This ‘professional’ skin primer is supposed to add some radiance to dull looking skin – in fact, despite the pink tones, the only thing that shone through was way, way too much sparkle. It’s far too glittery to be used during the day unless you want to impersonate tinsle, and I’m not sure I’d use it at night either. Its quite a common beauty brand trend (and mistake, in my view) to chuck some sparkle in a product and label it ‘radiance enhancing’ instead of putting in proper ingredients such as ultra-fine irridescent pigments that really will catch the light in a way that is appropriate. We do not all want to look like the tree fairy, thank you. There is also a miniscule picture ‘instruction’ on the bottle of a cheek and a ‘to the ear’ pointing arrow. And, it means what? Add to cheeks in a upward direction possibly, but in that case why would anyone just want radiant cheeks. Wouldn’t the better option be to look radiant everywhere on the face? Sigh. I give up.
