Not worth buying

By Perla

from Illinois

Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Reduce Redness Primer:

I had high hopes for this primer, I have a little bit of redness on my face and hoped that finally I found my holy grail primer for me but .... nope... doesn't do anything for my redness at all, my foundation flaked with this product which with other cheaper primer won't, although it leaves a smooth feeling on my face after applying but not for my main concern. I finished the product cuz I won't waste my money but won't buy again.....

        This product was for my daughter, she had being asking for something like this, she says its ok for her, but I used it once when traveling as I forgot my primer, and I did not like it at all, it feels grainy not smooth on application, and you can feel a residue once applying your foundation.

          I had a lot of redness on my face. Even with the fullest coverage foundations, I feel like some of my redness still comes through. This primer has been my holy grail! It really reduces any redness I have! I can use it and throw on some B.B cream and run out the door!

            I have some redness on my cheeks so I was excited to try this to help color correct before I put on my foundation. I found that it really doesn't do much. It feels really nice on the skin but that's about it. It didn't reduce any redness and it didn't even work well as just a primer. I returned it for a cheaper alternative that I feel works even better

              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 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.
