The latest primer from Illamasqua is for the radiance lovers. Presented in the same style pot as the Matte Veil Primer we reviewed back in April 2014 http://goo.gl/C4ngMi except the Illamasqua logo is in a holographic print.
This primer is a much thicker texture than the matte finish, it has a texture similar to a whipped cream. This product is a primer/illuminator mix and coats the skin in a golden pearl sheen.
It's by no means a natural highlight but quite a strong glaze of gold on the skin. The highlighting pigments are super fine glitter particles rather than a moisturising sheen or gloss.
It doesn't feel greasy or moisturising so would be suitable for all skins, even oily.
We wouldn't really use this all over the face, it's quite intense. Buffing it onto the areas of the face you require a highlight works best or if you do want to wear it all over then mix a tiny amount in with your foundation and blend together over the face.
The cream dries off pretty quick and if not correctly blended it can collect in an area and be tricky to blend, we found applying with a slightly damp brush helped to blend evenly.
This primer is £32 for a 30ml pot which would last ages. It's available now from http://www.illamasqua.com
