Professional Makeup Base (GREEN)
Oil-free, non-sticky makeup base helps skin banish unwanted shine for fresh makeup. Green neutralizes redness and evens out skin tone. Php375 for a 40ml tube (forgot the exact price, feel free to correct me in case i'm wrong)
I bought a couple of green correctors before (powder and liquid types) but never really liked it. It's either i cake like crazy afterwards or i get a hard time trying not to look like a green monster after applying it. So when i really started to use primers, i'd prefer those clear ones. And in case i would want to cover any signs of redness, i just use concealers. But of course, i really need to neutralize the redness first, right? So, this product is really heaven-sent :)
what i like:
no funky smell
no allergic reactions. been using this almost everyday and i don't get any itchiness or whatsoever
gives a dewy finish...not too shiny, not too matte
really neutralizes the redness so you'll have a brighter face after putting on foundation. it really makes a difference to have this on, than to just directly apply foundation on your face
creamy consistency makes it easy to blend and doesn't feel heavy at all
cheap as compared to other brands...and it works as well, if not better
pores are less visible
foundation doesn't cake even you have this underneath
provides you with a smooth canvass for your foundation
you won't look like a green monster if you've applied too much!
a little goes a long way, so this 40ml tube would last me for months. i had mine for almost 2mos, been using it almost everyday.
no primer - with primer - with primer + mineral foundation
what i hate:
no spf. If you want the one with the spf, TFS has the Phytogenic primer but much more expensive
makes you oily if you apply too much. so just use a tiny bit and spread evenly on your face
you can apply this using a brush, but i prefer applying it with my fingers (make sure they are clean!).
use sparingly. dab more on areas which are prone to redness.
so what about you, ladies? what's your favorite corrector/primer?
i think most of you are aware of what happened here in the Philippines during the weekend. A lot have suffered...so many lives have been wasted.
Please take time to pray for those who got affected by the typhoon. Let's try to help in every way we can.
I admire those who have reached out...and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts. It's overwhelming to know that at times like these, people from all walks of life would help those who are in need. I just wish that we won't need a calamity like this one for people to help each other. we are all brothers and sisters anyway...
