Prime Time! No7 Colour Calming Primer

No7 Colour Calming Primer is a green coloured primer, designed to correct red complexions (opposites in the colour wheel) allowing your true colour to show through. At £10.50 for a 40ml bottle, this seems to be a perfectly reasonable price compared to most primers; also considering it’s from No7, known to carry a heftier price tag for the high street!
The product has a nice thick creamy consistency so the application isn’t very ‘messy’ thank lord! I felt though that I had to put a lot of product on to fully even out my skin tone which left me with a slightly (and unsightly) green tinge! Minus value for money points! I also therefore, wouldn’t recommend this product to people who like to wear easy/minimal make up as it takes some covering up!
The primer left my skin feeling soft and had a slight sheen to it, Shame it was a green sheen!

Mid-day review
So this picture was taken around half 1, about 6 hours after I had applied my make up. I had noticed that the product had unfortunately started to shift around my T zone and chin which was very disappointing. There was still no sign of redness appearing (just a few scars and blemishes had begun to show) which is after all; what the primer is meant to conquer!

End of the Day
This picture was taken around 6 o’clock (10 and a half hours after application) there was redness appearing around my nose and my forehead and chin where looking… dewy (bit gross, sorry! truth hurts!) though the imperfections I have on my cheeks where still holding out which is fairly impressive!

Scores! (out of 10)

Creepy morning and evening photo! (will work on it)
Hard to tell on the picture, but I think you can just see the difference in the chin; this is the same side of my face flipped I will also point out!
