On oily skin it extends the wear of my makeup (by ~3 hours) and smooths the pores. I did not care for it I when I was applying with a brush. Lately, I apply with fingers, patting in a thin layer and then smoothing it over the face. It takes some tries to get it right but my skin feels good with just this on and my texture issues seem to be solved. As for the color correcting properties, I would not depend on these for heavy discoloration. However, It is a fantastic primer that I will be repurchasing.
