We Tried It: Color-Correcting Primers in Every Shade of the Rainbow
Do the new breed of primers deliver on their promise to reduce redness, brighten skin, and smooth over discoloration?
One tester said that both the peach and lavender primers brightened and evened out her skin tone and kept her foundation in place all day. She also noted that these primers have a blurring effect: "It was like seeing my skin through a soft-focus lens," she said.
For our redness-prone tester, the yellow primer did a great job muting the irritated red patches around her nose and cheeks, and she also found that it lightened the dark circles under her eyes. This was her top pick because "it didn't sink into my skin the way some primers do -- it created a smooth barrier between my skin and foundation, so the coverage was as close to flawless as it gets without professional help or Photoshop."
