Physician’s Formula Spotlight Illuminating Primer Review

I’ve been really into illuminating primers lately, both on my clients and myself. These primers add a subtle layer of radiance that peeks through, looking natural, dewy and luminous.

I recently grabbed the and found it to be some real ethereal goodness that I just had to share with you.
Before we do that, are you wondering if you actually need an illuminating primer in your life? Well, I can answer that for you. The answer is yes, you probably do.

I like skin to have a healthy luminosity to it and these types of primers help to achieve that in a subtle way, no blinding highlights or strobing needed. I especially love this look on brides and those with dry skin.

How would one use ? Easy!
Just apply after your skincare, prior to foundation. You can also mix a pump directly into your foundation (or tinted moisturizer, BB cream, what have you) or press a bit on top for a highlight too!

The  seriously has so much going for it.
I absolutely love that it’s fragrance-free, plus paraben-free and gluten-free on top of that. It contains antioxidants, something called filtering pearls and everyone’s favorite-optical blurring agents.

Simply put, is a $13 dupe for pricier alternatives like the $38  and the also $38 .
Don’t get me wrong; I love both of those primers too, but I also love having an extra $25 in my bank account.

Do I recommend the ?
Oh you already know. Hell yeah. I love this and it’s a great value.

  2. Charlotte Tilbury Review - Wake Up For Makeup

    […] Here are the skincare and priming products that came in the Beauty Universe and what I thought of each.Goddess Skin Clay MaskThis is a really unique mask because it has clay but hydrates at the same time. It left my skin feeling happy; not dry or tight.Multi Miracle GlowI’ll admit; I was initially a little confused by this product. The concept is intriguing nonetheless. I love a cleansing balm but wouldn’t pay $60 for one, however, I love a sleeping mask and when I saw Charlotte use this for a gleam on the body, I couldn’t wait to try it on a model for a future photoshoot.Charlotte’s Magic CreamI wanted to hate this because come on; she’s ‘spensive. However, if I could afford to prime every client’s skin with this, I probably would, especially mature skin.Take It All OffThis isn’t anything exciting but it’s a nice makeup remover that doesn’t sting or irritate. Nothing you have to have, but nice to have.Supermodel BodyBeing that it’s winter in the midwest, I’ve not had the occasion to use this yet. However, for galas and special events, I can’t think of a better way to perk up pale skin and give it some glow/instant confidence. I bet all the Victoria’s Secret models wore this.WonderglowLike many luminous primers, this adds instant radiance to the skin, making your foundation appear more luminous. While it definitely has some great ingredients and a lovely effect, it’s a $55 primer and I do think you can get by with more affordable alternatives.  […]
