Barry M Flawless Colour Correcting Primer – Review

You know what? Barry M is one of the best drugstore makeup lines out there. When I came to the UK I was drawn like a magpie to their nail colours (makeup in general is very expensive in New Zealand) and then when it came time to bump up my makeup I pretty much grabbed everything as it was a good price point for me to learn with. I went through a couple of primers and then tried this one.

I got the green one for redness, and there is a purple one for brightening your complexion.

Now I was intrigued on combining a primer and a colour corrector, so I got the green one and proceeded to try it. The consistency is like hand soap, a little tacky (which gave me confidence as a primer) and it was VERY green. I smoothed a pump full on my face and worked it into the skin. As a primer – great. As a colour corrector…not so much. It didn’t do much to my pimples or redness around my nose, but it did prime my skin fantastically ready for foundation!

In conclusion (sounds so formal) I recommend just springing for a colour corrector and a primer separately. Its a great idea, but it really doesn’t work in this case. Id be happy to try a new formula if they ever put it out, as this would be my dream product!
