Shiseido Refining Makeup Primer

RATING (out of 5 stars): 2 stars

COST: $35 for 30ml

THE SKINNY: This isn't one of those waxy primers. It comes out of the tube looking like a sticky foundation, although it's a lot drier than a foundation and doesn't really go onto the skin easily. Once it's there, however, you can't feel it on you skin and it's non-irritating.

The color correction lasted beyond a full workday. But it didn't do anything for my T-zone, which can get oily in the winter. In fact, it seemed to make it worse.

Shiseido's primer is designed to even out skin tone and deal with large pores and fine lines. It's a light nude shade that blended into my winter pale skin.

KEEP OR TOSS: Toss. Because it's difficult to get on and it made my forehead more oily than normal, I'm going to try something else.
