Photo Finish Primer Water

SKU: 51608820



Wake up your makeup! Think priming benefits, hydration and sheer radiance--all in just 1 spritz! Primer water is free of silicone, alcohol and oil, but it's packed with revitalizing electrolytes to wake up skin and restore moisture--like a supercharged energy drink for your skin. Passed through positive energy fields during the production process, our enriched water instantly absorbs into skin for lasting hydration (and when skin is hydrated, makeup looks better).


Back in 2000, Smashbox founder and photographer Davis Factor developed our iconic Photo Finish Foundation Primer to help makeup look better and last longer on shoots.
Fast forward 15 years and a new icon is born: Photo Finish Primer Water. It's everything you love about the original primer in our lightest, purest, most refreshing form imaginable.
From the silky-smooth texture of the original, to the super-fine mist of this new water, now there's a primer for everyone.

  • Loving this product. 1/25/2017

    This product truly makes my make-up look fresher, more natural and last longer when I use it as a primer. My base applies so much easier with this product, and it prevents streaks. No longer does my eye make-up run. I love this and will definitely be adding it to my skin collection.

  • Favourite Primer 8/25/2016

    This is my favourite primer - lightweight and hydrating. Excellent base for foundation and smells lovely and fresh. Winner!

  • Pump action perfection! 8/22/2015

    This is revolutionary. The primer water sprays a fine mist, ensuring that the product is distributed evenly. With no blotchiness, this hydrates and adds radiance to my skin and preps it for foundation. They I spray it again all over to lock in my make up. A bit bulky to carry in your handbag though. Worth the money.

  • Just what your face needs! 8/20/2015

    I absolutely adore most of the Smashbox primers and the Photo Finish Primer Water does not disappoint! It absorbs into your skin so quickly that you don't have to wait before applying foundation, and really does create a great canvas for foundation, just like the other primers. I love that this can be used as a setting spray as well, or a little makeup refresher during the warmer days.

  • So Good 8/18/2015

    Wow. This can be used in sooo many ways. Before makeup. After makeup. To refresh during the day. Keeps my makeup locked on my face. Really very good.

  • Thirsty? Yes please 8/13/2015

    I suffer with dehydrated skin and I use this to both prime and set my makeup. It gives my skin a boost of moisture and I'm not left flaking halfway through the day. A bit pricey but definitely worth it
