Sheer Envy Shine Free Primer

This didn't get along with my powder foundation (Mac Studio Fix Plus). It's mattifying but when putting my foundation on top, it was too grabby so it didn't blend as well and made me look dryyyy (it doesn't normally).

Didn't seem to extend wear time either.

Tried it twice then passed it on.

Sheer Envy Color Correct Cushion Wonder

I’ve been using this product since 10/31/17 and I wrote a review for it back then (plus an update a few months after), but I thought this was due another update.

I’m mostly using the (lighter) peach colored one now, though I have used the green one in the past, too. I find the peach one covers up my redness better and doesn’t leave a gray tint to my skin over the red areas.
