Stila One Step Correct Primer

4:12 PM

I have no idea why I waited so long to review this product. I have had it for about three months.  There is really nothing impressive about this product at all.  It is supposed to help cover up redness and make pores look smaller. It does neither.  It does not even make foundation stay on longer. My foundation looks fine for about an hour. If anything, it made my skin look oily.  The only reason I kept it is because my mom did not have a problem with it.  This would be a good option for people with dry skin as it is very hydrating. That is about the only positive thing I have to say about it other than it caused no itching or irritation.

This is not as thick in consistency as most primers are.  In fact, it is actually quite runny in comparison. I would use about half a pump, any more than that and your face really will look greasy. One bottle could probably last you about 6 months.  Mine has only lasted three because both my mom and I have used it.

Luckily I am on the market for a new primer, and I am really taking my time on this.  I was attracted to the Stila One Step Correct because of it's resemblance to a DNA molecule (I am a closet nerd but hey, I am a pre-med student.) Another influence was the hype this primer was given before it launched. And I have had previous positive experience with Stila products.  Now I am looking at Make Up Forever primers, as well as foundations. I have already bought their HD foundation and tried it out. I will review once I have given it a proper test run.

I would skip on this product if you have combination/oily or oily skin.  If you have really wanted to try it and you have dry skin, I would say give it a shot.  Otherwise, do not waste the money.

  1. I'm on a hunt for a good primer as well and recently brought a few samples home from Sephora. I'm definitely going to purchase NARS Smoothing Face Prep for spot-treating eczema patches. I also really love Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, but it's sooo expensive...

    1. I love the Hourglass primer, too. But it is crazy pricey for a primer. I got the travel size for $17 and it lasts for a long time. I need to try the NARS primer; it sounds promising. I'll have to get a sample next time I am in Sephora.
