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?
But for the price, this little tube needs to wow us more than a great drugstore primer (like L'Oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur, $19). DermaBlend's SkinPerfector didn't completely deliver on its promise of "full coverage" of irritated, red skin or rosacea. This color-correcting primer also loses a few points for poorly designed packaging. Too much primer pours out when you squeeze the coated aluminum tube, and you can't easily stop the flow.
And despite billing itself as a color-correcting primer, if you read the fine print on the back, it lists "sunscreen" as its purpose and in the directions for use. Sneaky? Yes. But on the bright side, it's a color-correcting primer with SPF 15.
