Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer

Magic Lumi Light I
Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer

Price & Size: $12.95 for 0.68 oz / 19 ml

As the name suggests, this is a brightening primer.  On a good skin day, I will put this on over my sunscreen, throw on some mascara and lip tint and call it a day.

Packaging: The primer comes with a pump dispenser, which is a hygienic distribution but will lose some product in the bottom of the container.  One or two pumps is sufficient to cover my face.  Pro tip: shake the container for a few seconds before using the pump.  Sometimes if I haven’t used it for a while the product will separate.

Formula: I tend to wear BB creams and light coverage foundation so I still see the “lumi” quality coming through.  Under a medium to full coverage foundation, it loses most of its brightening quality.  While the brightening quality does offer some light diffusion which smoothes skin, it offers little pore filling or long wear properties.  I will tend to wear it over my NYX pore filler silicone based primer and under my BB cream or foundation.

My favorite thing about it is how it looks in your hand.  Living up to the word “magic” in its name, the product looks like liquid mercury or something out of Harry Potter.  I’ve included a true swatch of this product at the bottom next to the swatches from the contour palette.

wet n wild products

Wet n Wild is a brand I have walked by in drug stores for years, but in my current area the selection is limitted so I had only picked up a couple products.  After spending some time on their website and acquainting myself with their awesome moto (All Access Beauty – a concept I love for a brand that sells such affordable and quality makeup) I decided I needed to give the products a try and placed an order.

Take on the Day Primer from Fergie Center Stage Collection [For my Primas]

For a $5 primer, this stuff is amazing.  I prefer it to the $7 Milani Eyeshadow Primer, which is both more runny and more yellow.  Wet n Wild’s Fergie Colleciton primer is a lighter neutral color.  As compared to the infamous Urban Decay Primer Potion, I think it is less tacky.  On days where I am lazy about my skin care routine, and thus have oilier lids, I find the Wet n Wild Primer doesn’t do as well, so for those with very oily lids it may not be a good choice.
