Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish More Than Primer Dark Spot Correcting Primer:

Love this brand of Primer. Convinced my mom to get a primer from Smashbox because I love the color correcting primer for myself. I told her it was a little more but I love the feel and that it helps my foundation last all day and go on smooth. She ended up getting the Dark spot corrector and told me after one day she loves it. It leaves a silky feel once applied and does not leave you oily. It is great for all skin types because I am a combination/oily complexion and don't feel oily or dried out when using it.

Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish More Than Primer Dark Spot Correcting Primer:

I can't rave enough about this!! I have extremely oily skin. Always have. I was very hesitant to buy this for two reasons: the price, adding another step to my morning routine. I can tell you with all honesty, it was so worth it. It doesn't take any time to apply and it just glides on smoothly. I finish the rest of my makeup and am good to go. Usually about 3hrs into work I am an oily mess and need to use blotting sheets. Since I've started using this, I can work 6hrs straight without needing any touch ups or blotting. It's so worth the price and feels great to put on. I haven't been using it long enough to see if my dark spots are fading yet but with all the other perks, I am more than happy with my purchase.

      A little expensive but worth the money as my breakouts calmed after just a few days of use and my skin is clear using this brand.

        I love how this primer goes on smoothly and mattifies my foundation. I think it may have caused some breakouts but that could be coincidental, as I get blemishes occasionally. I stopped using it for one week and will try again. Overall I love the product.

                  Provides wonderful staying power for foundation and eye makeup. Have used their "regular" primer for a year and now trying this one with the dark spot correcting. Smashbox really knows how to do primers: I am hoping the spot lightening works as well!

                      A:

                      We do not recommend using a brush. Apply a dime-size amount to clean or moisturized skin, using fingertips, for complexion perfection. Follow with your favorite foundation.
