Warm a thin layer between fingertips and apply to bare lids. Let set for 30 seconds, then apply shadow. Going for a cat eye? Don't forget Photo Finish 24 Hour Shadow Primer on the outer corners.

      SO GOOD!!!! My eye shadow would always crease and I would use shape tape as an eye primer as I had heard it worked well but it did not for me. This primer blew me away!!!!!! It makes shadow last ALL day! On days/nights I know i'll be out for hours I set the primer with powder (a light dust of any powder will do) and it's crazy how long it lasts! It also lasts though the sweatiest workouts and hours of dancing at the club! I originally had the sample size and it has lasted me MONTHS! I had to buy the full size too!

          If you have oily eyelids and have problems with your eyeshadow creasing on you, you need this product in your life! I've just bought my 2nd tube of it! Everytime without fail, my eyeshadow looks good and without creases all day! you only need a little tiny bit for each eye so the tube lasts a long time.

            This eye shadow primer goes A long way because it's so thick. Thick in A good way. The colors of your eye shadow comes out more vibrant and a lot brighter.

              Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish 24-Hour Shadow Primer:

              This primer is amazing. The eyeshadow primer potion by Urban Decay used to be my go to shadow primer, until they updated the tubes to have applicators. Personallly, if it is eyeshadow primer in particular, I am in favor of squeeze tubes so I can control how much product I am dispensing with very little waste. So quite apparently this shadow primer by Smashbox is definitely a squeeze tube. Also, it is colorless so assumably works for all skin tones and does not change or alter the colors and pigmentations of your eyeshadow itself. Super easy to apply and small amounts go pretty long ways. I've found that this primer holds my eyeshadow in place at full color and pigmentation for my usual desired amount of hours, so also longlasting. The formula is smooth and silky, making application of the product rather comfortable. Love this primer by Smashbox!

              A little goes a long ways with this stuff! And it will last a long time. It is definitely worth the money and my eyeliner and eye shadow do no budge in bit. My eye lids tend to get oily but this primer sets my eye shadow nicely. On days I don't want to wear makeup but put a little liner and mascara on I put a little primer on my bottom lids and the eye liner stays put all day. Any ordinary day with no primer and just liner the liner would migrate to my crease and under my bottom lashes! Give this stuff a try, it's definitely worth it!!
