Review | Figs&Rouge Pore Correcting Velvet Cream

Figs&Rouge Pore Correcting Velvet Cream

This is what it says on the Figs&Rouge website:

+ Innovative Pore perfecting formulation with a replenishing & hydrating matte effect
+ Brightening complex with Vitamins A,C & E helps restore natural radiance
+ Purifying & perfecting Salicylic Acid helps unclog & reduce pore size
+ Smoothing hyaluronic acid helps restore long – lasting vitality


Blend onto T-Zone & over enlarged pore areas with finger-tips before applying Make-up.
Alternatively wear over moisturiser for a nude matte look.

So, I got this in a subscription box a few months ago, and I got very excited since I’m always in need of a good, mattifying/poreminimizing primer, but this does not impress me at all.

Now, it claims that it’s a pore perfecting formula, which to me, means somewhat poreminimizing, or at least a little blurring, but it doesn’t do anything for my pores, or fine lines.
It doesn’t blur or smooth at all for me, and that’s a huge drawback.
And when it comes to the mattifying claim, I can’t say that I agree with that either, because I got oily within a few hours, and I think it should keep my oils under control for, at least, a couple more.

However, this does say that you can use it over a moisturiser, so it might be better if you use it on a regular basis as a “skincare” product, but as a primer I wouldn’t recommend this if you have oily skin.

You can get this at for £35.
