You probably heard colour correcting before, but what’s it? Colour correcting is basically using the basis of the colour theory to correct discolouration. There are many colour correctors on the market, however, you just need to know what your skin needs and select the colour accordingly. For instance, for dark circles, you can you peach corrector. How about having a product which corrects the colour and also primes the skin… Something like pur Correcting Primer Illuminate & Glow? It corrects, primes and illuminates!
My first pur product, pur Correcting Primer Prep & Perfect, came with the last year’s M&S Advent Calendar. This year’s advent calendar brings pur Correcting Primer Illuminate & Glow which is completely different than the other one.
pur Correcting Primer Illuminate & Glow aims to illuminating face primer preps skin and minimizes the appearance of pores, lines, wrinkles and imperfections with age-defying Ceretin Complex, plus key vitamins and antioxidants. This primer will instantly add a dose of hydration to dull, tired and stressed looking skin.
pur Correcting Primer Illuminate & Glow had a peachy bronzy colour which blends into the skin and acts like the extra layer. You can see the difference easily. It also has tiny sparkles in it which is noticeable. When you use this primer, you will get a healthy looking glow. It gives a little hydration, however, it is not too much so you still need to apply your skincare products beforehand.
How to use it? If you don’t need much makeup, you can use it on its own or you can just use it before your makeup to hide away the imperfections. You can even mix it with the foundation to get a glowy base. There are many options, just pick one and give it a try. You only need a tiny amount. If you end up mixing it with your foundation, it won’t really affect the coverage of the foundation. One thing you should be aware of is this product contains Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) which may increase the skin’s sensitivity, therefore, you’re recommended to apply sunscreen to avoid the possibility of sunburn.
pur Correcting Primer Illuminate & Glow is £24 for 30 ml. If you want a primer which would give you dewy glow without being dewy, give this one a try. It gives the glow and the makeup sits well on it. Would I repurchase it? I don’t know yet, I need to test it when it is a little warmer to see how it affects the longevity of my makeup, then I can make up my mind.
