I love love love the futuristic sciency look of this product from Stila. Take a look at their One Step Correct Primer.
So what we have here is a clear anti-ageing serum swirled with lilac, peach and green. The product claims to be a primer, a colour corrector, a brightener and as I mentioned, anti-ageing. As well as reducing the appearance of imperfections whilst reducing fine lines, pores and pigmentation. Oh and if that’s not enough for you it helps to moisturise and control oil production. Phew.
So here’s how it looks when it comes out of the tube, partially blended and then nearly completely blended.
It just looks so cool!. Now you may note that on the last picture there my hand has a definite green hue… there are two reasons for this, firstly I didn’t completely blend it out and secondly there’s no redness on my hands for it to work against. On my face I’ve not yet noticed a green cast, but even if I had I’m perfectly happy that this would be invisible once my foundation/BB or whatever is on top.
So what do I think? Well I don’t think it lives up to all it’s claims, but those that it does live up to make this a daily must have for me.
So to be blunt, I don’t think it minimises my pores, I can’t measure whether it’s anti ageing or not, I don’t think my fine lines are especially reduced when wearing this and I don’t think I look much brighter.
What it does do incredibly well is even skin tone imperceptibly, leave absolutely no residue or sensation on the skin, seconds after application you have no sense that it’s there at all. Then it makes my make up glide on well and I have endless problems with clogging around my nose, but there’s none of that with this meaning it’s a both a decent primer and a decent extra dose of moisturiser. My make up wears very well with this on too. Oh and a little goes a long way.
This little beauty will set you back £24, but its worth it in my opinion and would definitely purchase another bottle in future.
You can purchase direct from Stila.co.uk.
While we’re on the subject of Stila, I’ve been fancying their foundations for quite a while now… does anyone have any experience of any of them?
