• No7 Skin Illuminator

    I thought I would shake up the photography game today, still keeping my pink theme of course, but I thought this was cool. I ran out of my MAC Prep + Prime the other day and I was having a panic because I had no primer left and I didn’t want to use my moisturizer as that is way to heavy to use as a primer. So I had a look through my drawers and I found this little gem! I wasn’t even sure whether it would do the right job but I tried it out. It turns out this was actually my Mums (Sorry Mum for taking it) and it is a little sample she received after she bought her foundation and a lipstick.
    I did not know what to expect at all considering it was really out of the blue trying this product, however I was pleasantly surprised. When you look at it from the tube, it looks more like a liquid eyeshadow because it is like a gold liquid, however for a sample I thought it was a reasonably sized product! You can get it in two different shades, Nude and Bronze depending on your skin tone.
    I used this before putting my foundation on, and I found I have to use a little more product than I would normal use for a primer because it is quite thick in consistency, and because of this it too a little longer to dry, however it didn’t feel heavy on my skin. Because of this I really liked the consistency and it made my skin feel soft. It gave my skin a really healthy glow and I felt like it gave me a really natural radiance to my complexion. This might be due to the gold shimmer in the product, and it primed my face really well.
    I was finding myself put this on my face on days I wasn’t wearing makeup because it and me look more awake and look fresh. You need to make sure you blend it well because as it is a gold product you will have gold patches on your face if you don’t blend it.
    I have found this to be really good on my skin too. Lately I have been blessed by the skin gods and my skin is pretty good, which I would like to point out is rather unusual for me, however it has worked wonders on my dry skin and I feel like it helped conceal it and protect it well from my foundation.
    You could also use this product as a natural highlight on your cheekbones and in the inner corner of your eye. It won’t be as pigmented as powder highlighter but I tried it out and it gave me a natural shimmer which I actually got complimented on!
    It is £12.50 for the full sized product from Boots and I think this is really good value considering you can get multiple uses out of it.

        Yes 100% it is so worth it! I hate not using a primer! To me I really feel like it is easier to apply your foundation with one and it is better for your skin!

      Is there visible shimmer in this? Please share swatches!!! xx

        You can’t really swatch it because its a primer so rubs in clear but it does leave a bit of shimmer on your face x

          Ohh ok! And does it have a visibly dewy finish? xx

          • 30/06/2017 / 9:23 pm

            Slightly but after you put your foundation on you can’t tell. I wouldn’t say its dewy more that it really brightens your skin!!
