Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the VIEVE Skin Nova Instant Radiance Primer.
When I saw this I had one thing in mind, the Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter. I want that highlighting primer thing so bad but it’s very pricey and not something I feel like I’d use often so I couldn’t justify the purchase. But I got a mini size of this so I was excited to try it.
The way you use it is similar to the Charlotte Tilbury one, you can use it all over as a radiant primer or mix with foundation.
You can buy it from Cult Beauty for 37,26$
It only comes in this shade and it’s a sheer gold.
The mini size I have is a squeezy tube but the full size is a squeezy tube with a pump, for whatever reason I love that kind of packaging.
It has a strong jasmine scent which I love but if you are sensitive to scents it might bother you. It doesn’t linger.
The formula is very watery and the shimmer is quite subtle, you can wear it alone, mixed with a foundation, or as a primer.
I’ve been using it a lot as a primer because my skin has been pretty dry lately and it gives a beautiful glow, it’s very subtle so it doesn’t make me feel greasy.
It makes my skin feel plump and I love that it has skincare benefits, especially the niacinamide.
It doesn’t impact the lasting power of my foundation and it doesn’t break it.
You can apply it with your fingers, or a brush or a sponge. I use my fingers.
alone under foundation
It doesn’t make my foundation last more or less, it lasts until I take it off.

I really like this product, it makes my skin look very dewy and healthy and I love that it also treats my skin. The packaging is stunning and I love the scent. I don’t think I’d buy the full size because I don’t use these types of products enough but if you have dry skin you’ll love it.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
