A few months ago I learned how to fix the obvious color difference between my rather red face and my very yellow neck and body with the Make Up For Ever Chromatic Mix Liquid Pigment. I was over the moon! But now that I go foundation-free most of the time and only wear Bobbi Brown’s new powder foundation on my bad skin days, I needed to look for a new way to cover up the redness in my face. The Make Up For Ever Chromatic Mix Liquid Pigment needs to be mixed with liquid foundation, and not wearing liquid foundation anymore also means no color correction anymore. So I turned to Make Up For Ever again for an alternative solution and decided to give the Make Up For Ever HD Primer in Green #1 a try. Today I’m revealing whether this green primer can hide the redness in my face just as well as the Make Up For Ever Chromatic Mix Liquid Pigment.
Make Up For Ever describes the Make Up For Ever HD Primer in Green #1 as a light non-greasy primer with a soft velvet finish that makes the skin look smoother by filling in fine lines and pores and makes make-up more even and long-lasting. It also promises to energize skin cells – whatever that means – and to hydrate and brighten up the skin.
The Make Up For Ever HD Primer in Green #1 comes in a lovely frosted plastic pump bottle, contains 30 ml of product, is bright green, has a bit of a funny chemical smell and has a light runny texture that needs a few minutes to dry. So yeah, this is clearly not your typical run-of-the-mill primer.
So far for the technical details. But how does the Make Up For Ever HD Primer in Green #1 perform? Well, as a primer it’s alright. It makes my skin a bit smoother and more even, it creates a good base for my make-up and it keeps my oily skin shine-free a bit longer than usual. And the redness? At first I didn’t really think that the Make Up For Ever HD Primer did much color correcting, but then when I took a few head shots I noticed that the color difference between my face and the rest of my body was definitely less noticeable. So even though the primer can’t hide all the redness in my face, it definitely neutralizes it enough up to a point where it doesn’t bother me anymore. Win!
The Make Up For Ever HD Primer in Green #1 is available at Make Up For Ever and in the Make Up For Ever online store for 51 CHF.
