Great primer!

By Jillian

from Michigan

Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Radiance with Hyaluronic Acid:

I received this product as gratis and it's been sitting in my drawer for a while now. I finally decided to use it the other day since my foundation had been applying oddly (I think due to the primer I had been using). It feels so nice on the skin and leaves a nice subtle golden sheen on the face. After using my UD Naked Skin foundation on top, I could still see the glow underneath and it looked so gorgeous and I can't remember the last time my foundation went on this well and looked this good! It also doesn't have a silicone feeling like the original Smashbox primer so if you aren't a fan of that, you should try this!! Absolutely love.

    I received a sample from ipsy and immediately had to purchase this when I ran out. This is my "go to" for primer as well as something just to even out my skin tone if I don't want to go full out makeup.

              This is another success from Smashbox. If you're looking for a bit of radiance, this is for you. It has the perfect amount of texture to stick to your foundation. I don't find that it does extremely well on large pores, but combined with your favorite pore perfector, you will not be disappointed!

                    Is the best formula for dry skin with wrinkles at bridge of nose and starting wrinkles around mouth? I have always loved the blue, hydrating formula.

                      Hi There! If you loved the Hydrating Primer and are concerned with wrinkles we suggest the Photo Finish Foundation Primer with SPF. It contains dermaxyl, a powerful peptide known to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
