Tula’s Filter Primer

Tula Face Filter Primer

If you follow me, then you *know* my obsession with Tula runs deep. Truthfully, there are several Tula products I can’t live without, but today’s post is dedicated to one of my ride-or-die items during Summer – their “Filter Primer“. It’s essentially the only product I wear on my skin these days except for when I really feel like getting dressed up, which has been rare for me lately! I’ve gotten so used to how my skin feels with just wearing this, that I can’t ever convince myself to put on a full face of foundation anymore.

What is Filter Primer?

Tula’s Face Filter is a tinted primer that’s both lightweight and moisturizing. Although I think the original intent was for it to be worn underneath your makeup (as a primer), I find myself using it more as a tinted moisturizer and skip my foundation – especially in the summertime. While I was pregnant and couldn’t be bothered with makeup, this was essentially all I used. I love the way it makes my skin look and appreciate how it blurs and evens out my skin tone, leaving me with an illuminating glow. I can’t rave about this product enough!

My Tula code always works – it’s BRIGHTON for 15% OFF!

A few reasons why I love Filter Primer:

  • lightweight formula makes it great for summer or when I don’t feel like wearing a lot of makeup
  • moisturizing and an easy-to-apply consistency that blends well
  • buildable color that gives my skin a glowy, natural finish
  • mixes well with my SPF
  • doesn’t clog my pores (it’s non-comedogenic)
  • stays on all day for me, but doesn’t rub off on my clothes in my experience
  • clean and effective ingredients

NEW: Additional Shades for Filter Primer

I know a few of you who tried the primer when they first launched it said that it didn’t work for your skin – especially those of you that had a lighter skin tone. But they’ve recently revamped the primer to have multiple shades to match a wider range of skin tones. The primer now comes in 5 different varieties including one that’s non-tinted.

If you’re like me and loved the original shade of the primer, then you’ll like the “sunrise” shade in the new lineup – it’s essentially the old one with a new name. They also created a non-tinted one (called first light) if you love the formula but don’t want the color.
