After figuring out for a long time if I should buy something from the Lumene Invisible Illumination collection, I finally got something. Product pricetags were a little bit too high for me, but as you might have noticed, I’m a little bit obsessed with their skincare at the moment. So, of course, I wanted to try something else too! Me being the natural kid in the block, chose the UV primer with a little shimmer. One bottle goes for around 30€, which is too pricey for me, but I needed to try it, and I will repurchase it. And might get the other things also.
Okay, I need to say something. I don’t think that I would buy something like this for that price if this weren’t a Finnish brand since I want to support local as much as I can, and especially when they seem to focus on customers, and not just make as much money as possible. I feel like Lumene is mostly about empowering everyone and making them feel confident in their skin. Looking natural and fierce at the same time. At least I felt like that when I tried testing more of their products and started focusing more on Lumene.
Bad or good things first? Let’s get the worst things first. I have been using more than a week this primer now without any makeup, and overall, it has been amazing. However, if I sweat a lot, it makes my face look so horrible and sweaty! My skin is mostly oily on my T-zone, but cheeks are dry. But the primer makes my whole face look awful. And that’s the only problem! And the fix for it? I don’t use the product when I know that I’m going to be sweating my ass off.
However, when using the product on a day to day basis, I’m obsessed. As you already know, I’m lazy with makeup, and rarely put any thought into it. Still, I love to look and feel fresh every single day. And this is where the primer shine! After my morning shower, I tap a little on my face and next, and wola! That’s it. Then I’ll add mascara if I want. It takes about 30 seconds to do my whole face.
The product is very lightweight, so it’s easy to use. Feels a bit tacky for couple minutes after putting it on, but which primer doesn’t? Okay, I don’t have much experience with those, but what I have heard! The bottle design is lovely and sturdy, as you can see. How can you not put that on a shelf to see it every day?
And what does the product does? Makes your face glow and shine so naturally and beautifully. I didn’t take photos of my face, because sometimes I’m not very comfortable with closeup photos, but you can see the shine on my hand too. Isn’t it lovely? And so natural, as I said already?
So, do I recommend? Yes. Definitely. I would love to get the other products of this collection too someday. Now I need to wait for the sales…
