It was definitely a fake. It smelt of petrol. Irritated my skin. I have used smash box photo finish primer before and had the real version at home. This one is definitely a fake. Do not buy!

I saw the other review and thought maybe she received a dud but it happened to me as well. It smelled like gasoline, was very loose and watery and caused my face to get red where the product was applied instantly and it left red bumps on my face within SECONDS of my putting it on. It also burned so I washed my face immediately with cleanser to make sure whatever that stuff was, came off. I had to apply my foundation thicker than normal to hide the redness until my face calmed down. I thought maybe the smell was just off and it was me so that's why I proceeded to put it on until I discovered that the product is not the real product at all.

My daughter has one that I bought for her from Sephora in person and the product is night and day from what I received from this seller. I've used this product before with NO irritation and it certainly didn't smell like gasoline. A lot of sellers are selling fake products here on Amazon so be aware and compare your new purchases to what you already have at home.

I purchased this product from True-Beauty and I see within one day that the seller has changed.

So the primer works great, but I have super sensitive (and super oily) skin so it does make me break out at times. It doesn't completely control oil but using this with blotting papers throughout the day keeps my makeup semi-fresh looking for 8 hours. I have yet to find the perfect product...but this one certainly helps the battle against oil and makeup melt.

A few things before I divulge on how much I love this primer.
I do have combination skin, primarily oily. Moderate acne, especially on my cheeks. Make-up: I use a mixture of Clinique Tinted Moisture Surge, Alamay, and Bare Minerals.

This stuff works. I was really skeptical, especially because of the price point. The other primers I have used are Victoria's Secret Primer and Bare Minerals' Primer. I decided to try Smashbox's since a friend recommended it to see the difference.

It. Sure. Does. First of all, it evens out the texture of my face. I definitely can see and feel it. It helps my make up go on smoother and stay on. The primer is really lightweight and does not affect my acne at all (ok, the first week it did take my face a while to get use to, so I did break out a little bit. Meaning like two small white heads, but nothing too dramatic). After an 8 hour day at work wearing a full face of make-up, it still is on. How do I know? Because when I take a make-up remover wipe to my face, all of it is on it, haha.

This primer is definitely worth it. A definite top 3 in my book. It helps even out your facial texture, keep your make-up on, and makes it also look evenly textured.

Since first using a primer I have been unable to go back, and this Smashbox Photo Finish primer is probably my favorite. I tried a sample and fell in love with the silky texture, totally not greasy, which provides a thin veil over the skin to make foundation glide on smoothly. It helps concealer not to crease under eyes during the day, and it makes foundation and blush appear much more even and almost air-brushed compared to not using it. I use a powder foundation applied with a kabuki brush, and it goes on much better with this primer than on bare skin. Some primers tend to feel greasy or take a while to set, but not Smashbox. I highly recommend it!

Ifyou are starting to get those fine lines around your eyes or you have large pores (I have both0 this stuff is AMAZING...covers it right up and only takes a tiny amt for the whole face so it's definitely worth the price!

I had seen a makeup video on youtube and really wanted to try this Primer out. It feels odd when applying it but a little seems to go a long way. You can really feel it cover your skin very well. I dont use make up very much, more so on the nights I go out. I have fairly clear healthy skin and I like to keep as much (chemical wise) off of my skin unless its needed. Ive used it about 4 times in a three week period and ive liked the results. It appears it helps to give foundation a smoother appearance compared to other brands I have bought from regular stores in my area. I also bought an air brush foundation but it seemed no matter what I did, that it didnt work as great as how it was show in the youtube video. So I used it with liquid foundation I have used in the past, bought from the store and it looked great, made my skin look flawless.

I do love this product only thing that is an issue for me is texture. Feels kind of like a smoother Vaseline to my fingers but once its applied and done on my face it doesnt bother me at that point. This is one of those things that feels really odd to the touch, but dont hold that against this product it really is a great primer. I had bought two in my order before even trying it, and very glad I did.

Best Primer hands down. I've tried loads of primers, I'm a makeup-aholic. It's smoothing, long wearing, soft, soaks into the skin. Smashbox always continually impress me with their face primers. This is their pièce de résistance of primers for sure.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this product!! I won't leave the house without this on... EVER! Leaves a nice silky feeling and makes foundation glide on easier. I use less foundation and brighteners because of this product so it also helps on the cost of products!

I recently started using Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation and really like it. I searched the internet and Amazon had the best price. I received the product as pictured and in a timely manner.
