I"m a huge fan of primers. So when I recently went to the drugstore and saw Revlon's display for their new new Revlon Photoready Color Correcting Primer, and their new Photoready airbrush makeup (which I picked up as well and will review later), for only $13.00 bucks well I had to get my hands on both of them. The primer I use a lot is Smashbox Color Correcting primer because I suffer from slight hyperpigmentation on my cheeks. Click below to read my full review on Revlon's Photoready Color Correcting Primer:
When compared to Smashbox, the consistency of the Revlon's is more of a creamier texure.
The Smashbox one seems a bit lighter. When I applied Revlon's Color Corrective Primer, I noticed that my skin doesn't have a silicone feeling to it like the Smashbox. It feels more like I applied a lotion to my face and it also left a sort of matte finish to my skin. Whereas the Smashbox is a peach color, this is more of a light pink color. I also liked that this doesn't have any sparkles or shimmer on it like some primers do. My makeup stayed flawless throughout the day with this on. Also, I felt like this helped control the oil in my tzone area because it took a pretty long time for the oil to show and that usually happens pretty quickly. And yes, I did notice that my hyperpigmenation didn't show up as much because of the color correcting properties of this. I noticed I had to use way less concealer. So do I like this, Heck yea. And for $13.00 and the huge amount of product you get, this is pretty sweet.
Have you tried this?
What are your thoughts?
