Primer Review – Make Up For Ever Corrective Makeup Base SPF 18

I actually tried this primer a few weeks ago (Thanks DesZell for recommending it!) but with the whole Lebaran hoopla, getting back to work and other stuff, I just found time to write the review.

Makeup Forever has 7 different Makeup Base products that are intended to correct and improve the appearance of skin before makeup is applied. Neutral evens out skin tone and make foundation last longer, Green tones down redness, Mauve lights up muddy and sallow complexion, White enhances light-colored skin tone giving it a “porcelain look”, Apricot illuminates dark skin tone, Blue illuminates fair skin tone and diminishes slight redness, Yellow lightens dark complexions.

The liquid formula is quite moisturizing and feels similar to Paul & Joe primer, although this one has no pearl particle. It spreads easily and does make my liquid foundation blend well also giving it a nice, dewy finish. But the thing is, my oily face does not agree too well with products that produce dewy finish – before the end of the day, I could see some oily spots on my face from miles away. Yuck. However, I must admit that despite the unwanted shine, the foundation does last until way into the evening. I imagine this product will work brilliantly for people with dryer skin.

Btw I tried the Neutral and Mauve ones – the difference is hardly noticeable but the Neutral one does blend a little more easily and I got a little scared to see the purplish streak on my face :)
