I absolutely love this primer. It works for me in reducing the redness in my skin.
At the end of the day, my UD Naked BB looks as good as when I applied it in the morning. I would definitely repurchase.
I use this to cover up my the redness in my T zone, and it's a really good and effective primer. It blends into my skin really well and cancels out the redness without giving me a sickly complexion. Does a good job keeping the foundation from slipping off my oily face, too.
What I find problematic was the packaging: the pump sometimes gets stuck and I would have to turn the nozzle to the right "notch" before being able to dispense the product. Sometimes I miss the notch spot and end up pumping out way too much primer that I don't need.
I think investing in a good foundation primer is very important, so I will be buying this again in the future.
Only tried it a few times so I will update again in couple of weeks.
Packaging: Excellent. Very easy to control pump, sleek and tall. Skinny so its not very bulky.
Smell: I never knew why reviewers made such a big deal of the smell of products. Until I tried some and the smell was so awful it bugged me. I cant describe the awful scent of this, its so disgusting when you first apply it. After its blended in you no longer smell it.
Consistency: Thin yet not quite watery. Inbetween thick and thin, just right.
Claim: Claims it reduces redness and makes fdnt stay on longer. You dont see a big or little difference in redness. My fdnt feels and looks same as when I dont wear a primer.
This has not made my skin break out yet, which is a plus. But I wouldnt repurchase this. I dont see a difference in my MU when I do or dont wear primer. A waste.
This product is a life saver for me. I have red on some parts of my face, I have sensitive, oily, easily congested skin and this works MIRACLES. I feel a lot more confident when I go out with this on, it is green but it blends it beautifully with the skin, it gives that no makeup makeup look. My face is way more even after using it, so I need less foundation. Love it so much, I told all my friends about what I have been using! Would recommend it to everybody!
Update: I'll not be purchasing this. After a few days of use, my skin wound up irritated and unhappy. No.
I'm still testing it but I wanted to write a quick review:
This has toned down the overall redness of my face. I tried it for the last two days and thought it didn't do anything but today when I used a different primer, I could see the difference under my MUFE HD foundation immediately. I am much pinker today in pictures than I was yesterday.
It's not going to work magic on red spots. You'll need a green concealer or something thick and awesome for those. This is good for overall redness, especially on us super pale girls.
This didn't neutralize much red at all, to my disappointment. My pores and fine lines seemed the same too. Maybe I applied it wrong? At least it felt smooth and light...
I have purchased this product expecting results. I did not achieve them. I was told by a Sephora consultant that this product would help cover redness. It doesn't do what its advertised as. I found it very thin and fragrancy. It made my face extremely pale and made my make-up cake. I'm completely disappointed in this. for the price I paid I wasn't expecting some coverage but in return just wasted my money. I do not recommend this product at all! I'm still slightly annoyed I now have to spend more money on a product that actually works. Read the reviews people before you buy makeup, it could save you time and money in the long run.
As a primer, this works really well. I wore it under my makeup today and after hours in a hot kitchen, by a stove and just running around on a crazy day (christmas with family) my makeup stayed in place. As far a color correcting...I really can't say that it helped any with my redness. I am always red right around my nose and mouth and honestly, I didn't see any difference. Not even a slight diminish/fade in redness. So for that aspect it didn't do what it's suppose to. Maybe I need to wait a bit to let it settle before seeing any difference? I was in a bit of rush putting myself together this morning. I'll try it again and will change the rating if that is the case. For me, this primer is okay. If it did help with my redness I'd move it to the top, otherwise I much prefer my Hourglass veil primer
I've tried different primers and found this one to be nearly the best for a color corrector.
Positives: smooth application, filled in pores, covered redness, made my face look bright and fresh with little touch up throughout the day, looked great under my bare minerals foundation.
Negatives: made my face break out
Outcome: Still searching for a primer like this one, that won't cause breakouts on my sensitive skin.
This was so-so. It was better than nothing under foundation, but I prefer a primer that glides on smoothly like Bare Escentuals or Sephora brand. Also, I was hoping the green tint would tone down my acne scars under foundation, but I didn't really notice a difference.
