This product did not work for me as in it didn't "decrease" my redness dramatically. It was very faint to see a difference. In my opinion, I would just purchase the original (MUFE HD neutral (0) primer). Thankfully, I did not break out and make up stayed on tact.
This primer is a great disappointment.
I thought it was able to reduce the redness due to acne scars, it does not.
But it makes my foundation last (a little bit) longer and my skin is not as oily as usual. And it's got a nice scent.
The pump gives you the right amount but this type of packaging doesn't allow you to finish all the product.
The price is actually not that bad since it's got a lot of product (€34,50 for 30ml at Sephora's).
However, I would not buy it again because there are probably better products on the market (that I'm dying to try out!).
Mediocre on many levels. I've used quite a few green-toned, redness-reducing products and this one didn't do well in that respect. This is probably due to the texture - very thin and runny as others have mentioned, and doesn't really seem to mesh with skin. Biggest problem was that it didn't do much for reducing my pores, and six hours into the day my face was an oil slick. Meh.
Figured after talking to the associate at Sephora that this was the primer for me since I have red undertones (pink whatever).
This primer doesn't help the redness at all. I don't like how liquid like this particular primer is. If you're for a high end color correcting primer I would not go for this one.
This was the first primer I ever tried. I like the Make Up Forever brand, so I decided to give their HD primers a try; another thing that appealed to me is that all their primers are oil-free. According the little "which primer is right for me?" wheel at my sephora store, the green shaded primer was best for me. I figured since I had redness from acne pimples and since my skin gets a reddish color when it's over-dried from my acne meds/creams, I'd go ahead and get the green. Word of advice: don't apply too much of this stuff if you have fair skin (especially around your eyebrows and upper lip area) because your face will turn a greenish hue! A little bit of this primer does a decent job of reducing the redness of my skin. It also goes on and blends very easily (provided you don't apply too much). The thing I didn't like about this primer is that is doesn't give my skin a flawless look after I apply make-up, and it doesn't help with keeping my make-up looking fresh. It is decent at keeping my skin just moisturized enough and didn't make my skin greasy (again, provided you don't use too much). Overall, it was an okay purchase for a first-time primer user, but I won't be purchasing this again because it's too expensive, and I've found better primers both at more and less expensive prices.
Like most of the reviewers here, I have natural redness primarily on my cheeks. I used to wear tinted moisturizers and the redness would always seep through. I've tried more full coverage foundations, and even that didn't work. I was recommended by a MUA to try this, I also tested the smashbox green one and the finished texture turned me off. Well, I can say I did not notice a single difference. I would recomend taking a sample before buying the whole thing.
This works ok. The best green primer for my oily skin is the green mineral powder primer from Everyday Minerals, however I can't wear that under liquid foundation. Because I don't wear mineral powder foundation in the winter, I had to find something that would work under liquid foundation. I think this does make a difference with my really red cheeks. However, if I use it every day on my T-zone it breaks me out. Not sure why because it's supposed to be oil free. If I avoid the forehead and chin, it works fairly well. I think it should work better for the price, however.
NC25 Chinese, reddish undertones, early 30s.
I was thinking, this is sooo cool, Green primer to even out my redness. For a few days, I would do half face w/ green, half w/ another primer or none at all...never noticed a difference in coloring at all as related to primer (so leave it to the foundation to do its job).
The texture is more of a moisturizer, unlke other primers I've used with the more velvetly feel. I would of rated 3 if this was a plain white primer as it's decent, but 2 as green doesn't seem to do anything at all except pysch you out.
I was undecided between this and the Smashbox's primer in green. I went to the nearest Sephora and asked for a sample of this. I didn't ask for a sample of the Smashbox primer because the lousy Sales Assistant gave me a dirty look.
Though turned off with the Sales Assistant's lousy attitude, I was glad that I managed to try this one out. Upon application of this primer, I noted that it goes on light and translucent. The green in this product is not opaque and blends into the skin. I thought to myself, thank goodness I didn't buy it.
But I was wrong, little did I expect myself to run to the store the very next day to buy the full sized bottle.
After application, I waited a few minutes for it to settle into my skin before I apply my Dior 4x control powder. The powder melted into my skin and covered all the redness which the powder didn't had the ability to on its own. A few hours on, my makeup still remained fresh and nice despite the oiliness on my face.
I tried it with my MAC pro longwear liquid foundation and Clinique's Superfit over the next few days, it didn't perform so well with liquid foundation however, I noted that the makeup stayed on longer than usual.
I would definitely repurchase this product!
I get really bright red cheeks and red patches on my face sometimes so I purchased this green primer a while ago and I was really excited to try it out because the sales woman that sold it to me said that it would pretty much get rid of my bright red face. But sadly this was not the case. When I put it on it dried and tightened my skin so much i could hardly move! But even worse, it turned my face a yellowy-green color and didn't blend in at all and I STILL had bright red cheeks. The green smashbox primer is pretty much exactly the same. I couldn't use this at all and I gave it to my mom to try it and it did the same thing to her. This was a total waist of money for me and I wouldn't buy it again. The only thing that's really helped with my redness that I could recommend is a redness reduction primer from MAC and a really good coverage foundation...and also using a really good cleanser and toner.
