Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Reduce Redness Primer:

Im very very fair, i have lots of redness in my cheeks so i got this to go all over my face hoping it would cancel out some of that and i would be able to use less foundation. It seemed to work in the store when a makeup artist applied it to my skin but I've tried every way under the sun to apply it since and have not been able to obtain the same effect. does seem to create a smooth base for foundation application but does not do nearly enough to cancel out the redness. not worth the price tag for that reason

          I'm late to the party! Didn't know about product. I loved seeing videos and loved the results. So I started my research. 99% of the time SMASHBOX was either product used or on a lot of the reviews. I am so happy with this product! They are the originals that came out with this magic! So why try the copy cats when you got the original?! The lady at ULTA was a huge help! Thank you!!

            By Cherie

            from Michigan

            Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Reduce Redness Primer:

            I wanted to love this product but I just don't. it does take some of the redness down but I get large bumps not acne but looks similar each time I use this product. Another major disappointment is how my foundation always separates with this product, I've tried four different brands. When I don't use this primer my foundation is fine. Pure sadness!

              I am enjoying the correcting primer especially when wearing NO makeup. Easy to run an errand and not feel I don't have makeup - it isn't makeup but evens out skin tone. Excellent !
              Still trying under different types of foundations !

                I have combo/oily skin in spring and summer and combo dry in late fall and winter. I have some melasma and some redness on my nose and upper cheekbones. I currently have a mini size of the color correct adjust primer and just saw that there is a apricot color correct primer as well. Which would be better suited for my issues? I like the adjust primer but not so sure it covers the slight redness on nose and cheeks. It does do better than most I have tried in the past. Thanks for any help you can provide.
