Hello! Working in a sweaty, humid office means that I’m always on the lookout for products that will keep my make up on my face. I bought the Bourjois Paris Happy Light Luminous Serum Primer when it first came out and I nabbed it on a promotional offer – yes, I’ve had it that long! I’m now halfway down the bottle and ready to share with you what I think… *mysterious music*
Bourjois Paris Happy Light Luminous Serum Primer
Bourjois’ NEW Happy Light Serum Luminous primers prep and prime the skin for a matte or luminous complexion in any light.
Its feather-light texture leaves skin soft and moisturised, with airbrush action.
First off, yes this product does come with a lid but mine looked so grubby I just couldn’t face taking a picture of it. I also gave the bottle a good shake to give the illusion of it being full, when in fact it’s now half empty *waggles eyebrows*. I was drawn to this product due to it’s similarity to one of my all time favourite primers, Benefit That Gal as they both have a pink tone designed to subtly brighten dull skin.
The primer is very light on the skin when applied due to it’s serum formula and it gives skin a soft, velvet feeling without weighing it down. It doesn’t make my skin feel dry, tight or weighed down but it isn’t that moisturising; I don’t feel it plumps my skin or hydrates it as claimed. I do not see a brightening effect on my skin, nor do I feel it helps my make up last longer – something that I expect primers to do. I’ve also tried mixing it with foundations to give me a brightening boost, but I haven’t seen a noticeable effect with that method either. I don’t feel it “refines my skin” nor does it give it an airbrush effect. All I get from this product is the velvet feeling texture and at £10.99, I expected a little more.
Have you tried this primer? What did you think?
