Detail Makeover Illuminating Primer Oil Review

Detail Makeover Illuminating Primer Oil Review

The Detail Makeover Illuminating Primer Oil was my go-to when I had extremely dry skin. Everything was just dry, flaking, and I had to re-apply moisturizers and facial mists so frequently it was such a chore.

This was kind of my savior during those months.

Detail Makeover Illuminating Primer Oil Review
This primer oil comes in a glass bottle with a dropper and I'm just so grateful for the packaging. I mean I've tried using oil-products with pumps and gosh, it's just too messy and such a hassle to use. I love that I can control how much product I need using the pump. 

It's also not just a regular oil that contains glitters. I find that the specks are very, very fine and they never really settle in the bottom. You get what I mean? It's not something that you have to shake to mix the formula up before using. It's a grab-and-go, always ready to use primer and I think it's such an innovative product coming from a local brand. 

The oil doesn't feel sticky nor heavy. I find it to be lightweight, spreads easily on the face, and feels more like a moisturizer than oil. It really helped me during the months I had extremely dry and flaky skin as it created a smoother base for application.

As for creating a luminous base, I would have to say yes but only if you're not going to be wearing foundation or bb cream after. Because of my blemishes, I always use medium to full-coverage foundations and BB creams and I noticed that the luminosity doesn't really show up after the base. What you can do though is mix this Illuminating Primer Oil with your tacky foundations to have a smoother application. I also have oily skin again and I didn't really notice any oil-control properties. It would still depend on the foundation you're using.

Overall thoughts? It's a lightweight and non-greasy illuminating oil that has vitamin e which helps make skin feel softer and smoother. It's very hydrating and amazing for dry to normal skin types. It's something you can mix with moisturizers, BB creams, and light-coverage foundations to have a luminous finish and for easier application. It has a very subtle scent that I love and I would reccoment this Illuminating Primer Oil for those who deal with flaky skin. Didn't clog my pores and it never broke me out.

I used to think that having dry skin was a dream, but gosh, no. Everything was just so dry and chappy, and moisturizers didn't really work. This was kind of my 2-in-1 go-to, a moisturizer and primer before makeup.
