 What is Smashbox Hydrating Under Eye Primer?

The Smashbox Photo Finish Under Eye Primer has been created to keep your makeup under your eyes looking fresh and flawless all day. This product has been infused with ten benefits to address everyday eye woes. This product is also infused with anti-ageing ingredients such as caffeine, peptides and optical diffusers. Plus, it keeps concealer looking fresh-never cakey or settled into fine lines so eyes will always look well-rested. 10 under-eye benefits, 1 primer breakthrough for hydration, dark circles, puffiness, radiance, fine lines and wrinkles, texture, skin tone, age spots, clarity, soothing.

It comes in a long thin tube with the classic Smashbox branding. The product itself has pink colour with a bit of shimmer and has a cream like consistency.

How do you apply Smashbox Hydrating Under Eye Primer?

You can wear it alone to instantly brighten your undereye area. You can also wear under concealer to keep it looking fresher and better. Unlike moisturiser, this silky primer texture prevents concealer from slipping off and settling into fine lines.

I firstly apply my favourite face primer all over my face. Then I take two dots of Smashbox Photo Finish Under Eye Primer and I moisturise my undereye area. I let the product soak into my skin for a couple of minutes before applying foundation.

What do I like Smashbox Hydrating Under Eye Primer?

For me, this product works great! I find that it is super hydrating and really does help my concealer to stop creasing. This product does not get rid of fine lines or dark circles. However, it was not created for such purposes. I really do feel like this product works and does do what it says it is going to. I like to take an extra step to hydrating my skin as my skin is ageing!

Where can you Smashbox Hydrating Under Eye Primer?

You can purchase Smashbox Photo Finish Under Eye Primer, £21 from any Smashbox kiosk in Boots or online at

    I love Smashbox! I just recently discovered the Photo Finish Primer and I’m obsessed! I’ll have to check this under eye primer out! Sometimes that’s where I have problems with makeup creasing. Thanks for sharing!

    Amazing review! I have never tried an under eye primer. I rarely remember to use face or eye primer, but when I remember it’s a nice experience.

    I’m going to have to look into this. I’ve started noticing my concealer settling in lines later on as the day progresses. Granted I don’t put on a primer so seemingly that is my problem!

    Nice review. I haven’t heard of the under eye primer. I’ve been using the Smashbox makeup primer and really like it.
