Korea’s Best-Selling Primer Is “Glass Skin” In A Compact
Housed inside a travel-friendly cushion compact, the primer fuses light-reflecting pearls with a combination of skin-conditioning ingredients, like niacinamide and adenosine, to create a 3D glow. To dispense the primer, which looks a lot like
unicorn blood, all you have to do is gently press down on the metal plate, and the opalescent formula appears. Rather than use the included cushion, I prefer to dip a brush directly into the product before swirling it all over my face. The result is a highlighted glow that creates that lit-from-within effect I’ve heard so much about, but rarely see. Makeup artist
Nam Vo calls it “the ultra-violet
underglow.”
