I tried priming with Physicians Formula Organic Wear Bright Booster Oil Elixir about two weeks ago because my skin was just war-torn courtesy too much air conditioner. I thought a tiny drop or two prior to my moisturizer in the morning would make my foundation apply easier and look fresher. But as always, facial oil anything in the AM is a no go for me. It just makes me into a greasy mess and my makeup seems to melt off. I mean if you wear minimal makeup you might be able to get away with a drop but personally, even with dry skin it doesn’t really work for me.
Josie Maran Argan Moonstone Drops Makeup Priming and Highlighting Oil joins the round of “primer facial oils” with a weightless formula that not only preps for makeup but also leaves your complexion with a dewy moonlit glow. These iridescent drops can be mixed with foundation, applied on your lips, or even subtly blended on your cheek bones to add a touch of a glow. The hydrating argan oil base acts to prep skin for foundation and apparently PhytoVie Defense helps fight against free radical damage and extends makeup wear.
As for me, well, I’m stepping back. The glow and the oil might be a little too much for me. Being shiny and glow-y isn’t quite the look for me.
