I bought this first stila product
This primer works as weLl as most but I didn't notice any difference with the colours added. I would not buy again as it is overpriced so a lower rating due to excessive cost

Not sure after 6 months?
I am over 40 and all of a sudden required bifocals. I have been wearing contacyts for nearly 30 years and am very experienced. What I have found is that I have to limit the # of hours per day I can wear the lenses. Sometimes I see very well, others I find it hard to read and would like to pluck them off like you could if wearing glassses. have concentrated on adjusting to glasses and am trying to wear the lenses daily for between 3-9 hours. Just not sure, I was told some people actually get one lense to correct for distance and the other for close. Sounds wierd bit it is all abut training your eye as where to look. Also bifocal prescriptions change often in first few years(Im told) so will persevere as I miss contacts, wore them most of the time before this change. Will repost if n change

Feels so luxurious
I got this product as part of a 3 product set with night, day and eye cream. It was a gift but I know it retails as a set for $150 plus, a savings as the night cream alone is over $100. I loved this eye cream and used it at night as was too thick for daytime use or wearing makeup. I often put on a serum and this over top especially good for drier winter skin. I might repurchase although I think for that price I can find other great products in the $50 range, I believe it is $100 range. A great gift for someone who appreciates quality, loves this brand or who has it all! I do miss it and if a deal comes along I may just get some more. Fine lines are definitely not visible when u use this stuff! Only reason I gave it an 8 is price

No good at all, and $$
This product was not good for me, it creased and dried out making my eyes look worse than if I had not used anything. It seems Smashbox does not make primers of any kind that I like especially for the $$. Have tried many best I have found are Cover FX for eyes and Lise Watier, my all time fav only $23. It is a Canadian company and I dont see it mentioned often, to bad as it is awesome, mid priced makeup. I have only ever disliked 1 product!!

Average, not worth the $$, sells for $50 where I live
I have used a number of primers in low and higher end price range. The one I have found to work the best is Clarins Perfect Touch and it is less expensive than Smashbox by about $10 or more at $29. t is a great find!! Stila had a 3 colour correcting primer which had no effect over a regular one .Lise Watier has an antiaging primer that is ok and $$, however their eye primer is the BEST EVER at about $23. I think like may Smashbox it is over rated for cost

I wont be without it now!!
I have tried many types of products from all lines but hadnt had much to do with Clarins. Read about it in an article suggesting it would add a glow when mixed with foundation. I was obsessed for some reason and after 2 weeks was able to find it.(several mnths ago)It is pricey but well worth the cost. I got the light shade rose as I am pale. I have used it under fondation but feel thats a waste so I mix directly with foundation or if using powder I dot it on spots that reflect light as a highliter. Just bought the brush on perfector from same line, think ithas changed recently as isnt like the red stick I see here, will review it seprately is significantly different from others in this 4 piece collection. Buy again for sure!!!

No good at all
I totally agree with the poor reports I have read here. As I usually use powder thought it would be different and convenient to use cream stick, a total disaster. was ready to just swear off stick cream when a cosmetician pointed out the Almay brand. I purchased it and have found it to be OK, still not the best. I then bought a dual from Lise Watier better quality I use lots of their products. It cost $20 CAN but I finally got the benefits of a cream, quick application, long wear, portability. I really like the product but will mostly stay with powder.

Fast natural look
I have been using this for sevral years now and it is the best in the category of powder foundation nd it has sunscreen init as well. It is important to apply properly which just takes a second. The brush used is important, it comes with it in a starter kit but I dont reay care for the other two powders so if I had known would have bought differently. Use the brush and always swirl it in the lid prior to putting it on your face the keys to awesome superfast application that is natural inappearance. I do use othr foundation sometimes if I want a cream but always end up going back to this due to ease and time factors THE BEST FAST PRODUCT I EVER HAD!

Just purchased and it is helping
I just boughtthis product as well as the eye cream as they had a promotion. I think it is as good as other more expensive products especially the eye cream as it is effective without too much irritation, will be more certain in a couple more weeks though
