        I have oilu/dry combo skin. My eyelids always get oily, and my eye shadow sweats off. I've tried multiple products over the years, including the other Smashbox eyelid primer. I like the other Smashbox eyelid primer (photo finish lid primer), and it gave my lids a smooth look for the days I didn't want to wear shadow, but on hot days or long days, my shadow would still crease.

        This product is pretty incredible. I have had incredibly long days where I've been hot, stressed, sweaty, etc., and I am shocked to see my shadow is still in place. There has been only one long day where I noticed creases. Pretty impressed.

        Recently, I purchased the new 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer. The first time I used it, I applied too much - it took several applications to find the right amount. (This product feels WAX LIKE) The trick is applying a THIN layer, being mindful of not getting it anywhere else. Honestly, I prefer the original shadow primer with the sponge applicator over this new product.

        I can't stress this enough - this product really works. I have the type of eyelids where regardless of what eye shadow I use, by noon I have shadow half way up my eye and a bunch of product in the crease of my lids. This product is a lifesaver! It keeps my eye lids matte for a full 24 hours and keeps my eye shadow put! The silky formula evens out the skin and preps the eyelids perfectly for shadow application. I've tried other shadow primers and nothing comes close to Smashbox's. Also, you really don't need a lot of product so one tube goes a long way! I've repurchased this product between 5-10 times and will continue to do so based on how well it works.

        If you experience any product build up in the creases of your eye lids you really must try this product.

        I received the trial size in the Smashbox Try-It Primer Kit and I love it! I had never really been interested in trying other eyeshadow primers after using my go-to primer, but I figured I would still try it for variety's sake. It worked great, made my shadow stay, and felt a little more lightweight than my go-to. I recommend it!

        Brief primer of the product: it absolutely sucks.

        Comments about smashbox Photo Finish 24-Hour Shadow Primer:

        I bought this at Sephora the other day in need of an eye shadow thinking "well, I mean smashbox has got to be good!" I put I on this morning while getting ready for work, excited to try it out for the first time. I started off with some black for a subtle smokey eye and it was sticking to my lid pretty good! Then again, I hadn't started blending yet. I went to the other eye and put some shadow on, being a little harder with the application of it because for some reason it wasn't working as well. I ended up pressing so hard on my eyelids that the primer started smearing and clumping weirdly. My eyelid ended up looking uneven and absolutely disgusting. I tried taking it off with makeup wipes but it was stuck to my eyelid like glue. I had to take a rough towel and scrub it off. My eyes were dried out afterwords and hurting like crazy. This product is horrible. Dont buy it.

        This is the only thing I have used so far that keeps my eyeshadow and concealer from creasing by the end of my day (7am-10pm). My skin is very dry, so I put on eye moisturizer a little heavy and give it a minute. Then I use about 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch and work it between two fingers until it softens a little, and use it on both top & bottom lids. I go on to something else at this point so this can have a few minutes to set, or else eye shadow will cling very heavily to it. But once it has set, I do my upper eye makeup and then concealer. Paired with the matte palette, this makes my eye area look great all day & not budge. It's a must for me because it prevents anything from creasing and shifting into the fine lines around my eyes.

        I would alway hate doing my eyes only to have the shadow crease and slide off. This product has taken all my fears away! I have work a 16 hour day and it never budged.

        This is easily the best eye shadow primer I've ever tried. Beautiful silky texture, flawless finish, long-lasting, stays matte but velvety looking and doesn't crease or settle into lines like other popular shadow primers. I've got weird combination dry and oily lids and this primer is a dream. Great quality product. Soooo happy.

        I have oily skin, and this primer has never let me down! Not one crease in over a year of use. It is thick, and a little goes a long way. Be careful to only get a small amount from the tube even though it comes out quickly.

        Eyeshadow stays put all day

        By 

        from Nashville

        Comments about smashbox Photo Finish 24-Hour Shadow Primer:

        This really helps my eyeshadow stay put all day! It's a little tricky to put on because it takes a few minutes to set, and I like to apply a generous amount of eye cream beforehand because I use this on both the lid and under eye as well. But if I take the time my eyeshadow lasts and it helps tremendously with preventing creasing. A little goes a long way too!
