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.

NYX Pore Filler is a new silicone based primer from the brand that offers the ability to fill pores and give the appearance of smoother skin. The mattifying formula is the ideal pick to keep oily skin at bay.

Nip + Fab is a collection of affordable beauty fixes from the creator of the more prestigious (and expensive) Rodial line of products. Rodial isn’t a line of products within everyone’s reach as it does run on the pricey side so I feel like Nip + Fab is its affordable little sister that offers a selection of some pretty great little products that I’ve been testing out recently. Recently Nip + Fab has made its home at Target where as prior it was available within the UK.
Here’s some of my thoughts on their Make-Up Fix (hint, I love it!).
You can spend millions of dollars on color cosmetics but they are never going to look right without the proper prepping tools. Prepping prior to cosmetic application is key to allowing your blush, shadow, and lipstick to look its very best.
The new love of my priming life? Nip + Fab Sheer Make-Up Fix.
You NEED it.
