    Like the green one

    Used the green tinted primer for my normally red skin. It worked pretty well. I love the feel of Smashbox's primers, they feel like velvet on your skin. Only problem is the price, it's a bit heavy considering it goes under your foundation. — 1 year, 2 months ago

    Smashbox Green Color Correcting Primer

    If your like me, you have a lot of red coloring on your face and it drives you crazy. I have tried several green based concealer s and primers, but many left me looking like Kermit the frog. Smashboxes green primer worked without me looking like a green frog. It goes on smoothly, covered many of my pores and reduced the red by about 80%. But to achieve that I have to use two coats. I like this pro...read moreduct and the new Stilla One Step Correct. The main difference is the Smashbox feels smooth and just rids the green, the Stilla has swirls of moisturizer and color and is for heavier makeup days. For lighter makeup days the Smashbox is the tops. — 1 year, 3 months ago

    Helps with redness... clogs pores

    This primer helps with redness but doesn't cover it completely. I bought the green one, that corrects redness. Yes, putting green stuff on your skin is scary. I don't wear a lot of make-up, for the most part I only use Laura Mercer tinted moisturizer which doesn't cover as many flaws as regular foundation. Besides a few blemishes my main concern was the redness of my skin, which the tinted moi...read moresturizer covered enough to make red areas look pink. When I use this primer I notice that it significantly reduces the redness, but it doesn't make it disappear. I think if I put regular foundation over the primer I would see the full potential of the primer. I only use this when I know I will have my picture taken or know that I will be around people that are a bit judgy (we all have these types of people in our lives). I usually use the clear smashbox primer, but it doesn't help with redness at all. This covers the redness but it clogs my pores more than the classic primer. Every time I use it, I wake up with more black heads and a few little bumps on my cheeks. Removing my makeup and washing my face doesn't save me from the aftermath of this primer. This stuff does reduce redness at a price. It is great for an important event, but I can't use it daily. I recommend buying the travel size, you really don't need much for each use, and if your like me you wont be using it more than a few times a month. — 1 year, 10 months ago

    Mediocre...

    Love Smashbox products so I thought I would try the Redness - Corrective (green) Primer. It reduced redness but not largely. I still had quite a bit of redness, and for the amount of money you pay for it, I don't think i'll buy it again. — 2 years, 6 months ago

    Not The Best

    I bought the green color correcting foundation primer, because I was told it was supposed to cancel redness in my skin. However, the primer made little to no difference in my skin coloration. Also, I found that when rubbing the product in, it sometimes clumped and did not smooth onto my skin easily. It isn't horrible, but I don't think I will be purchasing this item again. — 3 years, 6 months ago
