        My skin feels like porcelain after applying this. I notice that my pores become a little less noticeable but I still apply a pore minimizer on some areas. I mainly use this on it own to even out my skintone, which gives a natural, glowy look.

        Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Even Tone Primer:

        It definitely covers my brown acne scars but it just add a white cast to your face, which is covered by foundation and the scars don't seem to come through my foundation as much. So it does work for me but I would still add another color corrected for added coverage.

              I don't usually buy the same product twice since I love experimenting with different varieties, brands, etc. This is the only primer I will buy. At first I thought it was too thick but it goes on very smoothly and works well with my uneven skin tone due to acne scars. The price is a bit high but one tube lasts me a while.

                        Is this the best primer to cover up acne dark spots. I have smashbox radiance and love it. Just wondering before I buy this one if it would change color skin where I would need a new foundation color.
