Revlon PhotoReady Colour Correcting Primer


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.

  1. This primer makes my face look like I used way too much powder. My foundation does not go on smoothly with this the way it does with other primers I have used. I need to blend and blend and then retouch with a sponge to make it look natural.

  2. I use this primer everyday and what a display. My pores are closed and releases a flawless look.

  3. These are really one of the best priced primers out there and it works amazingly!!! Want flawless skin? Try out these.

  4. I LOVE this primer and always recommend it to ladies. It leaves skin looking amazing and helps make up stay on longer. My make up stays on all day regardless of what foundation I use! Must Have!! 5 Stars for this awesome product.

  5. This primer is much more affordable than Smashbox etc but it delivers the same flawless effect. A little goes a long way and its the perfect way to set the canvas for the application of foundation. The colour selection is a tad disappointing though.
