I recently wrote about a number of Lumene Skin Care Products. Lumene also produces makeup and I just love their Lumene Premium Beauty Rejuvenating Makeup. You can find Lumene at CVS Pharmacies, Target Stores and at ULTA Beauty (particularly online). The Lumene Foundation is it is my new favorite makeup. Although marketed for women over 50, Lumene Rejuvenating Foundation is ideal for anyone with either dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles, or concerns about preventing fine lines and wrinkles. What I love most about this foundation is that it is very comfortable to wear. It provides a good measure of moisture and never feels dry or heavy. It blends well and has good staying power, again without ever getting heavy or sticky. I also had no issues with it settling into my pores or lines. Coverage is medium and I found that while a bit of my hyperpigmented areas from melasma showed through, the coverage was quite acceptable for me in terms of what I expect for normal everyday use.
A side bonus of the Lumene makeup, and why the company has chosen to target it at a later age group, is that it contains a peptide complex of Hexapeptide-8 (argireline)and Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4 (matrixyl). These are a couple of the complexes that have some documentation of effectiveness in wrinkle treatment. At the age of 40 and with wrinkles coming on, being able to provide some treatment actives to my skin through my makeup is quite attractive to me and is what led me to initially purchase the Lumene foundation.
Overall, I love the Lumene makeup! in many ways, it feels similar to my other current favorite Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Extreme. But at $22 for the Lumene product as compared to $35 for Estee Lauder, and with the additional treatment actives in it, the Lumene foundation is the better product and better value. If you have dry and aging skin, or have normal to dry skin and want some peptide action from your foundation, give this one a try.
