            This is by far one of the best primers I've ever used. if it seems watery at first, squeeze a little out, and then shake it like crazy, the consistency goes back to normal and with it being 1/2 price, im actually going to order another one just to stock up!

            shake it first

            Comments about Smashbox Online Only Jumbo Photo Finish Foundation Primer:

            I read the comments about the watery consistency, which I did get. I figured it was because it was the first time squeezing product out, it happens to some of my stuff as well so I just squeeze the watery part out and shake the package first then it works fine! still a great primer too, got a good value for the size. it should mad me a while

                Comments about Smashbox Online Only Jumbo Photo Finish Foundation Primer:

                I bought this because it sounded like a good deal. I used to use smashbox photo finish about a year ago, and stopped. I saw this was on sale and decided, hey, why not? It doesn't feel like the same formula.

                • Q:

                  For my combination skin, I use Tarte's Maracuja Oil before I apply my Tarte Amazonian clay foundation. Can this primer be used with Maracuja Oil, and if so, would I apply this primer before or after the oil?

                • Q:

                  According to the ingredient lists, the jumbo size has all of the same ingredients as the regular-sized primer, except that there is more Trisiloxane and less Silica in the jumbo, whereas it is vice versa in the regular. What difference does this make on the skin?

                    A:

                    Hi There! Trisiloxane is used to condition the skin and Silica is used as an oil absorber. Quantities of ingredients may vary slightly from batch to batch. This will should not effect the formula or its performance on the skin.

                • 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.
