    Comments about Lorac Light Source 3-in-1 Illuminating Primer:

    Where has this been all my life?!! I received a small sample size in a kit I believe, I got the color Dawn which is a gorgeous pinky, purplely, with slight champagne shift. When I first swatched it I was like aw dang, that's not gonna fit my skin tone (medium to tan with super strong yellow/olive undertones). I tried it anyway because I give everything a shot, you never know. Wow. Just wow. What a stunner!!! It totally blended into a soft, minky, natural rosy hue with a hint of purple juiciness that made me glow in the most expensive yet natural way ever. Blows my Becca shimmering light perfector out of the water!!! This is SO smooth, so creamy and extremely blendable and workable (layerable). Stays put, doesn't move, doesn't budge, under or over foundation, its simply a dream of a medium to work with.
    I have fallen head over heels with this guy and bought the darker shade Dusk which is a sexy golden bronze. I usually mix shades for different skin tones but both work well alone too. Any age, any skin type can use this I believe, at least I havent had any issues on clients. I have pretty oily skin and live in the beautiful state of Texas with lovely 106 degree weather and it's stayed put. That should tell ya somethin!

      I received this as a sample with my order. I got Dusk and Dawn. Dusk is gold as it looks, but Dawn was my favorite; it has a unicorn-ish purple sheen as a highlighter. It works as a highlighter alone and a moisturizer under makeup

            Comments about Lorac Light Source 3-in-1 Illuminating Primer:

            This primer is fantastic. It has a sticky consistency so the foundation you put on really adheres to your skin well, and it also gives a glow from within type of look. The reason I took 1 star off is because I notice that I break out around my chin everytime I use this primer. It's not insanely bad breakouts, but it's still annoying.

                    Unfortunately, we do not have a definite answer for you on this one. LORAC is not able to comment on a product's effectivness (the spf product) that we do not manufacture. We would suggest consulting with your dermatologist before sun exposure.
