Pearl Radiance Primer.

Pearl Radiance Primer – Body Shop, Lily Cole Collection
A little bit of a different post today, but I felt the need to let you know about this Primer (everytime I go to type ‘primer’ I type Primark.. oh dear Laura) If you are not familiar with what a primer is, (I’m sure you are..) it is a great product for wearing under foundation. It tends to help foundation glide on the skin as well as help keep its staying power. 
I used to use the Bodyshop Primer called Matte it which is another great product, especially if you like the matte look. Anyway, I run out so went to buy some more, the Body Shop I visited were sold out so the nice sales assistant gave me a sample of the above primer saying that I might actually prefer it – I was very doubtful of this because I’m not really one for change and I tend to like what I like.. but I have to say she was right, I do prefer this! I used the tester once and went back to buy it as soon as possible. (The great thing about Bodyshop is that they are always happy to give you a tester so you can try something before you buy it)
As you can see from the photos it has little micro beads which disperse when the product pumps out, because of these beads you do need to work it into the skin a little more, but I find this doesnt take too much extra time. It has a pearlescent base which gives the skin a dewey, healthy glowand this still remains after foundation. I find that my foundation lasts longer with this product and I actually don’t feel like I use as much foundation over it because of the healthy glow it gives my skin before hand. The  website says that you can also use this product on its own.. now if I had read this before I tried it, I would probably wonder why you’d want to use it alone because it isnt a foundation/cover up product, but after using it I understand why – it makes your skin look so much healthier (and if you need a bit of cover you can always use some concealer) A great product for holiday, I am thinking breakfast time when you don’t want to wear makeup, but feel like you need something.. perfect product!
Apparently it is Lily Cole’s favourite product from her range and I can definitely see why! Have you tried anything from the new Lily Cole range
Also let me know in the comments if you like or dislike to see these makeup posts now and then – I never know wether to put them up or not. Me blog is obviously more fashion based but sometimes I feel like I want to write a makeup post – I’m pretty addicted to makeup products as well you know!

I was tempted to buy this when I had a 40% off voucher a couple of weeks ago, I wish I had now because it sounds great! 🙂 xx

I’ve never tried body shop primer before but after that review I definitely will
It sounds fab!

Wow! I love primers and this one is so lovely! I’m curious to test!


I thought this had a brush when I glanced at in the the shop, like one of those bronzer ball brush thing. I will definitely be trying this out!

Ahh yes, no it is a pump! Definitely try it out! x

I really like the look of the primer, but looks like it’d give a dewy finish not matte but I have dry skin so might have to go in and ask for sample myself xx

It is good because I find it is quite moisturising on the skin! x

Loving the makeup post! Variety is the spice of life and all that :-)!

This product looks really interesting I like the idea of the beads literally popping as the product disperses, is that weird? I grabbed a quick look at the Lily Cole range a while ago but didn’t have chance to have a proper play with the products but I might have to go and swatch this…

Glad you like the makeup post 🙂
Hahaha no, I get you on that one. Would be even better if they sounded like bubblewrap as they come out! haha x

This looks really good! I will be definitely purchasing this when payday comes! x

I have the body shop matte primer. I fancy testing this one out now too, as I love L’oreal Lumi Magique one too!

You will really like this then! x

Sounds great! Too bad the Lily Cole range isn’t stocked in Australia.

What a shame! Maybe they will expand it, fingers crossed! x
