How Does A Gold Flake-Infused Primer Feel On The Skin, You Ask?
Pretty damn luxurious, is what. Our reader Xue takes what could be a cult classic on a test drive and came to a stunning – pun intended – conclusion.| July 9, 2018
Welcome to KULALA Beauty Club, where YOU our dear readers help us suss out the best in the beautysphere. This week, we brought back Xue (@grumpymeg) to review the Guerlain L’Or Radiance Concentrate With Pure Gold. Read her last review here.
Upon ripping open my KULALA beauty pack I gave an involuntary “Ooh!”, but admittedly had no idea what it was. All I thought of was that it would totally fit in with the rest of my vanity with all that gold. I was later delighted to find out that it was a gold-infused primer from Guerlain, which came just in time to replace my current primer that was running a bit low.
A quick search on Guerlain’s website revealed that the gold flakes provide that glow and radiance. Of course! Like all other primers, it also promises to retain moisture, enhance your make-up and make it last longer – which it did.
Here comes the real question: how does it really feel to spread gold all over my face? Well, it feels pretty damn luxurious! The gel spreads out smoothly, the gold flakes dissolved well and the formula sinks into the skin quickly. A few specks of gold remained on my skin though – not that I minded!
I don’t use foundation, but my concealer blended in smoothly and the primer also gave my skin an all-over even radiance. One thing I really like about it is how it hydrates the areas on my skin where it is usually drier and flakier, which allows the makeup to sit well, too. A little also goes a long way, and definitely don’t apply too much or your skin will go from satin smooth to sticky instead.
With this primer living up to its claims – and looking so damn pretty while at it – I think Guerlain’s L’Or makeup base is truly worth its weight in gold.
