This product is basically clear. It will even out your overall skin tone, creating an even 'canvas'. You could wear it by itself if you are not one for foundation. Does not have SPF.

If you have clear skin this would work fine without foundation, and even is you have a few spots you want to cover this you just have to find a good concealer. But if your looking for something with coverage like foundation, then this isn't it.

I would say it depends on your skin (acne, blemishes,etc) This won't cover up anything. I don't understand how they can say it improves your skintone, this did little to nothing for me! I have very fair skin and no blemishes just freckles, I have a normal skin tone and all this did was my my skin a little glowy, I decided to send it back, seeing as it didn't cover any of my freckles or eliminate any redness!

My presumption when I got it was that it is not a moisturizer. So I put all my moisturizers and stuff on first - even my primer. Then I put this on right before foundation.

answer 2
I also use this without moisturizer - I have combination skin, and find many moisturizers are too heavy/oily, so the moisturizers in this are enough without being too much. If you use it with a moisturizer, definitely use the moisturizer first.

Also, I don't find I need to wait before applying my concealer and powder foundation. It might be good to wait until it feels like it's absorbed before applying a liquid foundation, but it absorbs quickly.

Follow your usual skin care regimen - after your final step (usually moisturizer), wait ten minutes or so and then proceed with One Step and the rest of your makeup. I let this primer set up for just a couple of minutes before foundation/powder but I do not know if that part is necessary.

When you pump it out - it comes out just like it looks in the bottle. So you can actually see the swirls of the different colors. But then I rub it between my fingers and just put it all over my face - that way everything gets what it needs.
answered 2 years, 1 month ago
grammykate
answer 2
In the bottle, the three concealer colors are spiraled within a clear serum or gel. All of them come out mixed together. Like others, I find it's invisible once applied, no green or orange (or purple) spots - you can wear it alone if you want.

It's not heavy enough to cover pimples or serious undereye circles by itself (you still need concealer) but it's great if you have overall blotchiness or excess redness across the cheeks, and I would guess it's good for overall sallowness as well since it has the purple in it. it's also good simply as primer, to make powder foundations apply more smoothly and look more natural.

answer 3
Those colors you see in the jar? When you pump the product, this tiny little 'ribbon' comes out and the colors are twisted within the ribbon. It is not all one color, you can see the individual strands of color and that is how it gets applied. I think that is how they manage to pull off the natural-looking skin after application - by having the colors blend a little differently when you rub it on, instead of coating your skin with a single color.
You cannot see colors after application like you probably have with some primers - just looks like your skin, but evened out tone.

It pumps out as a swirl of all the colors. If you mix it in your palm, it will become sort of an opaque but overall clear color. It would be impossible to pick out a color to use on a certain area (for example, to use the green only on one area for redness, etc).
I usually pump a small amount into my palm, mix it with a finger once, and then apply to my face. It goes on clear.

I think it's sort of in between. It's not a skin care product but it has beneficial ingredients, but I personally don't think it's a primer in the sense of helping your foundation last all day and so I use primer over it. But it may work wonderfully that way - I'd try it!

It's a bit of both. It's primer in that it creates a smooth surface- deminishing fine lines and pores. It a bit of skin care in that it is moisturizing (you will still want lotion though). My favorite part though is the color corrector. I feel that pushes this ahead of other primers.

Rather than giving it a full pump and then applying, I use a tiny bit of a pump and I vary the locations for application. For example, I take the first bit and do some of my forehead, the next bit on my chin, the next some cheek, back to my forehead, eye, back to the cheek, etc.
I think the idea with this is that the pigments DO vary enough so your whole face is not 'painted' with one color - it is a much more natural look since skin varies from spot to spot. I have tried the 'single color' primers, and this one is definitely better than having my entire face coated in a green or yellow 'shadow' - even after I get my makeup on.
I do not know that you can get exact measures of each pigment in one pump, but if you vary the placement as you go, it does all work out to some nice looking skin.

It does contain a silicone: dimethicone is a silicone derivative. For a reference on dimethicone, if you're curious:

http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-dimethicone.htm

It is generally considered safer than a lot of the additives it replaces BUT some people do have allergic reactions or sensitivities to it. To give you my personal experience, Stila's products have been great with my skin even though I have problems with a lot of silicones - the Smashbox primer and BB cream were a no-go for me and both contain multiple silicones. Heck, the first 6 ingredients in Smashbox's primer are silicone derivatives. If there are other products that you couldn't tolerate previously, you may want to check out the ingredients list and see if there were multiple silicones or just dimethicone in it to give you an idea. The handiest list I saw of silicones:

I read that if there is an ingredient that ends with "cone" that it is another name for silicone. Seeing as there are a few ingredients such as dimethicone that are listed, I would think that this primer does have silicone in it.

However, I have used Smashbox's primer which also contains silicone and I have acne prone skin. If you know what Accutane is, then you can guess how bad my skin was since I took it. However, Smashbox didn't cause me to break out and I've been using it for over a year. I went to a Sephora store and tested this Stilia primer on one side of my face while the other side had Smashbox and I believe it did make a difference. My face didn't have any reaction with Stilia. However, everyone's skin is different, so try to test this primer if you're worried that it'll cause you to break out. I hope this helps.

Question
Is one-step correct a primer or a serum?
I am 28 years old and just starting into the anti-aging regimines. I use a serum, a moisturiser with SPF and eye cream during the day and serum, eye cream, redness relief treatment and night cream at night. Would this product work with my daily routine as a primer only or would I have to use it as a serum?

It is not a serum. It is more like a primer. I put it on underneath my foundation to even everything out.

I use it most days after my skin care regimen, whether or not I am wearing makeup that day. It is a primer, but the ingredients are very beneficial to your skin. I have noticed that my lines and redness have been diminishing since I started using this over a month ago - yes, when I have this on of course, but even when I do not have the primer on, my skin is looking better.

i'm 27, and i use this in the morning after my Clinique moisterizer, then makeup. at night, i still use regenerist-type products, but this helps even things out in the morning.

depending on how happy you are with whatever serum you're currently using, i'd switch to this one. i love it! it works well, great price, and lasts a long time!

I use this a primer, and it really works well. I use another serum after my toner, then moisturizer, then this product as a primer. It feels very light and really works to even out my skin tone--I have a lot of redness around my nose due to allergies, and this product really helps to correct that. I love it!

It acts as both and I use it during the day as both. It goes on much like a serum but does prime as well. Love it!

This is not an anti-aging skincare serum or anything of the sort. Still use your serums day and night, this is just called a "serum", but is actually a primer to be put on over skincare products during the day to prime your skin's texture and tone before any makeup.

I believe it is meant to be a primer, but it has the consistency of a serum. I would not recommend this product. I have redness in my cheeks and this product didn't camouflage it at all. I also didn't feel that it worked sufficiently as a primer. But then again, I prefer silicone primers. I have used Philosophy products for years and am completely in love with them. If you are looking for skin treatments and anti-aging regimens and you haven't tried their products yet - check them out! I just purchased the Booster C powder that is supposed to be added to your moisturizer. Over time it is supposed to help even out skin tone. I can't recommend it yet - I haven't used it long enough. But the brand is excellent so I would say it's a safe bet. =)
