I have pretty oily skin and usually prefer powder makeup. This primer made my makeup, which normally blends into my skin well, seem to cake and float leaving patches of bare skin and patches of heavy makeup. My face felt smooth but it made my powder highlight and crease every tiny line. It's also quite expensive so I would not recommend or buy it again.

This has been my absolute favorite primer for years! It makes my skin look flawless and my foundation lasts all day when I use it. It's really nice that it has sunscreen in it also because it saves me from having to use multiple products. I would highly recommend this primer to everyone!

I've never understood the hype with the Smashbox primers, especially this one. It was easy to apply and blend and had a natural finish but for me it didn't do anything special. With my primers, I like to have an added benefit, for example, a glow, filled pores, hydrating, etc.  something other than JUST a primer. I feel like this would be good for people with oily skin just looking for a matte finish or someone who wanted to add SPF to their beauty routine, because it does have some sun protection. For the price, this product is not worth it to me. I feel like there are better primers out there for half the price.

This was the first primer I have ever tried.  I was drawn to it because I had heard good things and I appreciate that it has SPF in it to help protect my fair skin.  I love the way it feels and how it applies on my normal to dry combination skin.  A little goes a long way and it doesn't make my foundation difficult to blend.  I definitely did help keep my makeup on longer, just not as long as my new primer so I'm giving it 4 stars.  I think it's definitely worth a shot, but if you can get a sample first to be sure.

I liked this primer. It was nice to have the extra boost of SPF as well. BUT, I don't think it is anything special to spend so much money for! It works the same as any other silicone based primer does. It smooths, and feels really nice on the skin. Just not worth the price tag now that there are so many other options.

This primer is amazing I bought it at winners/marshals for $16.99 when the retail price is $49.99. I’m the one who loves silicone feeling primers that fill my pores I think this primer is good for oily - combination skin types. Overall 10/10 I will definitely purchase it agin even though I’ve bought it twice now. :)

Smash box primer was smooth and easy to apply the over all feel of the prime was light and not greasy. Had a small amount of shimmer which I am not fond of but the over all product was great foundation applied over the primer went on smooth and didn't crease or become greasy after hours of wear.

This is the first high end primer I've ever used and Jesus this stuff is amazing! It totally beats the ELF ones I was using previously. I love the texture and it really does make my makeup last longer. A little goes a LONG way!

I would like to buy it to try, but I am afraid of not liking because my skin is very oily :(, what is the purpose of this product? Is it just a primer? Seems to be incredible, but I'm afraid of not matching my skin Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Must-haves Duo
