    Will never use a different eye primer. Doesn't crease or get oily through the day. Bottle lasted me a long time with everyday use. Worth the money.

    Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer:

    I love the primer and the tone of it, but I notice there is a lot of product left in the container I can't get due to the design. I took a Q-tip and bent it slightly to get the very bottom, sides and top. I was able to get about a month left of use out of it.
    Even if I could remove the center plastic insert I'd be able to get so much product out easily with the applicator.

      Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer:

      I've tried many lid primers and always go back to this one. I like the wand applicator. I have some redness in my lids and it covers completely. Shadow goes on smoothly after. This one is the best. Don't stop making it, Smashbox.

            Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer:

            This product works wonderfully. I have very fair skin and even the fair color is not light enough for me. Shade it was the only pitfall. I would have gone with clear but wanted to conceal the blood vessel appearance on my eyes that is the result of extremely fair skin. I would recommend this product to people who have darker tone skin

            Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer:

            I use this everyday. I've tried many eyeshadow primers that crease and dry out my lids, but this doesn't. It's the perfect base under my eyeshadow.

                  Is this anti aging and does it have silicone in the product

                    A:

                    Hi There! The Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer is not considered anti-aging. The formula does contain demethicone and derivative of silicone.
