IPKN Color Correcting Primer SPF 15

The three pre-makeup staples you should always have in your beauty arsenal? Primer, color corrector, and SPF. They come together as one in this multitasking formula that preps, corrects, and protects in one application. It combines nourishing natural ingredients like rose flower oil to smooth the look of fine lines and pores and controls oil production so your foundation stays put. Pearl powder extract adds a brightening effect, imparting a radiant finish as the pigment in each neutralizes redness (green) or counteracts dullness (purple) depending on your skin needs.

Burned My face
Sampled

I do not have sensitive skin and can use pretty much any product, but as soon as I put this on, it started burning my face and left a red mark for several hours.

Hated this primer
Sampled

I have a reddish complexion so was excited to try this after I put on my moisturizing serum and before my makeup. It said to apply liberally so I rubbed a large pea size amount all over my face and it turned me the most ghastly shade of pale green. I actually looked like I was going to be ill. I kept rubbing and rubbing but it wouldn't rub in and anywhere I had a dry patch it magnified the dryness. I ended up having to wash my face and start over. This went in the trash.

Not effective
Sampled

Got out of the shower with a red face. I thought to myself, grab the new primer that was in your February Birchbox. Guess what, nothing. My face still looked red. Just not worth it.

Smells like CIGARETTES
Sampled

Literally. This primer smells like cigarettes and I am not exaggerating! I put it on my face and instantly noticed something strange, the foul smell of cigarettes! I have to throw it away. I even had my husband smell my face and he said the same thing! How in the world did they accomplish this!?

Greasy
Sampled

I was not a fan of this. It was greasy upon application and I felt like it emphasized fine lines. I also dislike that the SPF is so low. Many similar products and BB/CC creams are incorporating higher SPF and not leaving a greasy feeling. It took a while to rub it in and has a light, not unpleasant scent. I didn't feel like it offered any coverage or color correcting. I think this is the case because it has more "natural" ingredients so won't be as effective as all the chemicals. However, I like a product that can offer enough SPF and coverage so I can skip some other steps.

Doesn’t work

I have red patches on my face and it did nothing to cover it up. Not purchasing.

Not for me
Sampled

I wanted this to work so bad. It worked for color correcting which I need, but my skin is also very dry and this didn’t help with that. I need a moisturizing primer.

Meh

Nothing special about this primer. I have good primers. This is not one of them.

Chalky
Sampled

This product works well under foundation/other products but by itself it leaves a chalky/ghostly look.
