Seeing peach or skin tone products are normal, but when you come across something that is green or purple, you’re more than likely going to stop to see what the heck it is.
Laneige makes skin veil bases, which are primers for your skin before applying makeup. A primer creates a barrier between your skin and makeup, but it also will even out skin tone, help your makeup stay on longer and absorb oil on occasion. Laneige makes three colors:
Light Peach: Revive natural appearance.
Light Purple: Add brightness.
Light Green: Reduce redness.
As i said before, I have a lot of red in my skin, so I decided to try the green one. It’s really nice and definitely evens out your skin. I never wear makeup due to my sensitivity to pigments, so honestly if I do use this, it’s on special occasions. The primer made my face ghostly white, which I don’t personally mind, but to avoid scaring people, I added bb cream over it. Haha The only problem I ran into was that it really irritated my skin and caused me to have a lot of acne the next day. :(
I did find out through from this last halloween if I applied Etude House’s porever primer before the laneige primer, my skin does not get irritated. Very interesting O.o There must be some pigment in it that bothers my skin, Hm….
I love the packaging though. It seems like the majority of products in korea are encased in a clear plastic, which creates this really cool natural drop shadow effect with the text printed on the bottle, as you can see in the picture at the top left. Again, I love the color splash too; wasn’t expecting pink a bit.
Would you ever try a green or purple primer?
