    As Good as Smashbox

    I've been using the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer and enjoying it, but I was looking around for suitable alternatives since it is just so expensive. I don't have oily skin, so I can't vouch for whether or not it actually mattes skin, but this is the only one that I've tried that even comes close to what Smashbox delivers. it has that same silky feeling and it keeps my makeup on for my 12-hour more I wait for The Body Shop to have their 50% off sales and then use my Love Your Body card to get another 10% off. Add some more coupons and my points bonuses, and I wind up paying only about $4 for this, so it really is a great deal for a great product. So if you're also a member of the Body Shop's Love Your Body program, you should pick this up on your next trip over, it's not a huge money commitment.

    I actually adore it

    I'm a fan of silicone and gel primers rather than lotions as I feel they work better for my combination/normal skin, this makes concealer and foundation application an absolute breeze and I really enjoy using it, I haven't used it on my eyes too often as I don't like the idea of primer gunking up my lids, and I can imagine it would have an odd effect on the lips, nevertheless I love it for my skin

    Great primer for me

    Maybe it doesn't do so well for r but i do love a it keeps my liquid foundation on for twelve hours (not profusely sweating). makes face feel silky but don't use around the eyes it'll make your eyeshadow slip so use a normal eye primer there. wouldn't suggest it as lip primer as well

    It disappointed me, too

    I paid $15 for this hoping it would make my oily skin matte. Instead it did nothing... what a waste! I could have bought powder instead. IMO this was a piece of crap but I really wanted to like it.

    It works for all of five minutes.....did nothing to help with the shininess or control of oils. Too bad.....don't waste your money on this and buy some oil absorbing sheets instead.

    I love it!

    I have very oily skin and large pores. I wear this under my makeup or alone. Under make up it keeps the shine away and gives you a matte look all day! Without makeup it leaves a matte finish without any oily feel whatsoever! It's the first product I have found in a long time that helps keep the oil at bay! You don't need much at all per application so it lasts a long time.
