Review & Swatches: Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer

Hey Guys,

Happy weekend lovelies 😀 Today’s post will be a review on the Smashbox Photo Finish Hyrdating Under Eye Primer that I received in my goodie bag at a recent event ($29). Its available in the US via or and for my Brits via Unfortunately it’s not longer available in Denmark but can be purchased here through


According to Smashbox:

“This breakthrough, ultrahydrating formula primes the undereye area while reducing the look of fine lines, puffiness, wrinkles, age spots, and dark circles. Smooth under eyes before makeup application or wear alone for instant brightening. Its soothing qualities improve skin texture and tone, and unlike moisturizer, this silky primer prevents concealer from slipping off and settling into fine lines.

What else you need to know:
This product is infused with antiaging, good-for-your-eyes ingredients such as caffeine, peptides, and optical diffusers”.

The packaging for this product is pretty standard. It’s housed in a plastic tube (very similar to the Juicy Tubes by Lancome). A pea sized amount of product is enough for both eyes and with one little squeeze you get the perfect amount. A little really goes a long way. Just dab and tap and voila it’s basically disappeared into the skin.

The texture and consistency of this product is super nice. It’s a tad thicker then your average eye cream yet blends out smoothly and seamlessly. The finish is great as well. It blends in to the skin with ease, evens out skin tone and preps/primes the area for your foundation or concealer. And it definitely does a great job at, hydrating, preventing creasing, brightening and evening out skin tone.


10/10 for this amazing product. Smashbox does it again with this unique formula. Although a bit pricey a little goes a long way, hydrates the under eye area, yet stops concealer creasing. I can honestly say it has helped with the longevity of my under eye make up too. Its also fabulous to wear on it’s own, it just instantly brightens, tightens and evens the under eye area in one quick swipe. This product is definitely one of my everyday musts and will be for a very long time to come.

Have any of you tried this amazing product? I’m really loving Smashbox at the moment…what are you favorite Smashbox products?
