L'oreal VS. Make Up Forever Primer (Green - for Skin w/Redness)
OK, well as you know most 'green' primers are correctors for skin tones with redness. It helps reduce the redness on your skin as well as keeping your foundation in tact and last a long time. It also helps reduce step(s) when applying your makeup such as applying concealer over & over to hide redness and blotches on your face.
I've been trying the Green primer from Make Up Forever for a few months now and it's incredible. It's super light, soft with no odd smell, lol, oil-free and it comes with a pump, which makes it easy to use. It can be purchased at Sephora for $32 in 1.01 oz. size http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P217906&categoryId=C13402 so it will last. 1 pump is all you need; apply to the entire face; and a few small blots on the areas needed (redness) followed by your foundation and other products you use. This primer works very well with Revlon's Color Stay and Photo.
Recently, L'oreal has launched its NEW products from new eyeshadow colors to primers (love the NEW duo's). I purchased the Green primer 3 weeks ago and have been using it everyday to compare. The results are compatible. The texture is almost the same as Make Up Forever except is not as light, but it's not heavy either and it's a bit oily. It can be purchased at your local drug store for $12.99 in 0.68 oz size and also has a pump. It also works well with Revlon's foundations. It's a big money savor and the best part its effective.
