Revlon PhotoReady Colour Correcting Primer
Availability: Selected department stores and pharmacies
This is a lightweight primer that smoothes skin while evening out skin tone with colour correcting pigments that neutralise redness and uneven colour. Oil-free and paraben-free, this primer is suitable for sensitive skins too.
What we say:
In a market flooded with colour correcting make-up products, Revlon has recently launched a new line of products to join the ranks. Meet PhotoReady Colour Correcting Primer, a product that claims to smooth the skin and even out skin tone.
One of the first things I noticed about the primer was its colour – pink. According to colour theory, green or yellow cancel out redness as they are opposite shades on the colour wheel. With this in mind, I was somewhat sceptical as to whether or not the primer would live up to its promises. After applying the primer, my skin felt smooth and without any trace of oiliness, as is the case with silicone-based primers. The primer filled in any visible fine lines and pores and as a result I used less foundation than I usually would (bonus!).
I found that rather than neutralising redness, the pink undertone of the primer made my redness stand out a bit more. I would highly recommend this primer for someone with an even skin tone, however if you are in the market for a primer that will mask redness then a primer with a green tone would be more beneficial.
