Smashbox Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer

First thing I have to say about this primer is wow, the name is a mouth full. Second, it is truly a fabulous primer, however, it is a terrible color corrector. Despite being a green color corrector I found that this product did not cover up any redness in my skin at all, so I am going to take points off of the product for that as it was intended as a color correcting primer.

Now if you look at this just as a primer, its amazing. The Photo Finish Primer from Smashbox is not greasy and does not have that silicone feel to it that other primers have. I can see minimal pore coverage as well when using this but I don't believe that it truly has any noticeable effects to the naked eye.(I use a magnified mirror). If I am looking to cover my pores I will use Benefit Porefessional in my areas of need and use Smashbox on the rest of my face.

If you are looking for a product to cover up your redness, I would recommend Nyx Conclealer Wand in Green. I love this conclealer and use it on a daily basis for any redness and it covers it right up, plus its cost effective and Nyx is cruelty free product from the drugstore so its a plus!
Price: $50
