Clinique Superprimer Face Primer - Colour Corrects Discolouration
Bought this to use under my foundation for my engagement photo shoot, and then hopefully for my wedding next summer. It applies really smoothly over moisturiser as long as the moisturiser is well absorbed before hand. I have some brown discolouration patches on my cheeks and whilst it didn't make them disappear or have any noticeable difference when first put on, I did notice that my foundation and concealer then hid them much more easily than when I only use concealer (as I do day to day). My make up lasted ages, from 11 am til 6pm when I took it off, through wind and hair whipping all over my face, sun, drizzle, having an afternoon nap…no oily patches (I have oily, acne prone skin) and no noticeable "slipping" of my foundation. I always get a few little spots after wearing foundation and primer, and this has been the case with this primer too, but fewer than another high-profile primer I've used, and they quickly went away. I'll definitely be using this for my wedding next summer!

Good primer, not a good corrector
Fantastic primer. Texture is fab, velvety smooth skin. However, colour correction, it definitely is not. I have slight redness in area and I mean slight. Yet it does nothing to that at all. Other than that, It is good. I will recommend a cheap alternative, which does the same.
With the green primer I've suggested, I've had NO breakouts whilst using it. I like to alternate things so my skin doesn't react to the one. Also depends on time of the month etc. As I need different face products.

First time I have used this primer and it was perfect! Really smoothes out those little imperfections!
