One of Tula’s most iconic products is getting a glow up.
I’ve been using Tula’s Face Filter primer for years now and it’s a great item to wear either under makeup or just on its own thanks to the fact that its skincare driven.
This primer instantly smooths the look of uneven skin tone and redness for a filter-like appearance. It also has special glow particles that blur skin, leaving you with radiant skin. I have been loving this product during this pandemic since although I don’t wear makeup much anymore, this just smooths out my skin and adds a little extra to the way my skin looks and feels.
So just when I thought this couldn’t get any better, Tula re-releases it in a new formula.
Launching today, May 5, the Filter Primer instantly primes, blurs, and evens out the look of skin while also treating skin concerns like redness, discolouration, and dark spots over time.
Available in two sizes, 1 fl. oz. ($36 USD) and 2 fl. oz. ($56 USD), this product also comes in four different shades, plus a universal version. This primer should be used as your final skincare step (so after your SPF). You can either use it with makeup or without (I like just applying it as is since it does have a slight tint to it). This new version also includes the same formula as the original with the addition of their proprietary Super6 blend of prebiotics and probiotic extracts.
I received two shades from this new line, as well as the untinted one, named First Light. First up is Luna, which is for fair/light skin tones. Luna gives skin a glowy and filter-like appearance. It contains licorice, rosemary, chamomile, and their probiotic and probiotics. It is great for targeting the look of redness and will hydrate and smooth the look of uneven skin tone.
For medium skin tones, give Sunrise a shot. Sunrise contains licorice, chia seeds, and their prebiotic and probiotic complex. This one is great for nourishing skin and is perfect to hand on hand for the summer months if you are pale like me. I’ve tried both Luna and Sunrise and both work for me, but I do tend to gravitate more towards Sunrise since it adds a little bit of colour to the skin.
There is also Cosmos for deep skin tones, which is great for targeting the look of dark spots, and Magic Hour, which is good for medium/deep skin tones and is amazing for discolouration. Both of these shades have licorice and butterfly bush in them, in addition to their Super6 complex.
Now if you want something more universal in colour, then take a look at First Light, which is the non-tinted version. First Light also doubles as a sheer, golden illuminator and contains golden, light-infused pigments which release sheer illumination, giving skin a beautiful finish. First Light contains licorice, turmeric, and the Super6 complex.
Now although there are tinted versions of these, it wouldn’t replace your tinted moisturizer. It doesn’t really give you much coverage, it just sort of adds to your skin and what you have going on already. It will blur out and perfect any redness or discolouration, but if you are looking for more coverage, then you’ll need something extra on top of this.
With that being said, I know I’ve said on here a lot that I’ve been reaching for more tinted moisturizers and that has certainly been the case, but I really like this product for those days where all I’m doing is working from home and walking Ziggy. It’s something nice to throw on and I love how I can just wear this by itself or layered underneath a foundation.
If you are in the States and want to give it a shot, I highly recommend trying it out. Don’t forget, use code SHAYNA at checkout for 15% off your Tula.com order.
