Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Review

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer

Hello Everyone!

How are you all? Today's review is on the well known primer in the beauty industry and that is the Photo Finish foundation primer by Smashbox.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer

I got this primer in the Smashbox Try Me Kit I blogged about earlier in the week and this was the product I was itching to try the most.

This foundation primer is a transparent gel and has a smooth silky consistency.  The formulation is oil free so it doesn't make your skin greasy and applies well on my combination skin. This primer doesn't seem to have a smell and it is easy to quickly smooth it over your face to prep it for the application of your foundation. It really does glide over your skin and is a lovely product to work with.


I always apply primers with my finger tips because you use so little it isn't really worth using a brush.  Also, you're not looking at buffing or blending it into your skin so it is fine to use your hands.  I don't have to use loads of this product to get the coverage I want but because it is something I will definitely use everyday and I will be covering my whole face it is a makeup product you use up quicker than others. Therefore, do I think this primer is worth the hype and the expensive price tag of £25.00?

My answer is YES! I find that this primer makes my skin smoother so my foundation applies better and it makes my makeup stay on for longer (I always use setting spray too, though). I would definitely buy this primer in the larger size and I would be happy to use it every day.


You can buy the Smashbox Photo Finish primer from Boots for £25.00 but if it order it from the Smashbox website (for the same price) you may get an extra free sample thrown in :)

Have you tried this primer?

  1. I never got on with any Smashbox products. I tried their colour correcting primer and it was absolutely horrible on my skin! Haven't tried this one but I think I've been put off Smashbox in general xx

    1. Oh no! How disappointing! I'm sorry to hear you had a bad experience. When that happens it does totally put you off a brand. X

  4. I've wondered about this primer. Does it help with oiliness?

    1. The only oily area I really get is on my nose and I did notice it reduced. I hardly had to use any powder at all throughout the day. I'm not sure how it would work if more areas of your face are oily though, I assume the same. x

  7. I have been wanting to try this product for so long but haven't really got on well with primers so was reluctant to spend £25 for it to be another no!

  8. I've heard so many good things about their primers. I've never used anything actually by smashbox, but I know it is supposed to be top notch. I might have to treat myself this weekend :) x
