I have been using this product for years, and will never buy a different primer, though I have purchased primers from almost every line out there. For me it works better than even Urban Decay, Too Faced, Tarte, Benefit, Bare Escentuals, etc. It goes on in a light nude color, is creamy to blend and then settles to a matte finish that simply won't budge. Shadows blend on it very easily and stay put ALL DAY. The colors of your shadow are magnified and the pigments are rich and true. You can blend with a brush easily but once you are done it won't move. I have oily eyes and they crease with other primers, but with this they don't crease at all, even 10 hours in. I use any gentle eye remover, and my eyes are never dry or irritated. For cons, I think this tint won't work on everyone since the product is thick - I am caucasian with fair/medium skin, so it works on me but probably not on darker skin tones. Note: there are a few products I feel are almost as good as this, and I'll explain their pros and cons: Too Faced (works perfectly and is more sheer; but is harder to remove; and creases itself, so you have to blend it); Bare Escentuals also works really well but is harder to remove. I personally don't want to use a harsher eye makeup remover daily.

This product looks like it would have some pink in it -- no way. It is an awful bright beige color that goes on really thick - not subtle at all. There's no way I could wear this without covering it with eyeshadow. Didn't see any improvement in smoothing the eyelid for shadow. My normal eye cream performs better than this product.

    Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer, .08 fl oz:

    I was always skeptical about needing an eye makeup primer, until I tried this. I am extremely oily and this keeps my eyeshadow in place all day. I have also worn to the beach with waterproof mascara (with no shadow) for a natural look. Highly recommend.

      Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer, .08 fl oz:

      Great Primer. It really keeps your shadow in place or just apply the primer with eyeliner for a simple, but finished look. It really helps with the eye shadows in pencil form, which are impossible to keep on.

          Tried so many lid primers and this is the best. Smashbox face primer is a little more expensive than many competitors but it is the best and worth it. No, I don't work for the company!

                I usually love Smashbox but this product is really bad. It goes on like a thick mess and doesn't blend well at all and after a few hours my eye make up still creases and comes off.

                    I have tried a wide variety of eyeshadow bases and this is "THE" worst. It creases in a matter of minutes always, don't apply smoothly, and is not versatile for a variety of skin complexions. I feel horrible that I bought it and have no one to give it to like a little girl who loves to play in makeup. I would throw it in the trash but all I see is my money being thrown away so I only use it when I want to practice using different eyeshadow styles and will wipe off immediately.

                    Ladies, do not wear this out in public because you will look absolutely crazy and will be embarrassed. I'm glad to share this information to save many people from a hugh disappointment.
