About smashbox

Created. Tested. Photographed. At smashbox Studios L.A.

It all began when brothers Dean and Davis Factor — two unique entrepreneurs and great-grandsons of makeup legend Max Factor — created smashbox Studios in 1990. With a slew of A-listers passing through the photo studios daily, Dean and Davis were often asked to develop makeup that met the demanding needs of a shoot. So the two combined talents — Dean being a business guru with an MBA and Davis being a leading celebrity/fashion photographer — to launch smashbox Cosmetics in 1996.

In the years that followed, their expertise in photography, fashion, and beauty turned smashbox into a hub of culture. The studios have served as the official home to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in L.A., and high-profile film and music events continue to be held here.

Today, the state-of the-art facility is still inundated with the most sought-after photographers, celebs, models, and makeup artists.

smashbox Photo Finish Luminizing Foundation Primer 3 5 5 5
bad substitution Like a prior reviewer, I liked Smashbox's old bronzer. I'm 65 and have good skin and few deep wrinkles. I do not wear full makeup for everyday, just a primer. In the summer I liked the Smashbox bronze primer over others because, unlike other bronzers , it didn't have gold or orangey tones. My skin has blue/pink undertones, not yellow, so the color was just right. I don't want to be "luminized", 03-28-12
LUMINOUS SKIN My friend and doctor told me she hated me because my skin is so gorgous! Let me tell you, my skin is slightly bumpy and slightly red although I take excellent care of it. I wear the Smashbox Luminizing Primer on top of my moisturizer and Laua Geller Tinted Spackle. I do not cover with anything else...particularly flour (foundations and powder) I'm a good looking mature woman with healthy glowing skin. My only negative is that the luminizer is a bit dark for my lighter winter skin. Would like to have the product one shade lighter. 03-25-12
just not the same why, why, why did Smashbox discontinue their bronzing primer? why, why, why does every manufacturer of bronzing primer think that EVERYONE wants 'luminosity' in their bronzer? We're not all 25 with perfect skin; some of us have things we don't need HIGHLIGHTED with shine!! I'm sure this is a very nice bronzer for the under 30s in the crowd but for us 'classic' girls, please, please, please return our old favorite. 03-12-12
Not the best product :( Works nice as a standard primer, but did not see any 'Luminizing' properties. Just get the regular primer, and apply a luminizer seperate. 09-10-11
Awesome product This product is perfect alone or covered with concealer or makeup. It gives a natural illuminating tint to the face. I will reorder for sure. Perfect foundation and primer. It gives you that glow but nothing obvious. Try it. 08-22-11
