MAKE UP FOR EVER – Step 1 Skin Equalizer (Radiant Blue) Primer Swatch & Review

Price: $45 CAD
Size: 1.0 Oz
Shade: Radiant Primer Blue


The packaging for all the Step 1 primers are similar, they come in a plastic, matte finish tub with a pointed ‘spout’ and an extremely small opening. The small opening causes a little trouble when there is an air bubble on the inside – as it will spit out product as you squeeze. Besides this the overall packaging is practical and comes in a great size, convenient for travelling and is a good size.

PRODUCT (Radiant Blue)

This product is a colour correcting primer which works to brighten the skin tone. The consistency is similar to a watery lotion which helps it blend into the skin effortlessly. It feels silky smooth and extremely light weight on the skin. Pigmentation wise it is on the sheer side – so it is great for a subtle brightening affect on light skin tones. This means that use for all over the face is doable but if a heavier correction is desired this may not be the product for you. It works well as a quick brightening pick me up for your skin tone, especially on the high points of the face. Overall, the texture of the product is amazing – it feels weightless and sets to a matte finish helping you avoid any creasing. The pigmentation is on the sheer end; therefore it is geared for a light colour correct effect.  Though it is marketed as a ‘primer’ I would still recommend you to use an overall primer after this product to create a tackier surface for your makeup to stick to. The price point is on the higher end – luckily a little goes a long way and will last you a bit if you use it sparingly.
