SPLURGE: Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base
Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base ($48 or £34) is the foundation primer for those of us who don't like primers. On most days, I find my morning skincare ritual quite lengthy (SKII essence, eye cream, serum, moisturizer, sunscreen, then foundation) that I think adding another product would make me later than I normally am. However, this primer is actually worth being late 2 minutes.
So, what makes this primer my favorite? Well, it not only holds foundation in place like typical foundation primers, but it adds a luminous glow so I look effortlessly fresh. When worn alone, one pump of this lightweight primer give my skin a gentle, sheer shimmer that lasts all day. Under foundation, the wild rose extract continuously hydrates while my skin looks luminous not flat. Most of the time we add highlighter on top of our foundation to get that radiance, but Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base brings the radiance from underneath, making your skin look illuminated yet natural. I love how it's pearlized sheen evenly covers my skin without giving it too much shine, very subtle and natural. Not glittery.
How To Use: Apply one pump after moisturizer and sunscreen (if worn during the day). Can be worn with or without foundation. Also, can be used on top of foundation to highlight cheekbones, brow bones, etc. (in place of a powder highlighter). -lulu
