This primer does not live up to the hype. I have dehydrated acne prone skin which makes my makeup melt off or break apart into patches after a few hours of application. The product does not make my makeup last longer, in fact I feel as though my foundation is harder to blend into my skin because of the primer. I have tried to use it several times with different foundations, trying to find a way to make this primer work but for its price, it is a huge disappointment. Its claim of being able to colour correct, brighting and illuminate are barely visible on my skin. After using this primer, my skin has begun to break out from it. I am extremely disappointed with this product.

I purchased two bottle for a year usage. I need to use a decent amount on my face to tell the difference. It blend in perfectly into my skin tone and instantaneously corrected the uneven skin tone. The only thing I do not like is the price - expensive

Honestly bought this product because I thought the packaging was too cute and innovative. It has the different colour correctors arranged in a spiral and little pump at the top. And it being from Stila and costing a bomb, I thought it would match up to its reputation.

The packaging is great as it allows you to control the amount you're dispensing. However, the advantages stops there.

I felt that it was too greasy going on my face and such a hassle to blend its way in, like it doesn't absorb easily. The different coloured correctors also made my face greyish and did not help correct anything at all, basically put a grey veil over my skin. My BB cream did not sit well over it and smeared all across my face, I had to wipe off all the product and redo my makeup all over again.

Basically a waste of time and effort and money,

I'm having a hard time deciding whether this helped with my redness, I think it does slightly but I may just be imagining it. What I liked about this primer is that it did help my makeup go on smoother and blend nicely. I also loved the packaging, it is pretty and doesn't waste any product. I did not like how it made my skin feel after applying it though, I found that it made my face feel almost sticky until it was fully absorbed. I have tried some primers that have made my skin feel so smooth, so I felt this product lacked that ability. I will consider buying this again, but only if it's on sale

I'm not sure if it actually colour corrected or I imagined it. Whether it did or not, I liked it as a primer. My skin felt hydrated and my makeup went over it nicely. Pricey but I'd probably repurchase as a little bit goes a long way.

I'm not sure what I feel about this.

I have coveted this product for literally years, purely from the way it looks. It is so pretty. I finally bought it as part of a deal and frankly, I'm underwhelmed.

For a primer, it is nice. It isn't almost completely silicone which I like, and it blends easily and well onto my skin leaving a good base for make up. Not really any better than moisturiser alone if I'm honest. I don't notice any colour correcting properties - I think if my redness were less and my undereye bags weren't so dark I might, but as it stands, it does nothing.

It's just a 'meh' product really. I'll use it till it's gone, but I won't buy it again. Such a shame. I was hoping the correcting properties would be such I could dare to bear my (almost) nude face, but sadly, this is not going to happen.

I got this from Mecca Maxima in Brisbane, Australia. I purchased the smaller size (15ml) as it was $32AUD and the bigger bottle was $52AUD. I bought this primer after seeing many great youtube reviews and it is definitely worth the hype. Stila packaging is so cute, the little gold box and then the actual product which basically looks like a twisted rope inside the bottle. It has 3 colours inside, the green, pink and a white tone. It does look really weird but I like it. When you pump it out it is easy to control the amount that comes out. It comes out with all 3 colours in the product and you don't have to mix before you apply, as it easily blends.

Okay, I have to be honest here - I bought this because the swirls looked pretty. Of course, for 40 dollars, I also expected it to do more than just spice up my makeup stash.

Unlike a silicon primer, the product was more slippery. It felt a little like soap, actually. When I first used it, I couldn't really see a difference. I let it collect dust until recently where I dug it up again.

I was going to do my makeup from scratch for a performance outside, and I didn't want to bring a bulky tub of moisturiser around. I needed something that would stop my BB cream from accentuating dry patches on my skin, and this did the job nicely! As I was slathering the primer/corrector on my face, my friend, who doesn't know much about makeup, commented that my 'foundation' worked pretty well. That is to say, the primer/corrector was really doing its job of correcting, of course.

I used it again today as I wanted to skip moisturising. In the day light, I could tell that it had really balanced out the redness from my zits pretty well, evened out my skin tone a little, and even brightened it. I put on my BB cream and Innisfree's No Sebum Mineral powder to set, and I don't think my skin has ever looked better. My blemishes and two big pimples were almost completely covered up thanks to the corrector's neutralising effect!

The reason why I am not going to repurchase this product is because it's expensive and my skin, apart from the redness of zits, does not require much 'correcting'. If I have to, I'll just get a green concealer that would be much more affordable.

This was one step that did not correct. Generally, I don’t have “troubled” skin. I’ll occasionally have redness around the area surrounding my nose or break out from hormones or react from a new skincare product. The pros of this “serum” is that it’s lightweight and didn’t leave my skin feeling oily. Don’t be nervous about the triple color swirl – the color doesn’t appear on your skin. I quoted “serum” earlier because I’m not if that term is fitting for this product (on the bottle, the name included - "skin tone correcting & brightening serum"). I feel like it’s a makeup product and not a skincare product and I lump things labeled “serums” into skincare. In regards to covering up redness, concealing blemishes, improving skin textures, & filling in pores, I felt like my regular BB creams were much more effective combating these issues and is a more convenient/quick-fix/all-in-one for my type of skin.

The main reason for returning this item was because it didn’t mix well with the foundations I currently own. I also had primers, blurs, and other products that performed better separately than this product that's supposed to be a “primer, color-corrector, brightener and anti-aging skincare." I tried multiple combinations and gave it a good run, but to me, it didn’t show stellar results and would have caused more issues with my current makeup products, so it wasn’t worth it to keep (with a 20% discount). I’d much rather spend my money on targeted makeup/skincare products rather than those that try to accomplish too many issues.
