Recently I had the opportunity to try out the new Korres Quercetin & Oak Antiageing Eye Primer. I was excited by it, because I do love to try out new primers, but a bit nervous because it has oak in it and I was concerned I’d be allergic to it.

Does it live up to its claims?
As far as I can tell, yes. First off, it’s a fantastic primer. The texture and color are great. It makes shadows vibrant, and it does make them last all day. It did work well when I used it under my eyes. I like the color correcter, to be honest. I used it under my eyes and I felt like it neutralized the bit of darkness I sometimes get there. It caused no adverse reactions on my skin. I truly was surprised to find out how great this primer is. The only thing I don’t like about it is the container. It suffers from the same issue as the UD container, where it’s difficult to get at the product on the sides.
Would I purchase?
Yes. I like the fact that it’s a 3 in 1 product, which makes it great for the price! I like that it works as an under eye brightener and an anti-aging product. I’m a big fan of Korres cleansers, and I think this is another great addition to the Korres line.

Sounds amazing and in the long run will save you money.
I found it definitely nice Multi-tasking is great when the product can do each task well.
I’ll have to try this when my TFSI runs out. I like the face primer from this line (although it just feels mostly like a light moisturizer) and I think I would like this too. Plus, I know if it keeps your eye makeup from creasing it most likely will work for me, too!
I was happy that it worked so well!
How do you think this fares as a primer as compared to TFSI?
I actually think it fares very well. I only got a few uses out of the primer, but each time I used it, it worked really well.

I love,love Korres primers.I started using the foundation primer last winter since I suffer from very dry skin.Let me tell you, this stuff is the BOMB! Perfect for dry skin.I might give up the holy grail of primers,Urban Decay.
Hehe! I’m glad you like it! I always have liked TFSI better than UDPP, but I liked this one, too. I’m testing out Nyx’s HD primer right now.
