Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Smoothing Primer

I don’t have much experience with primers because I’m not a fan of the feeling of having so many things piled on to my face. I gave this one a try to hop on to the primer train and see if I am willing to add another step to my already-too-long makeup routine. This MUFE Step 1 Equalizer in Smoothing is supposed to smooth out the texture of the skin while keeping your makeup stay in place all day.


This product comes in a matte squeezy tube in a simple and sleek design. I also love how all the Equalizers are in different colours based on their purpose. The product comes out in a skinny spout that easily controls how much product you want to use.



The Skin Equalizers come in 10 formulas:

Mattifying Primer reduces shine for oily skin.
Smoothing Primer evens the skin’s texture.
Hydrating Primer preps normal skin and restores balance.
Nourishing Primer moisturizes and comforts.
Redness Correcting Primer neutralizes.

Radiant Primer Blue adds radiance to light skin.
Radiant Primer Pink adds radiance to light to medium skin.
Radiant Primer Yellow adds radiance to light to medium skin.
Radiant Primer Peach adds radiance to medium to tan skin.
Radiant Primer Caramel adds radiance to dark skin.


I picked up the Smoothing Primer for all my texture and pore size concerns. Once I applied a pea size amount of product, my skin felt instantly smooth. It feels just like the other “smoothing” and “pore minimizing” primers wherein a thin blurring film is attached to your face. It somehow minimizes the look of my pores but in no way hides it. It does smooth out the texture of my skin and I can’t help but touch it. I can’t directly compare it with the Benefit Porefessional because I haven’t tried that product yet. But basing on a tester sample, I’d say the texture and feel of both the products are similar.

Some days I just wear this on its own and it looks good, probably because of its moisturizing properties. Apparently it contains hyaluronic acid, ActiTensor 3D, and Regeactive that helps with hydration, smoothing, and firming .

Since it is supposed to prime the makeup, I’ve used this under foundations and didn’t really see much of a difference with the longevity of my overall look. I don’t typically wear my makeup that long to give a proper verdict with prolonging my makeup, but the smoothing aspect is definitely visible. Other than that, it’s an okay product. Not going to be my holy grail, but not a bad product overall.

PRICE: C$45 full size, C$20 travel size
