I’ve been using Smashbox light oil free primer for over a year and really liked it. After reading reviews about MUFE HD Microperfecting primer (A lightweight, oil-free complexion corrector that enhances the skin’s texture and primes the skin for makeup application.) I decided to give it a try.
The part that sold me was that they have six color-correcting shades depending on your skin type needs. I chose the yellow #6 for my olive skin tone. At first I really was not a fan of the smell and was going to return it, but after using it a few times I realized it really did even out my skin tone and add a subtle glow! I also feel that this primer has lasted a lot longer than my Smashbox primer. If you have uneven skin tone I would definitely recommend this product.
Here’s a breakdown on which Primer is best for your skin……….
(adds natural luminosity to the complexion)
(minimizes redness – ideal for skin with rosacea)
(counteracts sallow undertones)
(combats ashiness in medium to dark skin tones/warms golden tones)
(adds radiance to fair skin/ reduces minor imperfections)
(lightens dark complexions)
(brightens the complexion/ counteracts sallow undertones)
Have you guys used this primer?!! Which ones do you use?
I do use this primer! I have Neutral & Green 🙂
Thanks for doing a review on this product! I always walk by it near Sephora and it always sparks some curiosity. I think I am going to try out 6# to lighten my dark skin tone!
i've only used the bare minerals primer and i didn't see a difference in how long my foundation lasted. I want to buy MUFE in Neutral! thanks for the review!

& Life According to Marie.
I really enjoy your blog and love your laid back but chic style. I have been curious about this primer for a while, I am intrigued by the color correcting aspect.
I love Tarte Clean Slate because its an all natural product and also Revlon Beyond Natural Smoothing Primer. Both are by far the best primers I have tried so far (and I've tried a few). The help keep my makeup in place, combat oiliness, and don't make my sensitive skin break out.
Thanks for you lovely blog!
@Chandra good to know…im sure the Revlon one is also a little more affordable as well! @Marie… ive heard good things as well about the Laura Mercier Primer. LM products are great all around!
I actually need to purchase another bottle of this! It really did make my makeup stay on longer. I've also tried the Laura Mercier one and that was great too.
andee you have gorgeous skin! what kind of foundation do you use with this primer? im trying to find a new foundation routine:)
Thanks for this review! I've always been curious, yet a little intimidated, by primers! I think i'm going to have to give it a shot. You're always glowing!
Thanks helena! Ashley i use a few different foundations… im using my Armani Silk foundation alot lately. xo
Great review..Thanks..I have been reading your blog for a long time now and I think you should also start a fitness blog..any plans??
ive been wanting to try that foundation for so long now! is it amazing? ive been using nars sheer glow for awhile and i love it, but kinda want to venture out 🙂 what shade are you in the armani ??
Sireesha i have received some requests to do fitness posts…and its in the works! 🙂 Also a huge part of staying fit is what we eat. I have a HONEYBEE KITCHEN section where i share recipes and nutritional info. You can see how I cook certain meals to stay lean. xo
Ash I used to use NARS and really liked it. Armani Silk is great but im loving Chanel foundation even more right now. I will do a post soon! xo
Yay! Thank you i swear your the best beauty blogger!! Ive always wanted to try chanel also, im so bad with matching colors, and ive heard armani's color swatches are hard to match with skintones. You and i pretty much have the same skin tone, im pretty olive as well w/ dark hair. What actualy shades are you in armani and chanel? just so i can have some sort of starting point with colors and hopefully they will work for me:) Thank you so much for your help im still on the hunt for the perfect foundation and color match!! 🙂
