Review - Bourjois Happy Light Primers

It has been a while since Bourjois released their Happy Light Primers, I have been trying an abundance of things but have finally gotten round to giving these a rigorous testing and have made my opinion on these two, relatively new, products.


Happy Light Luminous Serum Primer
This primer is a very light, fresh texture on the skin. The texture is very much like a serum, it smooths into the skin and almost disappears, leaving no tacky residue. It smooths the skins texture and leaves a beautiful dewy finish. It has no shimmer so would be a great option for young and mature skins. Make-up applies beautifully on top of this product however, it doesn't do grand things for increasing the longevity of your makeup. It is a lovely option if you want to achieve a dewy glow without adding any shimmer to your face, plus this isn't too glowy so would look great on oily skin also. A great all rounder to smooth the skin and give it a healthy glow.

Happy Light Matte Serum Primer
I really enjoy the Luminous Serum Primer as the finish it gives is divine, however I feel the opposite about the Matte Primer. I had great hopes for this product as there aren't many great mattifying primers available and really wanted this to work. It has the same beautiful, light texture that sinks into the skin. However, it doesn't quite disappear like the Luminous version. When you begin to blend in foundation on top, the primer separates beneath the foundation, which leaves you with silicone patches all over your face and hair line... not an attractive look. If you like easy, low-maintenance make-up then this primer isn't for you. However, if you want a light textured primer that will help with oil-control, I suggest you use this sparsely and smooth it onto the skin, avoiding to blend or rub it in. I wish I loved this, however, it has ended up collecting dust in my make-up drawer.

A hit and miss from the new Bourjois Happy Light Primers,

which is your favourite of the two?
