  • "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

THIS PRIMER IS STUNNING. It was love at first use with this primer. It’s good for all skin types and looks stunning under my Fenty Beauty Foundation. It adds an extra glow to your look without looking too metallic. Lasts all day. Definitely repurchasing.

This is a really nice radiance primer from
Smashbox. Since I love that dewy skin look and I’m dry skinned, I really enjoyed it. No sun protection but I’m fine with that. I probably wouldn’t buy again just because I have so much primer.

I like the idea of this primer but I don’t find it too difference between this ‘radiance’ and the normal photo finish. Yes it works as a primer and I like it but I don’t see any added glow or radiance to my skin. So I guess I just don’t see a point in buying this over the regular photo finish. I would rather mix liquid highlighter with my foundation to get the all over radiance that I assumed this would help with

I liked this primer for its incredibly natural radiance but i didn't feel like it hydrated or prolonged the wear of the foundation. But it is very beautiful for photoshoots and videography!

Smashbox primers are amazing and this is one of my favs. It is super easy to blend and you don't need that much just a pea size amount and it goes a a long way. It is a matte finish and makeup last all day long. I have purchased this product three times already and it goes by fast because I use it on myself and family members when i do their makeup

I'm not a big fan of this, it makes my foundation look very thick and chunky. Maybe it would be better with another foundation, but I do not like it. And would not recommend.

This is the only primer I will use. It adds a subtle glow and keeps my makeup in place all day long. My makeup just doesn’t look as good without this primer on. This is a primer and highlighter in one. The price is great and it lasts quite awhile. This primer is a staple in my makeup routine. I would recommend.

I'm in love with this primer! It totaly hides my pores and all my skin imperfections by just using a little bit of it. It is easy to apply, and it perfectly mix with my skin colour, it also helps me to protect my skin by blocking dangerous sun rays. Are you interest? You'll love it, as I do.

Not convinced on this product, does seem to keep my make up on for slightly longer, but it has an orange tint to it and I wouldn’t say it is very “radiant” actually quite dull looking on the skin. Also doesn’t blend that well when applying. Better of to use fingers then a brush as well.

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?
