I think I may have found my match, but I needed some convincing given this liquid's appearance. I mean it is green, and not a pretty shade, an ugly one.
What Smashbox has figured out is that a primer should also help us even out skin tone problems, like redness and your dark spots. The green adjust version of Smashbox Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer helps some of my redness disappear and after a light fluff of powder, it is non-existent. They also make other colors like apricot for dull skin, purple to brighten, and a light version for all over smoothness.
The consistency is super silky, not oily, and makes putting on anything after it a breeze. Any brush just glides right over your face. You can find it at Ulta, another dangerous place for me to wander. But, if I find products like this I will go back again and again.
