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.
