Revlon Photoready Color Correcting Primer Review

Basically, I am not a primer person. When I got Revlon Photo Ready Foundation, the SA used Revlon Photo Ready Color Correcting Primer before swatching the foundation. I liked the smooth finish and thought of giving it a try. As I have yellow color tone, the SA even said it would brighten up my face. This is my first primer. So, I won’t be able to compare it with the others in the market.

Revlon Photoready Color Correcting Primer Review

There are 2 face primers available in the Revlon Photo Ready Primer range:

1. Revlon Photo Ready Perfecting Primer.
2. Revlon Photo Ready Color Correcting Primer.

As mentioned, this review is going to be about Revlon Photo Ready Color Correcting Primer.

Revlon Says “Lightweight primer smoothes skin while evening out skin tone with color correcting pigments that neutralize redness and uneven color. Wear alone or under foundation.”

Product Claims:

  • Brightens skin.
  • Evens out skin.
  • Reduces redness.
  • Oil free.
  • Talc free, fragrance free, paraben free.

Face Primer

Price:

Rs. 1200 for 27 ml.

My Experience with Revlon Photoready Color Correcting Primer:

The product comes in a small sturdy glass jar with an easy-to-use pump dispenser.  It has a light lavender hint to it. Lavender is known for its ability to brighten dull skin and even out skin. Texture is just fine, not too runny.  Thus, making it easy to apply. It absorbs easily enough and dries down transparent. It does give a matte effect to oily skin, but it doesn’t hydrate dry skin. I find it is good for my normal to oily-combination skin. This product is fragrance free. I need very less product to cover my face and neck. So, this jar will last me long. It is light on my skin. It fills in my large pores and evens out my skin. It keeps my T-zone from oiling up for almost 5 hours. I think it will keep oil at bay for 4 – 6 hours based on the nature of the skin. It gives a subtle glow/brightness to my skin. This brightening up of skin will be noticeable in person.

Pros of Revlon Photoready Color Correcting Primer:

  • Hygienic packing.
  • Lightweight as claimed.
  • Visibly fills in lines, pores and unevenness in the skin.
  • Does brighten up my face without any shimmers.
  • Fragrance free, paraben free, talc free.
  • A little goes a long way.
  • Controls oil on my T- zone for a good 5 hours.
  • It can be used alone or with foundation.

Facial Primer

Cons of Revlon Photoready Color Correcting Primer:

  • Color correction property is less.

Verdict on Revlon Photoready Color Correcting Primer:

This products works effectively as a primer and has some color correcting properties. This primer may not be the best in the market, but definitely worth a try.

IMBB Rating:

3.5/5 (for not being very effective in color correcting).
