Hey Dolls! Sorry for the complete year delay in reviews or my overall blogging. Life got ahead of me and before I knew it I didn't finish my last blog nor have I got here and completely neglected it love. Well, it's no time like the present to turn over a new leaf, so it be now and look for future blogs after this one from me. I have alot of ideas running through my mind on what I want to do for the future and this time I am going to follow through.
Today's blog is on the eye primer/concealer by KORRES. This was sent to me compliments of as a sample to test out and I have for over 2 weeks. First and for most this is my opinion, my thoughts and what may work for you may not necessarily work for you. We all are different and we all have different skin colors and skin types so with that stated......on to the Review!
I am in my 40's, I have light to medium skin coloring with combination to normal skin; oily in the t-zone & nose, oily eyelids, dry patches. I have some dark coloring (depending on my sleeping patterns) and discoloring to my eyelids. I have tried in the past too faced shadow insurance, UD primer potion, e.l.f. primer, sephora brand eye primer to just name a few. While I like each except UDPP I by far prefer KORRES over ALL I have in my makeup collection. For it being long lasting, creaseless, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles around my eyes and lids. As previously stated, my eyelids tend to build up oil towards the end of the day and where UDPP, TFSI and e.l.f. primers started to crease, KORRES primer does not budge until I remove my eye makeup. UDPP when I use a thin layer would grab on the shadow too much and was hard for me to blend, this allows flawless application. Granted fallout happens with some shadows which can be normal for some but it allows smooth application and I don't even feel it on before placing my eyeshadow on. It corrects my discolorization on my lids and it corrects the dark circles I sometimes get too. It acts a 3 in 1 base. A eye primer, corrector and a anti-aging product for your eyes. And let's be real once you start to age there is NOT a product out there to stop it HOWEVER, there are products like this one that can diminsh the show of age before your foundation, eyeshadow go on to give your face and eye a more youthful appearance.
Other selling point is the fact this company strives on keeping harsh chemicals out of their products. So there is NO Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Dyes, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, GMOs, or Triclosans in them. Using natural and herbal ingredients. (Even earns Sephora's natural seal) From Sephora's website, the description of what this product does: "This primer provides a 360-degree smooth canvas around the delicate eye area, ensuring crease-proof, long-lasting eye shadow and concealer wear. Enriched with quercetin and oak extracts, it minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to provide softer skin while visibly improving skin texture. The apricot undertone instantly corrects darkness and imperfections on the eyelid and undereye area." And I completely agree with that, towards the remaining two weeks of my testing I purchased the product with my own money because I used up the sample and I was very impressed with it. And I will repurchase it again.
There are alot of other products available in the Quercetin & Oak skincare line with KORRES and this was my first KORRES product and certainly not the last. For those interested they have other lines of skincare in their collection and I am pretty much wanting to try others for I have been very impressed thus far.
