For someone who loves Makeup as much as I do, it’s shocking to admit that I’ve never actually used a Primer before! I’ve heard wonderful things about them and I know many beauty lovers will not apply their foundation without using one, therefore, when I was informed about Amazing Cosmetics Illuminate Primer & Highlighter – I knew that I had to see what the hype was about.
This gorgeous Primer is available in three different shades; Rose, Glow and Bronze – with each one offering a slight variation. I decided to go for the Rose shade, as I thought the Bronze would be too dark for my skin tone and the glow could be too shiny and ultimately I think I made the right decision! The Rose Primer aims to create soft highlights and a natural radiance in a sheer, rosy hue – with the product also being a rose gold colour.
The packaging also varies for each shade and I may be slightly biased, but I do have to say the Rose shade is simply gorgeous! It’s a beautiful vibrant pink and if you’re a girly girl, it will definitely fit with your think pink aesthetic. Furthermore, the product itself is a really good size and as only a small amount is needed when applying, it will definitely last you a good amount of time.
The great thing about this Primer is there are multiple ways in which you can wear it! For example, if you’re after a natural look, you can simply apply the product on it’s own for a subtle shimmering glow, or you can wear it under the base of your face makeup to help it last longer. Also, if you want to create an extra amount of highlight, you can apply it to your cheekbones after finishing your makeup. In doing this I found the product created a warm rosy tint on my cheeks, great for adding a sheen of colour!
As with all of my posts, I do feel that honesty and authenticity is key and as much as I love the packaging and adding priming to my makeup routine – I do feel that the price is quite expensive. At £28.99, this is definitely within the higher end range of products and although I really like it, I can’t help but thinking there could be other primers that are cheaper and just as good quality too. However, until I venture out to trying one – I will be continuing to use this one and see how it improves the longevity of my makeup. Ultimately, I’m happy to pay for a product if it’s long lasting and great quality, it often works out better then continuously buying lower quality products that may not last all too well.
