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.

"That...space cadet glow"

First off, let me tell you that I probably need the purple color corrector, but got the green primer in my Birchbox. Also, I am not someone who spends a great deal of time outside and in the sunshine (I have that goth attitude)--so upon seeing all of the sunscreens listed as ingredients on the back of the tube, I was kinda put off. I thought all of that sunscreen would surely ruin the lotion's purpose as a primer. When I finally got around to trying it, I was really surprised with the results. I can use liquid foundation (a BB cream no less) and powder on top of it and my face just BEAMS. I look like I have that healthy pregnancy glow or that in-love look. It's hard to explain. My ordinarily dull skin (I'm 44) suddenly came to life again. With all of the poreless primers and products I've used, this is far and above the best.

USE THIS
Sampled

I love this product!! I use it every single day! The color is great and adds a little pop, I love it for layering under concealer and foundation. It's smooth and not caked.

Fabulous for my winter skin
Sampled

This product is great for balancing the redness in my face during winter. My nose, especially, can tend to stand out during the colder months. This product evens my tone. If it were just a tad better at minimizing pores, I’d be giving five stars!

Great for my pregnancy related acne
Sampled

Normally my skin doesn't need anything with this much coverage but towards the third trimester of my pregnancy I got two patches of acne on the sides of my chin/jawline that refused any treatment (like 2.5 months of non stop mini pimples and redness). This primer blended over that area did an amazing job making my skin look even when I was so bummed about this totally normal beauty issue. If you need a blendable primer for a medium coverage foundation this is a great pick. I used this brand's radiant primer on the rest of my face and also liked it.

Favorite new primer
Sampled

This primer gives me the perfect base for my concealer and foundation. It keeps my skin hydrated and allows for my foundation and concealer to blend and move perfectly into place

Great
Sampled

I really like how smoothly this applies to my skin and helps to soothe my red cheeks and nose. Not life changing but a solid product and nice that it has SPF.

It did ok
Sampled

It did an okay job. Nothing to write home to mom about. It had a very heavy feel to it and I would not buy the full size ever.

Amazing for Rosacea
Sampled

Now THIS is a game changer! Not like your typical primers, you have to work with this product to determine how much to use and how to apply but it’s worth the effort! It lasts all day and doesn’t melt away during the heat flashes from rosacea flare-ups.
It’s super lightweight, easy to work with and not overly green.
I’m super fair skinned and it works really well with my skin tone. It might not work for darker complexions because it evens out with an almost whitish appearance.
This sample made my life better!! My confidence has improved knowing my face isn’t beet red anymore!!!! Xoxoxoxo

Effective but too greasy for everyday use
Sampled

Loved the idea of this- was very effective at color correcting (red removal) but went on very thickly and felt pretty greasy- too greasy for everyday use in my opinion.
