Hourglass Cosmetics 28 Primer Serum

Remember my post with a preview of Hourglass’ 28 Primer Serum?

Here is what Hourglass say about it:

“It’s a hydrating oil blend that nurtures skin as it prepares it for makeup. The “28” refers to the many beneficial botanical ingredients (Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Eucalyptus & more) – it’s pretty much heaven in a bottle!Water resistant and it’s suitable for all skin types! ”

“It is a silky, luxurious oil blend that glides on to create a retexturized surface for foundation, hydrates the complexion and triggers a sensory experience with a host of fragrant essential oils. Suitable for all skin types. Formulated with 28 beneficial ingredients (14 essential oils, 10 lipid-rich oils and 4 vitamins).”

Sounds amazing to me. In the US it should be available in May (at Sephora). I assume the price will be around $50. So  we may get it before summer, too (Zuneta or Liberty).

Rave: Satin Primer by Illamasqua. Review and Photos

I have the Satin Primer and today I will review it. I also wanted to get the Under-Eye Concealer but my shade (UC135) is out of stock right now.   And  if a certain product is out of stock this can be for a long time.

But back to Satin Primer (£19)

This is what is written about it:

An artist always prepares their canvas. Use under foundation or on its own for a smooth, even base that is protected from the elements. Containing UVA and UVB filters, Illamasqua Satin Primer lifts and highlights the face, creating a stunning dewy effect to enhance the siren within.

And now my thoughts!

I have a very dry skin and almost every foundation looks horrible on me if I don’t use a moisturizer before. But even this doesn’t give me a guarantee that I will have a flawless makeup. Now everything is different with this Primer. I have it since December and I am very happy with it. Here are only some reasons why:

  • It has SPF 20 so  it protects your skin
  • The skin looks healthy and feels moisturized. It gives the most amazing dewy finish which looks super sexy!
  • It is easy to apply foundation and concealer.
  • I don’t have a feeling of
