                    • Q:

                      If I buy this Foundation Primer SPF20, do I still need a primer?
                      And what shade do I need? I have large liver spots on my
                      upper lip, will this cover it or do I have to purchase a concealer,
                      too?

                        A:

                        This product is a primer. It can be used underneath your concealer and foundation, which would provide coverage. It does not have a tint worn alone.
