40 Days and 40 Nights of Primer Reviews
We're halfway there, whoa-oh! Livin' on a prayer, take my hand and we'll make it I swear! Livin' on a prayer!
I could not resist some Bon Jovi this morning! But Primer #20 marks our halfway there to our 40 Primers In 40 Days!
And so to celebrate, I will review one of my new favorites, a beautiful product from Bourjois, called Complexion Illuminating Highlighting Veil. The back of the tube instructs me to use this product alone or dabbed over foundation, but I love it as a primer and I'll tell you why. This product is a soft and pretty pearly pink-white with a touch of iridescence, a hint of a soft scent, and a smooth light texture. The tube is, as most Bourjois products, the shade of the product contained inside. I love that about Bourjois. My eyesight seems to be getting worse and worse lately, and with Bourjois products, all I need to do is see the container to know what's inside. No trying to read teeny labels to figure out which of all those black-container shadows I want to use in the morning! Bourjois is perfect for me.
The Highlighting Veil gives the prettiest glow under my La Prairie, it does not add thickness nor does it fill in lines or pores, but the light-reflective quality softens facial 'flaws' and looks youthful and fresh. I've even used this product under my eyeshadow as an eye primer too, and dabbed some on my cheeks over blush, above the brow for an evening shimmer, and still I have not run out of ideas for using it. Grab one soon at Sephora since this is a limited edition for a pretty pink Spring collection. I've backed mine up already, of course, (pre-Lent, MardiGras spurge!) and I'm glad I did.
Tomorrow, on to the second half of our Primer journey! Journey? That's another band. Sorry, Jon!
