With the holidays just around the corner (also, how did that happen?!), it’s time to start thinking about what gifts you’ll be giving the special people in your life. My mom reads this blog every day (hi, mom!) but I already know she’s getting her own. Ever since I introduced it to her and gave her a tutorial, she’s been hooked and asks me to bring it every time I come to visit. ;)
I’ve partnered/talked about Luminess a couple of times on the blog before (see here and here) and that’s 100% because I love this product. So when they send me new items to try, I never say no. This time around? The Mystic Foundation… one word: OBSESSED. Convenience is key for me, especially since I work out early in the morning and usually start my day immediately after. Being able to apply a light layer upon waking up and basically walk straight out the door (after brushing my teeth, obviously) and not have to worry about primer or concealer has been a game changer.
So yes, you heard that right. This Mystic foundation comes in an array of shades to match your skin type (I tried on Shade 6, and that is good for me when I have a spray tan, but my day to day is Shade 5!) and the primer, concealer and corrector are all in that magical little bottle. If you look closely at my application photos, you can see that my skin is a little uneven. I get some red tones and have quite a bit of freckles from the sun (whoops), but if you scroll down to my “after” photo – that’s about as real as it gets. That’s with 2 light layers of this stuff, guys. Threw on some lipstick, a little blush, filled in the brows and I’m out the door.
I’ve also talked about how easy and convenient this little Luminess Air is to travel with. It basically comes with me every where. It’s anything but intimidating. I promise.
For this application, I did 2 layers with about 4 pumps each time. I find that I like a little more than what the instructions call for, but you’ll figure out what works best for you. ;) And for my girls who are acne prone, don’t worry. Mystic is infused with neem extract for its anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. The antioxidant compounds soothe inflammation and help defend your skin against age-promoting free radicals. That’s what I’m talking about.
And as I always mention, this product lasts up to 18 hours, is water and sweat resistant (perfect for the gym) and most importantly (in my opinion) it’s oil free, fragrance free, paraben free and never tested on animals.
And ta-da! Here’s the result. I’m a lifer, as you guys have probably already figured out. You can get yours here, and don’t forget about the women in your life! Perfect holiday gift, if you ask me. x
