Most Helpful Positive Review NIce!
I was wary about this product because of the price, however, my eyes are ridiculously de-hydrated and I have fine lines even though I'm only 22 so I decided to give this product a try.
It is not a concealer, it does not correct dark circles nor is it a miracle worker but my under-eyes are much more hydrated, my concealer doesn't crease above my fine lines at all anymore, and combined with another eye product, my fine lines are nearly gone. Now, this product isn't a must have if you don't have dry or wrinkly under eyes and the price is certainly difficult, but I love this product and seeing as how it's on sale right now for half-price I'm thinking very strongly about getting a back up.
Most Helpful Critical Review Good on paper, but not in practice
I was looking for an under eye primer/ concealer, a "YSL touche eclat" sort of product, and was drawn by the fact that this one has anti-aging properties and "peptides" in addition to reflective, pearly peachy color that could be worn on its own (I like a natural look). Unfortunately, this did not work well with my routine of serum and sunblock lotion, as it immediately pills and settles on fine lines that are not even visible had I not applied product down there (I'm in my late 20s)! The consistency is too thick, does not blend well, and has minimal light reflective properties. I regret purchasing this without having tried a sample first, don't waste your money!

I've been using this product for a few years now and I absolutely LOVE IT! Please DO NOT discontinue this! It's the only thing that works well with my dark circles and helps my concealer(I use the Tarte Shape Tape Ultra Creamy) to blend easier and stay in place!
Have been using this for 5+ years years

I sincerely hope Smashbox never discontinues this product, as I I have bought it repeatedly. It helps keep my concealer on all day and it really brightens the area. It feels light and airy on the skin, and I never see it cake or slide into fine lines.
Doglady from Chicago
I apply a small amount directly over eye cream. It is soothing and holds concealer very well throughout the day. Just purchased second tube. Highly recommend.

I'm sold on this product!
Had high hopes and expectations
Kristen from South Carolina
I followed the instructions perfectly and after only a couple of days of using this product as intended the skin under my eyes is actually burnt. Regretting very badly that changed products. If it's not broken down fix it, right? Wanted to try something new and now I have bright red patches of actually burnt skin, as if acid was poured on it.

Been using this product for a week now. I love how it works with my concealer.
Does complete opposite
Lia from 90723
): it did not work for me. I was very hopeful due to the great reviews. I have oily skin and usually use a primer for my face to help keep it matte throughout the day and only apply makeup under my eyes to cover my dark circles. I have a couple of fine lines under my eyes so I decided to try an under eye primer. The primer goes on very creamy and shiny. But it dried the same way most eyeshadow primers do. It was very matte and not hydrating at all. it actually made my fine lines a whole lot more noticeable because my makeup settled right in. a few hours in and my under eye makeup looked chalky.
Finally coverage for my undereye circles that doesn't cake!
Christine from Eau Claire, WI
I think I've tried every under eye primer out there to help camouflage my dark circles under my eyes. This is by far the best. Only negative - squeeze dispenser makes it difficult to get the right amount of product out.
Keeps my concealer from creasing.

My undereye area is moisturized after using thus product
Bye bye crease
Jacy from NC
I've been using this for a few weeks now and I just love the lack of creases that now happen when I apply my conclear over top of this. It also helps to hide my dark circles and decrease the puffiness of my under eyes. This is a hidden gem.
Doesn't settle into lines
Sophie from San Diego, CA
I have mild eye bags and dark circles. The lines under my eyes that extend from he inner corner of my eyes are deep. I've been looking for something to cover the dark circles that won't settle into the lines. I tried a few concealers, and I like Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector the best. However, it settles in to the lines when used alone. I read good reviews about Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer and gave it a try. I apply Becca on top of it. It works! But eventually I'm going to get laser treatment to get rid of all those problems.
Best Under Eye Primer I've Found
Agent Snogpitch from Olathe, KS
I can never seem to keep my bottom lash line liner or even under eye concealer on due to sweat, and other primers leave it rough and cakey in texture. This is the best thing I've found so far. It is expensive, but let's be real; Smashbox leads the way in all things primer, and this one is no exception. And considering I'm only using it under my eyes, I imagine one tiny little bottle will last me for a LONG time!
Casey from Iowa
I'm pretty picky and often find the others I've tried still crease and show my makeup lines. This feels great and lasts for the long days. Definitely recommend!
I will never stop buying this product
NicoleTec from Monroe, MI
I absolutely love this product! I received it in my ipsy bag and was like ehhh what is this? I tried and was like WHOA WHAT IS THIS!? A little goes a long way, it brightens my under eyes and reduces any puffiness from sleeping. I love that it gives just a little tingle once it's on for a few minutes..it's almost refreshing. I know it's expensive but get yourself a 20% off like I'm about to do and order yourself another one. You won't regret it. I believe this is one of smashbox's hidden gems.
JuJuBee from Plano, TX
A small amount of product provides smooth surface for concealor. Concealer application went on without settling into any fine lines & stayed smooth all day.
Miss Mo from Philadelphia
I put this on over eye cream but before foundation. I have wrinkles & puffiness. I had this for awhile & never used it. I was going through my makeup & found it & put it on. Why didn't I use this before. ? It has a shiny consistency when you first put it on but under foundation , you can't notice it. My under eye looks at least 10 yrs younger!!My under eye area was so dry from using retinol & wow , you can barely see my wrinkles. I don't use concealer . I don't have discoloration. You really don't need with this! Thanks, Smashbox. I will never be without!!
Lightweight and easy application
Rexie95 from EM, NY
The previous product I used felt heavy & was not easily "spread". What a difference the right product makes!
MStr7 from Madison, WI
I got this product when I bought the Try It: Primer Authority kit by Smashbox (which I also recommend) and was a little disappointed with the size at first. (It was very small and comparable to the tiniest sample I've gotten of another primer), but found I really don't need a lot and received a good amount of product. It is a very creamy product that absorbs fairly fast (maybe do some eye makeup while waiting for it to be absorbed) and it really did hydrate my undereye area. I found this product does work better with some concealers than with others. I'm not sure if I would purchase this after my sample runs out just because I don't have many issues using regular primer on my undereye area.
WHERE has THIS been all my LIFE!

I wish I had found this product years ago! My concealer did not crease, cake or move all day.
Exactly what I needed!

Helped my super undereye dryness quickly giving my foundation/concealer a smoother look!
It's Worth It

So glad I tried this. It is light on coverage but big on priming. Smashbox once again delivers another great product. A little goes a long way too.
THIS IS NOT CONCEALER!
CareBear54 from Nashville Tn
This however is a under eye primer an works Amazing if its used correctly. It hydrates an smooths so that your concealer doesn't fall into fine lines under your eyes.
