[ETUDE HOUSE] Nymph AURA Boosting Primer

Together with the Nymph AURA Volumer I purchased the Nymph AURA Boosting Primer from [ETUDE HOUSE]. I would recommend these products rather for normal or dull skin. I got oily skin and I don't think these products are very good for me. They aren't bad but I prefer a more matte finish.

Btw, they released some new products now: a Volumer Mist and the Volumer in #3 Transparent Water Aura.

Description: Makeup primer, specially formulated for glowing skin expression with balancing moisture level, supplies sheer, thin layer of dewy and plumped up skin. 
Whitening Effect + Wrinkle Improvement + SPF25/PA++
The packaging has the same design as the Volumer. The Boosting Primer comes in a very light violet/ silver tube with a twist-off lid. The tube contains 30g!
You just need to squeeze a proper amount out of the tube and spread it over your face.
Some ingredients are Water, Zinc Oxide, Aluminum Hydroxide, Adenosine, Xanthan Gum, Caprylyl Glycol and other 'chemicals'.

The primer has a Peach Pink Tone and a lotion-like consistency. It's easy to spread over my face and brightens up my skin tone. My face looks brighter but also a bit pinkish afterwards. 
My skin looks more glowing but not too much. That's good and I prefer to use just the Boosting Primer under my BB Cream without the Volumer.
The scent is very nice as well. I like it!!
I use this primer just every once in a while coz it has no oil control which makes in not the right product for oily skin. But it brightens up my skin tone and gives me a more dewy look.

How to use: Apply primer to all over the face. With gently patting, let it melt on skin thoroughly. 

Price: around 15,- €/ US$20  
Bought at: eBay (BELLOGIRL)  

What I love: 
Nothing except for the scent and the 'dewy' look.

What I don’t like:  
It's not the perfect product for oily skin.

Will I buy this again? No, I won't!


  1. It's really unfortunate that it's not for oily skin. I was going to try that though. But I think I won't. P: Haha!

    1. I wouldn't recommend this product line for oily skin but that doesn't mean that you can't try it. Maybe it works better on your skin. =)
      I made the experience that even primers for oily skin haven't always a very good oil control... ><

  2. Apparently this product has glitter flexes in it. Is that true?

    Thank you for your review! I was wondering if I should get this product so I decided to search for reviews because I do ^^
