ProduCt.ReViEw. -SmaShBoX.PhoToFinisH.Lid.PriMer.

The product: Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer
Claim to fame: "Create the perfect canvas for shadow application with this ultra-luxurious lid primer. Just like our best selling, award-winning face primer, this vitamin-packed formula glides on and instantly smoothes and perfects lids. Wear it alone for a flawless natural eye or under any shadow to give it the staying power to withstand anything (even the occasional all-nighter). 
This revolutionary formula contains Phytomoist™, a plant-based hyaluronic acid for ultimate moisturization plus skin perfecting amino acids. Soft focus pearls help diminish the appearance of fine lines and discoloration on the lids, while the patented delivery system ensures effective results." SmashboxIngredientsIsododecane, Hydrogenated Coco-Glycerides, Beeswax, Silica, Boron Nitride, Quaternium-90 Bentonite, Talc, Microcrystalline Wax, Propylene Carbonate, Cetyl PEG/PPG10/1 Dimethicone, Hexyl Laurate, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Phenoxyethanol, PEG-12 Glyceryl DiMyristate, Water, Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate, Betaine, Glycerin, Potassium Sorbate, Tremella Fuciformis Sporocarp Extract. May Contain: Titanium Dioxide, Iron oxide
Pros: Easy to apply with perfect shaped applicator. It is blend able and matches any skin tone when blended. Wear alone to give a bright highlighted nude lid that is matte. Keeps eyeshadow creaseproof and smudge proof all day long. Allows pigment from shadow to intensify. Makes blending effortless. Contains 12 peptides that actually firm the eyelid. If you wear it under liner, it helps it to not smudge!!
Cons: Sometimes I think there isn't much in the tube.... usually lasts me 3 months, which I guess is not bad but if it were bigger would be great.
The bottom line: My favourite to date lid primer for shadows. I wear it every day as an eyeshadow and when I wear eyeshadow it's always underneath. It is the best one that I have tried and is a staple in my makeup routine.
Price: $22 CAD
Rating: 5/5

Thanks for the review :) I haven't used this before and it does look pretty small from the packaging.
