5 shades of sparkling pearls give luminosity and radiance for perfection every day
The primer is cutely named bonbon, which i find very fitting, and there is no denying that this primer is beautiful.
But, does it deliver? Yes and no.
While i found myself seduced by the look if the product and the concept- pretty, pearl beads suspended in a primer fluid which when you press on the pump, burst and mingle with the fluid to create a sparkling hue, i wasn’t entirely impressed with the formula.
While i like a dewey, fresh look, i don’t like too much sparkle or glitter, and i felt that this product was a more beautiful that it was effective.
The fluid left my skin soft and silky, a great base for my foundation, but i really couldn’t get over the sparkly, glittery bits that were left in it too.
I love fairies, but it doesn’t mean i want to go to work looking like one.
That said, its a lovely product and if you like a shimmery, sparkly look, this is for you.
