Eh, it's alright.

I assume it does it's job however I saw no difference when using the elf primer. Suggestion: keep your money. It's not all it's hyped to be. Mostly just a brand name thing in my opinion.

In love. I love this primer. It keeps my makeup on all day like it should AND there isn't any creasing. It does make my skin a little oily but not too much. A little goes a long way with this product. It has lasted me literally FOREVER it's crazy! I started out with a sample size and that lasted me about half a year, when I decided just get a full size. So I did. Still lasting today. I got my mom hooked up on it too. She used the rest of the sample size and then got the full. This amazing product is from $15-$36 I believe, or at least it is at my Sephora.

I have heard a lot of great things about the Smashbox photo finish primer. However, my experience with using the primer was not all that great.

The texture of the primer has a silky, light weight texture to it. I did not find that it reduced the appearance of my pores. Within a week of using the primer my face broke out really bad. So it is safe to say that this is not a product I will be using again or would recommend.

Not great for oily skin

I thought it would help my makeup stay in place and help fill my pores but it doesn't really do that great of either job, I won't be re purchasing.

Not bad but definitely not crazy about it. I just notice no big difference once I have it on. Perhaps my expectations were way too high. It does help smithing the skin, but I'm guessing my regular moisturizer could do it all by it self. I'm pretty disappointed

I don't get the hype about this.

I like this, but I have tried much better primers. Apparently this one is the best seller and the king of primers but I honestly don't like it that much. It may be the silicone feel to it, there is one from Bare Minerals with the same feel but you REALLY see that one working. This I don't really see a difference in my makeup. I don't suggest going out and buying this.

disappointed

I wanted this so bad so I splurged and I got it. But after a week of using it I started breaking out. It was awful. It was a week ago and I an still recovering.

Not worth it.

I received this primer in a try it out box from Ulta along with a few other products. I do have to say it feels wonderful on the skin, ALONE. You could probably powder it and wear it like that but under foundation it looks disgusting. I applied it to have my face and then put my foundation on and the side I applied it to looked murky and swimming in gunk. Ive tried multiple ways to apply it and none made it any better. I do not recommend this gimmick.

Primer

I wasnt super impressed with this primer.
Pro: Smooth on application, Good for photos. Does reduce pores and smooth out skin in photos.
Con: Skin felt and looked oily after an hour, not meant for long lasting wear.
