Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer:

I'm not sure what all the bad reviews are about, this product is amazing! I use it with the Tarte Shape Tape concealer and it's perfect. I have really bad dark circles under my eyes and I have been searching for years for the perfect way to cover them up and I have found it. I highly recommend this with the Shape Tape if you have the same problem.

      Doesn't Really Hydrate the Skin

      By gayleydelong

      from North Richland Hills, TX

      Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer:

      This primer does not work well with full coverage concealers. I understand the purpose of it, though. It's supposed to hydrate the skin and give the under eye area a glowy look, but if you use a full coverage under eye concealer, it won't be seen. Also, it doesn't really hydrate the skin.

            Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer:

            LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this eye primer. It's so much more than a primer - it reduces puffiness and crepiness in an instant. It also softens the look of my makeup. I put this on after my foundation and powder - yes, on top of those because while I need those products to keep the even look of the makeup on my face, I pat this on top to soften the drying look of the powder and blend everything together while "de-puffing" and softening all of the lines and crepiness. It has this awesome cooling effect and a very subtle luminosity that is not too much. It is also great on its own for days when I am makeup free. And, it's a great bedtime eye cream/treatment. Ladies, try this - it will become a "must have" in your beauty bag too!

                  From Smashbox Cosmetics:

                  Do you test on animals?
                  We don't test on animals, nor ask others to test on our behalf, except where required by law.

                  What countries require animal testing?
                  China, most notably, in addition to a few others that conduct testing by law of cosmetic products or ingredients to demonstrate safety.

                  Does Smashbox sell in any of these countries?
                  No.

                  What are we doing to end animal testing?
                  Our founders launched with a commitment to end animal testing, and that commitment remains. For instance, we only conduct or commission in vitro/human volunteer testing to show our products are safe, and we're part of the European Partnership for Alternatives to Animal Testing, among other efforts.

                I wear a powder foundation due to my combination skin, I have been having a hard time with it "clumping" around my under eye because of my eye cream. Because of this my under eye looks a few shades darker than the rest of my face. Would this product be a good choice for me to use after my eye cream and before applying my foundation? I do not want to cancel out the effects of my eye cream but I want my skin to look even.

                  Hi There! You can definitely use the Under Eye Primer to make your skin look smooth and even. We suggest pairing it with one of our Color Correcting Sticks in Peach or Orange. This will reduce the need to set with powder.
