Review: Gressa Lumière Luminous Complexion Fluid
Gressa Skin’s Minimalist Corrective Serum Foundation may or may not have a cult following (who are we kidding—yours truly is a certified member), but this special brand has been crafting innovative new makeup products that totally deserve some of the Serum Foundation’s spotlight.
Gressa now offers a well-edited makeup collection, and the products share a common feature—everything feels weightless and looks natural while completely transforming the health of your skin.
I adore the new Lumière Luminous Complexion Fluid for that reason. It’s a super pigmented serum for cheeks, lips and eyes that provides a bright flush of color wherever it lands. It blends superbly, especially over the Serum Foundation, and absorbs into the skin almost like a stain, leaving nothing but the color behind. I’m using Elise, a fresh and youthful pink, and I can’t wait to try the coral version called Amelia. Seriously, this product will last forever—you only need the equivalent of a pinprick of the Lumière per application, and that will provide enough color for both cheeks and the lips.
To apply, I pump a tiny dot of the serum onto the tip of my finger, and then divide that between my cheeks and blend. Sometimes I use the Air Focus Foundation Brush for a totally seamless glow, but fingers work great here. Whatever remains on my finger gets dabbed onto my lips. You can also use a little pump of the serum for the lips alone and get a bolder color payoff. I tried using Elise on my eyes, and it gave me a very fun Jem and the Holograms vibe that I enjoyed in the comfort of my own home—maybe pink isn’t the best eye shadow color for me, but I’m betting the coral version would look pretty and fresh.
I love makeup that’s easy and multipurpose, and the Lumière Luminous Complexion Fluid is just that. Throw the little pump bottle in your purse for a quick after lunch skin boost. This makeup is composed of skin foods like broccoli seed oil, rosehip seed oil, sea buckthorn seed oil and CoEnzymeQ10, so while the color looks gorgeous, the ingredients are doing so much more for your complexion. Let’s face it—we expect our makeup to have nourishing qualities these days, and Gressa delivers.
