Korres Quercetin & Oak Antiageing Eye Primer is a double-duty primer which can be used as a base for concealer as well as an eyelid primer.
It’s packed with antioxidants like Quercetin, oak extract, sunflower extract and vitamin E. These all are supposed to help with smoothing fine lines and improving skin elasticity.
It’s made without parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, Phthalates, GMO’s or Triclosan.
They make some hefty claims, among them that it’s crease resistant, and long lasting. Let’s investigate further.
The container is nice, fairly standard for an eye primer I think. The wand is a straight soft one and it’s easy to get the product out.
So far so good.
Korres Eye Primer (unblended)
The color of the primer is fairly pink/salmon colored so I was a little worried that this would affect the eyeshadow color on my lids.
Korres Eye Primer (blended)
Once blended in though, it completely disappears into my skin leaving no color at all.
The texture is really nice, it feels really velvety and easy to blend.
But that my friends is where the magic ends.
After about 5 hours of using it as an eyelid primer, I noticed that my eyeshadow slowly started creasing and got worse and worse throughout the day. Wah! It definitely did not have the staying power of Too Faced Shadow Insurance, which is my go-to primer and lasts an easy 12+ hours on me.
It seemed like it would be a great thing, but sadly it didn’t perform as I had hoped. I haven’t yet tried it as a concealer primer, so maybe it will do better on that area of my face.
Have you tried this one? If so, how did it work for you?
