I recently went to FL, America on holiday and obviously had to do some intense shopping. One of the things I was really excited about was taking a trip to Sephora since we don't have it in the UK. Sure, we have plenty of make up brands and stores here but I'd heard so much about Sephora having these amazing products, I had to pay a visit. I decided to get a face primer so that I don't always have to put foundation and blusher on
my face together as my skin gets pretty oily and starts to break out during the summer. I have to say I was pretty impressed with the Stila One Step Correcter (Primer) because it sets your face perfectly and unless you have really blochy skin, it evens takes over the job of foundation of even-ing out the colour and texture of your whole face. It's great for anyone with even slightly oily skin and for summer in general as the primer is light on your face and probably even prevents sweating.
There are 3 different brightening toners within the primer that come together as you can see (from the picture). The green colour cream neutralizes redness and conceals any blemishes, the light purple cream fights any sallow undertones to give a vibrant look to the face and the peach cream brightens and illuminates the face and helps reduce sun spots. All in all, it works perfectly!
You only need to use 2 tiny squeezes a day and I think this will last you about 3-4 months if you are like me and use it 4-5 times a week....If you do your make up more often then that it'll probably last you only a couple of months. I've been using it for about 2 weeks and the bottle barely looks used. I have to say, it is a little expensive...I payed about $39 for it in total (inc. tax). But if you think about the amount of uses you get out of it....(From my example 20 times a month*3 or 4 months = 60-80 uses)...seems pretty worth it!
Hope this helps for anyone looking to buy a primer!
