  • "this is a good primer for all types of skin. i have very oily skin and it still is good for under my makeup or on it's own on no makeup days. only down fall is it doesn't do anything for my pores so i have to go in for another primer in my t zone but still good for what it claims although it is a bit pricey." in 54 reviews
  • "very watery texture so it feels light on the skin. absorbs really quickly and makeup application is smooth. i put on a lot of moisturizer before priming so i’m not sure if this is hydrating my skin but it isn’t leaving any dry patches. i got this as a sample and may repurchase when it runs out." in 50 reviews

This product is sooo good for setting your full face of makeup it stays on all day and keeps your makeup on until it's taken off , no it doesn't hide pores , but it is long lasting. It makes your face feel brand new it is quite pricey but it worth it in my opinion

One of my favorite primers right now. When I first started using this I wasnt sure it was going to do anything because its thin and watery but when you rub it into the skin it feels moisturizing without feeling thick and leaves a slightly tacky feeling which I like because I feel like that helps foundation stick rather than slip and slide around. Hydration is key for my skin and it does the job!

The first time I used this I fell in love! It’s more of a natural finish, I feel like it’s good for combo skin, that’s what I have and it hydrates my face and keeps my makeup so perfect! I can tell the difference when I don’t have this primer on my foundation looks all caky and with this one it has an amazon finish ! I already purchased another one and getting in the mail soon! Highly recommend!

I am in LOVE with this! I have used the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer previously, but this is a summer game-changer for me as I live in the very hot and very humid deep South of Alabama. When I used this product under my foundation, I had all- day coverage with no pilling, no running, and I had no sweaty mess at the end of the day! In addition, it did not clog pores or make my face break out! I'm a believer!

This has been my go to primer for forever! I have combination skin and it works perfect! I apply it before my makeup and it creates such a smooth nice canvas for all my makeup. There is a noticeable difference when i wear my makeup with and without this primer.

So far this has to be my absolute favorite high end primer. This is great for people that have dry skin, I myself have super dry skin and love the way it moisturizes my face and leaves a perfect base for makeup application. It leaves my foundation looking so good! I just wish it was a bit cheaper, but for smashbox you can’t beat it especially for how much you get in a bottle.

I recieved a sample of this primer and I absolutely love it! It reminds me alot of the hangover rx by too faced. Very thin and soaks in super quickly leaving behind a soft hydration to the skin. I have super dry skin in the winter and those 2 primers are what kept my skin looking healthy and alive. They keep the foundation from sticking to dry patches. I will repurchase forever!

This has quickly become my go to primer. If you have dry skin get this asap! It gives my skin a pretty, natural glow while actually hydrating it instead of just making it look that way. It helps your make up stay longer too. It really is the best of both worlds!!

I tend to be on the normal or dry side of things so all the primers that have silicone in them never looked great on my skin but this makes my makeup look great. It’s not heavy at all and it does feel like a light moisturizer. I highly recommend this product.

I really enjoy this primer! It goes on like a very thin moisturizer. It also becomes a little tacky, unlike their original primer. It sets my makeup very nicely. I have normal to dry skin so this is definitely a product for my skin type. It is not matte, so be cautious if you're oily. Also, even though the bottle is big and the packaging is solid, it is pricey! 42$ is not cheap!
