Review: Stila One Step Correct Primer

What is it?

Funny looking “triple-swirled” primer that corrects, brightens, primes and nourishes the skin.

They Describe it as:

An innovative, three-in-one serum that contains three color-correcting, moisturizing brighteners for flawless looking skin.

Overall Opinion:

I love primers, that no secret.

I have tried huge amount of primers, and I’ve found out that I like silicon primers the best. You know, the ones that make you skin feel smooth and silky?
This isn’t one of them, and to be honest, I’m not really sure what it does.
I know it has several colors to correct the skin color, but they aren’t really working for me, and I don’t think my skin is even badly “colored”.  So that part doesn’t really work for me.
It might brighten my skin, I don’t know really, but it doesn’t really make my skin smoother either. But it does hydrate my skin, and it makes foundation go on more easily, and it helps the foundation to stay put well.

This isn’t the best primer there is, but one of the most “natural feeling” I’ve tried.  This was awfully hard to review, since it’s not really good, but I still like it quite a lot :D

I’ve tried it before. It broke me out and I’m not even very sensative. Not impressed. I work at a makeup store and I don’t get a lot of customers coming back for it…. if that helps.

Thank you for share your thoughts! What’s the best primer you’ve tried? I use Clinique, and it’s ok but I’m looking for one that wow me.

I’m sorry if it makes no sense, but for me the product itself made no sense. It was good even though it wasn’t good etc.
This was really hard to review.

My brother bought this for me a few months ago and my reaction was pretty similar to this one. It did brighten my skin but as far as evening out my complexion, it really didn’t do much for that. I like it and I use it frequently, but I don’t think I would buy it again. For a primer, I have been using L’oreal’s make up perfecting base and then I layer milk of magnesia over that which I use for oil absorbency, and it works really well as a primer too. My makeup stays matte and lasts all day.

Wow, out of the five things this product claims to do, it does one for sure, and maybe another one, and it gets a rating of 3.5 out of five and it is $36. I wouldn’t spend money on something with that kind of track record, even if it was only $10, and this is $36. So a product of that price doesn’t have to be a good product in order to spend the $$?

Ha ha, my exact thought. I bought it the other day and was all excited, but when i put it on, my face still looked the same. It´s quite refreshing though. But since it´s not available in Germany and i had to pay a fortune to get it from the UK i probably will not buy it again and get back to the Clarins or Benefit primers i used before.

I tried this on my hand at Sephora and I was super bummed that it didn’t work, at all! At least not as far as covering goes. However, as a primer it seems like it would be okay, maybe mediocre at best, though.

I can’t believe this “review” is even on this website. You’ve told us nothing. Not sure what this product does, but I do recommend buying it………..


Oh I know. She claims it was good but it wasn’t. What does that mean? Her vibe was that she basically didn’t care for it. Then just say so.

And please someone let the winners of that contest a few months ago get a chance to give reviews and post articles too instead of the Jangsara show.
