I love this primer! It doesn't cancel out red completely, but it definitely creates a much more neutral base for me to apply foundation. It definitely can't be worn alone, it will just make you look sickly. The consistency is pretty thin and very easy to spread. One pump is plenty for my entire face. It is pretty expensive for a drugstore brand, I think I paid about about $9.50 for it. But previously I had been using the $42 Lancome La Base Pro, so it is still way more affordable! It is pretty different from the Lancome- much less satiny, and obviously it is color correcting. I think this will be a primer I stick with for awhile.

Awful primer!! I have acne prone skin and it's very red due to my rx treatments and this primer does absolutely nothing to help my skin. it's awful to spread around and I have given it a few chances also.. And even after putting foundation on top you can still see the green tint on your face.. pretty embarrassing.. avoid at all costs..

I recently purchased this as i was fed up with trying to use normal concealer on my redness which is mainly around my nose and under my eyes, OMG......You have to get this! This is my HG product. I use mineral foundation and have tried to conceal with mineral concealer but it just doesnt really take away that redness. So what I do is cleanse tone and moisturise, let the moisturiser really sink in and then add a pea size amount to the area around my nose. It is also a primer so iot controls the oiliness around my t zone too.
I applied it under my mineral makeup this morning (at 6am) and iam typing this at 3pm - no oiliness, no redness just clear complexion. Iam very very pleased with this product and will be purchasing it again. Iam in the UK and this retails about £10.00. Fabulous product - really notice the difference with make up application over this too! Try it.

I walked past this product a lot when I was in the makeup aisles at the drugstore and I never purchased it because I thought it was a bit $$ for a drugstore makeup. But after a slew of photos with my face looking very red were posted on facebook, I was desperate for that never to happen again. So I bought this - and boy am I glad I did.

Let me just start out by saying *I did not like this product when I started using it.* I thought the consistency was wierd and made my skin look oddly pasty. But after I started using the
Monistat anti-chafing gel I decided one day to add a little of this product to it, and it worked out to be AMAZING. All of the red from my Irish skin: Gone.

I now understand the pricing for this as well - a little bit can go a LONG way. I just add the ever so slightest amount of the product to my fingers, along with the monistat gel, and mix it together, then apply it to my face. Then I follow up that with foundation.

I get so many compliments about my face looking "so wonderful," and best of all, I have yet to see a bad picture on facebook since I started re-using the product.

I love this primer. The packaging is very sanitary first of all, so big plus there, I don't have to worry about bacteria transfer with a pump. The price at first was a little much, but after using this for about half a year I am yet to run out, so I would say actually reasonable. The product itself is runny, which makes it easy to blend in when applying. I first apply my usual face primer to fill in my pores and acne scars, and then a very thin layer of this over my red marks and wherever required. Then foundation to finish. The result is a significant decrease in redness compared to the same products without this primer. On days where I'm in a rush and forget this, I can really tell the difference. This is an HG product for me for sure, so I'll be repurchasing.

I have a lot of redness on my cheeks. This didn't do much for it. Mine as well use foundation and concealer by itself.

I put it on some red blemishes and red scarring and stuff and it hides it a lot when I apply my foundation. It's a great color corrector (=

I use it on my cheeks. It does cover redness quite well, and I was surprised and happy when I noticed it made pores less visible also.

I read the reviews before purchasing this, and I bought it anyway. I'm glad I did. This works better than the Stila correcting primer, Smashbox Adjust, and the correcting primer by Almay. I think people who don't like this are using it incorrectly. I apply this in a very thin layer to my t-zone, cheeks and chin. Then I apply a second very thin layer to each area. I give it a few seconds to blend in and dry, and then I apply my foundation. The result is my foundation applies perfectly and my skin looks even and smooth. This is not meant to be applied in a thick layer, nor should it be used all over the face. Applied judiciously and carefully, putting just a tiny dot on the finger and blending in lightly, it works as promised. The pump is messy, so expect to clean it out from time to time with a Q-tip. This is a great value compared to other similar products, and it works better than anything else I've tried. Also, it's worth nothing that this will not make your foundation apply more smoothly, it does not conceal pores, and it does not extend the wear of makeup. However, it covers redness, and it does it very well.

General opinion: Pump can be adjusted to give you the right amount if you have self-control but the glitter is a turn off.
Pro:
- It is widely available at most drug-stores
- L'Oreal gives you a lot of product. I don't think I'll be finishing this any time soon.
- You use it BEFORE your foundation, and I've had no problems with it not staying on or making me oilier.
Con:
- Expensive for a drug store brand! Can be bought between $10-15, although it is cheaper than Smashbox!
- Why do you have glitter? It doesn't make sense.
