NP Set Brightening Pre-Foundation Primer Review & Swatches

NP Set Brightening Pre Foundation Primer 1

I always get so many questions about ways to brighten, whiten, or lighten skin. I do so feel like Queen Know It All when it comes to the topic as I’m typically one for overindulging in Asian whitening solutions.

Not everyone wants permanent results though, some folks just want a way to ease dullness or just a little brightening up. My suggestion is ALWAYS the same for this, a lilac base. They aren’t too common here in the US but primers, cream bases, etc…all lilac based in color, are fairly popular in the Asian market. It’s a temporary solution to ease dullness and to get skin looking whiter and brighter.

Surprisingly, NP Set released a Brightening Pre-Foundation Primer that can be purchased at Target.

Do have a look!

Lumene Arctic Aqua Moisture Booster Review

Lumene Arctic Aqua Moisture Booster 1

If you have drier skin I’m sure it proves challenging to wear powder products. Blush, minerals, finishing powder, it all looks less than smooth on a dry surface and heck, application of these products will sometimes even age you due to that dryness.

Moisturizer is sometimes not nearly enough. I know my struggle with dry skin takes an arsenal of products to tame. Mists, moisturizers, serums, etc….

There are a ton of hydrating primers on the market as well lately versus a few years ago when hydrating primers weren’t as popular and silicone based ones were the order of the day.

Now here’s a little treat that I’m enjoying at the moment from Lumene.

Lumene Arctic Aqua Moisture Booster, a super inexpensive way to inject a good deal of moisture into tired, dry skin.

Yes!

Please!
