StudioMakeup Serum, Primer and Basis Swatches in addition to a giveaway!


STUDIOMAKEUP recently sent me a full set of the Flawless Skin Foundation, Hyaluronic Acid Rejuvenating Serum, and Silk Hydration Face Primer to try out. You know I am always looking for products that make my skin look great, so I was excited to try them out!

All STUDIOMAKEUP products are cruelty free. They are not tested on animals, the ingredients are not tested on animals, and they are not sold in China. The hyaluronic acid line discussed here is vegan with the exception of the primer.

Let's start with the STUDIOMAKEUP Hyaluronic Acid Rejuvenating Serum. It's important to start with clean, hydrated skin before applying the foundation. This is a simple formula with one major moisturizing ingredient that works on all skin types: hyaluronic acid. I appreciate the low number of ingredients in this oil-free product because I have sensitive, acne-prone skin that reacts to so many things! Whether you have dry, normal, or oily skin, this is a great moisturizing serum to use on its own or under heavier creams. It made my skin feel soft and clean – no heaviness or greasiness at all.

After you've moisturized your skin and added your sunscreen, you can apply the STUDIOMAKEUP Silk Hydration Face Primer. It's a lightweight silicone-free primer that helped fill in some of my larger pores to give a smooth look under the primer. Most primers contain silicone, but for those who avoid it, this is a great alternative. It goes perfectly with the Flawless Skin Foundation. This one is cruelty free but not vegan (contains some enzymes from eggs).

The Flawless Skin Foundation by STUDIOMAKEUP is a light foundation that is available in 10 colors. It is a thin formula that you need to shake before using. I usually don't like thinner formulas because I have large pores that need filling and acne scars to cover them. However, I found that pairing with the primer solved the pore problem. And I could overlay it for medium coverage. I found "Oat Soft" to be my closest match to skin tone. It gave me a nice "no makeup, just clean skin" which I always strive for! It doesn't contain any ingredients that cause acne in me (yay!), And it contains hyaluronic acid for easy, oil-free hydration. In contrast to the primer, it contains dimethicone.
