The primers that do so much more than extend the wear of your makeup

Here’s what our Review Crew® thought of these two multitasking primers

Primers are the secret weapon in so many women’s makeup kits. But given our love for multitasking, time-saving products and our never-ending obsession with imparting a little more glow into our complexions, it’s no surprise that we’d much rather reach for a multipurpose primer than a traditional one. LUMA’s two primers fit the bill perfectly: The LUMA Liquid Light Illuminating Primer delivers a natural, lit-from-within glow that you would gladly wear all on its own (or of course, you can pop it on under your foundation) and it also looks after your skin in the process with a moisture-boosting formula packed with vitamins A and E.

If a sun-kissed base is more your style, then the LUMA Natural Radiance Bronzing Primer should be your go-to. Its formula combines crushed pearls, a bronze tint and nourishing grapeseed oil and vitamins A and E for a pretty and pampering finish.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent LUMA Liquid Light Illuminating Primer and LUMA Natural Radiance Bronzing Primer to women aged between 24 and 36 of all skin types who were looking for a primer that would deliver a luminous glow.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the LUMA Liquid Light Illuminating Primer:

How beautiful it looked when worn on its own: More than just a great primer, our Review Crew® members enjoyed wearing this formula on its own, saying it gave their skin a healthy, dewy appearance.

The pearlescent sheen it imparts onto skin: Instead of using shimmer to create a luminous glow, this primer has a soft pink pearlescent formula thanks to the addition of crushed pearls. Members loved how natural-looking the end result was.

The added benefits beyond priming: This product was praised for being a great primer, ensuring foundation stayed in place throughout the day. Reviewers also loved the additional moisturising and anti-ageing benefits they received from the nourishing vitamin A and E-enriched formula.

The verdict

“I love to use this illuminating primer underneath my foundation to give a soft focus glow to my skin. I find that it blurs the skin and gives a light glow so you look refreshed on your face. Good if you feel your skin is a bit dull and great for an anti-ageing product!”

“I actually loved both the LUMA Natural Radiance Bronzing Primer and the LUMA Illuminating Primer. The Illuminating Primer created a fantastic base under my foundation and didn’t ball up with my face cream either. If you don’t feel like wearing too much makeup, either product looks beautiful on its own, just make sure you blend!! Will buy this in the future.”

“Thank you LUMA and Beauty Crew for this wonderful trial! I thoroughly enjoyed using this primer. I have combination skin and tend to avoid illuminating primers but I don't like having a super matte/dull finish either. This primer gave me the perfect glow without looking too dewy/shiny. It did a great job keeping my foundation in place and I just really love the finish. Super stoked with this primer and the price too! Highly recommended!”

In addition to the illuminating primer, our Review Crew® testers also received the LUMA Natural Radiance Bronzing Primer.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the LUMA Natural Radiance Bronzing Primer

The sun-kissed glow it gave skin: Reviewers loved switching between the two LUMA primers, turning to the illuminating primer for a daily dose of radiance, and the bronzing primer when they wanted a warm sun-kissed glow.

All the different ways they could use it: Review Crew® members loved using this bronzing primer in a number of ways – under their foundation, on its own, mixed with their foundation and even layered on top of their makeup. 

How lightweight it felt on their skin: Members found the primer smoothed on easily and felt light and comfortable on their skin.

The verdict

“I was really pleased when using this product and [with] its overall effect. I used it underneath my foundation and it provided a radiant glow and left my skin feeling hydrated and smooth. The radiant bronzer was perfect for a light bronzed glow and there was no need to use foundation in conjunction with this product. Overall both of these products were a pleasure to use!”

“I never thought I would have use for an illuminating bronzer but this is now a product I NEED in my life. The finish is so nice and non-sticky and I am able to use this product [in] different ways. Under or mixed with a foundation that is lighter for me gives it a perfect tone for my skin. I have also used this on its own just as a quick fix on the go for a quick outing and it was absolutely stunning throughout the day. I recommend this product to anyone who likes a bit of a bronze glow.”

“I have used this product for about a week, with and without makeup. It has a lovely consistency and doesn’t look sparkly or fake. I used a number of application techniques, but the best method was mixing this with foundation and applying the mix to my skin.”
