oz, so save yourself some money & get 2 travel sizes instead of 1 full size

            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.

                              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.

                                  Yes, you can wear Color Correcting Adjust Primer alone on bare or moisturized skin to help even out your complexion. Foundation is optional!
