        After trying tons of primers, this one really is the best. It makes your skin feel like velvet and keeps your makeup even and fresh all day long. If you haven't tried it yet, you're missing out.

            Comments about Smashbox Online Only Jumbo Photo Finish Foundation Primer:

            DO NOT BUY THE JUMBO BOTTLE OF THIS PRIMER. There must be something wrong with the batch. Compared with the same primer in the other size bottles this primer is HORRIBLE. It feels like a cheap drugstore primer (or worse than drugstore). It is basically a bottle of oil, a completely different formula than what I've had in the past.

                    I have mature skin and I love the base this provides for my liquid foundation. I have found nothing else on the market like it. It looks like a gel, applies easily and evenly, and makes a satiny smooth base.

                      • Q:

                        The reviews said that the formula seems different in the bonus size bottle..like a greasy and lose formula. I would like to know if the formula has been changed because I would love to try this but I have oily sensitive skin.
