Korres Quercetin & Oak Antiageing Eye Primer Review

Ciao everyone, 

     A little while ago I was sent a new product to review, the Korres Quercetin & Oak Antiageing Eye Primer.  Here's how the product is described on the company's website :  "A 3-in-1 Eye Primer, Corrector, and Antiager. Provides a 360° smooth canvas around the delicate eye area, ensuring crease-proof, long-lasting eye shadow and concealer wear. Enriched with Quercetin & Oak extracts, it smoothes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to provide smooth, softer skin, while visibly improving skin texture".  I had never heard of the Korres brand before this so, of course I had to do a little research.  They are a natural skincare company founded in Greece.  According to their website, the goal of their company is to "use natural, herbal ingredients in an effective and safe way to make products [they're] proud of".  The key natural ingredient in the eye primer, Quercetin and Oak Extract, is a powerful antioxidant that helps to improve the signs of aging.


-What I liked about this product the most was that it claims to do three things: prime the eye for eye shadow, correct imperfections and darkness on and under the eye, and antiage your eyes (which is always good, even if you're young!).  

-I've used a lot of different eye primers.  It's such an important step, in my opinion, when applying eye shadow.  In comparison to others I've used, this one worked perfectly fine.  There was no creasing at all even after wearing eye makeup all day.  

-I loved that this product does something that most other primers don't do, which is help correct under-eye darkness.  I still needed concealer afterwards but, it did help.


-The price, $21, for 0.14 fl. oz., is a little higher than some other popular primers.  For example, Urban Decay Primer Potion ($19 for 0.37 oz.) and Too Faced Shadow Insurance ($18 for 0.35 oz.) are a little cheaper for more than twice the amount of product.  I suppose the fact that this product does more than most primers could be the reason for that but, I don't know if it would be my first choice.  I personally prefer some other primers I've used, maybe because I've used them for a while and because of the price per amount of product.  

Final Thoughts:

     In conclusion, this product did work well for me and did everything the company claimed it would.  If you are interested in more natural products or in anti-aging products, I would recommend checking this primer out.
