Try-It Tuesday - Stila Colour Correcting Primer
Today is my last day in Ireland for three weeks. That's right, for the first time in my life, I'm leaving Europe and venturing off to America. I'll be visiting New York, Washington and North Carolina. I've decided to vlog New York and probably Washington. In total, I'll be gone for 20 days but I hope to post frequently over that duration.
Today I wanted to give you a review of the Stila Colour Correcting Primer. I've been using it for a couple of months now and have developed somewhat of an opinion on the product.
As you all know, I get really bad redness on my face. I will do anything to try and soothe it so when I heard about this 'miracle worker' I knew I had to put it to the test. It was on the slightly pricier side ( priced at around €30). I put faith in the primer and was greatly impressed.
Firstly, I love this packaging! There's something strangely mesmerizing about the swirling loops. This product didn't completely anull my redness but it made a brilliant attempt. My skin is often irritated by primers but this particular one didn't irritate it.
I was genuinely shocked at how well it corrected the redness in my skin. Although it didn't entirely deplete the redness, I saw amazing changed and was very impressed.
Unlike many primers I've tried in the past, this one didn't leech all of the moisture from my skin. In fact, it hydrated it and made my skin plump and supple.
I noticed that when I applied it, it made my skin look bright and alive. This is due to the fact that there is a lavender pigment in the primer, and lavender tones counteract dullness in the skin.
This is also the reason it worked so well on my red patches (aka everywhere) - the green pigment in it counteracts the redness.
Makeup is a lot easier to apply when using this primer as it creates a perfect base. Foundation and concealer sit much better on the skin and also last longer. I was very impressed to see that my flawless base lasted through the day without creasing or gathering in patches.
Overall, I love this primer and I am prepared to say that it is my favourite primer in all-time history. After all, anything that can beat this redness is a force to be reckoned with and holds a special place in my heart.
If you suffer from redness, or are just looking for a great primer, I would 100% recommend this product to you.
Thanks for reading!
