I bought this instead of spending a lot and getting a primer I already knew I like. I thought it would help with the redness. It did not cover the red and it made my face extremely greasy. It did not work well as a primer at all.

This product shouldn't be used as a primer. It has a liquid consistency and doesn't smooth out the face surface. I do like the packaging. It is easy to squeeze out a tiny amount with the pump. Mainly I mix a little of this product with my concealer and dab it onto any red areas on my face. I must say that does hide the redness. I didn't buy this at full price, but $11 for the bottle seems a little extreme.

I agree with all the other reviews that this product has a very thin, liquid-like consistency. I think it is a little expensive for a drugstore product, especially considering the fact that you get less than 1 oz. While this is a good base under makeup, I would NOT recommend buying this if you plan to wear it without foundation. You will look like Shrek's son/daughter!
Pros: Comes with a nice pump. Conceals MINIMAL redness. Gives a somewhat smooth base for foundation.
Cons: Formula too liquidy. Difficult to blend. Expensive.

This didn't do anything for me. I have acne scarring and I had been looking for a foundation primer and found this on sale at CVS. It didn't really get rid of the redness, it kind of just made me pale, and it definitely did NOT help my foundation stick.
PROS: Um, the packaging is nice? And I guess it did help the redness a bit. I gave it two because I think it might help people with rosacea.
CONS: It doesn't work! I felt like I was just putting ANOTHER layer or makeup on and it made my makeup look thick and pancake-y. And at full price it's a little expensive I guess.
OVERALL: Would never buy this again and I don't recommend it for acne scarring.

I have MUFE's anti redness primer,but for $35 USD it is a bit too drying for me,and it's $35.CVS had these on sale for $9 last week and I had coupons for $2 each; $5 wasn't a bad price to pay.
The verdict-much more slip than the MUFE.Very liquidy,as previous reviewers mentioned.Takes mondo blending,BUT also erases the redness and makes my face look porcelain.Not a bad deal.The size/price ratio is a little off; I wouldn't buy this at full price.I didn't notice sparkle,but then again I'm half blind so that's not saying much.
No breakouts or irritation-I'd buy again on sale.

Bought this yesterday afternoon and returned it this morning.
How do I hate thee?
* liquidy and difficult to blend.
* doesn't cover green--makes your face look green.
* contains shimmer. Who'd want that in a primer??
* expensive for a drugstore product [$12.95]

Definitely not what I was looking for. I have mild rosacea, and this did nothing to cover up my redness. Instead, it left me with a grayish/greenish cast no matter how hard I tried to blend. The consistency is very liquidy and kind of hard to blend. This is also a VERY glittery product, so you really can't use it by itself. Even with foundation over this, the glitter is very obvious. The only pros about this was that it didn't make me break out.
Also, I found that this isn't really much of a primer, it's really just a color corrector. So don't expect it to make your foundation last longer or to control oil in any way.

I wanted to try this on some red areas around my face and thought the primer might help too with other issues. This stuff was SO green, I was blending and blending and blending...only to still look green! Not for me. I didn't feel like the primer was anything special either, so it was a lose lose for me. Back to CVS it went, thank goodness they let you return cosmetics that don't work out!!!

EDIT! This is to be used as an additive to your foundation! Duh! Here I was trying to put it on my face... LOLOLOL!
I was looking for a redness corrector and figured I would try the newest from L'Oreal. I really like it, it does what it claims and doesn't have that cakey/dense/paste feeling of a cream corrector. A little goes a long way and don't forget to blend blend blend ladies! Not a big fan of the packaging just because it is so liquidy that you don't even need a full pump. Whatever though, however it gets on your face is not important as long as it gets there! I was worried it might make my oily skin oilier but not so, I love the texture because it doesn't interfere with whatever I put over or under it. I wear it under my foundation (double wear or colorstay) and it works great. Would absolutely repurchase.

Found this to be kind of chalky and difficult to blend.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair, Cool Hair: Brunette, Straight, Fine Eyes: Hazel
I have redness around my nose, cheek and chin and I have combo skin.
I have used this daily for 1 week. It seems to last the longest when I use it on top of foundation just before setting powder. I have used the PF formula green concealer stick and it lasts about 20 minutes. This one pretty much lasts all day.
Sold! I will buy this product again

I have been using Everyday Minerals green redness corrector powder, and I like the effect but it's hard to get just right, either I look too green or there's not enough to cover. CVS had a 40% L'Oreal sale, so I picked this up for about 7 dollars, thinking I would try a liquid formulation, but didn't want to spend the bucks on the Smashbox version. It works. I do notice my skin is less red, although I have to use foundation over it (I use BE matte) or there is a definitely green hue, not Shrek or Elphaba, but still more green that I am comfortable being. WARNING: do a tiny little pump to get the product, see how much you need, and then pump a little more if you need it. I did two full pumps the first time I used it and had enough to get the red off my arms and legs too. You don't need even one full pump for your face, so this will last a long time. It could be a bit creamier, it feels a bit thin, but it does the job and it's cheap. I'd get it again.
