primers: radiance

GUERLAIN BLANC DE PERLE LIGHTENING UV BASE SPF 30* 
REVLON SKIN LIGHTS IN PEACH LIGHT 
LAURA MERCIER RADIANCE PRIMER 
Radiance primers aren’t new to the market but who doesn’t want to look fresh and glowing. Brightening primers can smooth the complexion, perk up tired looking skin and provide a youthful glow. Whats not to like? Remember that Radiance doesn’t equal glitter - here are my picks of brightening bases.

Revlon Skinlights is my budget option to my brightening priming line up. It's a liquid highlighter, but I like to use it pre-foundation as a base. I like all three shades of Skinlights but I think peach is a little more flattering on warmer skin tones like my own.  A nice way to use it is to mix it with foundation it gives the a dewy skin look. Guerlain Blanc De Perle Lightening UV Base SPF 30 is the fanciest of the threesome I've picked out. It provides a skin friendly protective barrier between the skin and makeup, complete with a pearly finish. A light veil of pink which brightens the complexion and corrects dark spots. It also contains SPF for ultimate skin protection. Finally, we have my favourite radiance primer - Laura Mercier Radiance Primer. A peachy pearly primer which evens out the skin tone brings a bit of luminosity to lacklustre skin and helps makeup last all day.

  3. i've had a look at the revlon one in the shops but it seems so dark i'm not sure if the colouring would be too much since i'm really pale, which is a shame because it looks like a great budget option. the laura mercier one seems to have been a favourite of every beauty blogger at one point or another but i've still never gotten around to trying it, but it's still on my list!

  11. Every time I go to the drugstore, I always want to buy the Revlon one. I'm just scared that if I use it, my face will look to dewy. I might have to buy it and just get it try. Why not!

  12. I'm always wary of trying primers with too much shine in them due to my oily skin! I've heard great things about the Revlon one so I think I'll give that a go :)

    My Name is Vicky Lorimer, I am From Manchester in United Kingdom.i am hear to give testimony of how i got back my husband, we got married for more than 9 years and have gotten two kids. thing were going well with us and we are always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treat me and the kids. later that month he did not come home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do,i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted Dr Brave for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after a week my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still love me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that Dr Brave casted on him that make him to come back to me today,me and my family are now happy again today. thank you Dr Brave for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact bravespellcaster@gmail.com. and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay.
