      I am absolutely in love with this prime water. At first, I must confess being skeptical and all that it took to change my view on it was to wear it on half my face for a full day, I know it sounds a little extreme, but after that, I was convinced! Having combination skin can make things tricky, even during winter months. My makeup, no matter how I apply, ends up "melting" away on the oiliest areas of my face, nothing I've tried worked... Then I found this heavenly liquid, all bottled up and ready to be sprayed!

      Prime water kept my makeup in check for 12 hours!
      I use it daily as a primer and as a finishing mist.
      Thank you smashbox for making this available!

      The concept of having a water-based prime is great. However, I find it doesn't help with applying my foundations nor fixing the makeup. The positive side is that it works wonderful as a toner and I feel comfy and fresh with the mist. But if you are willing to spend the same amount of money you can find a pretty decent toner which may have way larger volume than this one. So if you are curious about the new product and want to have a try, do so; but if you just need a prime, stick to the traditional one.

      Great as a primer but better as a setting spray.

      Comments about smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water:

      This product is a must have. It keeps my in place all day, and it lasts for quite a long time making it value for money. I only use it as a setting spray and not a primer because it obviously works better as a setting spray.

      Love this as a make up setting spray!

      Comments about smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water:

      I received the travel size and I tried it has a primer and it did not work for me. So I tried it as a setting spray and I fell in love with it. I had to order the full bottle before I finished the travel size one. Feels refreshing and I use it once or twice throughout the day. Would give it 5 stars if it wasn't pricey.

      I fell in love with smashbox primers, actually all of their products. I recommend them to everyone. I only wear smashbox. I switched from Mac three years ago.

      Comments about smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water:

      I got this primer water in the Try It: Primer Authority Kit and was pleasantly surprised. I found that this product works best as a primer on my combination skin, but I found it just didn't feel like my go-to setting spray and my makeup didn't quite stay as long as I thought it would. Use as a primer!

      I actually got this as a free sample, and it is awesome! I have oily skin this is surprisingly great for mattifying your skin. And it still is a great primer for helping your foundation to go on smooth. I'm so glad I got this free sample because this is my new favorite primer (and I've tried almost all of Smashbox's primers).

      Absolute fav

      By

      Comments about smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water:

      Fast absorbing, super lightweight, i use this when my face feels a bit dry and it works wonders. It gets the foundation on so smoothly and my face looks hydrated. The scent is fresh, which doesnt always happen with most sprays, extends wear time and is now my daily essential.

      A world of change

      By 

      from Detroit Michigan

      Comments about smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water:

      I have been curious about this product for awhile and was so excited to try it out! Honestly made a better impression on me then I thought it would. I feel like my face is more hydrated and was able to use a thinner layer of primer and my make up has already lasted two hours longer than it normally does. I'm in love!

      Great!!

      By 

      from Mississauga, Ontario

      Comments about smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water:

      My skin is super picky when it comes to makeup and for a year I've been trying to find a primer that doesn't make me greasy, dry me out, or make my skin feel tight. I was iffy about this working since it is just water but it really does work! I have oily skin in my T zone but also very dry skin in the same area and my makeup doesn't budge when I have this on. I work long hours in a hot restaurant and can get a little sweaty, but this stuff keeps my makeup looking good all night.
