  • "this product is great for use as a tinted moisturizer, however is isn’t the best with foundation. i like to have a matte look when i wear foundation and this makes my face look oily. i recommend using the regular photo finish primer with foundation." in 107 reviews

Did not like at all. It didn’t have a good spreading consistency. I felt like I had to use a lot because it wouldn’t spread very well over my face, made my face super yellow under my foundation and thus I had a yellow look all day.

This primer is absolutely gorgeous! It gives your skin a simple glow and still primes without the glow being too extreme. I have mostly dry skin and this worked so amazing. I definitely recommend if you have drier skin. I love it!

This product reminds me of BECCA Backlight Priming Filter but less glowy. I enjoy this primer but I feel like it does not prolong my makeup. It gives me a nice finish to the skin underneath foundation which is why I have this product 4 stars. I usually don’t have too much of an issue getting makeup to stay on my skin, so I’m happy with a lot of primers. This is a great product for those who have dry skin especially. I would definitely pick this up!

Smashbox makes my absolute favorite makeup primers! This is the one that I’m currently using. I believe that I received it in my IPSY box. IPSY has sent me a lot of Smashbox primers over the last year, and I’ve loved them all!

The primer isn’t awful, and it definitely adds a glow but with any full coverage foundation the glow doesn’t usually show up. I would use this if you don’t want to wear any foundation but want to add some radiance to your skin.

I didn’t really notice anything when wearing it under makeup. But wearing it alone added a healthy glow to my skin and made me feel more put together on a day where I wasn’t wearing any makeup. I probably wouldn’t buy a full size

I love using this on clients whose skin a bit dry or even just lacking radiance! It has a very very small amount of shimmer but only enough to give a non greasy glow! It pairs really well with Estée Lauder Double Wear!

This is my all time favorite facial primer! It works great as a base but also I've wore it as is on days where I am not looking to do a full face. Or in the evenings, when I've already taken my makeup off for the day but I have to run out. Just put a little on just to brighten my face. I constantly feel like my natural face is very dull. I've never tried it over my makeup but after reading a few other review I am excited to try it!

This primer goes on so smoothly that you can barely tell it’s there. For all the color and shimmer in it, I was kind of afraid to put it on. But it wasn’t noticeable, gave me just a little cheek glow in pictures.

This looks pretty dark in the tube, so I'm wondering how it looks over fair skin. Does it blend out to a nice color, or will it leave a dark cast?

Does this have a dewy finish or a more "lit from within" finish?
