Product Review: ColoreScience Line Tamer and Skin Brightener

by Bionic Beauty on 14.Nov.2009 · 5 comments

Bionic Bronnie reviews one of ColoreScience’s most popular, and versatile, skin care products…

ColoreScience Line Tamer and Skin Brightener is a yellow-toned serum that absorbs into facial skin nicely. I started using it under makeup since it’s also designed as a primer, now I sometimes use it even without makeup. This is a great treatment for dark, puffy eyes. It reduces redness and is very soothing following waxing, microdermabrasion or facial other potentially harsh skin treatments.

While it’s not perfect as a moisturizer, it is effective as a pore reducer, skin mattifier and line refiner. My skin loves this serum! I keep a bottle in my purse for a quick touchup, especially on hot or humid days. Plus, it packs SPF 20! The bonus sun protection makes this little multitasker even more powerful. ColoreScience’s Line Tamer uses natural ingredients including Green Tea, Beta Carotene, Grape Seed and Vitamin E.

I tried this product, and I would like to ask a question about it. I took its name literally and tried to put it just where I wanted to conceal lines, and under my eyes when they were puffy. It did not seem to soak in very well. It did appear to diminish lines, but its yellow color just stayed there. I used my little fingertip and tried to keep it just where I wanted it to go. Was I not using it correctly? I would appreciate any comments. Thank you.

Hi Susan, Bronnie will be in touch soon with some answers for you. I haven’t tried this product yet, so I don’t want to give you any misleading information. She’ll be able to guide you correctly. In the meantime, could you post what skin type you are (oily, normal, combo, sensitive). Sometimes that helps us when answering reader Q’s.

I use this product on my clients all the time. I put a full pump all over the face like you would a moisturizer. You can use a small amount (like really small, a pin drop) as a “spackle” for wrinkles and pores. I put a tiny bit on my finger and warm it up a bit with my other finger and gently spackle it over the lines. If you see yellow your using too much. I find it softens the appearance of wrinkles and creates a smooth silky surface to apply makeup over. I see it as an amazing primer. I think it does what every other line smoothing product would. But what more can you ask for without a face lift or injections? Just remember it’s makeup, not magic. Hope that helps!

hmmmmmm I remember this…I do my entire routine, including moisturizing, then use it as a PRIMER….it is a bit dry alone.

It also help’s to warm it first in your hand’s.

I would try patting “color” or makeup over the top, or using a sponge, fingertip or brush to create a “stippling” effect. I do this when product’s don’t cooperate with each other and mix.

I do find it frustrating when product’s don’t play well with other’s!
