MAKE UP FOR EVER Step 1 Skin Equalizer Primer in Yellow - Review and Swatch

The ultimate primer and the only one I have been using for years. I shared it almost 2 years ago when it came in the pump bottle. This is a newer packaging with more color correcting shades to choose from. The tube packaging is meh for me but the product is quite awesome. I love this primer so be prepared to only read great things.

 MAKE UP FOR EVER Step 1 Skin Equalizer Primer in Yellow Swatch 

The Step 1 Skin Equalizer by Make Up For Ever is designed to balance the skin's texture and tone for smoother, even, and longer-lasting makeup. I have always felt that my foundation goes on smoothly and shows up a lot better with Step 1 as compared to others or no primer. It keeps skin looking fresh for hours and also takes care of dry/oily spots on face. It also makes my skin appear smoother which is so much needed after all those rounds of acne. 
One of the things that might make some of you unhappy is the fragrance. I like cosmetics with good fragrances as long as it doesn’t break me out. This primer has a very perfume like fragrance which I enjoy and the fragrance lasts juts like the effects of the Step 1 primer. I have been able to pull this off for a full day without having my foundation look patchy. I love it under my Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation and it even makes my powder foundation last longer. 

One of the best things about the Step 1 Skin Equalizer Primer is that it is available in 10 formulas to target every texture and tone. This Yellow one belongs to the category of “Radiant” primers and the Yellow adds radiance to tanned skin (or medium skin). You can find the one that suits you by reading the options in the pic below or list Sephora’s website for all information 

Overall I love this primer. The tube packaging is good for travel, but I hate to screw and unscrew the cap on that nozzle. Its annoying for me, may be because I really liked the pump bottle.
I would recommend everyone to try it out because there it offers a nice range of shades or concern specific formulas. It works for me and gives amazing finish to skin. I love the radiance it adds to my complexion. Get it from Sephora for C$45for 30 ml
