I’ve tried a few things from the MAKE UP FOR EVER HD line, and I’ve loved them all so far, so I was excited to test out the MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Microperfecting Primer in #1 Green*
I have used primers in the past but I’ve never experimented with a colour-correcting one before. MUFE makes MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Microperfecting Primers in 7 different shades, including #0 Neutral/transulent base. #1 Green is meant to minimize redness, and described as being ideal for rosacea. Although I don’t have rosacea, I do have a lot of redness that I could use some help with.
I was surprised that the MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Microperfecting Primer in #1 Green looks very green, but once it’s rubbed in, it’s actually a very faint hint, so you can use this all over your face without worrying about looking like an ogre. That said, I did not find it to have a huge colour-correcting benefit. There is a different around areas such as my nose, which mostly eliminates the need for concealer in addition to foundation, but it doesn’t work as a one-step cure for redness.
However, the great benefit of MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Microperfecting Primer in #1 Green is that in addition to the colour-correcting, it does work as a traditional primer. It doesn’t have a silicone feel, in fact it basically feels like applying a moisturizer, and it helps my foundation glide on easier as well. I like that my skin feels normal after I apply it, unlike some primers that give a weird texture. There’s also a nice scent to the product, and it definitely does increase the wear of my foundation.
While the MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Microperfecting Primer in #1 Green only offers a slight colour-correcting benefit, it is really great as a traditional primer and between this and the MUFE HD Pressed Power my makeup is going to be looking good all day this summer.
What kind of primer (if any) do you use?
