Photo Finish Foundation Primer: Apply a pea-size amount to clean, moisturized skin. Follow with your favorite foundation. Tip: Use a small amount to tame flyaways or erase shadow fallout.

Photo Finish 24 Hour Shadow Primer: Apply a thin layer to bare lids. Wait 30 seconds, then apply shadow. Tip: Brush a small amount into your brows to keep your arch in place.

        Love the primer spray and face primer. I do not see the point in an eyeshadow primer, but it's a cool product to have since it came in the pack.... definitely a great buy for the price.

                Comments about Smashbox Try It Kit: Primer Authority:

                I bought this because I needed more primer water and I wanted to try some other things from Smashbox without breaking the bank. First of all, the primer water is amazing, I've been using it for over a year and I still love it. Secondly, the eye primer is AMAZING. I would go out and buy the full tube of the eye primer because it was SO good. My makeup didn't move! It lasted all day, no fallout, and looked amazing the entire time. I had it on from 6 in the morning until 9 at night and it was flawless the entire time. However, I hate the primer. My skin is normal-oily, and for some reason this primer does NOTHING for me. It makes me itch. It doesn't make my make up last. I see no difference what so ever except I get itchy.
