Loreal Magic Lumi Primer

Love glowy dewy skin in the spring time. I have oily combination skin and I never thought I would say I love dewy look ever. Yes, there is a difference between dewy and oily greasy look. 

I tried to stay away from products which promise luminous glow. I thought with my skin type, I don't need additional "shine" on my face. But with the right products, the glowy finish could really be pretty.

I recently discovered Loreal Magic Lumi light infusing primer. This has been around for a while but I never thought this would be right for my skin type.

The texture is very smooth and silky. Typical for most primers. It has a pearl finish which gives the skin the glow lumi effect.

I would not say that this primer makes a significant difference in helping my foundation stay longer. But this one does not make my skin oily at the end of the day. I like to use this with my holy grail foundation which is the Marc Jacobs Genius Gel Foundation as I don't need to set it with powder so the pearl glow primer could still peek through. 

Have you been avoiding certain beauty products fearing that they may not work but once you try, you are so happy you did?


  1. The shimmer looks very pretty! I actually ordered a bottle to use is as a highlighter but I received a dud with separated liquid inside. Drugstore.com kindly refunded my money but I was so ready to like this one! Glad to hear you're happy with it. I might give it another try. :)

  2. I tend to be super cautious with 'lumious' products too, but I do love a soft dewy finish (and not overly shiny lol). This sounds promising, I like the subtle glow it gives in your swatch!
