No color correcting affect

By Angela

from USA

Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer - Adjust:

I bought this hoping it would tone down the redness of angry pimples/pink cheeks, but it has very little color correcting effect. I will say that it does its job as a primer and helped smooth out my pores and give my makeup something to stick to. But you're better off just apply concealer over red spots after you put this on if you want to cover up redness.

    I have a naturally pink face and this primer helps tone it down and make me look normal. It's light and doesn't smell wierd. Works great with my non-smashbox foundations as well.

    disappointed

    By Jamie

    from PA

    Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer - Adjust:

    This did nothing to help reduce my redness! I was hoping it could help reduce the need for concealer or extra foundation on red patches. It applied very translucent with a silicone heavy feeling, didn't help grip my foundation or make it last...instead it slid and applied unevenly! I'll be returning this

    I love this product. The only problem is that I was hoping for a bit more of a color correction than I got and it's a bit expensive for a small bottle.

            Comments about Smashbox Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer - Adjust:

            I have rosacea-prone skin, with mild redness all over my cheeks, nose, and chin. This adjusts the color very well, and glides on very smooth. Compared to NYX green primer, this one is far better, though the two are similar in texture and smoothing quality.

              • Q:

                I have combo/oily skin in spring and summer and combo dry in late fall and winter. I have some melasma and some redness on my nose and upper cheekbones. I currently have a mini size of the color correct adjust primer and just saw that there is a apricot color correct primer as well. Which would be better suited for my issues? I like the adjust primer but not so sure it covers the slight redness on nose and cheeks. It does do better than most I have tried in the past. Thanks for any help you can provide.

                  Hi There! We love using the apricot colored primer. It will conceal redness and minimize the appearance of hyper-pigmentation. It also contains an Orchid Complex that will help calm and sooth the skin.
