Skin Correcting PrimersSaturday, March 30, 2013
My skin tone is yellow, but my cheeks are naturally red and gets even "redder" when I am feeling too hot or too cold. I am an avid BB cream user, and even with BB on my face, the red areas turn gray because the redness shines through the BB cream so it is not corrected, just covered.
I am doing an unbiased review on 2 color correcting bases here today (you know -those primers that come in green and purple?) that I have been using for a while now, and so that I can show you also what the purpose of these colored bases are and why they make a good base. Although it is not in their label, this is basically what a CC cream is.
I am more attracted to Almay's because of the packaging. That swirly thing is the actual product but the two of these have different effects and consistencies.
Both are very smooth after application, but Tony Moly's has a thick formula so don't expect it to glide on the surface of your skin, expect a little struggle -and can look rather white when you over do it. So make sure that you apply only on areas that you need correcting!
Almay corrects both redness and sallow skin so that is a plus. When you have tired skin, Almay brightens up the color of your skin. Tony Moly has 2 more correctors to choose from so you will have to buy according to what you want to correct.
Here are some photos of me with the correctors used alone:
