My neighbor works for L'Oreal so she brings me free stuff all the time. The last bag she gave me had a full size of this primer in it. I was very hesitant to try it because I am prone to breakouts. I am so glad I tried it! I really like it and I think it works very well as I have a little redness and some scarring. I don't know what people are talking about with the shimmer, I don't see any at all. It also does not make me look green or ill in any way. I wear it under my concealer and it does the job fine for me. And considering I got it for free was a plus. I might try the Smashbox or Makeup Forver but they are so expensive so we'll see. Yes this product is a little liquidy but I apply it all over my face then I apply my moisturizer, then concealer and I don't get any green or gray or pale face. I also use a nice rosy blush. Maybe people aren't using it correctly? I don't know, but I would recommend it. :)

i love this primer because it is a correcter and helps control my redness while making my foundation stay on! 3 things at once. I think its worth the price and i would get it again. i have a bit of a red face and when i use this it controls it and makes it look a lot nicer.

I've been impressed with how this product neutralized redness around my nose and and on my cheeks. For daytime, I can use this, with just a tinted moisturizer instead of foundation -- I don't need foundation for redness coverage.

Good for concealing red areas of the face (i.e. cheeks!). Won't completely get rid of redness but it helps! It is a little pricey, but it's the cheapest product of its kind. Works exactly the same as MUFE primer.

This does an excellent job of covering the redness I have from rosacea. I don't wear it on its own, though, since it does leave my skin looking very pale.
I use it under foundation (no moisturizer, since I have oily skin and this primer gives my skin all the hydration it needs; any more and I would end up with a big oil slick on my face). I then add a light dusting of bronzing powder and some blusher, and I end up with great-looking skin, which is no mean feat for my rosacea-prone, sensitive, oily skin.
The only negative is that it doesn't control the oil at all, which is why I took off one lippie.

Heum, pretty averagetastic, this. It does work, but the strange sheen/iridescence just isn't really kosher for daytime wear. Slightly runny but smooth and relatively easy to apply, you have to take care to only put on a thin layer and then cover the weirdness with foundation, which for a product designed to cover a problem like this seems counterintuitive.
Good for a night out, and probably best for rosacea sufferers (I have acne scarring and perpetually red cheeks, but not quite full-blown rosacea), but someone who hadn't seen me in a while asked me whether I was ill while wearing it, so I stopped. Have taken to just wearing a lot of concealer again instead.

I love this product, it conceals all of the redness in my acne really well.

I don't love this product but I don't hate it. It is a bit runny but I find it conceals the redness around my mouth and nose area just fine. I have sensitive acne prone skin and so far my skin hasn't reacted negatively to this. My skin tends to be quite oily in my tzone so I use this product sparingly. I avoid my chin area as that is where I tend to break out the most.
After I use it I pat the L'oreal clear primer over top of it (this came in a combo with this primer) and use my concealer. I find if I lightly pat this primer on with my fingertips and barely rub it in, it conceals the redness really well. Once I start to push it into my skin and really rub then it doesn't conceal the redness.
This product has helped reduce the amount of concealer I use and the amount of time trying to conceal redness. The only thing I don't like is that it leaves random glitter on your face. L'oreal could have done without putting a glitter in this.

This product semed ok at first, but the longer i used it, the more i began to hate it. It has a strange shimmer to it, and it is almost like a water texture. That is ok because I have oily skin, but i feel like it just absorbs right into my skin and becomes invisible. It hides SOME MINOR redness, but its not great. I wouldnt repurchase. I will stick to my Dermalogica Anti-redness moisturizer instead.

The primer has almost a clay-like texture; this helped the primer stay more of an opaque green which did help to counteract redness. However I really didn't like how it made my powder foundation look cakey. I've never had this problem with other primers (including Smashbox Photofinish, Cover Fx Skin Prep) It looked like I was wearing a mask.. eww.
