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.

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.

Good for red tones
Sampled

I happen to appear flushed all the time, so this was a great primer for keeping that under control a bit better. However, it also made my face appear a shade or two lighter than my base skin tone, so it didn't go well, except when LIGHTLY used, under my foundation.

Works as Advertised
Sampled

I fell in love with this primer. I have several broken blood vessels on my face and it helped cover them. It has improved the overall look and feel of my skin. I like that it feels light on my skin and controlled the shine I often get as the day goes on.

Brighter

I really like this product. I think the key is to apply a small amount! It leaves me brighter and glowing. I use it alone, or under a BB. I will consider purchasing the full size once I run out of the sample.

Couldn't try it

I received the box and when I went to give this one a try it was no longer in the box so someone decided they needed it more.
