Dr Murad Hybrids Primer and Eye Lift Review: Putting Murad into makeup!
News related: dr murad
Dr Murad is a skincare brand that does more than cleanse and moisturize the skin- there's a whole wealth of science and research behind every product, and a philosophy that is upheld throughout the brand. Dr Murad introduces his range as a three pronged approach- topical care, internal care and emotional self care. He does this by providing products for the skin, vitamins to ingest and a book which asks people to truly examine themselves and their lifestyle choices.
He calls his concept 'Eat Your water' and stresses that most of us aren't getting enough liquid- as we should be taking in water in other forms than water- that it's more easily absorbed through foods such as oranges for example. He says, '8 glasses a day can dehydrate you as you're running to the bathroom- eat your water with foods rich in amino acids and lipids'.
He's just launched his first ever makeup range, but naturally there's more to Dr Murad Hybrids than beauty alone. They're called Hybrids as he considers them 'skincare products with cosmetic benefits' and this includes two primers (one matte, one dewy) and two eye highlighters.
I've been playing with them for a few weeks now and am happy to share my full review with you now.
Dr Murad Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer- Dewy Finish Â£27 from Murad
Th interesting thing about both primers in the Hybrids collection is that they say they offer universal shade matching in an oil free formula. It feels really nice to apply- a lightly tinted lotion that sinks in easily and leaves the skin looking fresh and glowing. It works very well as a base for makeup, and I felt that this helped prolong the life of my blush and foundation. My skin appeared smoother and felt softer after use, and I did like the slightly glowing finish it gave me.
Dr Murad Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer- Matte Finish, Â£27 from Murad
The Hybrids Matte finish primer felt a little dryer to apply than the dewy version, but still had a nice consistency, Despite being matte, it didn't give me a one dimensional finish-which I liked- but it did seem a little light again, and despite the Adaptive Shade Technology I wonder if it would really work on a darker skintone. It worked very well as a subtle concealer and helped even out my skintone. I loved how it left my face totally devoid of shine, and would consider using this on its own, on days that I felt brave.
Dr Murad Hybrids Eye Lift Perfector, Â£25
I was intrigued about the Eye Lift Perfector, which aims to firm the skin around the eye area, hydrate, depuff AND contain a tint that conceals. I like the application dispense, a twist up click pen that dispenses product evenly and it was really handy at making dark circles vanish. I wasn't that sold on the moisturizing properties though, but did notice an immediate depuffing of the eye area (post heavy night out).
Dr Murad Hybrids Eye Lift Illuminator, Â£25
This is a great product- it brightens the eye with an interesting neutralizing violet formula- which is actually violet! This colour lifts and depuffs and is pretty fun to apply, as part of you thinks you're getting costumed up. I love how this works, and the colour wheel science feels very applicable when those shadows disappear! This is what I'd use if I was looking for immediate action, the Eye Lift Perfector is more for those who are used to a traditional tinted concealer.
You can get these from Murad, Feel Unique and Urban Retreat
