My eyelids and have a thing for shimmery Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer in Golden Nude ($20). Released earlier this summer with the Smasbox Naked Beauty collection, the products is supposed to act as a moisturizing base for powder and cream shadows to extend wear time and boost their vibrancy while making fine lines harder to spot.
The new color’s a riff on Smasbox’s standard issue warm beige Photo Finish Lid Primer, and the second I swatched it my heart went bumpity-bump!

LOVE the texture and how it looks, but sadly it hasn’t done much to increase the staying power of the eyeshadows I’ve tried it with. Plus, with it on I see creases and exaggerated fine lines by noon, and it’s all but gone by the end of the day.
To help my shadows last longer, I think I’ll stick to Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin. It’s a similar shimmery golden nude, but it kills it when it comes to locking shadows into place. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: C
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Sorry I’m a little late to the party today (got carried away playing with some stuff from Boots). What did I miss?
