  • "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

I got this as a deluxe sample from Sephora, and I'm pretty happy with it. It really does moisturize and prime in one step. Not exactly sure about the photo finish part, but it does simplify things and shorten the time I need to get ready.

I'm combination skin type, and it works so well on my skin. It's like a water serum, it dries but in a hydrated form, feels very fresh on my face. Any foundation can stick to this primer. I recommend!

I was afraid of this product because I have super oily skin... but if I use this instead of moisturizer I don’t get oily at all. It holds my makeup in place and definitely helps with the lasting power!

I absolutely love this primer. The way I️t works is so unique. The formula is very liquidy but is very moisturizing. Once settled in the skin I️t fills in pores and works as a normal primer. This works amazing with all foundations!!

I really like this primer! It works well for me in the winter since my face gets so dry. It works well as both a moisturizer and a primer. It keeps my makeup looking good and my skin from getting dry and cakey. I really like it!

Just an average primer. When I put it on it does make my skin feel smooth. Do I feel more moisturized.. No, I prefer their regular one better. Natural finish nothing extra about it. Nothing I would go out of my way to purchase.

This is amazing! I love this and it makes my dry skin so hydrated. I love how it makes my skin look and feel. Highly recommend if you have dry skin. I can’t speak for oily but for my fellow dry skin people it’s so amazing.

Super lightweight, hydrating and keeps my foundation in place. I really like the consistency. Im extremely picky when it comes to primers and moisturizer but this is a two in one product that I can’t live without now

Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer works wonderfully! Smooths over my face and feels nice. Lasts all day by itself or under foundation. Keeps my foundation looking great and smooth. Doesn’t clog my face up and I’d recommend this to everyone.
