THE PERFECT PRIMER | ALGENIST REVEAL COLOUR CORRECTING RADIANT PRIMER


Colour correcting is the current big thing, but who really wants to faff around with multiple tubs of bright concealer and worry about where to put it on your face? No, we'd rather sleep an extra ten minutes, thank you. This latest release might allow you to do just that: Algenist Reveal Colour Correcting Radiant Primer ($36). For those in the UK, you can get it at Sephora.

The Reveal Primer from Algenist has a unique formula which goes on sheer and lightweight and contains algacorrecting beads that reduce the appearance of sallow skin, dark circles and redness. The primer feels hydrating, goes on sheer and doesn't feel greasy at all. If that wasn't enough it evens out skin tone and doesn't settle into fine lines. It has great staying power and can be worn alone as well as beneath foundation.

One con is that for pale skin tones this colour correcting miracle product can look a little warm, or orange, but this can be neutralised through foundation application. 

WHAT DOES IT DO
Preps skin for makeup application
Brightens and hydrates the skin
Minimises the appearance of skin imperfections and colour corrects

HOW TO USE IT 
Apply with fingertips before foundation, or wear alone for a glowy natural look.

PROS 
Lightweight
Hydrating
Lasts all day
Brightens and improves the appearance of skin by evening skin tone and colour correcting target areas.

CONS
Might be unsuitable for those with extremely pale skin, it can leave an orange cast.
It is a hydrating, radiance-boosting primer so most likely works best with drier skin types, although it does say suitable for all skin types; it is worth noting. 

Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post. I would love to know what your holy grail spring beauty products are, please share in the comments below. I really love all the support and positivity I receive from you guys, it makes me so happy so please don't stop.

    1. I think it would depend on your skin type, as it is a hydrating, glowy primer I think it is more suitable for dry skin types. I should have mentioned that in the post!

  2. This sounds pretty great, I would definitely like to try it. I have pale skin but it's also warm toned so fingers crossed I'd be ok!
