Smashbox Photo Finish Radiance Primer
- "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
I’m pretty oily in the summer so I find this to be a great primer for winter time when I’m a bit more drier, closer to combination though. I think in the winter time is when I like more of a glow since I’m in need of it then. Works well as a primer.
This is a nice primer for someone who has warmer undertones. I have cooler undertones in the wintertime and this product was too shiny/orange looking for my skin tone. It is light weight and you don’t have to use much of it. Expensive for the full size. Definitely try a take-home sample first!
Doesn’t really give a “radiant” look, it’s more like a highlighting vibe. But it is very easy to blend. After your foundation on it just gives it a more natural finish. I would recommend this to those who love a natural look.
Amazing primer which is extremely hydrating! It contains shea butter & hyaluronic acid which help keep the skin hydrated and soft and has crushed amber to give the skin a very subtle glow!!!!!
Love this product when i want a nice summer glow. Doesn’t hide the pores well and it does leave my skin feeling extra oily. However it does last throughout the day and it would recommend it to someone with normal-dry skin.

This is one of my favorite primers! I don’t wear foundation, so I like to layer a nice primer over my skincare so that my other makeup products have an even surface to adhere to. This primer does not irritate my sensitive skin, adds the perfect touch of radiance, and balances and prepares my skin well for makeup. I will definitely continue to purchase this primer.
Can’t go wrong with the classics! I love the smoothing, illumination it gives my skin. It’s not necessarily a shimmer, but a dewey finish. So if you consistently like a Dewey look rather than matte, this is a good option.
If I could give this 5 more stars I would!! I received this in an ipsy bag and FELL IN LOVE. This is a perfect product with or without makeup over it. On a bare face it provides a beautiful glow. It provides a smooth surface for make up application and truly lives up to the name "radiant". Also a little goes a long way which makes it a good bang for the buck.
If you haven’t tried this primer and you love dewy skin what are you doing worth your life? This primer give the most healthy glow without being greasy and is perfect to help keep the glow from under your foundation. I also love using this on the high points of my face by itself when I just want a no makeup look but I still want the radiance and glow!
Smashbox doesn't disappoint! While I prefer a spray on primer, this creme one is great for a full coverage finish for the days I do full face. It gives off a deep base that really holds color. It blends beautifully as well. Overall for "fancy" face days this is my go to!!
Q & A
Does anyone know if the smashbox photo finish primer is any good?Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer- Radiance With Hyaluronic Acid
How is this primer ?
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?
