I have to admit that I’m still not quite sure what this is. I have thought it to be serum, but it is often listed under make-up and the description of the products ays that it is to be used as a primer under make-up.
It comes in 30ml pump bottle and retails for $24.
It is a goldish liquid (like a slightly more yellow version of Benefit’s Moonbeam) has a very runny consistency. A little goes a long way.
As for th illuminating properties, I haven’t noticed any. It is too yellow without enough pink to be illuminating. If you want a good illuminating product, go for Guerlain Meteorites Primer or Estee Lauder Spotlight (I don’t know if it is still made).
As fot the firming properties, there isn’t much to lift on my skin (I’m 25), but I have notices that my skin feels tighter after applying it. For me, this is very uncomfortable feeling, since my skin feels to small for my face, but those in need of a good lifting might appreciate it.
I don’t notice any difference in how my make-up applies when I use this prior to make-up application. Also, there isn’t any difference in how long my make-up lasts.
I’ve used it for 8 times so far, and there is still a bit left in the sample.
Oh, and I have forgotten to mention that it has a very intense lavender scent which disappears upon application.
