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.

Applies smoothly, covers my redness (pale sensitive skin, with redness on nose and cheeks) but don't layer too much or can rub off altogether. Surprised to see it doesn't cover redness for others, but it works for me! Not an all over primer though.
Sometimes if i concentrate too much on one area of mu face, the green seeps thru the foundation, so apply thinly and sparingly for good effect! The bottle lasts long- dropped it two times, and had to screw the pump back on but its fine now. Been using it for almost 2.5 years now and still have half a bottle left! When it runs out gonna try the Blue primer, heard it's great for pale skin as well :)

This product is highly price and didn't work for me at all! I did notice that it kept my makeup on longer but did not serve its actual purpose, which was to correct the redness on my face. I will not be purchasing this product again and I highly suggest getting a sample to try out, before making a purchase you might regret.

Shocked with such low reviews others are giving this product. Seriously? For me, this is just divine. I now can't imagine being without it. Prior to purchasing, I was primer-less for over a month and let me tell you, it was uncomfortable. I've tried Smashbox, MAC and Benefit and found myself repurchasing twice Benefit's That Gal -if only for the fresh smell and that my face felt light and refreshed with it. I was about to try Stila's One Step Correct Primer (that colorful twirl cheatingly lured me in) but after trying from its tester, I'm glad I didn't purchase it. Headed to Make Up For Ever and got its primer in Green shade. While my fiance drives, I tried this one and whoa, was I amazed. And was he amazed too! He loved my face to death and kissed me like he didn't care what was on the road! It DID lessen my minor redness (redness comes from being exposed under the sun, not much acne), the smell was heavenly, and my face felt instantly smooth after (imagine a week after a diamond peel kind of smooth). I love it. No breakouts after, in fact, maybe I've been sleeping longer this past weeks or it's this product --but my face just got smoother. I love it. I just love it. For those who didn't feel their redness lessen, well, maybe your acne is just too much and it's time to consult a Dermatologist. Don't expect this to cover your zit nest.

This product is just "ok". For the price, I expected a lot more out of my primer. It did feel smooth and applied nicely and did not break me out. For reference I have combination/oily skin and is also very sensitive. I also have redness on my skin that I like to cover, which is why I tried the green primer. This did absolutely nothing to cover up the redness in my skin, not even a little bit. Maybe if you have very mild redness this might work. I didn't notice my makeup lasting any longer, nor was my skin any less oily. I used this primer in conjunction with a few different foundations to see if there was a difference and there was none. I would not repurchase - just didn't work for me!

For its price, I felt this didn't really fulfill what it was meant to do, at least half of it - It does help in increasing the staying power of my foundation/concealer, but despite its green-ness, it completely fails to cover up my red spots.
I bought this primarily to cover my red spots since my cheeks are pretty sensitive and red most of the time. Unfortunately, the texture of the primer was too thin and slightly runny to be able to have any decent coverage at all. Maybe it helped in reducing the overall red FEEL of my face, but I felt it did nothing but help my make-up stay.
I also avoided applying this on my oily T-zone as I felt that it made them even oilier as the day progresses. I don't know, maybe it's just my skin.
Despite that, I'd like to still give it credit for helping my make-up stay longer throughout the day. Though I don't think I'll be purchasing this again because it's too expensive for what it's worth!

..just an average primer..nothing special...good staying power though...didnt think it covered up redness
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I invested in this because I wanted my foundation to last longer and cover up redness from my acne.
Yes, my foundation does last longer with this guy on, you only need a very small amount to cover your entire face so that's a plus,
This didn't cover up the redness that I wanted. I think if you have minor redness around the nose and cheeks then this should do the job. Acne however is concentrated spots of redness all over in random spots. This primer is too thin to really be layered on top of acne to neutralize the color. For that I think you'd have to invest in a green CONCEALER (which I will be!)
This sinks into the skin quickly so you can follow up with your foundation routine easily.
I might repurchase this if I can get a 15%-20% off discount from sephora but probably not if I have to pay full price.

I have to say that I'm very disappointed with this product especially since I'm a fan of MUFE. I've been looking for a primer that would control my oily skin and reduce my redness around my face. Unfortunately this primer does not control my oily skin. It does reduce my redness but not by a whole lot. It states that it "enhances the skins texture," yeah, not true. I didn't find a difference at all. As for lasting power..? I would say my makeup lasted for a good 5 hours when using this primer. So overall, this product basically sucked for me.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Brown
I'm truly surprised at how low ratings this product got since I consider it a must have. I don't use this very often but when my skin is irritated or when I have clients with alot of redness this is a miracle worker. The texture is amazing (far better than the smashbox which feels greasy to me) sometimes I'll use a tiny amount alone even when I'm not going to wear makeup, just to soothe and balance out my skin. I really love this product, I have not found anything like it and therefore I will most likely have to repurchase even though its like cut off arm, exchange for primer (so expensive)

The good news is that this primer smells nice and fresh; comes in a hygienic and convenient pump bottle; is easy to spread (it feels like a lotion); and provides a smooth canvas for foundation. Bonus: it doesn't pill.
The bad new is that I bought this to combat surface redness, but the green, even in tiny amounts, makes my pale, pink-toned skin look jaundiced. I should also point out that this primer had no noticeable effect on the longevity of my make-up, in case that's a priority for you.
Bottom line: if you have yellow undertones and surface redness and are looking for something to give you smoother, more even-complexioned skin for your foundation, then I'd say this is a solid choice. But if you have pink undertones, you will probably look sallow and sickly in this primer.
A final note for fair-skinned people: if this doesn't work for you, try MUFE's #5 Blue primer -- I've been testing it out these past few weeks, and it does a wonderful job of knocking out the redness around my nose and cheeks.

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.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair, Warm Hair: Brown, Straight, Medium Eyes: Black
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!).
Age: 36-43 Skin: Oily, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
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.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair, Cool Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
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.
