Shiny complexion. Hi everyone, today I want to do quick a review on the Tony Moly Cats Wink Shiny Skin Base Primer. I purchased this face primer along with the MISSHA BB Cream on eBay (Korean makeup and skin care haul pretty much). As you might know I suffer from red skin and always need to apply a primer before putting on BB Cream or foundation. This primer comes in #1 Clear Peach, #2 Clear Mint and #3 Clear Lavender. I purchased the one in Clear Mint as it helps reducing redness caused from blemishes or irritation.

Did it work for me? The first time I saw this primer was in a Korean make-up tutorial on Youtube, where it was highly recommended. Unfortunately for me it didn’t work that well on my skin. The first time I applied this primer, it didn’t blend too well with my skin, which in my opinion is a must for facial primers. After applying the green-based primer on my red skin area it also didn’t reduce the a lot of redness, but rather left a white film on my face. But after using this primer for a while I found out that you have to let it sit for a while. After waiting for a few minutes, the primer will blend with the skin more. It does not even the skin tone perfectly, but since makeup is applied afterwards, we can neglect that little shortage ;)

Pros:
+ Good price-performance
+ Sun protection (SPF15 / PA+)
+ Cute packaging

Cons:
+ Does not blend well with the skin

Rating: 3/5

Repurchase? It is not a must have product for me, but still does a good job as a primer.
