It feels like AGES since i’ve sat down and written a review on a beauty product!
I am a huge fan of the Bourjois Happy Light Foundation so when, on a recent Boots trip, I spotted the matching primer, I knew I had to have it. There are two products in the Happy Light Primer range, Luminous which is for normal to dry skin and Matte which is meant for normal to combination skin. Both primers are suitable for all skin tones, and where it is a slightly peach pink colour, once applied to the skin and blended, the tint disappears.
One thing I love about any of the Bourjois products, is the packaging. It’s simple and so easy to use. A few people have complained about the glass packaging, but I am yet to shatter one, so for me this isn’t a problem. The liquid products always come with a pump as well, which for me, is a must. The bonus of a pump top is that there is no waste and you can control exactly how much product you want to use.
The texture of the Happy Light Luminous Serum Primer is so light and almost gel like. I use my fingertips to blend in the product, and it blends in with ease. It is really cooling on the skin, helping to refresh and moisturise. Although it is hydrating, it doesn’t encourage any oily areas which is great for me as I have quite an oily chin.
The primer is a mixture between a primer and a moisturising serum, meant for use under foundation or on its own. I have worn it on its own a couple of times and it looks lovely. Skin complexion feels and looks so much smoother, with a matte (natural) finish.
It works well with any foundations, especially with the Happy Light, helping them to last longer on the skin. It leaves a lovely flawless, almost airbrushed finish to my face and I just love it. It’s perfect for everyday use as it isn’t too obvious on the skin and doesn’t contain any glitter or shimmer.
What is your favourite primer? Any favourites?
