One of my very favorite primers is the NARS Pore Refining Primer. Ever since NARS Head Artist Cindy Rodriguez used it on me last summer in a video shoot, it has been my go to. NARS recently launched a new primer that takes the Pore Refining Primer up to the next level as it adds radiance enhancers to it that makes skin look even more beautiful before putting makeup. Meet NARS Light Optimizing Primer.
NARS added special light enhancing and radiance inducing properties to make this primer make skin glow. As I stroke it over my face, the white liquid, which is thicker than their other primers, leaves skin aglow. If you closely, you can see a subtle pink gold opalescent looking sheen. Nothing shimmery or too glowy, just a subtle glow that makes lines seem to fade and make skin look better. When I apply foundation over it, it seems to glide on easier and get a better hold on my skin. The subtle glow comes through and leaves my skin looking radiant.
This primer also includes a broad spectrum SPF 15, and we all know how important that is. To get this in a primer when you might not have it or want it in your daily moisturizer or foundation is a huge plus.
NARS Light Optimizing Primer is available for $34.00 at all NARS locations, Sephora and online at narscosmetics.com now.
