Photo Finish Primerizer

1.0 oz Item 2513703

Primer + moisturizer in one! It delivers 24-hour hydration plus powerful primer benefits in the lightest possible texture.

Primerizer instantly increases moisture by 127% and preps skin for makeup in one step. The non-greasy, quick-dry formula sets in seconds, acting as a makeup magnet that locks on foundation and makes it last. It plumps and moisturizes with niacinamide (which improves skin's vitality and barrier repair) and hyaluronic acid (a molecule that holds water within the skin to prevent moisture loss). Primerizer also smoothes skin, softens dry fine lines and stops makeup from settling into pores.

In a consumer study, after 1 use:
  • 97% said it feels lightweight
  • 87% said skin felt instantly hydrated
  • 91% said their makeup went on flawlessly

In a consumer study, after 1 week of use:

  • 88% said it helped makeup look good
  • 88% said it helped makeup last all day
  • 89% said their skin felt hydrated throughout the day

Bring back the original formula and packaging

Pros

  • Goes On Smoothly
  • Long Lasting
  • Moisturizes Well
  • Runny

Cons

  • Doesn't Absorb Well
  • Poor packaging design

Best Uses

  • Daily Use

Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer:

Product is very runny (moreso than the original photo finish primer, which I love) and takes longer to absorb into my skin. Product comes in a glass bottle (I prefer the plastic tube) with a pump. This makes it impossible to control how much product is released with each pump...essentially wasting product. (With the plastic tube you could control how much product was released, therefore reducing waste) Product does moisturize as described...I just prefer the original formula / packing. I will use this until I empty the bottle and then try another primer...from Smashbix or another brand.

      I love this product! I have the worst dry skin and I notice most primers accentuate the flakes on my face. This primer absorbs quickly and a little goes a long way! It really helps my makeup last all day and those dry flakes are gone!

        Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer:

        This was my first time ever buying this product & I have to say that it actually surprised me. I have insanely dry skin so this product along with exfoliating is amazing. It is extremely lightweight and absorbs quickly. I definitely notice a difference when I apply foundation. I was using the Too Faced Hangover primer previously (didn't have any problems with that product either, still a fav), but I feel like I find myself reaching for this product more than my hangover primer. Would definitely recommend to my girls with dry skin.

            This product is runny, but I absolutely love it. My skin is always very dry, to the point where I get dry patches on even my eyelids, and the hyaluronic acid really helps keep my skin moisturized throughout the day.

                I apply after cleansing my face to moisturize and prime prior to applying foundation. It really makes my face look smooth and natural. Not oily at all and keeps my nose from appearing dry cakey and peeling.
